MOst of the above, but I will sum up the way Lyme feels to me, NOT including the infections and illnesses it can lead to. Just the Lyme itself if you get what I mean, ie; when I know it is Lyme acting up and not another illness or issue caused by Lyme:
Difficult to properly describe the 'buzzing', 'throbbing', fuzzy movement throughout my body. Sore, achey, throbbing entire mouth and jaws. Again, a kind of movement inside my body will distinguish to me the difference in my Lyme and my babesia and CEBV.
TOTAL body aches and inflammation type feelings-- similar to a flu, but more inflamed. Throbbing and 'buzzing' -- something boiling and moving under my skin.
Incapacity to concentrate, comprehend what I'm reading (or doing), and remember.
I have all the symtoms that Mystery Lyme has listed. However, I attribute many of these to incompetencies and other illnesses directly caused by Lyme.
God bless and hope this helps.
