Lyme Disease Board Index

These are the symptoms listed that I actually have and part of what lead me here:

Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina
pelvic pain
Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back
Muscle pain or cramps
Twitching of the face or other muscles
Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain
Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains
Eyes/Vision: double, blurry, increased floaters, light sensitivity
Ears/Hearing: buzzing, ringing, ear pain, sound sensitivity
lncreased motion sickness, vertigo, poor balance
Lightheadedness, wooziness
Confusion, difficulty in thinking
Difficulty with concentration, reading
Forgetfulness, poor short term memory
Mood swings, irritability, depression
Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
(I don't have any of the "female" type symptoms but that could be b/c I don't have a menstrual cycle due to my birth control.)

I hadn't paid much attention to any of these problems before b/c I'm also diabetic and have hyperthyroidism (Hashimoto's thyroiditis). Then recently I started having seizures and so I started looking up my symptoms. I've also posted about this in the epilepsy board and the research board. Additionally I smell things that no one else does, have a "strobe light" kind of effect in my eyes and hallucinate. I've had hallucinations for years but recently they are more frequent and much more solid.

What it amounts to is this- I have so many things going on and so many possibilities of what is wrong that I'm a little nervous that I'll be misdiagnosed. With all of these symptoms I could have: hyponatremia (an ER visit after a seizure found low sodium), Addison's, CCM's, AVM's, Encephalitis, or Lyme Disease. (I know, I read too much). Before I go to the dr. I thought I would "explore" some of these options here- so I don't look like a complete moron when I actually ask to be tested for these things. I'm getting paranoid to the point of being a hypocondriac (sp?).

I truly appreciate any input- Thanks.
