Oh my God, this lower back pain is out of this world. Please someone tell me you have experienced this?? It is right below hip level but above tail bone level. It is barely tolerable. It was only on the left of my spine but is now radiating out towards my left and right hips. It also has like a feeling of fullness if that makes any sense. It isn't relieved much by change of positions. Laying seems to be best though. It is hard to walk at times.
I am also feeling so stiff right now I'm scared my whole body will lock up or something!
Also my fever is still going up to 100.5 f every day for hours and then slowly seems to go down. How long can fevers last with Lyme? I was expecting the fevers to stop after almost two weeks on doxy.
And my throat is so scratchy and sore every day.
I am still out of this world exhausted and fatigued. And have many other symptoms.
Some improved symptoms: cognitive things (am able to follow conversation a little better, not misspeaking as much, not forgetting why I went into a room as much), have been less weepy, have been less anxious, have noticed less electric shock sensations overall in my wrists and legs, muscles haven't been as tense/sore, vision is sometimes less foggy.
I was tested for the following coinfections: anaplasma phagocytophilium Dna pcr, e. Chaffeensis HME igg and igm, babesia microti ab panel igm and igg by Labcorp by my primary care. They were all negative. Do you know if there is a standard lab test for bartonella that I could ask him for while I wait to see a LLMD?
I am worried about
other possible coinfections and still awaiting an LLMD appointment. Any thoughts on the above would be so greatly appreciated.
