Lyme Disease Questions and Discussions

Lyme Questions

This category called, “Lyme Questions” on was started so that Lyme disease patients can read the experiences of other Lyme Patients. In many of the Lyme forums and on Facebook these questions get discussed but then are lost to the news feed in seconds.

So we thought if we posted them here, then people could come back and find the discussions again and be able to read at their own pace.

Remember this is not meant to be taken as medical advise. Only your doctor, Naturopath or medical provider can do that. These are the experiences that other Lyme patients have had that they are sharing with you. Not any two people will react exactly the same to any given treatment, nor will they have the same symptoms at any given time.

But with the ever changing, persistent and strange nature of Lyme disease and the other tick borne illnesses, we know it helps to know we are not alone and that others are going through similar things that you are. People are bound to share scary stories as well as the good remission stories. So don’t hang onto any one experience, you have your own journey to get through. Just educate yourself yet remain open minded and remember each person’s journey is different.

We are here to support each other through the good and the bad. So we hope this category turns out to be a supportive and educational one.

  1. Lyme disease may be exaggerated. Please be professional when it comes to Health care. Lyme disease related to reactions from insect bites. It’s really an allergy more than an infection. On the content, is simply Interior in old English. Far from the coast, around a rich diverse eco system there are bugs natural to the environment. Ticks occur naturally in forests, they live on the forest floor, or under wood and support the natural composition of fallen leaves, branches trees ect. creating a moist environment. The problem is when they are on your skin, rather than a pile of leaves. Don’t get too excited about ticks, excessive dramatizations are not professional. But follow tick removal instructions and consult a professional if bitten. Some people are not bothered by ticks. If an when some people identify with the interior, they are used to bug bites and generally have little to no reaction. If your health care color is blue for coastal, then be sure to cover up. Recovery from a bad case might take a while but it won’t last. Reaction or no reaction, bug bit reactions are not at all not contagious or anything like that. – that’s a general reference to “green” in health care. People use colors for all sorts of reasons, health care colors are simply environmental and most people are not sick.

  2. Hi just wondering if any groups need clerical assistance in South Carolina. I’m retiring there by the end of 2018, maybe sooner. Thanks in advance.

  3. Can you still have lymes even if you repeatedly have a negative result on the test? I have almost every symptom, yet all the nests are negative.

  4. Regarding eyes and vision.

    I had Lyme in 2012, and it was diagnosed quickly.

    One of my symptoms was sensitivity to sunlight usually beginning in the late morning. It was sort of like having the eyedrops to dialate pupils.

    I would feel normal getting up in the early morning, but would be unusually fatigued by mid day. I’d take a half hour nap and be OK.

    I felt like I had a mild case of flu all the while.

    I noticed some neurological symptoms, with a mild loss of sensation in my arms and hands.

    I think the tick got me sometime around early June, my symptoms began around July 20. I got tested a few days later, since the symptoms didn’t go away on their own, a would be expected with flu.

    I was given the Doxy antibiotic for 30 days, and slowly began to improve after about two weeks into the treatment.

    Four years later, and I’m still fine. My doc had said the sequence of my symptoms wasn’t the most common he’d seen.

  5. All the time. Anywhere from my lips to under my ribs to in my feet. These ones have sharp pain and come and go fast. Often if I look down I get electric sensations running all the way down my spine. These do not hurt. Bzzt bzzt and twitches. Sometimes separate other times together.
