its been awhile since I have been here on LN

got bit in Austin TX 1986 - saw picture perfect bullseye on leg-
got sick a month later -

was VERY sick for 18 years before DX with Lyme and Babs-

Started treatment with LLMD- GS in Austin

Got much better but it took 6 years of pills -eating right etc --

Now the symptoms I have left are-

Sweating like a pig anytime I do Anything-

Still have night sweats - seems to be getting worse again-
and cant sleep very long-

low body temp - 93f a lot of time -almost never 98f

Overall I feel Pretty good tho -

I exercise in swimming pool for 2 hours a day several times a week-
I sweat like pig in pool too - no one can see because I am in water-

Im thinking hypothalamus /thyroid problem -

went to a meeting that LLMD said hypothalamus OR thyroid gets
messed up with Lyme/Babs -(dont remember for sure was 10 yrs ago)

tried to get appointment with thyroid Ductor several times
but they say I need a Referral ---

Any Ideas what could be still causing this-- Sweats?? --

Did you have to get Referral to see thyroid Ductor -

any suggestions on meds that could help - Jay-

Thyroid is definitely part of it. Won't your GP refer you?

I'm telling you, Doctors know very little about the thyroid and I'm including endocrinologists in that statement.

Most will use only the synthetic meds and they don't work.

Hope you get some clues on the sweats.

Do you eat a lot of potatoes or other foods high in oxalates?

NO... when your body detoxes oxalates, you can end up in heavy sweats.

Spinach?

I was so hoping you were going to say eat a bag of potatoes-

I do eat spinach but not a lot lately-

Yep could be a Babs relapse but I dont really think I have ever completely gotten rid of it -
not sure if that is even possible for someone that was sick as long as I was -

But I do have a feeling it could be Thyroid/hypothalamus
problem from what my LLMD said at a big meeting-

LLMD has moved now so I dont really have good contact with her any more --Jay--

It could be babs, thyroid, hypothalamus. Babs can give heavy sweats, poor sleep and more.

Definitely could be Babs.

Time to find a GP. They are usually better than endocrinologists for thyroid testing and treatment (in my opinion). When you get tested, ask for Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3, T4) and thyroid antibody tests. Often these are not run, and they are the most important tests.

I also recommend getting adrenal and hormone function tested. I think saliva testing is best. Lyme can affect all hormone levels.

I have always found this chart helpful: "Adrenal Fatigue vs. Low Thyroid Function" at http://drrind.com/therapies/metabolic-symptoms-matrix

I agree, Sammi. My GP treats my low thyroid with Nature Throid. I doubt any local endos would do the same.
