Okay thanks a bunch guys :) Its comforting to know quite a few others have experienced this as well. As long as I dont lose complete loss of feeling in my feet & hands I guess I just have to kinda deal until I get to the finish line. I was thinking def nerves too since my whole nervous system just seems to be hit extra hard by lyme considering all the numbness, burning, etc. Ive dealt with. I take the diff B vitamins and ALA (maybe some others for nerves too but cant remember specifically).
If it is to do with thyroid, I think more 'hypo' is possibly correct. Ive been losing weight more than anything lately and I always hear people with thyroid problems gain weight and find it hard to lose.
Another possibility, Im just gonna throw this out there...is I think I possibly exposed my babesia. I think I might be at that "layer of the onion" now. Im on an abx vacation at moment but I had recently did a lyme targeted treatment and since then I had alot of symptoms subside but some other weird ones have popped up. I.E. bouts of sweating, chest tightness, bouts of my heart beating fast/heart palps, tinnitus, head pressure. I actually tested positive for babesia through labcorp so I know I have it. Regarding bart, we're on the fence the whether I have that or not!
All the symptoms I originally thought were bart (burning, rib pain,) could very well be lyme itself. Alot of people say the rib pain is bart but rib pain is actually more specific of lyme from diff symptom lists. Also, the burning can be lyme! For awhile I was attibuting it all to bart! I dont have a positive bart test but I know that dont mean anything. This lyme & co mess is so confusing! This reminds me though, I have a good symptom list saved that another member had posted months ago that I love that is from a reputable source. I am going to re-post it for any members that havent seen it....
Also, I hope its okay to post a link to info I read from another forum that I stumbled upon on the internet (if not, Mods plz let me know and I will edit my post). But this guy is a success story. He is member name "Squeezy". I had stumbled on his posts while researching 'fast heartbeat lyme' and he was experiencing alot of stuff that I am. He was treated by Dr H in NY (I would love to go see him!) and once he was treated for his babesia he states "he is feeling the best shape of his life". I clicked on his actual profile and read all his last posts but here are a couple in case anyone wants to check out.
Success story ;) !! (scroll down to member Squeezy) .....www.mdjunction.com/forums/lyme-disease-support-forums/general-support/680238-rebabesia-treatment/limitstart/10#2811926
This is how my heart has been beating-like his was doing!www.mdjunction.com/forums/lyme-disease-support-forums/general-support/574365-fast-heartbeat
Sooo I guess its a toss up between my nerves, hypo-thyroid, or the infections themselves causing.
All in all, hot showers & that heating pad sound like a plan for my freezing cold feet!
Thanks again everybody
