I'm pretty sure I have lyme disease, im 26 and before I got ill roughly 3 years ago I was very active and fit and I used to walk miles with my dogs anyway. Since the begining of last year I have basically become disabled. It started a few years back when I lost a huge amount of weight without doing anything out of the ordinary, then I started getting nausea, light sensitivity, bladder problems, hot flushes, diarrhea. I didn't think much of it at the time because the symtoms came and went. I hadn't seen a gp in 10yrs because I didnt feel I needed to, why go if you aren't ill. Anyway in june last year I started gasping for air and getting palpatations, feeling faint, fatique etc I felt like I was in a dream and nothing was real so I went to the Dr immediately. When I got there I was in a state, crying etc. Becsuse I felt do unwell and could barely walk. I thought it could be my thyroid so I mentioned that and that I felt as if I was in a dream, so the Dr did a blood test and told me if its not that then it must be psychological. I was shocked she thought that when I felt so ill. I went back for an ecg they said it was weird and I'd need another and then I got my bloods bk all normal. I felt a little better in the weeks following and then I ended up in a&e I had severe pains in my chest and was gasping for air and having shooting pains down my left arm. They said I have tachycardia and that my heart rate is going up and down and they don't know why. I was let out that night and told it was probably a bout of angina and reffered to the rapid chest pain clinic. It took 6 weeks to get an appointment, they did an ecg and told me im fine and they sent me for a echocardiogram which im still waiting for 8 weeks on. I think I figured out I have lyme in the past couple of weeks especially with the memory loss and muscle spasms aswell now. So I got an appointment with my gp to ask for lyme test I just hope this doctor doesn't think im crazy.
