Unsightly, you sound like you've had a really tough upbringing, I'm sorry that you had to deal with that. It's sad, I think our childhood really dose affect us for our whole lives. Try and hang in there.
Dose anyone know anything about the vagus nerve I just came across this information "The vagus nerve is always at play in people with gut problems, food sensitivities, fatigue, anxiety, depersonalization, and brain fog".
Thanks for the kind words.
The vagus nerve is a major player in lyme. It's part of the gut brain link, I think it's why many people suffer things like anxiety and such, as well as many other GI issues. Breathing exercises and such can tone it, and also eating foods to help with remyelination can help. It's definitely a major part of it all.
When I was healthier, 5 years ago I'd take daily cold showers. Straight into the shower, cold as can be and it would seriously help me so much. My immune system was good, my body would regulate temperature well, I had a healthy amount of fat on my body etc. That's one way to stimulate it. I'm far too weak and frail right now though.
Hopefully there's more out there on it.
I swear I have the same symptoms but it's on the left side! It attacks the corpus collosum from what I remember, which is basically the part of the brain that connects both hemispheres. It's maybe the reason we have seizures as well! People who are operated on for epilepsy, have this part of the brain, a small part removed to prevent the seizures. It also affects motor control and such which would explain the unilateral weakness, hence why lyme is misdagnosed as ALS and MS as well.
Personally, I would recommend any sufferer of lyme just steer clear of any intoxicants. Lyme is the most horrific intoxicant that there is.
