Hi there,
Things are getting better very very slowly. Now on Cymbalta 60mg, and Ativan a small dose at night to sleep. Still in a bad way with anxiety/depression/brain/memory issues. Some physical issues like achy muscles, H/A, twitching, hearing my heartbeat in my ears,weak, fatigue. Just wondering for those with Chronic Lme and Co's.

On days that I was too weak to garden, the physical issues bothered me more.

On days when I couldn't find my way home, the mental issues bothered me more.

I've been sorting through unrelated mental issues for 22 years, and I was a professional dancer, so the physical shocked me more. To go from being able to dance an evening length work in June of 2015, to spite this weird slow loss of interest in moving, and getting weaker, to only being able to walk 10 yards in February, and the horrid pain that caused many sleepless nights, I think the physical was harder. But, it has been interesting to consider that some of the mental stuff I have been experiencing hasn't been the PTSD but the infection talking. That has been hard. Great question.
Questing Health: Dr. #1 - Western Blot and Elisa from a non-lyme lab nearly 100% rules out lyme, Dr. #2 - Naturopath who is symptom free from lyme - clinical diagnosis of lyme and co-infections, Dr. #3, Infectious Disease Dr., Negative blood work rules out lyme and she said "don't you think now that your aneurysm is repaired these other symptoms will clear up?", Dr. #4, Dr. in Chinese med. LYME!

For a few months, my psychological symptoms were worse...anxiety, depression - I was anxiously depressed - crying every single day...I thought I was losing my mind...

After that got better...then my physical symptoms took the forefront - and still are - the nerve pain, vibrations, shivers...those are my most troubling symptoms.

I just had a 48 hour crying episode...so the pysche issues BY FAR the worse for me....oh wait...

Last Friday night in bed(after being VERY weak earlier in the day), I had roaming chest pain/shooting cramps and a racing AND pounding heartbeat. Mild aching in back directly behind the pain in front therefore I thought TRULY that I was having a massive heart attack. Oh, and a sensation that someones fist wound around my stomach, w/air hunger. I did NOT go to E.R as this has happened several times before only being told, "your heart is fine, its just acid reflux/heartburn".....

Oh dear, the inability to control my moods, or the 'fear Im dying of a heart attack' episodes...hmmm???
