I have been clinically diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I do not know how long the tick was on me before I saw him.I walk with a cane or stager about, bouncing off walls, slurred speach, fatigue, an hour after getting up I go back to bed, I cannot remember yesterdays much at all, but do remember my life in general (Long Term), I have aches in my legs arms and neck and shoulders along with head aches. Went through a period of tremors so bad my legs would shake, arms would curl up (muscle spasms) and my head would shake like one who has "tics" in fact thats how my whole body would jerk and spasm. took 21 days of Doxycline (pills) and now have had a pic line placed in my right arm into a main artery all the way to above my heart and have 2GM of Ceptriaxone (Generic for Rocephin) Injected daily, with flushings of saline before and after injections by a home nurse. Things have improved but Doctor says I may have Insephilitus, basically lyme disease has made it into my brain, still have a long way to go and some just don't get ever recovery 100%. With out Treatment it can then infect the heart and I guess that is NOT good. You can have Lymes Disease and it can avoid showing up in all test sometimes, and then with others it shows up. I am looking for anyone else who has had Lymes Disease and would like to know what I am really possably in for, I've only been VERY sick for 6 weeks, but was bit by the tick 9 weeks ago. please help me with any knowledge of it long term.
God Bless, RaSMaN
