Anxiety and Lyme Disease

Posted , 5 users are following.

My husband and I spend a lot of time outdoors. We love to hike and go camping. Last year I noticed this small round place on my lower stomach left side. It didn't hurt or itch and I chalked it up to dry skin. About a month later it was still there and I got sick with the "flu". About two months after that I started having anxiety and then these weird symptoms starting to appear over the next several months.

Brain zaps, cold chills, heart palpitations, dizziness, brain fog, dry mouth, headache, fatigue, pain in my right knee. This is a short list of symptoms.

I had a autoimmune panel done it was all negative.

    I Had the target rashes a very long  time ago and went to the doctor and she tested me. I have been tests numerous time since mine were negative as well. They even gave me antibiotics back then as she didnt like the rashes she saw but tested negative as well

      Yeah these symptoms are really debilitating and it's so hard to believe it's just anxiety especially when most of the time I have all hear symptoms I'm not even feeling anxious.... I can be laughing and having fun and I'll just get all these symptoms

    I developed an odd rash some months ago........so eventually went to the doctor who gave me cream and antibiotics. I didn't take the antibiotics because there was no infection.

    Went back three weeks later - saw a different doctor, who told me the antibiotics should not have been prescribed, took a look at these weird spots and gave me a diagnosis of psoriasis. Oh, and a tube of a different cream.

    I am currently tapering off diazepam and I think this is just toxins leaving my body.

    Yep, sounds familiar. Sounds like me your talking about. I am all better now, and have been for years, thanks to the amazing Antidepressants we have. Please don't suffer for years like a lot of people do, because they don't want to take a pill. Trust me, you won't regret it.
