Lyme testing is NOT definitive. read learn INFORM

I read so many of these posts and want to just scream it out loud.

Watch the movie


Here is a partial list of my symptoms (late stage)

pain... everywhere. arms, legs, hands are the worst
irritability / paranoia / anxiety
memory loss (large portions of my past, each day, no recall but some memories are there...)
confusion to the point of feeling insane (i shut a cupboard and didn't understand why the water didn't shut off)
light / sound / smell sensitivity
hearing and vision blur sort of in and out
auditory, taste and smell hallucinations (i smell and taste bleach, hear music or mumbling)
deep nail divots or grooves (horizontal)
weight problems - first it was gain gain gain then i got very sick with a ton of symptoms and it was lose lose lose
tinging in hands, arms, feet, lips, nose
hand seizing and spasms
leg spasms
tripping over own feet / nothing at all - balance problems
loss of numerical comprehension on the basic level
all over mental fog, second guessing myself, allowing others to control and manipulate me bc "maybe my antidepressants weren't working", etc
emotional detachment to what matters, other people, etc...
over emotional over stupid things
severe mood issues
ocd tendencies - perhaps a coping mechanism? who knows
piano fingers (a distinct twitching)
swelling in arms and legs
heart palpitations
word recall problems
exercise intolerance - perfectly healthy, in shape - and i had lung stabs, shortness of breath
numb. my fingers were a bit but my legs were worse
stabbing leg pain, arm pain... felt like a radiating pain from the bone (feels, I still have most of these symptoms)
abdominal tenderness and swelling
purple feet / hands
tumor on jaw/ tmj
hand deformation

I know there's more but I can't possibly keep trying to list it all.
I don't have EVERY symptoms ALL the time. These are worse when on antibiotics due to HERXING (look it up)

I guess that's really all I need to say for now - because I forgot I was writing this and no longer have the mental stamina to complete it.
