Okay so I need some opinions from you that know about
Lyme. I'll try to keep it as short as possible. First off I am 20 years old, and I'm from Kentucky. So I have been dealing with so many symptoms for almost 2 years now and I've been to doctor after doctor and no answers. When I was living with my parents I stayed in the basement where I pulled 3 or 4 ticks off of me that I rmebeer. I didn't think anything of it. I never had the bullseye rash & I don't remember having flu like symptoms. I'm extremity frustrated and everything has fallen apart for me.
I've always been a healthy person and very active. It all started for me whenever I moved out on my own. Me and my pregnant girlfriend moved into a apartment and had a great job that I started in less then a week. My first day in the apartment was great & exciting. Then the next day I woke up and haven't felt right since. This was all about
2 months after being bitten by the last tick that I remember pulling off of me. I wondered if maybe the apartment may have had mold in it which maybe triggered the Lyme disease. It began with just feeling spacey. I just didn't feel right. My vision just didn't look like it should. I guess you could label that as brain fog. So I began to panic because I knew I was not gonna be able to start my new job feeling like that so I was determined to figure out what it was in time to start my job. Well that didn't happen... I went to a doctor that didn't know what was wrong with me. He may have thought I just had an inner ear infection so he put me on medication for that. Well I began to have crazy mood swings which would be my 2nd symptom. I was mad at the world and still kinda am. I never figured it out in time to start work so I went anyways.
My 2nd day of orientation I had a panic attack in front of a class of 60 because I had to stand up in front of the class.. which is not like me at all! i played it off like it was something else because I was embarrassed to admit I had a panic attack. Work told me to figure out what it was and bring a doctor note when I was ready to come back. Soo first I went to a cardiologist and even though my heart was throwing palpations nothing came back bad. I didn't know what to do at this point and my job called me back for another orientation so I agreed to come and brought a doctors note from the cardiologist saying everything was fine, even though I knew it wasn't.
So I began working and continuing to see doctor after doctor with no answers.. I worked for a year and felt like I was dying ever single day.. over the course of the year I had so many symptoms by then and I couldn't work anymore so I quit and moved back in with my family.. which sucks because I loved my job. But over the course of that year the symptoms I have dealt with is
1. Extreme fatigue
2. Unrefreshing sleep
4. Mood swings, anxiety, sever depressions
5. Dazed/ dream like state. Feel like I drunk some beer honestly.
6. Feeling spaced out. Constantly find myself staring into space
7. Migrating muscle pains. Sometimes sharp, sometimes stinging, and sometimes burning sensation
8. Headaches every day that only last a few minutes.
9. Very bad sweats whenever doing barely anything
10. Brain fog, just overall all cognitive decline.
11. Frequent urination
12. Constant muscle twitching
13. Balance issues.
14. Poor circulation. Wake up almost every single night with my arm asleep even if I'm not laying on it.
15. Red breakouts on my face
16. Eating binges. Feel as though my blood sugar is low even when it isn't.
17. Air hunger
18. Sore throat that comes and goes
19. Tingling fingers that are barley noticeable
20. Racing heart beat for no reason at times
21. Testicular pain
22. Vibration sensation coming from feet.
23. Daytime sleepiness.
24 Joint pain. This one I'm kinda not sure about
. Most people with Lyme seem to say joint pain is there very worst symptom. I do have some joints that hurt sometimes but it's nothing like my muscle pains. I have knee pain that goes away, ankle pain at times, & shoulder pain.
So that's basically it. After having so much blood work that things that have came back is
1. Extremely low vitamin D
2. Low fsh hormone
3. Blood in urine
4. High Uric acid.
5. Low testosterone. My testestrone was only 220...
& also I was tested for Lyme which came back negative of course..
If anyone takes the time to read through this and reply I would really appreciate it. I know it was kinda long but like I said it's been a long difficult 2 years.. I'm really in need of some help and I just don't know what to do anymore.
