I've been slowly but surely going through the medical process. I posted back in April I believe thinking that Lyme could be a strong possibility. My regular doc dismissed that as a possibility immediately seeing that it's been years since I remember getting bitten by a tick. However, since then seveal things have happened.
I am currently pregnant which is a blessing and a problem because I don't think I'm being taken as seriously about symptoms as I would be if I wasn't. Some new developements on symptoms are severe excruitiating headaches and I had an episode of seeing "stars" little white lights all around for a couple minutes. I had a CT done that showed "questionable calcification on brain" which is not normal for someone my age. I have a follow up neurologist appointment however, I passed the office visit last time (touch nose, identify object in hand and so on). I also had a terrible bout with upper respiratory infection with wheezing which required two courses of antibiotics to finally relieve symptoms. My Pulmonologist thinks I actually had bronchitis at the time with residual wheezing from it. Ever since I stopped the antibiotics I've been exhausted, sleeping up to 16 hours a day which is not normal pregnant or not. Do you think I could convince my neurologist to order a lyme test or even refer me to an infectious disease doc. What do you think my chances of Lyme showing up on a regular CDC test would be at this point? I understand being in Hawaii limits my options on docs and traveling at this point is not possible right now. Thanks again. Sorry so long.
