Hi I hope everyone is doing well. I am still Lyme Free and working hard
Yesterday I was in my Naturopath group going over one my cases about a patient I have who thinks she has Lyme but also have some serious mental health issues. She certainly has some sort of personality disorder, so was asking my piers on their insight on how to treat her.
Well one ND mentioned a condition called Pyroluria. I've never heard of it so researched it and was quite shocked at all the conditions this one genetic condition can cause.
In the article, there is a mention of Lyme.
Anxiety, nervousness, pronounced mood swings, low stress tolerance, depression, panic attacks, motion sickness, general loss of appetite, social withdrawal, memory loss, episodic anger/temper outbursts, severe inner tension, insomnia, seizures, tremors, migraines, acne, irregular menstruation, impotence in males, disordered perception, eosinophilia, dyslexia, hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, loss of reality, increased sensitivity/intolerance to sound, light, smell and touch, frequent unexplained nausea, joint pain - specifically knee/leg pain, restless leg syndrome, fatigue, poor dream recall, stitch in side, digestive disturbances (abdominal tenderness, constipation), Irritable bowel syndrome, gluten intolerance, glucose intolerance/hypoglycaemia, anaemia, food/environmental allergies, delayed onset of puberty, suicidal tendencies, sensitivity to medications, pessimism, hyperactivity, emotional lability.
Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, ADHD, Alcoholism, Autism, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Epilepsy, Aspergers, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Lyme disease.
There are varying degrees of Pyroluria; expression of this condition can be mild to severe or borderline, depending on genotypes, level of toxic environmental exposure, and complicated by the presence of other genetic defects, such as Histadelia, Histapenia and Hypercupremia. Signs and symptoms will vary between individuals.
