2 years, Getting Worse, Need Help.

respiratory issues, nausea, numbness, pain, muscle spasms, memory problems, confusion, anxiety, anemia, hypoglycemia, heart racing... All started up just out of the blue. Been getting worse. Seems like my mind is in a fog? Could this be a Neurolical infection or what? I cant afford healthcare and am terrified of doctors because usually when they pull my blood I pass out. But this is going on far too long.

Sounds like a lot of anxiety. Have you tried daily exercise ? Eating healthy, meditation.... yoga... maybe even buying a hypnosis CD that helps with anxiety and depression and listen to that as you meditate each day?

Really sounds like Lyme disease.  I highly suggest you seek a LLMD.

Watch this trailer or buy the documentary. It's called Under Our Skin. http://www.underourskin.com/watch.html

Get the correct information regarding Lyme disease it is now epidemic and it only have been around since 1981. A lot of doctors don't know about it and more and more people get sick each year.

http://www.canlyme.com/ - their list of symptoms is very good, good website.
http://www.aldf.com/index.shtml

http://igenex.com/Website/ - this is the best lab to get tested for Lyme but remember that Lyme is a clinical diagnosis first that can be backed up with positive lab results but you also get false negative results.
