wow, things are going downhill.

no sleep last night either. my face twitched, eyes twitched and jerked, major headache, back of head hurt really bad. temple pain was bad with jerking.

if i could cut off my head i'd feel better.

are these all lyme neuro symptoms or is something else going on?

Eye/facial twitching is one of my most annoying symptoms. It gets better on antibiotics and was horrific on Cholestyramine.

I'm hoping Magnesium supplement will help.

Bartonella and the Fl1953 bug can do that.I have had them both.You need to treat them as they are very acitvated.

No wonder you have TMJ problems.

Yup, I do that - eyes and legs twitch. I also get this uncontrollable urge to shrug my shoulders a lot, esp. the left side. When it was really bad, the upper left quadrant of my body got both numb and tingling/felt like fire ants for a while. Not fun at all.

You bought Wobenzym.
Are you up to ten tablets, once daily on empty stomach?
