Hi, I became unwell whilst on holiday in Turkey in July 2013. Started with dizziness for about 20 secs on and off over a couple of days with nausea.
This progressed into awful pressure headache with numbness, fatigue and constant motion dizziness in head which has caused balance issues.
Also brain fog, difficulty thinking, remembering names and words. Also noise sensitivity, light sensitivity, tinnitus and stabbing pains in head, eyes and ears.
Approx three months later I started seeing zigzag lines and flashing lights.
I always have a constant motion in my head which has changed direction with vestibular exercises. It is constantly up and down feeling in my head which feels pulsating as if coming off my own pulse. This has caused inflamation in my mouth and bone where I have a filling left in my gum due to taking out a root canaled tooth.
I also now have inflamation around my knee joints, outside of throat neck where your thyroid is, above my eyelids, some in arm by elbow.
My pulse in neck and groin are pounding. Tingling in arms and legs. I also get stabbing pains in legs and now have constant pulsating tingling motion going into feet. Pins and needles in feet when walking.
Pressure headaches have gone and also the brain fog.
I have remembered recently whilst on holiday a couple of days before I fell ill, I had a tick in my arm. I thought nothing of this and pulled it out with my nails. I told my doctor about this and she did a lymes test done of NHS. This came back negative.
What I'd like to know is if these symptoms sound familiar with lymes disease. Also where I can go or send off to be tested privately for tick disease as I have read the NHS tests are not reliable.
My emotional wellbeing is very low and my doctor becoming very weary with me. Please can anyone help
