Hi. I need help developing a plan of action. I haven't been diagnosed with Lyme---although I had a suspicious tick bite about 3 months ago. I'm trying to figure out the source of my constantly ringing, full-feeling ears. An ENT doc has just diagnoised me with Meniere's. The ringing/roaring started a month after my tick bites (received late July 2011 while in NC...where my Dad and 2 sibs both contracted Lyme). One of the bites was super red for several days and the other two looked like mosquito bites. I did have some generalized aches and pains with headache for a couple of days, but thought, conincidentally, I was probably getting a sinus infection from some ear plugs I'd been wearing. About a month after the bites, I was achey again. NO fever. My doc ordered an ELISA test, which came back negative. I've been feeling okay for the past 1 1/2 months, but my ears are driving me crazy. I'm still wondering if I could have Lyme.

Anyone out there had tinnitus as their main symptom? Anyone had Lyme, but were diagnoised with Meniere's? I had a hearing test that did show some mild hearing loss in the lower frequencies---consistent with Meniere's---or at least, with increased pressure/fluid in the inner ear. Is that type of hearing loss associated with Lyme? What tests to do next?

Thanks for any insight!
I have that right now. I am on ABX and the ringing is getting worst.
I found out I had Lyme in May 2011. I had head and neck pressure as my main symptom. The ringing developed later.

I strongly believe you have Lyme. The tests are not reliable, get a LLMD.
Charlotte, I started out with only head and neck pressure. This lead to throat tighness and shortness of breath & heart palpitations when it was at it's worst. This all started for me back in May 2011.

I remember reading the many symptoms of Lyme and saying to myself THANK GOD, i don't have this or that symptom. However, even on antibiotics I have developed at least 70% of the listed lyme symptoms. I will send you a private giving you some more detail.

See a LLMD & know that you may need long term treatment & you have to fight for it. Even when you think it is over, most likely it is still inside you waiting for the right time to rear it's ugly head.
