I am wondering if anyone has or had a feeling like paralysis. I had both arms go completely numb on me twice (I could feel in them but could barely lift them), and also felt completely numb from the navel to the knees for about two weeks. At the time I was being treated by my GP, and he told me it was a combination of anxiety attacks and sciatica.

My neurologist gave me some kind of a nerve damage test on Tues. and I don't have any, apart from a very mild case of carpal tunnel which I had before all of this anyway. So I am assuming that these problems are from Lyme? They are not side effects from medication as I wasn't on any medication when it happened.

I had an EMG/NCV test last year (just for lower body- my hands were tested several years ago) and supposedly my nerves are fine. (I went in then, because my big toe on my right foot is partially numb). I've already been told I have PN, though. And I have had a few instances where my arm (and entire side of body) went completely numb. I went to the ER because my neuro thought it might be a stroke.. One of the times it happened, it messed up my "cycle". I basically stopped just as I was starting, and it showed up a month later. This happened before abx treatment, but while I was transitioning from Topamax to Elavil. It happened again a month later when I was off both. I think the worst was when I woke up in Nov of 2000 and my left arm (the one I have most problems with) was in such pain, that I couldn't move it. It was practically useless for weeks.

I would assume in my case, it's probably Lyme, too. Unless there is something else going on that has yet to be discovered...:(
