What is going on with me? Here are my symptoms/story
Feb - Lyme test equivocal with 3 bands after months of stomach issues, ringing ears, aches and palpitations. Primary care refuses to treat.
Feb-June 1st llmd. Symptoms stop. Vitamins no other treatment
July sudden fatigue - put on thyroid meds and very low dose hydrocortisone
August - heat intolerance and dizzy
Sept - dizzy heart palps heat intolerance, feeling like I am falling. Llmd #1 offers no treatment options on to llmd #2 blood work reveals hyperthyroid, thyroid meds stopped
October/November. Lyme test negative???. Babesia and Bart just below positive range. Started on doxy Zith mepron. feeling of shortness of breath when walking, dizzy, no heat tolerance (can't even get hot shower), ear ringing, eye floaters, muscle pain in face, feeling hot around neck in AM, muscles sore to touch, mild joint pain, and heart pounding (heart rate rises upon standing but no more than 20 beats, BP does not drop).
Is this Bart, Lyme, herx, babesia, thyroid, adrenals, pots????? I am almost to the point I can't work and I am very scared. Next appt with llmd soon and I want to be armed with suggestions and ideas. Anyone with these symptoms? I am detoxing with lemon water and burbur. It does take a slight edge off when it's really bad but does not make symptoms go away even after multiple doses. Thanks for any input.
What 3 bands did the first lyme test show? Were they lyme specific bands?
So your first LLMD only prescribed vitamins...nothing to treat the infection? Did he think you don't have lyme?
What were your labs showing when you were put on thyroid meds (for hyPOthyroid) ...and now what are you labs (FT3, FT4, TSH) - now that the LLMD is saying it's hyPER thyroid?
Did tests show low cortisol - and that's why hydrocortisone was prescribed?
