I got Lyme Disease for the first time
(twice) back in the early 80's with bulls eye rash both times-- treated immediately with Doxy and was (apparently) fine thereafter.
Right around that same time I also got a very mild concussion from an accident.
What's curious, is that FOR YEARS afterwards--- up until about 7 months ago-- I always got these dull, nagging headaches-- once a month or less-- that would last for several days.
I always attributed them to smoking too many cigarettes-- or not drinking enough water, etc.--- the usual suspects.
In addition to the headaches, I also would get occasional bouts of this weird buzzing feeling in the back of my head and a minor bit of dizzyness when I layed down.
I attributed this weirdness to residual effects of the concussion. But really, I didn't know what was causing it. Since I was athletic and healthy and feeling great--- except for the headaches-- I never had it checked out by a doctor. Life went on.
Now--- to jump ahead to 2011. I obviously was reinfected with Lyme in either 2010 or 2009.
Here's what's interesting: I just realized that once I started my serious, recent treatment for Lyme, these nagging headaches have disappeared-- never to return-- unless herx related.
Also-- once my recent and Lyme related head pressure, brain fog, vertigo symptoms went away-- due also to my current and agressive Lyme treatment-- the weird head buzzing I had from the 80's, has stopped as well.
Could it be that the concussion wasn't the cause? And instead the fact is: that I was NEVER completely cured from my 1980's Lyme infection and thus carried the 'headache' and 'weird head buzzing' Lyme critters with me all this time?
It's just so amazing that these 20 year old 'symptoms' --- that I attributed to 'something else' ---- are gone now.
Thoughts anyone ???
