I've been dealing with lyme disease since this past july, so for about 8 or 9 months. It started with flu-like symtoms, then intense muscle pain in my legs, and then very bad brain fog. I was treated early on with 3 weeks of doxy which only helped marginally, then I was treated with 2 months of minocycline and tinidazole, and I've switched over to the herbal supplement LB Core as suggested by my LLMD.
My leg pain has pretty much gone away, and the brain fog seems to have improved a bit as I can focus much longer and get my work done at university, but I am left with what feels like pressure in my head, specifically at the top or crown of my head. Some days are worse than others, but it is always there, and the triggers I've found for it are caffeine and alcohol, though it comes on randomly sometimes too.
Yesterday for example, I didn't sleep well the night before and I have developed a terrible tension/pressure headache to the point where I can barely think straight, even today.
I did have an MRI where they found a pineal gland cyst, but I was told it was benign and too small to have any impact, so I'm assuming this is occuring just from the Lyme, or maybe some coinfection, though I haven't been diagnosed with any coinfections.
I was wondering if anyone knew of any other supplements I could add to get some relief from these pressure/tension headaches I get constantly, if Lyme really is the culprit for them. Any general advice on the head problems would be appreciated as well.
