I just meant the symptoms that are frequently reported in the literature. Ie the triad of arthritis/musculoskeletal pain, carditis, and neuropathy (CIDP). I don't suppose it looks this same way in everyone but those are typically the major systems talked about in Lyme disease. I've had a lesser degree of all kinds of stuff from kidney area pain, to liver area pain, to just feeling like crap in indescribable ways, bone pain, vascular pain, to a tumor etc. They all feel pretty connected but who can say for sure if they're "just Lyme". Lyme could certainly explain them all without even factoring in coinfections. But we're just shooting in the dark here. I've also tested positive for babesia duncani and ehrlichia through Igenex. Very low titres. None of my symptoms really seem to scream that that is my issue. But who knows. Heck... maybe it's not even tickborne illness. Maybe it's this tooth that's been bothering me for 4 years that no dentist can figure out lol.
That's sort of the problem with these diseases. Their symptoms are very nonspecific and overlap a ton. But Lyme has been pretty well described to cause peripheral neuropathy, carditis, and arthritis, so that's why i refer to my major symptoms as being pretty "classic Lyme". Not because I think other bugs can't cause these symptoms or because Lyme can't cause other symptoms. Just gotta go with occams razor and take the simplest explanation.
