Hi, I am a 46 year old male. For the last 8 months I have had some strange health issues. I was completely healthy until then. The first symptoms were a general feeling of unwell, change in voice, brain fog, itchy skin, nausea, headaches, rattling/buzzing feeling in my chest and face, etc.
I then started to get weakness in my legs and pain in my thighs and legs. I then experienced a burning pain in my upper back from shoulder to shoulder.
I still have many of these symptoms today, but now I also have a tremor in my upper body and twitching in my calves. If I go for a jog or try to workout the calf twitching gets worse about
an hour after the workout and then I experience pain in my upper legs. Somewhat of a deep muscle pain.
I also experience a pain in my anal area. This is most pronounced when I lay on my back in bed. It keeps me from falling asleep.
I also suffer from anxiety and insomnia. I can usually fall asleep, but I wake up around 4 or 5 in the morning and I am unable to fall back to sleep.
I have had all types of blood tests and most everything is normal. I am seeing a naturopath that has me on multi-vitamins, probiotics, calcium powder, magnesium powder, vitamin D liquid, fish oil, etc.
I have had a brain MRI that did show lesions in the periventrical and subcortical region, numerous for my age. These are very small lesions. There are no large pronounced lesions. My spinal tap was normal. EMG normal. Spine X-ray normal.
The reason I come to this forum, not only because of my symptoms, but I saw another neuro for a second opinion in CA. She ran a Lyme Western Blot. The only thing that showed present was IGG P41 ab was present or abnormal.
My research on the internet says that most that are familiar with lymes would say this is proof I have lymes. Should I move forward with the Ingenix test? I have not spoken to my neuro about
this, she has been out of town for the holidays.
I live in Nevada, but I was in Montana hiking etc a several months before my health issues started. I don't remember any bites, but I have had some weird red bumps on my arms, back, buttocks and legs of late.
