    Lyme? Help!

    Hey Everyone, I'm a newbie!

    A little info on me/my situation:

    -21 years old, female, usually healthy (mild hypothyroid)
    -Live in South Jersey, go to school in Philly

    My story:
    -Became sick 2 months ago (started out with headache, hot flashes, nausea, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia, body aches)
    -Before I became sick: having trouble sleeping, unexplained anxiety, blurred vision
    -Been to ER and Doctors multiple times--found nothing
    -Had lots of tests and bloodwork done- found nothing
    -Started getting tingling, numbness in hands, feet, face
    -Had a stroke-like episode where my arm went stiff/numb, face on same side was numb, felt droopy
    -Neurologist did everything he could, found nothing
    -Primary Doctor thought it was viral, but it's been two months
    -FINALLY SAW AN LLMD-- he said It's likely I could have Lyme & Co-infections
    -LLMD is testing me for Lyme & Co (igenex), tests results come back 4/16
    -Anxiety is getting worse, feel like I'm dying! Need some

    Overall symptoms:

    -shooting/lightning bolt-like pains
    -tender spots
    -sore scalp
    -pressure in head
    -almost feels like something is in my head moving around
    -jaw pain, tooth pain, facial pain in general
    -ear pain, ringing in ear, clogged ears
    -sore throats on and off

    -pain behind right eye
    -blurriness/double vision/seeing spots
    -dry or itchy eyes

    -shooting pains
    -ribs are extremely tender
    -breast soreness
    -heaviness, shortness of breath

    -stiff, sore neck
    -neck tender
    -back pain
    -tender spots along spine, especially on lower back
    -feeling possible little bumps along spine

    Stomach/Abdominal issues:
    -Constipation or Diarrhea
    -Stomach pains or cramps
    -Possible enlarged liver/spleen--tender and bulging where these are
    -feel like I cant sleep on stomach anymore at all

    Womanly issues:
    -worsened menstrual cramps
    -yeast infection
    -pelvic shooting pain

    -Shooting pains all over
    -burning skin on legs
    -tingling, numbness

    -hard time speaking--finding words, slurred speech
    -difficulty concentrating
    -unexplained anxiety
    -depression (normally a happy person)
    -overwhelming feeling like I'm dying

    -Muscle Twitching
    -Hot Flashes
    -Mouth Sores
    -Feeling like bugs are crawling all over
    -Horrible shooting pains all over body

    Tests Done: Viral panel, other bloodwork, MRIs, CT Scan of head, Spinal Tap, Chest xray, and more.

    **Was only tested for lyme in the hospital, a quick test, came back negative

    ***Again, LLMD is testing me for Lyme & Co-infections, but I need some reassurance for now. The waiting mixed with my anxiety is NOT working out!
