Could I have this?
Sep 12, 2007
Ok, without trying to sound like a hypocondriac ... there is "something" wrong with me and I haven't been able to figure it out for months. You know how you can just tell that you're "off" ... I've been having varying symptoms on and off for a while... I have been tested for STD's, Lupus, Diabetes, Liver function... heart problems... all kinds of stuff. I'm getting a bit tired of worrying about my health. All the tests I take seem to come back negative. Only thing I've managed to find is High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol.

I read through some of the Lyme posts after I did a search on one of my symptoms. I read another post that listed out a ton of Lyme disease symptoms... I must say I have had either now or in the recent past a lot of the symptoms on the list.

My question is, can you have Lyme disease for a very long time and not even realize it? I've read a couple posts where people didn't seem to know but is it common to think that I got bit by a tick I have no recolection of and that 1. the tick is gone and 2. it gave me lyme disease?

Here are my symptoms from the other post:

Unexplained fevers, sweats, chills, or flushing
Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina
Sore throat
pelvic pain
breast pain
Sexual dysfunction or loss of libido
Change in bowel function-constipation, diarrhea
Chest pain or rib soreness
Shortness of breath, cough
Heart palpitations, pulse skips, heart block
Joint pain or swelling
Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back
Muscle pain or cramps
Twitching of the face or other muscles (my eyes twitch)
Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain
Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains
Ears/Hearing: buzzing, ringing, ear pain, sound sensitivity
Lightheadedness, wooziness
Confusion, difficulty in thinking
Difficulty with concentration, reading
Forgetfulness, poor short term memory
Disorientation: getting lost, going to wrong places
Mood swings, irritability, depression
Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
