I have been reading many posts on this site. I also experienced many of the symptoms that others on here are posting. I was misdiagnosed going back as far as 1991. Going from Dr. to Dr. with no accurate dignosis of what was actually wrong. Finally, I got help. Brain Fog, fatigue, aching joints, heart palpitations, numbness, insomnia, sensitivity to light and sound, balance (vertigo), . Too many more to mention. LYME disease is what I have. I would suggest going to this site and reading the symptom list. In my case I had 33 out of 35 that would apply to me being a woman. Lyme is known as the disease in disguise and manifests itself in many ways. Many are diagnosed with fibromyalgia, MS, Lupus, RA, depression and many other diseases where LYME is the underlying bacteria going untreated. In my case I was treated for RA even though I tested negative and did not have the symptoms of RA. I was given drugs that worsened my condition rapidly. I have researched Lyme disease for almost 3 years now. People need to be informed and aware of they symptoms and the manifestations of this disease not being treated. Also, this disease is passed intro vitro (mother to child). Children are being diagnosed with ADD when in fact Lyme may be the underlying culprit.
Please get informed on Lyme disease and talk to your dr. You do not have to remember having a tick or the typical bulls eye rash. Lyme is a clinical diagnosis based on symptoms.
