Hi im a 27 year old male and im going through alot right now. Over the past 12 weeks or so i have been struggling with symptoms that seem to overlap with a number of conditions including lyme disease. My symptoms started with calf twitching which after a week spread all over my body, the twitching is mainly in my legs though. I then started getting burning pain in my forearms and hands and it was to the point i startedto feel weak. I now have burning skin symtoms, sore legs and an ache body, very much flu like, i am currently in the process of getting an emg test done to rule out motor nuerons, if this test comes back negative i truley believe that lymes disease looks like the most likely cause. The reason for my theory is in the summer june 21st i done an event in scotland called tough mudder, its an obstacle coarse through woodlands and obviously mud. The area that it was done at isnt probably known for ticks but the conditions were perfect for them and the coarse and some mud is shipped in from all over thr the place. The reason i mention this is because 24 hours after completing the coarse i was struck down for 4-5 days with what i thought was a bug. I think of myself as having a high pain tollerence but this was the worst ill feeling i have ever felt, constantly sick and diarrhea non stop. I eventually got better but my fitness levels dropped drastically. It was about 4 weeks later that the calf twitching started. And all the other symptoms snowballed. I forgot to mention that i suffer numbness and tingling mostly in my pinky and ring finger at times. One thing i should say is ive never had headaches. My sleeping is terrible i dont get any which for me is so unusual as i have always loved sleeping and usually find it easy. I have seen people with lymes describe my symptoms to a tee and experiences with doctors who dont care and i was wondering if lymes disease is a possibility for me?! If it is also what should i do about it? Many thanks to anyone who responds.
