Lyme's? Neck/Back/Shoulder Pain, Muscle Ache, Skin Hypersensitive, Eye Sensitivity
So it all started around this time last year. I would get pretty bad tension-like headaches that would persist for weeks at a time, the worst lasting 3 months. In October 2011 it went away, and I was fine til January of this year. I woke up one day with a stiff neck/headache, and every day after that it worsened until i went to the ER feeling faint/dizzy/weak. Ever since the trip to the ER i have been experiencing a myriad of symptoms that no Doctor I see can explain.
The consistent pain in my neck/shoulders/back is always present, accompanied by shadowy vision/floaters (24x7), Slight burning/cold feelings in my feet, 24/7 muscle aches in my arms/legs/chest, skin hypersensitivity (if i touch any part of my body it will feel like i have sunburn there for a few minutes), and facial flushing.
Brain MRI, EMG, X-rays, blood work, EKG were all normal. MRI revealed I have Paranasal Sinus Inflammatory Disease, but otherwise was normal. Neuro assured me it wasn't neuropathy due to the EMG result. Tested for Lymes by a GP which was negative, and again by an IDS that was also negative.
Been taking a daily multi vitamin & b12. 27 years old, 6 ft tall 150 lbs. I also work at a computer 8-10 hours a day and have poor posture. Was very healthy up until this.
I recently saw a rheumatologist who thinks it might be Fibromyagia. I was then referred to a physical therapist, that believes it is in fact a result of poor posture and sitting in front of a computer for 10-12 hours a day.
Would body aches/headaches, eye sensitivity, and skin hypersensitivity be contributed to Lyme's? I never have Fever, Fatigue, heart problems, etc. and the issues NEVER go away- all have been chronic for 6 months with the only issue prior being headaches.
