Re: What's this now?!!!!.....
I have the toe thing on and off all the time. I have read your other symptoms here and on other threads and you sound exactly like I was before I was treated at all (I was treated for babesiosis and my symptoms are less distressing now, though still present-- I start my Lyme treatment this afternoon). I am not a doctor but I think your test is going to come back positive.
I can hear your anxiety in your posts and I was like that too (also dealt with the doctors that said it was all in my head). I felt 50% better just finding an answer (for me, when I was told I had babesiosis, I was sure I also had Lyme so I had the answer in my head, if not on paper). One doctor told me that my temporary paralysis from the waist to the knees was from sleeping on the wrong pillow! When Dr. Fein heard that she told me she would have tested me for MS immediately.
Btw, I was tested and also have carpal tunnel. One of the doctors (forget who at this point) told me that if I already had carpal tunnel, the Lyme could aggravate it, which is one of the reasons why much of my pain has been centered in my arms. So you may well have carpal tunnel but that doesn't mean you don't have Lyme too!
