Hello people. My name is Aaron. I'm 17. I do a lot of sports, for example I play football for team and so on, but after this went for months, I quit it and quit my part-time job. I don't smoke, use any kind of drugs and rarely drink. I eat healthy and never really had any health issues.

For past 4 months, I've been experiencing a like I'm unstable, massive tiredness, concentration problems, and some kind memory loss. Like I feel I would be on drugs, feel really spaced out and I'm having like brain fog, like constant unsteadiness and like light-head. Also I have a pretty high blood pressure for teenager - 140/80 around that.

So, before all this started, I didn't have any health problems or something related to it. I felt perfectly fine before I woke up to this thing. 

In morning at the end of November, I woke up. I felt a bit fuzzy headed, like light headed, thought it will be gone in couple of hours or so on. After hours, nothing, still feel the same. Went days and weeks through and felt the same - light-headed and unbalanced. Went to doctors, he couldn't find any problems, had blood tests - perfectly fine. At this point it wasn't worrying and had a hope it will be gone soon.

After 1 month, I started experiencing big tiredness, and feeling like I'm spaced out and it was hard to communicate, I felt better when I sat at home in bed, rather then go out with friends like I used to do. So yes, I slept like 9-10 hours, but still in morning I felt really sleepy and tired and all day, and it still goes now. 

After another month, I started experiencing a concentration problems and like a bit of memory loss, I started forget about small things. After that I had MRI scan for my head and they found nothing, I also went to hospital because I felt like I will pass out and they said I just need to rest. 

After another month all these symptoms felt like it became worse. So as NHS took long time to find the problem, I went to another country to checkup. Had like MRI scan for my back and neck, had a neurologist appointment, and some kind therapy, where they put like cables on head and then check it. Everything was fine, only in that therapy they said, that my brains work really strange when light shines on my eyes and that my brains are very irritable and so on. They didn't say anything what it could be or so on. Also a another doctor was looking in my ears and testing me and said I had vertigo or something in my left ear or so on, did the therapy but felt the same, did therapy again after week and nothing changed.

So I returned back home. After one day I didn't sleep well in night and in morning felt really weird like a bit worse, but nothing to do about it. Had also a another appointment with GP, he gave me a blood pressure tablets and been using them for couple of days, but blood pressure is the same and don't change.

So yes, overall I feel less confident about everything, it's harder to anything, concentrate and think about anything. As I go college, for me it's harder to concentrate on work. I feel like I'm spaced out, somewhere in sky, I'm daydreaming also a lot.

Anyone knows what's wrong with me and how to cure this terrible thing?

    Check out www.lymedisease.org.  Lyme is a bacterial infection from a tick bite.  There are also several other infections that can be transmitted via a tick bite.  Sometimes more than one infection at the same time.  Do some reading up on it and see what you think.
