So the subject says it all.
Started feeling nauseated all the time. After 2 visits to PCP a referral to Gastroentorologist. Endoscopy of GI -> Helicobacter pylori. Started 2 anx and antacid mid November.
Mid November 2017
After a week of treatment for H. pylori headaches began. Ended up in ER on November 30. CT showed nothing, CBC normal, positive for acute mononucleosis. Headaches subsided after a week or so. Maybe they were a reaction to abx I was taking?
Flu shot. After that it all went downhill. After 3 days I noticed white patches in the back of my throat and felt like I had something stuck in there when swallowing. Seen an ENT. She stuck a camera in my nose. Nothing. Recommendation to gargle with salty water.
Yeast infection. Treated twice with otc medication. But the feeling of itching does not go away up to this moment.
Every other week I had a cold with sore throat, coughing, muscle aches, headches.
I began feeling aches behind my knees and in the armpits. At some point I could barely walk!!
After another visit to PCP my blood work came back positive for Lyme. IgG 66/IgM 41/ IgM 23
I was immediately put on Doxy for 3 weeks.
Infectious disease doctor suggested that I redo Lyme testing in a week or so and a test for Chlamydia and HIV after I told him my symptoms.
Neurologist sent me for MRI of the head due to my headaches
I never noticed a bite or any rash. Moreover before it all began I was out of the country in a big city with no foresty areas.
The muscle aches behind me knees and in the armpits, and headaches and flu like symptoms still come and go even after I started taking doxy. I feel tired all the time. I saw OBGYN 3 times because of the weird feeling in my genital area. I did not have a single good day since September of 2017. I feel depressed, and saddened, I have panic attacks. I feel like my family situation is taking a toll because of all this. I can barely do things around the house. My blood pressure is now high even though I used to be on a very low side, like 100/70. And now it's 140/80.
I just cannot believe it is LYME!!!
