My Lyme started in June 2009 with flu like symptoms, high fever, chills, lower back pain and night sweats. I was hospitalized in July and tested positive for Lyme. I've completed doxycyline, amoxicillin and IV-Rocephin treatments. I'm still suffering with brain fog, and severe numbness in my face, arms, hands, legs, feet, chest and lower back. I have a radiating electric feeling in my lower back, almost as if adrenalin is dripping onto a nerve which stimulates or pulses the numbness throughout my body.
I've had MRI's of my brain and spine which look normal, however my lumbar puncture oliglocinal bands seem to indicate possible MS. I was taking Gabapentin to manage the numbness until it gradually became less and less effective. I have weened myself off the Gabapentin so I could determine if my condition is worsening. I have been working with an infectious disease doctor and nuerologist and plan on scheduling an appointment with a local LLMD here in CT.
I am curious to see what others in this forum are experiencing with lyme related neuropathy (Numbness).
Grateful for your comments.
