    Possible Lyme Disease?

    Good Morning First of all, I find reading your stories on this forum fascenating but sad.

This past May it came back with a vengeance couldn't walk, so many neurological symptoms that I never dealt with before. One of them that really bothers me is the dizziness, sometimes I feel like I could faint.
