Could this be Lyme?

Symptoms started in December and have gotten progressively worse:

Fatigue, lethargy, night sweats, flank pain, nocturia, yellow urine, sometimes smelly urine, restless feet (in day), weight loss, abdominal pain, tremors, pitting nails, muscle atrophy, muscle twitching, muscle cramps, crispy hair, low libido, no appeptite, nausea, dry skin, mental changes, and visual disturbances.... doctors can't find anything wrong. I keep going back for kidneys, but my BUN is 10-11 and my CCR is normal too... Lyme or some kidney infection? All my symptoms sound like uremia! Don't know where to turn, I know this isn't all from anxiety like the doctors think.

Labs:

Renal Ultrasounds - normal size/shape

Metabolic Panel - Normal, sometimes slightly elevated blood sugar

CBC - normal, low MCV

VIT. D - low

Abdominal CT - normal

Xrays - normal

Urinalysis - sometimes normal, sometimes micro RBC, sometimes mucus

Please help

    do check your b12 & folate levels.  low b12 can cause most of the symptoms mentioned.   do u have kidney pain or cystitis with the nocturia?

      I do have kidney pains. No cystitis. Everything checks out with the kidney function test but I find it odd to have low vit. D and urinary symptoms.

      is there a possibility that  you maybe  having 'adrenal' pain rather than kidney pain - similar location. it's easy to have your adrenals checked by a saliva sample.  doc could also have you're cortisol etc. checked.

        i'd  strongly advice to have your b12 & folate levels checked as b12 can cause SOOOOOOOOOOO  many  debilitating  symptoms  similar to ME/CFS, Lyme etc.. do have look at the website 'HealthUnlocked' in the Pernicous Anaemia Society (PAS) section & cross check your symptoms. b12 deficiency  is a very prevalent condition that's rarely checked for by medics with devastating consequences.
