Sorry to hear this LIP. I remember what it was like to be stuck in a non-Lyme friendly hospital. It was a long 2+ weeks.

Even if you don't mention Lyme initially they will want to know why you are on medicines and have certain symptoms. Then they just want to know more and more, like who is your doc. When you prefer not to say they can't handle it!

They question your doc and diagnosis. All while you are sick and just need some help...

I always tried to turn the conversation back around to why I was there at that moment, what I needed now, new questions, etc. Try to keep them focused on my current problems.

Hang in there LIP, we'll pray that you meet a brilliant physician who will help you manage this salt problem well. Praying also for comfort and healing and that God would bless and guide all of your doctors to best care for you.

Still here. Psych diagnosed mood disorder with thought process. The med for that zyprexa think lowered the salt. Would u get a day of reality and snap back yo this stuff? Hate mind Meds any cause it complicates the whole body and have mthfr. I was ok on rocephin , hoping bicillin can do the same. I'm in an unreal world with the dp, but on the Meds make it worse. When I get better, it might be a day but it snaps back yo hell [Frown] . Still in hosp.

I'm very sorry to hear this, LIP. Kayak is right--Dr. B in NJ, a specialist in neuropsychiatric TBD, would be the perfect person for your doctors to consult.

And he'd be a great addition to your medical team when you're out of hospital, if that's possible. I'm PMing you with his details.

No, I don't think that mood disorder + thought disorder mean schizophrenia, LIP. These are all well-documented symptoms of Lyme & co.

I'm pasting in a link for a short ILADS brochure on psychiatric Lyme disease, and for Dr. B's article, "Neuropsychiatric Assessment of Lyme Disease." They're links #3 and #5 here:

http://www.lymeinfo.net/neuropsych.html

You probably won't be up to reading these right now, until you have a period of clarity. But these will be useful for your doctors and family members.

In the meantime, I'm thinking of you and sending healing wishes. Hang in there. You will come through this.

Have you been tested for Hyperadrenergic POTS? That's when your body produces too much adrenaline when you exert yourself. Can be misdiagnosed as anxiety; many Lyme patients have POTS, and some have the Hyperadrenergic variety.

If you haven't been tested, perhaps you could be tested while in hospital? They sometimes give a drug to speed up your heart during the Tilt Table Test portion of the testing -- I've read the test can be done without, if you don't want the added stress.

Best,

The adrenal portion is tested -- I think -- by checking your epenephrine lying down, then standing. Laxmom had it done.

Hope you have a really good day,

This.

You may have low aldosterone caused by adrenal insufficiency. Fludrocortisone can be taken as a replacement and will help you retain sodium.

Adrenal insufficiency can also cause the POTS issues because your system becomes hyperandrenergic to compensate for missing hormones.

So sorry to hear this. I remember hubby's psych admits early on before we had any clue he had tickborne illnesses. The psych meds gave him more Parkinson's symptoms. It was a disaster.

I would advise your hubby to request that you be moved to the medical part of the hospital rather than the psych ward -- as long as you are in no danger of harming yourself or other patients. If you have documented medical problems such as the low sodium issue he might be able to argue that you need closer medical supervision.

Ask your hubby to speak to a patient advocate and then go up the ladder to the CEO of the hospital if necessary. It will be a fight, but might be worth the hassle.

Have they said how long they plan to keep you? Is it just for 3 days or for longer?

lyme in Putnam,

Another LymeNet friend asked me to pass this info on to you.
----------------------------------------

The most recent version of this article was published on 2011-11-26


Hyponatraemia caused by LGI1-associated limbic encephalitis

Abstract

Limbic encephalitis (LE), once thought to be a rare paraneoplastic phenomenon, is increasingly diagnosed in patients without malignancy. Autoimmune LE has emerged as a distinct clinical entity. Autoantibodies to neuronal cell surface proteins have been described and may now be tested for. This has led to an exponential increase in the number of cases being reported.

