In alot of pain & miserable maybe from Lyme disease or autoimmune maybe?
I was diagnosed with lyme disease 2 to 3 years ago. I do not know how long I had it. I do not recall a tick bite that year. I do live in the country & have an outside dog so I have had tick bites before. This last year has been horrible for me. I cannot tolerate heat at all. My AC is set on 68 at the highest. I have what I call episodes when I get hot. I get very fatigued, dizzy, nauseous & the world spins. The best way I can describe it is being drunk almost to the pass out point. This can lasts for weeks. I was diagnosed with epilepsy but they have not been able to record a seizure since 2013. I'm constantly having new issues come up. I was loosing control of my bladder & I'm 37. My doctor's answer was to teach me to cath myself which I refused. I now have the worst pain of my life. I have been hurting for months but now my left abdomen hurts. Along with my left lower back. The pain is so bad I have actually blacked out. My left leg partially goes numb & my toes are cold. I do have some pain on my right side but very little. My butt check feels like someone is taking a hot knife & stabbing me. The pain will shoot down my leg. My tailbone has a throbbing pain that goes up my spine to my neck. I think get horrible headaches that will often turn into a migraine. I've had a ct scan on my brain & lower left back/flank area. I've had a mri of brain, cervical, thoracic & lower lumbar with & without contrast. A lumbar puncture because they thought I had MS. I've had multiple EEGs, a bone scan & several other tests. The only thing they have found is I'm vitamin d deficient & have spinal stenosis at c5 - c6. I cannot help to think this all has something to do with me having Lyme disease. Any thoughts?

OK, before anything else, you should  get to the bottom of the vitamin D deficiency and get it RESOLVED!
Your body will not function well  and your health will likely not improve if the levels of this vitamin (actually more like a hormone) are too low!
Your cells might be getting calcified, your muscles may not be contracting and relaxing properly, your digestive function might be suffering and on and on it goes.
Your risk for cardiovascular disease is 50% higher and also you are  at higher risk for Autoimmune diseases, infections of all sorts, metabolic dysfunction, lower DNA repair, down-regulation of hundreds of genes affecting all sorts of biological processes.
Vitamin D works synergistically with magnesium and vitamin K2 in order to get calcium metabolized and used properly in the body. Otherwise you risk getting your cells and soft tissues calcified and suffer from a "functional" calcium deficiency, even if your calcium intake might be
adequate!
For magnesium supplementation look up online transdermal magnesium oil and magnesium bicarbonate water.
Also check for vitamin deficiency, if you are obese, have high cortisol levels, have a VDR gene polymorphism , low fat intake or impaired fat metabolism.
In these cases you would need to substantially increase your vitamin D to well above lab upper ref. ranges.
