Would appreciate any help after finding a lot of people here in a similar situation as I am.
Just received my Lyme test back from Quest and the doctor says nothing there. But I was reactive for 41 kD IgG Band.
Live in the Midwest and traveled to Oregon / Wash in October. Since then I've experienced incredibly swollen tonsils for eight or more weeks, fatigue that is getting worse, a heart rate that is bottoming out in the 55-60bpm compared to my average around 72, dizziness, and a loss of balance when I close my eyes or combined the dizziness.
The doc says nothing wrong. After a round of amoxicillin, for the tonsils, they've gone from the point that I could barely swallow to still being enlarged – but no puss.
I'm extremely worried about the dizziness and loss of balance throughout the day. And the fatigue sets in at times where I can barely get out of bed without really having a convo with myself.
I didn't have a typical bite or bullseye rash, but I got very sick on the trip to Oregon. 3-4 days of throat, head, neck, and then stomach issues. I had a red rash on one hand that was itchy, slight pain, spread and eventually went away.
All very non-specific symptoms, but with one reactive result in the Lyme test it seems I should try the other test and see if I can dial in. My primary care physician seems completely uninterested. Said to have some caffeine to boost my bpm and come back in a month if I still have issues.
