Doug I can't help but understand that your post about dehydration and B/P / Lyme go hand in hand. It sounds as if your Lyme may not have completely cured itself. I too have been diagnosed with Lyme and have had it for about 8 years. More recently I have had a problem with water imbalance, electrolyte imbalance. I put on water and it comes off just as fast as it goes on. Stress is the precurser to my "spells" as well. I have near fainted- while giving blood, on the table having needles poked in my thyroid, post smoking, or anytime my body see's itself in a crisis. They have produced severe body temperature drops from fever temps down to hypothermic states in a matter of minutes. My blood sugar drops, as well as BP in the same amount of time. ***@****
Hey Doug, it is important to still get checked (scope)even after a nissan fundoplication ....I had surgery in 2000 and just now was told I have barretts. Make sure you get checked because you can have barretts with no symptoms, thanks Lisa
