I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. Prior to Nov2013 i was a super fit marathon runnner and triathlete. Now walking more than a few miles is a challenge. I am 34. I want to hear from people who have had lyme disease (or other tick infections) and how they felt when they had it. How long did you have it and especially did your symptoms worsen over time ?
Did you have an odd sensation ALL THE TIME, especially more prevelant when sleeping that your heart was very weak and not beating the same when you were healthy? I have this as well as the fatigue. Constantly tell people i am 'zombified' they laugh, i have arguments of sorts with family members, they say it might be in my head, doctors have suggested anti-depressants. I constantly just don't feel right. I did 2 weeks of doxicycline 200mg/day with no major improvements as an experiement. But maybe i was'nt on it long enough. I figured i was in the Bulgarian outdoors in the mountains july 2013 and the highlands in August, these were the two things i did differently from any other year and where you can get a tick bite.
I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
Thanks for reading.
