Could this be Lyme
Nov 1, 2011
I have been sick since the end of May this year, don't remember getting any tick bites.

It started off with yeast infection, UTI, bacteria vaginosis, then 5 days later started to develop flu like feeling with not much symptom but general unwellness, weakness, minor coughs, night sweats, day time chills. Shortly after that when people are talking to me, I was having trouble with the right side of my brain as if it went to sleep, not able to respond. Drowsy feeling at times, it's like the brain is in a very strange state. soon after right arm started to have swollen/pain feeling. Oval shaped light colored patch (about 5 inches long x 1 inch wide) on right upper chest developed soon after and has always been there, no itchy or pain. As time goes by ache/pain/sore/heaviness increases, widespread to hands, legs, hips, toes. Sometimes with flu like body aches and low grade fever. Quite often I have scratchy throat having to clear my throat. Recently ache/pain seems to have subsided in my legs/arms, but seems to have gone into my back, I have numbness/weakness now in my arms/legs, feels heavy and doing little things could make my arms sore, numbness is usually bad when I am sleeping. Fingers are getting more stiff. Sometimes feels I have no blood going through my arm and leg especially if I am lying down. I have very sore/drained eyes sometimes, my right and left eye feel so different (hard to explain here, tight, sore and drained feeling). This would be in both eyes at times. My brain is so drained at times and it feels it's covered with heavy fog, can't think of anything at all. Lots of strange rashes, some with cuts, bumps in my skin, ear, nose, arms, legs. Symptoms are all over the place. Recently I have bright red straight line on my arm, leg, hands, then it would leave a scar eventually.

Have done all kinds of blood tests, MRI tests, nothing came back showing abnormality. Have gone to all specialized doctors and can't find anything. Doctors think I am thinking too much, but when you are not feeling yourself, you know it. I was all healthy hardly got sick prior to this. I was told the Lyme test in Canada (where I am at) is not reliable.

Doctor gave me antibiotics to rule out Lyme, the first three days seemed to show some improvement, then later on I got weaker and weaker to the point I can't continue taking it and had to stop it. I took in total of 9 days off and on (that was 3 weeks ago). I started a different antibiotic about a week ago and didn't have much side effects and I am still on it. I don't know if I should continue taking it or stopping it, very confused right now.

Does this look like Lyme to you or it could be some other type of bacteria? I wanted to ask before ordering the test.

It's very stressful and hard to accept the no diagnosis, you know something is not right within you.

Does antibiotics affect Lyme test? I am currently on doxy as a potential infection of an unknown condition. I am looking into eventually try testing for Lyme through igenex.

thank you for reading my long post!
