I am supposed to leave for Italy today and of course I feel absolutely terrible.

Since yesterday morning I have had this weird sensation that I need to keep yawning which makes it hard to talk to people because I just get the feeling in my jaw that I need to yawn.

I know it sounds crazy, but I am wondering if anyone else has had this. I read online and it said it could be MS or heart attack.

I have been sleeping just fine.

My blood pressure has been high for the past few weeks (140/90)
I also have pain in my chest/heart area (could just be stress)
Brain fog/dizzyness has been bad
Fatigue
Now this strange yawning sensation.

Hopefully there are good doctors in Italy if I need one...

That's a form of air hunger and very typical of Babesia. Try to enjoy your trip.
Lyme, Anaplasmosis, Myco P., highly suspect Bart, possible Babs

IGeneX IgM positive: 31++, 34+, 39 IND, 41++, 83-93+
IGeneX IgG negative: 31 IND, 34 IND, 39 IND, 41++++, 83-93 IND

Agreed, when I had this happening to me and I did the research, I came to the conclusion it was due to Babesia. It's a way the body tries to get more oxygen, as Babesia destroys red blood cells, which are the ones that carry oxygen throughout our body.

Combined with the stress of traveling, it's not surprising that you have an increase in symptoms. Do your best to detox well, rest lots, eat well and relax enough you can still enjoy your trip!

Also agree with the air hunger possibility. Yawning can be a response to needing more oxygen.



interestingly - it can also be Vagus nerve reaction. The vagus nerve is often affected when we have lyme and co's.


"If you yawn too much, this may be a sign of a vasovagal reaction--also known as vasovagal syncope, a common cause of fainting. The vagus nerve is located in your neck, chest and intestines. It regulates your heart and blood vessels. When it is stimulated, you begin to yawn excessively. "

My excessive yawning is more like Peteza's and not the air hunger type. Happens when I'm flaring and very tired mostly when I'm in bed.

Thank you so much everyone!! I made it to Italy and am feeling as good as I can. Fatigued, brain fog and lightheaded and still am yawning a lot.

I am not sure if it is exhaustion or air hunger but I am leaning towards air hunger.

My heart rate has been crazy along with this. It's skipping beats, beating hard and fast.

My LLMD didn't have time to talk to me before I left so her nurse called and said that she will talk to me after and said that I need to bring zithromax with me and take that if symptoms get bad. I get the feeling from her that she no longer thinks I have Lyme because of the negative DNA connexions test. The last thing she mentioned to me is that she thinks the test has been accurate so far for all her patients.. Maybe it's time for me to find someone else.. I have no idea what else these symptoms could be coming from if it ISN'T Lyme....

A second or even a third opinion is a good thing often! Maybe it's time to just be evaluated by another LLMD - if you like the one you are currently seeing, and they are correct according to others, then you can return to your original practitioner and know that they are on the right track. If they aren't, then you can change to whoever you saw that you were most impressed by.

I think we do ourselves a great disservice by not checking up on our docs. This is cutting edge treatments - and most are only able to go off of what they have personally seen - this does not make them wrong necessarily, as often those in the same area deal with the same strains, so treatments will be similar to most of their patients. But - there are those that just won't 'fit in' with the other patients because they did get infected with other strains, or have too many other issues along with the infections for the LLMD to be of "good" help with every thing we go through.
