Hi there floridagal47,
Welcome to the forum! I am so sorry that you have Lyme, but happy that you found us. There are a few things that come to mind when I read your post. Lyme messes with the entire endocrine system sometimes and the fast heartrate you had makes me think that you may have thyroid problems. Have you had your thyroid checked yet? Your adrenals should also be checked as well. Also, the weakness could be caused from low Vitamin D levels. Many with Lyme Disease and Fibro have low Vitamin D levels so you should get that checked as well. Magnesium supplements are a good place to start to help with sleep. I had really bad twitching and muscle spasms and I was also having trouble sleeping. I started taking magenesium supplements and it has helped me tremendously.
