Day 7 – May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
Some of the weirder symptoms we Lyme patients experience . .. if you have never had Lyme or a co-infection of Lyme, you will think these symptoms are a bit far fetched.
If you do have Lyme or a co-infection, you will think, ‘WOW! I’m not crazy! I’m not alone . . .’
I don’t know why we get these symptoms, but they are rather unusual.
1. Itchy ear canals – I had this for decades and through everyone else did too. When my Bartonella was cured, the itch ear canals stopped.
2. Watching my muscles twitch – last night, I literally watched my thigh muscles twitch. Any muscle can twitch. My left eye used to twitch uncontrollably and without warning.
3. I can be walking on a level ground, and without warning, my ankle will feel as though I just strained it. Nothing will have happened; it just starts to feel very painful. And then, sometimes it can switch to the other ankle. And as suddenly as it came on, it can go away.
4. Skin crawling – sometimes, I feel like there are bugs crawling out of my skin. And then, it goes away . . .
5. Sore soles of the feet, especially in the morning. Almost feels like you are walking on glass. And then, it will suddenly stop.
If you experience these symptoms, you might want to be tested for Lyme disease and co-infections of Lyme disease. And feel free to call me and commiserate. It DOES get better.
Co-infections of Lyme: Bartonella, Babesia, Erlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Mycoplasma, Qfever, Colorado Tick Fever or Protomyxzoa Rheumatica
