Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Hello everyone.

For the past few months, I've been dealing with constant lightheadedness and have been bouncing around to all kinds of specialists who can not seem to figure out what is wrong with me. Someone suggested to get tested for Lyme Disease which I have not been as far as I know. Is lightheadedness and feeling like you're going to pass out part of lyme disease symptoms that you've experienced? Thanks for any information.

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Hi MissJaimes, yes that can be one of the symptoms.

Have you been tested through Igenex Lab?
If you suspect Lyme disease you should seek out a Lyme Specialist. (LLMD).

Hope you find your answers soon!

Hi.

Thank you for responding. I have not been tested for Igenex Lab? Is that a specific test or place or something? I will look into the LLMD for sure. I just need to feel better

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Igenex Lab you can find it from where you are sitting. You can call them and request a test kit. You will need your doctor to sign off on the lab slip.

You can also from where you are sitting look for a Lyme Support group in your area. There possibly is a contact person. They should be able to tell you whom is the closet Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. Or you might try asking at the Igenex Lab.

Good luck to you!

Jodie

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Looking over some of your past post. The shortness of breath "could" be babesia which is a co-infection we get sometimes along with Lyme.

Babesia is in the Maleria family.
They call it Air hunger...

You are wise looking along the Lyme co-infections line...

It mimics many disorders.

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Thank you JoJo, you're the best!!! I will do my research on this and the babesia. I just emailed someone at the lab place. Do you have Lyme disease? I hope I have finally found what is wrong with me. This has been the longest past four months of my life and every moment when you feel bad, feels like an eternity.

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Hi, yes lyme, babesia, bartonella, and other things....long road. I had it YEARS before anyone decided this is what I had.

Testing is not accurate for many of these, so it is best to find a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor so they can go on symptoms, and not solely on a test.

I would call the lab, they have a number posted.

Talk with you soon!

Jodie

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Hey, I called the lab and had them send me a kit. Thank you for this information, I will keep you informed. This very well could be a possibility to why I've been feeling so bad. So, if you don't mind me asking, how did you know or suspect you had LD? What symptoms did you display?

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

Missjaimes, if you look towards the top of the Lyme board. There is a thread there on "The possible symptoms of Lyme Disease", I had just about all of them.

Such as vertigo, lost the use of my arms and legs for a while, vomiting, mental problems, couldn't eat, smells bothered me...on and on and on....

Each person is different in their symptoms. A lot of people are told they have a condition such as Bi-polar (for example) and then given antidepressants. Beings this person trust the doctor, they do not look further into it and live this way the rest of their life.

So it depends on each of our bodies how we react to it.

If the lab did not suggest which test to run. when you get it. Look it over, call them back and ask which ones they suggest you are tested for. Beings different strains are different from one side of the world to another.....

I would also suggest getting to a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor to help you along this journey. to either rule out Lyme and co-infections or rule them in and get on a proper treatment plan.

One thing you can start doing is taking supplements to build your immune system up.

Hope you find your answers very soon!

Jodie

Re: Has anyone with Lyme Disease experienced constant lightheadedness?

many symptoms. A lot I had become so used to I didnt think they were relevant.
I get what feels like bubbling in my ear drums. Numbness in my skull and forehead. pressure under my skull or feeling like I have an infection in my brain. Sharp shooting pains in my rib cage front or back. weak fatigue muscles. Neck pain and stiffness mostly at the base of the skull c1 c2. Strained vision/hard to focus. Memory loss/brain funtion probs. Anxiety. Feeling like losing control over my muscles. vertigo/dizziness almost passing out at times. Head ache. The list goes on. I have not however had so much of the arthritic probs. I have what is know as the neurological lymes disease.
I also get hot or cold burning sensations. Most of the classic neurological symptoms.

I have only just been officially diagnosed 2 days ago, so I havent started treatment yet. However I have been investigating into what my options would be if I was to diagnosed and I'm not sure that I will be taking the antibiotics option. If I do it will be with a combination of other things. From what I have noticed with antibiotics is that it only kills the virus in a certain stage of its life cycle and people report to sometimes feel better after a period of treatment but most often relaps after stopping. Obviously the doctors will all vote for antibiotics but doesnt at all mean that they are more affective. Other option are one of or combination of the salt and vitamin C protocol, Colloidal silver, or h2002 food grade peroxide and of course life style change and anything that helps to improve general health and immune system function.
So I will put up another post soon when I start my program for anyone who is interested. I have not heard one case of anybody fully recovering with antibiotics alone.
