I am 74 years old. Sept. 1999, I was bitten by a spider over my left eyebrow. About 3 or 4 days later, my face was distorted and left eye swollen closed. Horrible headache, no equilibrium.
Sept 2002, I woke one morning and couldn't walk. I felt that I was walking on slivers of glass. I went to my personal doctor and on to a Podiatrist. I was told I have Neuropathy. I am a diabetic II, which is under control, but have taken several meds for the pain associated with Neuropathy.
Last week I went to a 'Pain Doctor' and he said I have no nerve damage to my legs and feet. He asked me if I had ever been bitten by a tick. No tick, just the spider bite. Four years later I still have pain, my life is controlled by the pain in my feet, toes and lower legs.
Is it possible that this spider bite 7 years ago, can still be in my blood and causing the last 4 years of Neuropathy?
