really shaky, spacey and feel like your floating in a cloud? Its horrible. I feel like my heart is racing but it isn't. Is that weird or what? Is it just from neuro lyme?

A dear friend of mine with Lyme has fallen twice and broken bones due to exactly thay kind of feeling.

Please be careful!

Fortunately I have not.

Its like brain fog. Thats the only way I can describe it. I also have a horrible cold right now and thats not helping. Sometimes I just want to give up. Last week I actualy prayed to God to just end it here and now so I wouldn't have to suffer anymore. I cant take it.

Nancy,

Those sound like babesia symptoms. Have you been tested?

Yes I have-negative. that doesn't mean they wont treat for it anyway. However, I can't take antibiotics so I am hoping the colidal silver will help.

Brain fog is common with lyme disease.

I'm not a doctor but your symptoms sound like blood sugar issues to me.

Lyme seems to bring that on for some of us. One can develop reactive hypoglycemia, hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Cutting down on carbs can be very helpful and can alleviate these symptoms in people who have this problem.

It can be very hard to catch reactive hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia via lab tests, especially the A1C (an average of blood sugars over a period of months).

Eat something when you feel that way and see if that makes a difference. Uttimately, cutting down on carbs and eating foods with a low glycemic index is needed if you have reactive hypoglycemia.

Hope you get it figured out.

Terry

Its funny you mention that because my dr feels the same way. I have a glucose monitor at home. Sometimes it comes up low and others it will be high!

He tells me to match a carb with a good protein (like toast with an egg). Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't. Its weird.

I get very shaky with brain fog at times while on Babesia treatment. I never had the shaky feeling until I started treatment.

My glucose levels are always normal every month on my labs but I am very shaky while on treatment, especially during a herx. I hate it so much.

The brain fog and a feeling of my head just feeling weird happens as well too. Diflucan helps me the most with the brain fog feeling as well as cutting out sugars and carbs.

Low blood sugars can be very hard to catch and also hard to manage.

When I had reactive hypoglycemia I found it very helpful to use a low carb diet.

I also think inflammation plays a role in our ability to utilize glucose properly thus it may help you to work on inflammation issues.

Blue-
Inflammation always seems to get worse for me during a herx and this may be why the shakes get worse during a herx. Herxing = inflammation = inefficient glucose control.

I was very shaky while taking Malarone. It is a side effect from the med.

The brain fog is definetly a symptom of the illness. Could be Lyme or Babesia.

I get that feeling occasionally as well. I've wondered about blood sugar issues, although they've always tested fine.

You're right, though, it is a horrible feeling!

Well my LMD says the sugar levels can definately play a part. I am to monitor my levels 1 hour before eating and then 1 hour after eating (switch of every other day) at the same times and see what happens. He may order a longer glucose test too-we'll have to see.

Ill definately watch my diet. More proteins and less carbs. I am a carbaholic so I know thats contributing to the problem in some way I am sure.
