I was wondering.. Is this a symptom of lyme disease?

I always wake up with my feet burning.. It's like a weird burning numb feeling.. I don't know how to explain it.

It mostly happens in the morning, it does happen during the day too. It can last up to twenty minutes, and then it goes away.

Bartonella (or bartonella-like organism--BLO)

See here where Burrascano mentions it:

"Indicators of BLO infection include CNS symptoms out of proportion to the other systemic symptoms of chronic Lyme. There seems to be an increased irritability to the CNS, with agitation, anxiety, insomnia, and even seizures, in addition to other unusually strong symptoms of encephalitis, such as cognitive deficits and confusion. Other key symptoms may include gastritis, lower abdominal pain (mesenteric adenitis), sore soles, especially in the AM, tender subcutaneous nodules along the extremities, and red rashes. These rashes may have the appearance of red streaks like stretch marks that do not follow skin planes, spider veins, or red papular eruptions. Lymph nodes may be enlarged and the throat can be sore." (page 24)

See where he lists: "sore soles, especially in the AM"?

I had the burning soles for hours a couple of days in a row. I thought the heat of the pavement burnt them somehow since it started in the afternoon!

I need to be treated for that.

Is it treated with antibiotics?

Bartonella... My feet always overheat at night, and though I test negative for Bart., every single Lyme-Literate doctor I've seen has said I have Bart.

If you're concerned about Diabetes, get a fasting glucose and Hemoglobin A1C test...

Vitamin B12 & Folic Acid also should be checked, as deficiencies of these may cause peripheral neuropathy.

And make sure you are eating Gluten-Free!

Yes it can definitely be diabetes. Only way to tell is get tested. My dr does test me but only because I'm high risk. Overweight. Older and parents diabetic.

I'll ask my doctor to treat me for it.

I hope she does... I tested negative for co infections, and I am not sure if she ever treated me for them.

This was one of my worst symptoms. I was always told Bartonella was the cause.

Since I have been treating for parasites I no longer have this horrible symptom.
