Thank you--Robert [img]/community/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
I had exactly these same symptoms. For me, it was due to Lyme/bartonella/babesia from one or more tick bites. My neuro tests always came back negative. It wasn't until I was put on a heavy course of antibiotics that these symptoms went away.
I also had extra head-zapping when I tried using Xanax for my insomnia. The infections caused extreme anxiety and insomnia, which is why I was prescribed Xanax in the first place. The Xanax exaggerated the head-zapping even further.
My Lyme, etc. infection has not followed the typical pattern that gets reports (flu-like symptoms, joint pain, etc.). For me, the infection started out as and has primarily been neurological.
If your evaluation doesn't turn up anything, I would strongly suggest seeing an LLMD (Lyme-literate MD). Lyme tests and other tests for tick borne infections are notoriously inaccurate. You need to see an LLMD to get an accurate diagnoses.
