Do you feel the balance/dizziness/weakness comes from POTS or the co-infections or all?
Did you ever have vision problems? Blurriness, and things moving in your vision?
My hormones are completely low too... Is this part of lyme? I've always been incredibly healthy and active 34 year old female... all of a sudden my progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, dhea and cortisol levels are so low. Off the charts.
Anyone have any idea if this is related?
Or tailbone pain? I guess the sky is the limit on what lyme can cause.
My POTS mainly just shows as raising my heart rate when I stand from sitting. I think I have a mild POTS.
I didn't have vision issues...although when I was on Mepron (previously) and I had the head pressure increase...it seemed to make things kind of fuzzy...heard to describe.
Yes, hormones are affected with lyme. All of mine tanked when lyme hit. Now I was at the age of perimenopause anyway...but it's interesting that I had no symptoms prior...And then bam...lyme hit and never had another period again.
You have tailbone pain? Oh my - did I ever. I don't read much about
it but mine was really bad. I thought at first that it was from the fact that I lost so much muscle that my butt muscles weren't protecting my butt anymore.
Mine was strange. It didn't hurt just walking around. And when I sat down...it was still okay...until I stood up again...and then it really hurt.
I had it for over a year. It went away with Bartonella treatment.
