I got Lyme Disease in 1975 when I was 8 years old, and diagnosed in 1988. Received 2 weeks of IV Rocephen, and was doing okay until this past March when everything fell apart. I went through the antibiotics (Rocephen and Zithromax, but were extremely allergic to both). Currently, I'm in severe pain, especially in the joints, I feel dizzy and disoriented. I forget things easily (not a good trait for a teacher), but my biggest worry are my blackouts. I'll be walking along, and just fall flat. I will stay there until someone finds me. At that time, I don't know my name, where I am, or what I was doing. I've undergone numerous tests: spinal taps, MRIs, EEGs, and nothing shows anything wrong with my brain. I'm desperate for help.