The most recently implicated autoantibody is to the leucine-rich anti-glioma 1 protein (LGI1). This protein is involved in synaptic transmission and inherited loss-of-function mutations cause autosomal dominant lateral temporal epilepsy. LGI1 is also expressed in specific tubules in the kidney. Anti-leucine-rich anti-glioma 1 protein (anti-LGI1) LE presents with sub acute onset of progressive neurological, cognitive and psychiatric disturbance.

The condition is complicated in up to 60% of cases with severe and life threatening hyponatraemia. As well as causing significant morbidity, the co-existence of hyponatraemia may confuse the initial diagnosis. We present a case of anti-LGI1 which was complicated by hyponatraemia with a comprehensive review of the literature.

-----------------------------

The full journal article can be found at the link below.

http://ckj.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2011/09/29/ndtplus.sfr105.full

---------------

Please read the article and share it with your doctors. I think the test you would need would be the quantitative immunoglobulins. And if the test showed abnormalities, then the treatment is IVIG.

lyme in Putnam,

Do you know what your globulin levels are? -- this is part of normal routine bloodwork. You should check the values from several recent bloodtests and see if they are low or just barely in range. Especially if low, there is a higher probability that your immunoglobulin levels are low as well.

This.

You may have low aldosterone caused by adrenal insufficiency. Fludrocortisone can be taken as a replacement and will help you retain sodium.

Adrenal insufficiency can also cause the POTS issues because your system becomes hyperandrenergic to compensate for missing hormones.

I was going to say the same as above (or similar). You need to be evaluated for:
  • POTS
  • (Postural Orthostatic Hypotension) or Neurally Mediated Hypotension
  • Diabetes Insipidus ("water diabetes)---low aldosterone

This is usually a combo of blood tests for the aldosterone, cortisol, sodium + a Tilt-Table test for POTS & NMH.

The meds, if you have it are usually Florinef + possibly a med like atenolol to bring your heart rate down when you try to stand/sit up (sounds like H already has you on that). But without the Florinef, you will continue to have the low sodium/aldosterone.

What Bea said was also good. Plus, whatever she or someone said about getting you into the medical side of the hospital---IMPT!! You have a MEDICAL illness, for Pete's sake! (Not to say that you don't need psych meds, rx'd by someone like Dr. B, who is LL).

You definitely need your husband and a patient advocate to help advocate for you here!

Get the right help, and I hope you get answers and get home soon.

PS You might have Addison's, but you might have a lesser version of this and need Cortef (hydrocortisone at physiological doses). However, a hospital won't recognize the latter; only a holistic doc or LLMD will recognize and treat that.

I told my Dr my symptoms and was RX'd desmopressin for diabetes insipidus with no testing.

Why on Earth do they have you in the psych portion of the hospital? You don't need coping skills groups and a psych med change, you need your salt levels fixed. UGH!!!

The blood test for hyperadrenergic POTS is the lying/standing norepinephrine.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. I hope they can find the cause of your sodium issues and give you some relief.

OMG, I hope that they don't still have you in the psych ward for Pete's sake!!! That is completely outrageous!! It's a very slippery slope once they put you there.

You would think that we were still in the dark ages. Well, we are!

Yes, we're concerned about you. I don't know if you have any internet access in the blasted hospital. Seems like, no.

I'm dorry, I'm still here, out of the hospital. Psych talking to psychologist, new hormone doc. The zyprexa is helping me think clearly, but they think it lowered my salt. I've od on salt, green olives, my ankles look like a blimp. I'm on lasix and florinef and fluid restriction. My psych wants meto try fanapt, said to have less side effects. I don't want to switch, my mind is in a better place but my health isn't. The doc in the hosp, when I said had Lyme for years,she turned from me saying there's no documentation. I want to hit her in the head with Dr. H. 'S book. Plenty of documentation there. Any psych med will lower my salt. When Bart frequency was strong on ondamed, the the frequencies were run and my salt dropped much, my gut says it's from Bart/ Lyme. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. We all need our life back.

Thanks for checking in-I've been worried about you.

I am glad your brain feels clearer.

But I am angry that doc at the hosp said there wasn't any documentation regarding you having lyme.

I hope they can find something that helps you to feel better physically.

Personally I believe you that it is Bart.
