since december of last year i have not felt well. ive been to numerous doctors, had blood test..they seem fond of the cbc blood test in particular. they cant diagnose me im told they dont know or that they found nothing wrong. ive been feeling worse as time goes by. i dont remember being bitten by a tick but i live in eastern canada and we have many ticks in the area so it is possible. these are my symptoms...
headaches, often frontal, but sometimes on one side or on top
forgetfulness..just today i was going to call janitor to
open door for telephone company because theyre repairing my phone....as im dialing i remember phone doesnt work.
tingling in arms, and also strangely in head sometimes
neck stiffness and pain
arm weakness especially on left side, arm feels tired
low blood pressure...low for me anyway 90/60
painful lymph nodes
upper abdomen pain
just dont feel well.
im sure im forgetting stuff because when i go to doc i always end up forgetting a few things it takes so long to talk about
it. thing that makes me think maybe i dont have lyme is that cbc blood test is always normal and i read lots of lyme patients have high white blood count. also i got flu this winter and i also read if you have lyme you dont catch things ilke colds and flu...but is it possible sometime?
i have no idea whats wrong with me...if not lyme i thought maybe fibro or cfs?.....but also the neuro symptoms have me afraid for brain tumor
so actually hoping for lyme or something else over that. i had shingles at beginning of dec......maybe. i say maybe because i went to doc because of sore throat and ear but during exam she looked at back and said oh i have shingles.....she said i had some on both left and right side and i heard it only affects one side? also except for a day or two of itchiness i had no itching and no pain on back. so not sure if it was shingles?
sorry so long but ive went from being basically healthy to full of health troubles since mid nov, and getting really scared and stressed. any comments whether its saying sounds like lyme or doesnt sound like it would be helpful.
