I have had lyme for 5 years. Frist off you will have it for the rest of your life. I have had facail palsey have my face I couldn't use, Iam always dizzy and in pain! Which will never go away! You just have to exsersie at lease 4 times a week and stay active and the dizzyness will go down and you feel alittle bit better.
: First off, Hi.
: My Name is Kerry and this is my first time here.
: Three years ago I was diagnosed with lyme disease and at the time it was obviously so because I had gotten sick while hiking the Appalachians. I had approximately 20 lesions (some as large as a large grapefruit) on my body. The doctor told me that she had never seen so many and was disappointed she didn't have her camera. She also told me that I should have been sick as a dog, however not only was I not sick but I was very active and noticed no symptoms other then the initial 2 days of fever.

: However, for the last 2 months I have been suffering from chronic dizziness. Mild to pretty strong.

: When I had such a terrible case of lyme my doctor just put me on a 30 day prescription of some antibiotic and when I was done with it she asked if my symptoms had disappeared? I said yes, but of course I had none to start with, and at this point the disease was only about 2 months old in my system. So I only took a months worth of antibiotic.

: Could my chronic dizziness be a sign of reoccurring Lyme? I am suffering from no other symptoms.
: Thank You
: Kerry
