Like swarming?

I'm asking this because of two things that happened to me this year.

Exactly a year ago, in March. I was just starting to get very, very sick. sweating sheets, nonstop orange diarrhea that I am pretty sure was from the orange colored "to tolerance" Vitamin C I took. I was trembling so badly and sweating, my eyes were blurring and I couldn't see to type or sit in a chair without feeling like I was being electrocuted.

So one day -- one of those days -- I got the strangest feeling that I could feel my femoral nerves - the ones that start at the sacrum and wind down to the inside of the arch of your foot -- i could feel them starting to wiggle on their own. Up til then I was having no trouble with walking and balance but suddenly I had to press my toes into the floor in order to stand up straight. But this sensation was like both of those long nerves were snakes kind of slithering around in my legs. For months after that my left ankle would clonus if I tried to stand on one foot. Then it got kind of better; much better, and now my knees have a fizzy feeling a couple of times a day.

Then another time, about six months later, still sweating sheets, I had this sensation of something like tiny little bugs or something swarming in circles at the back of my neck, like they were attacking the meninges. I felt terribly dizzy -- a panic attack without the panic. I also started a big bloom of floaters right around then that still aren't totally gone now. One day of Bactrim stopped it completely.

That's why I ask. Was I feeling spirochetes? I know they're extremely small and I should not have felt anything but I sure did feel something.

Anybody?

I always thought the feeling of vibrations in my body was the spirochetes drilling in.

I don't think they can be felt. Just my opinion. Can you feel your red blood cells?

I don't think I can feel my red blood cells. I get a kind of squishy feeling in my legs sometimes but I think that's just neuropathy.
