I should add this:
On the first job I failed at - when I was having trouble at work, my body was shivering uncontrollably and I was in quite a bit of pain.
And my brain was shutting down.
Definitely stress triggers it - BUT that could still mean active infection, right?
... or my nerves just need time to heal?
I was just lurking in this one because I don't have a solution but you mention shivers memory etc. I experienced the shivers and they would come like a train from deep in my lower spine. One occasion it brought me to my knees and I wasn't sure I could move. Typically they were not that intense but enough to make me feel sick. I had brain inflammation to the point where I could feel it all day. My memory has been absent as well.(I have other symptoms but just focused on yours). I'm about
2 months into rif/doxy/alinia and the inflammation is starting to go down. My memory comes back temporarily so I'm getting the feeling that things will slowly improve. For the chills I stay dressed in long sleeves long pants and heating pad/hot baths mitigate the discomfort. My neighbors think I'm bat crap crazy because they see me taking the trash out in full winter attire in 95* weather. That's the way it goes. I personally think it could be active infection for you but I'm not exactly a physician either. I hope you can get some relief and wish I could be more of a help.
Thanks for sharing your experience!
That’s great your memory is coming back - hope it continues !!
There has been some improvement - One symptom I used to have : in the morning as soon as I wake up - my body would shiver from the top of my spine and down my legs.
Now it’s just my legs that shiver on waking.
This stuff is enough to make us
bat- sh** crazy.
Describing it to someone who hasn’t had lyme - doesn’t do it justice.
My memory has improved some - compared to a year ago - my husband keeps reassuring me that it will continue ... i hope he’s right.
So you’ve been treating lyme and CO’s for just two months?
