Thanks, Angel and Borderlyme, yes, I suppose these increased and intensified since starting Lyme treatment -- but I'd say that covers about
a 3 yr period. And it is not only at night, it is daily also. Again, I distinguish between 'shock-like' feelings, more like a shooting electrical current -- I do not know how else to describe this.
But Angel, yes, I also get shocked and shock others more than is common. Even in the summer I cringe right before touching things in the grocery store because I know I will get shocked.
Do I need to keep keeping on -- with the abx -- and just truck along, or do you think I should see the neurologist? I have other neruological problems that could be from Lyme, but could also be from my back -- reminder, my spine has collapsed. It itches constantly along my entire spine and I found that that can indicate nerve damage.
I guess, most important, now that I have a new flex benefit card for this year, I will get the igenex babs test. I stopped taking my babs abx awhile back due to the cost and I believed I was rid of it. Now I realize it could be preventing progress w/ Lyme. So I'm balancing the cost of the test vs the meds and feel I should at least find out if I still have babs and then decide to take more abx if I do.
Borderlyme: I understand that Lyme can mimick MS, it is the possible cause I am concerned with. I have been taking LDN for this, but not as I should, again, due to the expense.
Opinions please on the neurologist -- am I potentially
opening a whole other ugly can of worms? Again, already overwhelmed. And because I have neuro-Lyme, I don't know why my LLMD can't determine anything about
