Hi, new to this board!
Anyway, around two years ago I started experiencing some symptoms that were primarily neurological + cardiological.
I would have various little symptoms that would come and go, some reappearing later and some not: little electric shock like sensations after exercise, a feeling like something was crawling up my shoulder blade, one eyelid twitching, a stabbing pain on the left side, tingling and occasionally burning in my left hand. Some of these symptoms would stay for a few weeks; or months; then I’d never have them again.
As time progressed, I also have developed palpitations, extreme panic, a sometimes fast and very forceful heart beat, and terrible insomnia. I used to sleep 8-9 hours a night and now only sometimes get 2 or 3, and when I do get say, 7, I don’t feel rested; i’m very tired. I’ve been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
When I read online it says that the primary symptoms of Lyme are ‘joint-pain’ and ‘flu-like’ symptoms. I’m not really suffering any joint pain, and my only flu-like symptom is fatigue (mainly from poor sleep). Also, I never remember getting bitten by anything.
I’ve also noticed some marks on myself that are on my legs and hips that I was told were stretch marks. Admittedly I have gained around 15 lbs in this time, though the marks appeared a couple months after the weight gain. I’ve tried to upload pictures (sorry for camera quality
Thoughts? Thank you!
