Avatar m tn My symptoms matched completely. The symptoms for lyme are really similar to M.S. and while each case of lyme are similar they all present differently. I am in Canada and my test came back inconclusive for lyme then I was tested again and it came back negative but you can still have lyme even if the test isn't showing you do. Here in Canada the testing system isn't as accurate or as advanced as in the States apparently.

1517572 tn?1290796418 It seems that there are very few doctors familiar with my multiple conditions. I have had blood work for lupus, RA, Chrons, Lyme, Diabetes, and HIV - all negative. I have had a lot of blood work done and all my functions (kidney, liver etc) are good. I was on the lower scale with vitamin D. At one point when I first started getting sick my White Blood Cell count was high and so was my mono/abs??
Avatar f tn I would find an LLMD and see if you can get properly tested for Lyme disease. I'm in the same boat, unfortunately. Daily migraines, dizziness, random twitching, hand tremors, brain fog, confusion, and so many other brain and nerve problems to count. I would start there. MS and Lyme have same symptoms but Lyme is hard to detect on an MRI if the Dr isn't looking at the specific things an LLMD would. Also, I've cut out gluten and sugar and it's helped a lot.
Avatar f tn MS post: Please accept my sincerest apologies for posting this here. I'm urging everyone to read this, and share it with whoever you know that may be affected by it (or, even if they're not, these words need to be heard and understood). So please, read on: I won't go into much detail about my own past, as this affects everybody. However, to cut a long story short my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis might actually be Lyme Disease.
Avatar f tn I do not think so, Multiple Sclerosis has to show eventually and if she is experiencing those symptoms she most likely does not have it. Multple Sclerosis, like the name says, has to show at least twice on the MRIs as little birght dots or something... and if her Lumbar Puncture came normal then she doesnt have it, Im pretty sure but Im not a doctor. Have you tried LYME Disease? was this even a suggestion by the doctors?
209591 tn?1267414714 He sent me to a Neurologist that turned out to have NO medical sense at all. His (PCP) main concern then was Multiple Sclerosis or Lupus. Well to make a long story short, a year later I am still no closer to a diagnosis. Three weeks ago my PCP repeated the exam done 11 months prior. This time just with one object. During this exam we both found out in certain areas now I am unable to feel anything. He has now done testing for Lyme Disease.

Avatar m tn I was initially diagnosed with Lyme in 1997 at age 18 and treated with 10 days of doxycycline @ 200 mg. By my early 30s, I had multiple sclerosis-like symptoms that then progressed to include severe arthritic symptoms, with consistently normal MRIs, EKG, EEG, EMG, CBCs, autoimmune, HIV and other tests.
Avatar m tn Has your wife been tested for lyme disease???lot of info. on internet. enter lyme disease in topic space.also,lyme forum at this website. at least rule it out..
Avatar n tn Hi, A complete examination and investigations are essential to reach a probable diagnosis and nothing much can be said about your disease before these are carried out. It may be Lyme disease, Multiple sclerosis or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Please go for a full body scan, MRI of spine, arms and hand and consult a neurologist for complete examination. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
280418 tn?1306325910 Hope75 Hi, The symptoms of numbness and loss of sensation getting aggravated by heat suggest of Multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive demyelinating disease of the nerves. Do you have other symptoms like muscle weakness, dizziness, numbness and tingling all over the body? Please go for an MRI of the brain and spine and consult a neurologist to rule out the disease. A series of MRI and lumbar puncture may be advised to rule out the disease. Hope this helps you.

Avatar f tn These neurological symptoms could be due to a chronic demyelinating condition called multiple sclerosis where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions.

Avatar m tn Definitely go see that neurologist. And possibly a pulmonologist as well. You need to get checked out for Multiple Sclerosis. If they can't figure out what's wrong with you, it's a long shot, but you could also get checked out for Lyme Disease. While your collection of symptoms isn't typical of Lyme, every patient is different and all of your symptoms could possibly be caused by Lyme.
