Since July I have been sick with what I thought to be EBV(pain in throat and liver, immense fatigue). However a few months ago I came across lyme and I found myself saying "check" to many of the symptoms including a weird elongated red rash I had at the onset which could be EM. And some of the symptoms were not typical for EBV (ear ringing, karpal tunnel, pain in achilles).
Since then I have had several tests for Lyme. 3 elisas and one extended package which I paid for myself which included 3 special type of Elisas and two western blots. All negative, results are in a different post. I am fairly confident that if I do have Lyme antibodies are not being produced. One extended EBV test revealed that I had it more then a year ago and it did not reactivate.
However, my condition was slowly improving so I put Lyme out of my mind, untill about
two weeks ago, when my balance was suddenly completely messed up, like I am on a boot the whole time. This was joined by a weird pinching feeling on the back of my head. and sting on my scalp. Soon after I had the smallest flu which lasted just 2 days (But I think it strained my immune system). However the headaches and drunk feeling have not cleared yet, and barely diminished. In addition my fatigue level is nearly the same as when my problems started. Especially the dizzyness is debilitating. So now I find myself looking for answers again. And I have become completely disillusioned with my GP.
Does anyone recognize this drunk feeling? and weird stinging headaches, could they be part of Lyme?
What is the chance that my immune system is supressed by Lyme or EBV?
Thanks in for your time, Stef
