I am currently being treated for lyme, and for the past four years I have not been able to tolerate the heat at all. Is this something that I will have to deal with forever, or will this go away after I am treated?

Are you almost done with the treatment, and has a lot of your other symptoms improved? I have been sick with neurological lyme for four years, and I just started treatment two months ago. I am getting bicillin injections three times a week and then next month I will be changing my treatment to an iv pic. I am also on oral antibiotics and a lot of supplements. My LLMD believes that with a year of this aggressive treatment many of my symptoms will improve. How are you doing after a year of treatment?

Thank you so much for your reply, that is really amazing that your daughter is symptom free. What kind of treatment does the Hansa center do?

I've read that heat intolerance can be caused by adrenal fatigue. I used to love the heat, but now I am only comfortable in a narrow temperature range. This started for me when I contracted RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome; thankfully it is in remission right now) and has only gotten worse with time. I strongly suspect that chronic Lyme burns out the adrenal glands in a very subtle/slow way so that we hardly notice until the adrenals are almost all the way shut down. I'm starting a hormone treatment next week (for balancing female hormones) that may also help some with the adrenals...so we'll see if that helps heat intolerance and any of my other symptoms too.
