onedayillsailagain Posted June 1, 2013 Report Share Posted June 1, 2013 So I was surfing a bit, and decided to check if it was possible to get a general blood test done (figured it would be nice to know if I was deficient in anything), and came across a website that does just that. Anyway, they had some different tests available, and one of them was a Lyme test (note that those are quite unreliable though).But then I did a little search on Lyme disease, and came across this: Q: What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease? A: There are unlimited combinations of symtpoms and rarely can you find 2 people who have lyme with the same exact symptoms. Lyme can come on slowly over months or years or with a bang. Often patients report a "trigger" and suddenly or over time becoming sick. Triggers can vary from anything as simple as breathing paint or other everyday household chemicals to getting a vaccination or the most common, a cortisone injection. Lyme can lay dormant in your body for years going unnoticed. People are often misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia, CFS, MS and many other illnesses, before finding out they really have Lyme disease. Lyme can cause mild symptoms, fatigue, headache, muscle aches all which may come and go and many countless other symptoms. Or lyme disease can cause more severe symptoms, severe and painful neuropathy (nerve pain) stabbing, burning, shooting pains, to mental illness. The bacteria can effect every bodily system from the brain to your feet. note: The symptoms mentioned here are not all symptoms. I saw a list of 50 symptoms, but it's Dutch so no point posting. They include spasms, tremors, anxiety, fear, depression, double vision, tunnel vision, blurry vision, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, tinnitus, vertigo, mood shifts, "confusion: trouble holding on to the trail of thoughts", hypo/hyper/insomnia, "trouble with concentration, understanding new information, ability to understand what is read", problems with (short-term) memory, orientation problems (losing stuff, getting lost), "trouble speaking: finding words, saying incorrect words, stuttering, bad articulation/pronunciation."Above are just the ones I found relevant.So anyway, I was just wondering: perhaps aside from HPPD, the drug itself could've triggered dormant Lyme disease (who hasn't been bitten by ticks?), thus presenting such a wide array of (co-morbid) symptoms, or an exacerbation thereof.Just a theory. Any thoughts on this?Update: Apparantly DP/DR can also be a symptom of Lyme disease. Apparantly Lyme Encephalopathy is what those lingering symptoms are classified as. , any comment on this? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
