1. ... nightmares...
2....pain inside my brain that makes me feel like a vice in squeezing my brain.... make me so tired I sleep for about 10-12 hrs
just wanted to say I have these same symptoms...vivid and insanely grotesque dreams... squeezed pain inside my head, tender, sore top of head pain, scalp sensitivity...stimulation intolerance, light , sound, everyday activity...then needing to sleep an inordinate amount of hours... these last 2 days were very bizarre vividly absurd and weird night terrors
I had been eating very well, ketogenic for the most part, drinking plain CO2 water, lost nearly 12lbs in one week...but then even though my body felt okay, my head (ie neuro symptoms) were clearly and painfully not OK,
so I have relapsed again to poor diet and the aftermath thereof...
the combo of : strict diet + herbals ABX is what I need to do, but ...it isn't very easy is it?
Like you I have taken a long break from killing-bugs, just trying to get my immune system up with proper diet and supplements, and do what I can energy-wise, but I know the bug-killing must go on at some point.
It was disheartening the neuro-borreliosis symptoms so prevalent still, anyway I can relate to what you are going through.
Keep us posted here and we will try to help : )
