Hi everyone, ill start by introducing myself, my name is Katie and im 18 years old, and from Maryland. I started having many symptoms of lymes since about
January of this year. At first I didn't suspect it was lymes, but then as I had more symptoms and did more research and am now 100% convinced I have it. It started off with the general tiredness, but then later on I started having more complicated symptoms, I was getting everyday headaches/head pressure associated with this term I came to find as "brain fog" I also noticed symptoms I've never had before, I had developed these things called eye floaters and everyday constant muscle twitches and spasms. Since then I've had joint cracking and pretty much everytime I go to move an arm or a leg it cracks. I also suddenly have frequent UTI's (which may or not be related) I went to see a Lymes specialist and she was convinced as well it was lyme. She started me on docycline, and that had no effect on me whatsoever. We then tried a combination of rifampin and something else that I can't remember the name of, I wasn't on that very long because my system did not tolerate it. I am now on Amoxicillin, I noticed that the headpressure felt a little better while on the Amoxicillin, but still noticed most of the other symptoms. At this point I'm afraid that anything I try is going to have no effect on me. This has taken over my whole life and I feel I can no longer be happy anymore. If anyone can give me some help or tell me their stories I'll gladly listen.
