I am a 32 year-old female. I have Lyme Disease, Bipolar, and degerative Disk Disease. I am so scared there is more going on and the Dr's won't know till it is too late. I had to have hysterectomy after several sugery because Dr's didn't believe I was in pain for 7 years by that time it was too late. I know Lyme has many symptoms but lately I have notice tightness in chest, chest pressure when laying on my right side. This is the side that has all the muscle and bone pains. I am so depressed because I live so far in country and my Dr also has Lyme Disease and can't seem to handle all my symptoms. I called and he is on vacation and I can't get in till Mon. I have been to the hospital before because my muscles where acting upso bad i looked deformed. They gave me pain med and sent me home. I am on 3 antibiotics also for Lyme. I have been researching because my symptoms and came across Addison Disease. I am also waiting on results from Thyroid Test there is something wrong there to. Oh and if it helps i didnt go through puberty till i was 18. I just want to be able to work or get out of the house and I feel like I am dying and noone cares. Do my symptoms sound like something else is wrong besides the Lyme. ANy suggestions would be appreciated.
Here are a few of the symptoms I am having
Blood Pressure laying down is 80
Standing blood pressure-138
I get really faint when standing
My lower back hurts
I am tan all year long always have though
Sores in ears wont heal for months then come back-in both ears
Wounds don't heal fast then turn dark and purplish
My gums are Dark Purple
After standing it feel like my heart is beating out of my chest
My right side is shaking enough to notice
Shortness of breath cant seem to catch a full breath
Can't gain weight 118lbs Height 5'9
Severe bone and joint pain
Cant sleep at night and when i do sleep i wake up every 20 min

No I just discovered Addison on internet. My Dr is treating me for Lyme and has my test results for my thyroid. I also crave sugar and salt like i will put a lot of sugar on cream of wheat which is all i can eat lately
I just got back from picking up my prescriptions for my pain meds and told my rheumatologist what was going on and showed her my gums. She said wow they are really purple and that it has nothing to do with Lyme. She doesnt take my insurance anymore so I am working to find another Dr but she works with me. She wants me to have ANA with titer-ESR and checked fibromyalgia on blood work page. What will this test say. Will it tell if I have Addisons or some other adrenal problem
I'm so sorry about what you're going thru...sending you a private message, as my reply is going to be too long. If you typing in your search engine about Interpretation of Lab results, you will probably get an idea what your tests mean.
There are many medical conditions their symptoms overlap each other...Hang in there, and I'll chat more on PM.
