I've had scoliosis
since a child, had always believed it to be mild, but it is now severe. Very severe. It starts at the top of my neck (one side of my face is slightly forward) all the way to my tail bone. And one side of my pelvis is substantially lower on one side. I have 2 signifcant curves and rotoscoliosis in that my spine not only curves, it twists and rotates in those curves.
So I've experienced a lot of neck and back pain most of my adult life. My neck pain (have several herniated or crushed disks) had been much improved up til the time of THAT tick bite in May 2007. Also, my back pain has increased -- not necessarily more severe than before, but severe and much different than before. Also get massive muscle spasms all over my back and on my sides.
Judging from my xrays, I can see why it is worsening.
My question is this: When back and neck pain are associated with, CAUSED, and/or symptoms of Lyme, what exactly is it that is causing the pain? ie; what has the lyme attacked that causes this pain? ie; Does Lyme attack the spine in some way? For example, could Lyme have made my scoliosis worse?
2) Mental illness: My psychiatric (NOT psychological) symptoms are worsening significantly. Can't try to describe them here (altho we have in past posts). My mental/emotional illness feels out of control and totally unmanageable.
There is a lot on here about ammonia on the brain -- seems it's usually related to cognitive issues and brain fog. Im not talking about these. I'm talking about what feels like a complete and total mental/ psychiatric breakdown. Like I'm going whacko.
Like my mind is out of control.
I know there are certain treatments for these 2 LYme issues, for example antibiotics along w/ certain diet and detoxes.
Here is my question: If I am properly treated for Lyme + co-infections, and IF I am able to be cured of Lyme, WILL those 2 issues naturally resolve? Or will I be stuck w/ them?
