Hi Everyone !!

I was bitten by a tick in October 2008.
I got no rash and the tick was found and removed within 24 hrs.
I've had no symptoms of any kind for a year and a half now, but just lately I've been getting pinpricks all over my body regularly, and sometimes I get great stabbing pains in my muscles. My short term memory is really bad, but sometimes I think that is the result of having been unemployed for almost 2 years, some technical jargon from my previous job not being quite as "on the tip of my tongue" as it used to be. I'm having problems sleeping too, and I've always been a good sleeper. My arm and leg muscles feel very strange, hard to describe except to say that they feel like how a tooth feels in the initial stages of decay ; there is a "presence" about the tooth despite that it has not begun to ache severely. Does this make any sense ? My arms and legs have this strange presence about them, some kind of hightened brain awareness I seem to have about them, yet no real pain other than the pinpricks and occasional stabbing pains. I had 2 nagative blood tests done 6 months apart, the first came a couple days after the initial bite. I've had no treatments of any kind, no antibiotics, no confirmation by any Doctor that I had Lyme.

I'm curious what you all think. I have NO other symptoms of any kind at this time. I've done extensive reading about Lyme's at myriads of incredible Lyme websites. I saw the "under our skin" movie too ; it scared the hell out of me.

I'd also really like to have a few LLMDs in the Southern NH area if anyone can supply me with them.

Thankyou all so much for your time

I see a specialist in Boston. I am 20 minutes north of Boston in North Andover, MA so you can't be too far from me. It takes about 3 months to get an appointment, but it is worth it and he will treat you based on symptoms alone if he thinks you have lyme. I have sent a lot of people to him and they are all 100% well now. I am a different case. I got well after 3 years, but I relapsed. I had it for over 5 years misdiagnosed and undiagnosed so it took me much longer to get better, but it would be worth your time to go if you think you have lyme.

I can send you his info via e-mail if you'd like.

Hi Norville, there is a medical word for what your describing that simples translates to a **** or unusual sensation. I have it in both my thighs from Lyme, it makes it so I don't want to walk, it's just a strange feeling. It doesn't seem to get worse, sometimes it gets better but it always comes back. You can put out your symptoms but I don't think your ever going to find someone who is going through exactly what you are experiencing. People with chronic lyme - people who weren't able to kill the bacterial infection when it was killable - all experience the disease differently. Some have other diseases like B-microti and bartenellosis mixed in and whatever else the tick had when it bit them. I can tell you that for the **** sensation you are experiencing in your muscles it's best to ask you doctor for something that will help you forget about the sensation like Tramadol. You can still function but you won't always be fixated on this nagging sensation that just won't go away and nobody seems to understand. It sounds like your experiencing some brain fog also. Words that used to be easy to find are now more difficult, instead of being able to find the word you now have to describe what it is your looking for and then someone will chime in with the word; for example "I need to put this in...that thing that keeps food cold." Then someone will surely chime in sarcastically with a refridgerator! My biggest problem is I need to recheck paragraphs that I type because I will find that I have missed words in every single sentence and have to insert the words my brain just skipped right over. The only thing that seems to help brain fog is long term antibiotic treatment. The problems sleeping thing is extremely common for Lyme suffers also. Goodluck.

The system automatically takes out those kinds of words. I will go ahead and delete your second post here since it's not allowed.

I think the filtering software has a dirty mind.
