Does this sound like Lyme?

Posted , 2 users are following.

For the past 5 months I have been feeling really weird with vague symptoms such as fogginess, fatigue, tinnitus, and light sensitivity. My hairline has also been rapidly receding, and my hair is thinning. I was thinking that I might have sinus issues for a while, but Flonase has not been doing much for me. I didn't think it could be Lymes until I remembered that I walked through some tall brush in Atlantic City, a high alert area for ticks. Does this sound like Lymes? Also can I recover, or is it too late? I'm freaking out, and I would really appreciate input. My CBC, CMP, TSH, and hormonal levels are all normal.

    I would say those symptoms are definitely in line with Lyme. You must get to a doctor and demand a blood test for Lyme - in the nicest possible way of course. Because they will probably try to deter you.

      Good news. Got the blood test right away and it came back negative!
