so how did it went? Have you been diagnosed with Borrelia infection?? I have totally similar symptoms (feeling of warmer breath than I would usually have). I typically have this feeling right before I get ill (flu), but this time it stays for months. Doctors dont recognize nothing such as warm breath, they use only body temperature as a valid symptom. So I struggle to figure out what it might be, because I know I do not have such a warm breath when I am healthy.
Sould I consider Lyme disease then? But wouldnt we notice the classic bulls-eye rash if that what the case of Lyme disease?
Welcome to the forum, John.
If this is your only symptom, I'm guessing it's acid reflux, which could be due to any number of factors - a food sensitivity, intolerance, GERD, leaky gut, Candida, etc. It's not specific to Lyme, in fact, I don't believe mine is directly caused by the Lyme, but rather the imbalance of gut bacteria and acid from antibiotics and the subsequent leaky gut and Candida.
The bullseye rash does not always appear - official CDC quote is 20-30% of cases, but some specialists believe the bullseye is missing in 70% of cases, which is why so many people don't even know they have Lyme.
If you have other symptoms, please read the New to Lyme thread sticky-posted at the top of the forum. If its just the acid reflux, I personally recommend an elimination diet to find the cause, rather than chronic use of medication.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
