Still not getting any answers - please help!

I have been sick since the end of May 2011, have been all healthy prior to this. Still not have a diagnosis to date and getting worse over time.

Below are my history of symptoms, I am wondering if it's worthwhile to travel down to the Mayo clinic in Minnesota for a second opinion? Do you have any experience with the clinic for undiagnosed conditions?

My symptom history:
It started off with quite bad vaginal yeast infection (never had it before), UTI, bacteria vaginosis, then 5 days later started to develop flu like feeling with not much symptom but general unwellness, weakness, minor coughs, night sweats, day time chills.

Then I started to have some scary brain and eye symptoms. My right side brain is like in a shut off state, when people were talking to me, I can hear them but not able to respond, I felt a difference between my left side brain to my right side brain. This continued to today. I am really having lots of trouble doing my job (computer work) as my right brain seems not connected to the left brain, it's like the left side has the full power, but right side only power of 5.

Other symptoms and progressing over time:
Muscle aches - initially only in my limbs, now widespread to everywhere throughout my body including back, neck, fingers,etc...
Muscle weakness/soreness/discomfort - pain most noticable when using them and getting worse over time.
Eyes - Right eye periodically has bloodshot at the same spot, feels different from left. Both will get strained/sore/tight easily.
Terrible drowsy/spaced out feeling - used to be really bad months ago, seems to have gotten little better.
Oval shaped patch on the chest - been there since the start, never went away. Skin biopsy revealed post inflammatory hyperpigmentation with rare pitorosoprum like yeast on the surface scale.
Chills/low grade fever/funny throat (always having to clear it) off and on.
Numbness when sleeping - not neuro numbness
Brain fog - used to be really bad at the onset, seems to have gotten a little better.
Rashes - all kinds including cuts like, bumps with pain, red lines.

Have done all kinds of blood tests, MRI brain, CT scan of body nothing came back showing abnormality. Visited numerous doctors.

I was on antibiotics for some time and it had improved some of my symptoms with my brain and eye, not the physical body at all.

Does this sound like some kind of strange infections? Could it be yeast enter into the bloodstream.

thank you for reading my long post and would appreciate any help or suggestions anybody has!

Re: Still not getting any answers - please help!

The moniker you use - lymeslave - makes me wonder if you know (or think) you have lyme disease. All your symptoms would fit the clinical diagnosis. You might try posting on the lyme board here.
