Hello all, great whinner here.

I'm having one of those days that I had in the past before dx of Lyme.

My symptoms are screwy. I start feeling a warm tingling sensation in my lower legs then it moves up my body to my head and then I feel like all my muscles are getting tight and a feeling of being shakey inside.

This is what put me in the hosp last year only to end up seeing a psycologist and being told I was having an anxeity attack. I don't feel mental. Ok, well, maybe slightly now.

I also am having muscle spasms everywhere in my upper torso, back, sholders, neck and chest.

And I've got what seems like kidney pain or pressure in my lower back on the rt. I can't even go up the stairs without my legs burning like I just ran a 10k.

I feel goofy running to the doctor but if this isn't a herx I wonder what it is.

arggggh!!! sorry all, just a really bad day that just seems to be getting worse.

Edited here:

I was finally diagnosed with Lyme and Enrichlosis(sp) about 2mo ago. Have been infected for atleast 35yrs.

On Rifampin 150mg 2X daily, the usual supliments, probiotics and detox herbs.

Also forgot to add that I've had a fever (low grade) for just over a week now too.

First of all Proudmom(proud mary song of 60's)!

I love the rabbit doing the macare'na!

Now, exactly what disease do you have and are being treated for at this time and at the time you previously had these feelings?

Why not give your LLMD a call. He/She will be able to tell you whether you need a doctor or not. [Smile]

Hope you feel better soon.

This isn't going to be any help but I was just about

to post a very similar message. Every afternoon

lately I've been really weak and shaky with tremors

and bad heart palps. I'm in between meds right now

so it can't be a herx.

I called my Dr.'s nurse and she has no idea so

referred me to urgent care.

Like I said, I'm no help but rest assured you're

not alone in those symptoms! Let me know if

you find any answers... hang in there..

Do you have a LLMD whom you could call ?

Most doctors wouldn't know where to begin with lyme patients, so I understand your reluctance to see someone who is unfamiliar with the complexity of lyme.


I can't say about kidney pain, but what you describe is really just par for the course with lyme, even when on treatment. It would be great, though, to have a LLMD evaluate your symptoms, though.

Sounds like me a few years ago. Same stuff, except I would have tetany seizures alot. Bicillin did it for me. I have not had any episodes for a long time until I started rifampin about 4 weeks ago. Had a her the other day that dropped me in my tracks. Backing off meds now , but looks like I have a high germ load of bart. On to Cipro next

fyi

BOARD WAS FIXED SAT. 11 PM BY TOM BROWN, TECH! he found the problem ... so things should be back to normal.


now we can delete duplicate - 6 identical posts from each forum board.


to ALL reading this; read my post which was at top of medical, and keep it up so we may get all the extra garbage deletion posts OFF the board so we know who needs help.


big thanks! xox
