So I've been on treatment for lyme disease for about
8 months and slowly getting better except for occasional fatigue and recently have started getting this pain behind my knee which coincided generally around a 5 hour trip I took and another a couple week later.
I have a lump scar there from 2 years ago where I accidently grazed it (and I scar very easily) so I thought it was that but I developed this squeezing n painful ache inside my leg that would discomfort and make it hard to stand on. This built and at the same time I got lightheadedness and dizziness that I haven't really had for 6 months or so and a shortness of breath.
I went to doctor and managed to get an ultrasound for bakers cyst that came back negative of anything bad/dvt but the guy did note that my veins are a big larger than normal there and that he didn't know what it is.
But since then I have got a growing sporadic intense cough which I went to hospital for and got chest X-Ray that came back negative (but the lady told me chest X-rays don't always show clots) and blood tests that came back negative for whatever they were searching for, more fatigue and over the past week strange feelings in my head like intense head pressure, blood in my stool, numb feelings on head, nausea, pulsing head aches on the right side and feeling distant and unclear of thoughts also with floaters that flash up crazily all over vision and this all happens at random times each day getting worse. I've also been having stitch like feelings in my ribs that last for half an hour and have been sleeping for lik 13 hours each day which is ridiculous.
Over last past days it has gotten so intense especially with headaches, head feelings, nausea and fatigue and a blood taste in my mouth that occur every now and then.
I'm pretty scared of it being a blood clot that has gone up to my chest or brain but they seem to have done the tests so I don't know or maybe possibly this is a herx from continuous antibiotic treatment but I never got anything like this before , I'm not sure, very scared though and unsure of what to do.
Does anybody have experience with testing of blood clots or blood clot experience with lyme and shed any light for anyone going through this or wondering?
And could you get such symptoms from a herx or kinda flare up even blood in stool , I dunno what to do
