Hi Bill -

I posted to you once before...please go to a Lyme Literate M.D. Do not fool around with other M.D.s because the vast majority know nothing about lyme.

You are not crazy and I don't believe you are stressed other than the stress that your physical condition is causing you.

I spent 6 months hearing everyone tell me that I was just stressed, that I needed antidepressants and after finally getting tested by a lyme literate doctor and going through IgeneX labs in CA I found out that I have Lyme as well as two tick borne coinfections - Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis.

I have experienced ALL of your symtpoms and more. The digestive disturbances were really bad, I lost a lot of weight all at once and then my appetite started to come back but it is still off and on. I would have insomnia, feeling my nerve endings just twitching, but I would only have two or three bad nights then sleep would be fine for weeks. It was all cyclical. I had the urinary tract disturbances too...in fact this was occurring before and during all of it. I would have this kind of feeling like urine was leaking out of my bladder into my urethra...very odd feeling. The shortness of breath comes and goes and pain in my ribs.

Tick borne illness really plays games with your head and your emotions. Everyone thought I was nuts when I kept saying that my veins were popping out of my arms and legs. I would go do an easy yoga class and the veins in my arms looked like Arnold Schwartzneger's. I found out later it is the Babesiosis which can cause this - Babesiosis is a protozoan - it is a parasitic malaria like protozoa. It cannot be cured with antibiotics - an antimalarial medication must be used. So you can see if I didn't go to someone that new a lot about this stuff I may never have gotten the babesia under control and would have continued to be sick.

I did not have a rash and I do not remember being bitten. You do remember getting bitten.

Please find a specialist to go to and soon. Time is of the essence. The sensitivity to medications is another big tip off. I have a strong suspicion that you are dealing with lyme and Babesiosis...the shortness of breath, and chest pain, and veins popping out all sound like Babesiosis.
