Hi. I was infected with Lyme's disease about six years ago. After many misdiagnoses, I was treated and got rid of it about three and half years ago. It has taken until now to get back to more or less normal functioning. The only thing I still struggle with is driving. My ability to drive disappeared immediately when I got sick and since then I have only been able to drive very short distances (2km - 5km) or not at all. My symptoms are a funny zoned-out feeling like I'm looking through a dirty window, my concentration feels impaired like after you've had a drink or two, I get very tired after about 10mins and, if I push it and continue, my arms and legs feel like they might start shaking and I feel like I'm going to pass out. Busy roads, speed, many intersections, highways and sharp early-morhing light all aggravate my symptoms. I have also had problems being in certains shops and listening continuously to music. It's like these things -- or too much stimuli -- are triggers. Does anyone have the same symptoms, know what's is causing them or tried any treatments (normal or alternative) have have helped? Please let me know. I'm desperate to start driving again and get back my independence. Tanya
