Thanks for your input everyone! I am still pretty sick with the cold.
Right now its hard to tell which symptoms are from the cold or lyme. I know the congestion and runny nose obviously are, but I am still really dizzy and "out of it" feeling and I am assuming it's lyme or a combination.
One really strange thing that started for me is this weird painful sensation on my scalp. It just feels sensitive.
I have read some posts about it on the forums but I guess no one really knows what it comes from? How long does it last? It's super annoying..
I've had the scalp burning/sensitivity too. I posted about
it recently. It lasted a week or two and then subsided and returned a few times since. At first I thought it was a new symptom for me, but now I remember having that when my chronic Lyme symptoms first appeared in 2009.
I'm still not sure if it's a neuro Lyme symptom, a coinfection symptom, or symptom of toxins. When it's really bad it feels like my brain is on fire and toxins are trying to come out via my scalp. I had some mild hair loss around the same time, which contributed to my toxin theory.
I'm treating Lyme, bartonella, babesia, and just added more herbs for C. Pneumonia. Using Buhner's. I'm not on abx. Most of my symptoms seem like bartonella or neuro Lyme to me. I haven't had any night sweats or air hunger since before I started treatment, so I figure I'm not really hitting babesia yet.
