When you mention monthly cycles and the 12-19th of the month I have to ask if you might be experiencing hormonal flares in co-incidence with lyme woodduck. Sorry I'm not sure of your gender.
I haven't noticed that my lyme symptoms coincide in this way but I used to get a terrible hormonal crash mid menstrual cycle (around day 14-19) when one of the hormones drops dramatically post ovulation. It took me a long time to figure out because it's not PMS exactly as the last week is fine it was that post ovulation drop that would completely destroy me for 2 days or so. I managed to sort it out a bit pre-lyme so it's less of an issue for me now. I just wanted to mention as people often talk about
that last week as symptomatic but not the middle and that's not always the case.
I do know lots of people, men and women, seem to report a lunar cycle to their symptoms. I wish I was as predictable or sensitive/astute as to what's going on with my own symptoms which just seem to wax and wane unpredictably. It would be a lot easier to plan my life if it were. Sigh.
Nero-lyme stuff drives me crazy too as it's so subjective. It's the kind of stuff where I don't know if it's 'all in my head' or not. I hope you're slowly cycling your way to improvement and healing woodduck12.
