Bad short term memory, word search
-------------------- First Symptom 9/09 Multiple docs, negative Labcorp test LLMD: 1/10 Positive Igenex/CDC test Treatment 2/10 2/10-8/10 Amox, ceftin, zith, flagyl Currently: Bicillin, Minocycline, still dealing with severe breathing issues
At first, I thought I had restless leg syndrome. Twitchy, creepy/ crawly. I would have parts of my body" fall asleep", or so I thought. Like my scalp or back. It wasn't until I got the Lyme diagnosis that I realized this is not something that happens to healthy people. My memory has been fading over the years, but again, I thought everyone had this. I am only 35, so it is far from normal.
That was all the years leading up to the last year. Now I cannot speak without confusing myself. I can't multitask, which I was a master at before. I get so confused. I can't remember how to drive in the city I have lived in for close to 20 years. My muscles constantly twitch and jerk. My hands and feet burn for half an hour at a time. Sometimes it feels as though I have electricity running through my bones. I think there might be something to that as I am always burn out lamps when I turn them on.
And a general fog that does not go away. Does this help? I know there is more, but at least this is pretty close. My biggest issues now are neurological. I think they always were, I just didn't realize it for so long. I am about to start treating with bicillin, and I pray it helps. Not sure how long it will take, but I am ready.
