Lyme and MRI

I got an MRI the other day and used hearing protection but afterwards my ears hurt badly and they felt full. I had back pain caused by a chiropractic adjustment and massage (Lyme related I'm sure) and that immediately disappeared after the MRI and the ear pain took its place! Do you think the Lyme jumped to my ears because they were irritated by the loud noise causing an overreaction? My body seems to overreact to everything right now. I got a cut in my throat and had pain for 5 months after it healed, I got an adjustment and massage and had pain for months now my ears are exposed to loud noise (with ear protection) and now severe pain. Have any of you had overreactions like this to injury or irritation? I'm just hoping my ears weren't permanently damaged!

I have symptoms that jump around and from what I have been told most will go away when in remission. Please ask your LLMD.

Hmm, MRI caused the opposite in me.  I had pressure in my ears, enough pressure to make dizzy like I was drunk.  After the MRI it was clear.  An MRI tube is a pretty hostile environment, some microvermin don't like being in a magnetic field, the polarity of which gets swapped.  I was out before they put my head in there and I had some pretty weird dreams!
