sometimes I feel fine, like today when I got up all was ok...Then around 3 o├žlock in the afternoon, I am just sitting all of a sudden my muscles stiffen up (like a robot movements), my heart races, I become dizzy, off balance, anxious, and extremly tired. I am on amocillin abx for 30 days I am on day 26 now... My question is does anyone get a sudden onset of symptoms out of no where, and what kind of symptoms? And I get this slight but reallyslight jerk of the mouth any one get this symptom?

Yes, that happens. Symptoms can hit you with no warning. You can wake up and feel fine, then crash mid day and feel all your symptoms and you can wake up and feel awful and feel better by the end of the day. It is this illness. It can show up whenever it wants to. Lyme can have all sorts of weird symptoms that can come and go and come again. Amox isn't a very strong abx for Lyme, but it seems like maybe you caught it early and why you are only on 30 days. If you are still having these symptoms you should contact your Dr and should continue on meds longer than 30 days. Rule of thumb is to stay on meds until you are symptom free and then to stay on them another 2 months.

Yes, Lyme and the other tick borne infections can behave like this. The symptoms can hit you out of nowhere. It can also be a herx reaction from the die-off of bacteria caused by the antibiotics. It can be difficult to pin down what the cause is. My best help is just to drink a lot of fluids throughout the day after taking my antibiotics.

It is very common to crash midday at around 230 or 3. I would just make it at work until 230, come home and nap and wake up feeling a little and somedays alot better. After being in treatment for a year, I nap only once or twice a week. Hopefully, that is a sign I am going in the right direction.
