Hi All,

I'm so frustrated and confused. I've been in a fog since Oct. 24th, dizzy, numerous spells of double vision, blurred vision in my right eye and now I'm breaking out with (according to my dermatologist) psoriasis on my legs, stomach and hands. I can't concentrate and have a really hard time with balance. I have a constant pressure in my head, usually at the base of my skull, although at times it's at the top of my head and feels as though someone may be sitting on it. I had an MRI - result was white spots - secondary to MS. CT scan was fine, arteries clear, no aneurysm found.
Blood work showed ANA was positive (neurologist says I have an auto-immune disorder, don't know which one yet), my platelets were high and the anticardiolipin was high. They tested for Lyme and it came back negative, although there were only 2 line items for the lyme test. I don't have it in front of me right now. I have an appointment Tuesday with a hematologist because my neurologist said he would know what tests to perform. She wants me tested for MS and lupus. I'm going to request a lymes test by Igenix.

I have a few questions if anyone can help or respond I would greatly appreciate it:

Is it possible to develop (all of sudden) psoriasis with lymes? I've never had a skin problem before, or is this more prone with lupus?

Has anyone had continuous head pressure and double vision episodes with lymes? The base of my skull stays sore, also if I bent over and stood up quickly I would have a double vision episode that lasts anywhere from 10 seconds to a couple of minutes.

I've had neck and back issues for quite some time and keep my shoulders shrugged almost all the time. I've read about this with lyme patients and realized I do this.

Sorry for the long post, but I'm so worried. My husband has been so supportive but our life has been put on hold. I never feel good, I'm not stable enough on my feet to go shopping or out to eat. Would lupus or MS cause this severe dizziness and double vision?

Any insight or response is appreciated!
