This keeps happening and i have asked a few times here what you all think is going on.

I have had my heart checked and my nice new doctor is checking into it.

It is just that, when it happens, I feel like I am in a horror movie and as if I am about to be murdered.

Let me start from the beginning:

For example,

tonight, everything was fine, or as fine as a pain filled and Lyme filled life can be.

Then I started to have a weird nightmare feelings and weird emotions.

I also started to feel really strange because when I think about the last two years of my life, that have been the most physically pain filled, and emotionally painful that I have ever been in, it just really is over whelming.

I also realized just how scary it feels to realize that I can't remember much from the last two years, It is a creepy nightmare feeling.

Then, all of a sudden, while I was thinking about all of this, I had a severe panic feeling. It was horrific, but different than a panic attack.

Then I remembered to check my heart, and sure enough my heart was just pounding through my chest and my pulse was racing.

So, the panic was because my heart was beating so hard.

My nice new doctor is trying to find out why that is happening. He is so nice, he certainly believes that it could be Lyme infection.

Well, what do you think? Does it happen to you?

you have mold and mold can kill. I know people
who had open heart surgery because of mold and died from mold as so called MS.

You need to leave immediately. You get permanent damage.
It is getting a lot worse.

i don't know anything of your mold situation as i have not been on the board for a while.

however this sounds like a toxic situation of some kind. metal, mold, drug reaction..

it's scary what toxins can do to our brains.
remember it's not "you". not your mind.
you need relief from the toxin and to clear it from your body.

most toxins move from gut to brain so binders in the gut (clay, charcoal, ect) work for many of them. i do not know where mold resides in the body, if it's all airborne..?
if that's what you are dealing with,
someone else should advise.

I had the same thing... Doctors and Emergency room people thought I was a whack job!

I started supporting the adrenals and this helped tremendously.

Also, I know that allergies whether food, or mold, etc increase cortisol levels, which give you the same symptoms. So the above posts could be on to something.

Have you checked into Magnesium deficiency?

I've been off abx years now & have my life back, and still have trouble maintaining my magnesium levels, DESPITE taking oral magnesium 5 times a day and spraying magnesium oil on my skin.

I HAVE to do IV or IM (intra muscular).

I've been doing the IM for 6+ yrs now, and recently there was a recall on the vials and there is NONE to be found ANYWHERE.

Just last week, when I was 4 wks overdue for a shot because I couldn't locate the mag, I experienced the same snowball anxiety and rapid pulse and flip flop feeling in my chest. I went and got an IV of magnesium at my LLMD, and my pulse of 120 went back to 80 and the crazy buzzy anxiety is gone.

I used to have these type of episodes frequently, before doing IV and IM, and often times it would just hit out of nowhere. I too had a full workup at a Cardiologist and they could find nothing wrong. And of course, they didn't know to test my red blood cell magnesium levels. But my LLMD did, and I was critically low.

LabCorp does the red blood cell (RBC) magnesium level test. Note: this is not the same as serum magnesium level. RBC tests the mag levels in your cells, which is where it needs to be.

Now this may not be your problem, but it sounds so much like me that I thought I'd put this out there for you.

It DOES get better. But if it's magnesium deficiency, no amount of antibiotics is going to fix this. It needs to be addressed on its own.

I think I have mentioned this to you before. Parasites can cause these symptoms. Have you done any antiparasitic protcocols?

Google parasite symptoms.

Symptoms like yours happened to me when I went undiagnosed because I couldn't pass the blood test. The weird frightening feelings, insomnia, heart palpitations and the dread and the anxiety are all standard with lyme. Mine got so bad that I couldn't sit still - if my husband and I went out to eat fast food, I had to keep getting up to throw something in the trash or go to the restroom. When standing up I was questing about like you see people do in movies about mental hospitals. The only relief came if I remained lying down in bed. All that changed when I finally found an LLMD who was able to clinically diagnose me and start me on Mino with other abx pulsed in starting with the 2nd month for the co-infections. I got my mind back, was able to sleep, no more heart palpatations and no more fear and anxiety. Hope you will be well soon. miles

Missing has black mold in her house - see her post " tons of black mold"

In this case it is the mold and nothing can help
except leaving immediately, it is very very dangerous.
But people are not listening.
