Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
why do you think you have lyme disease - ?
Have you ever been bitten by a tick?
I see you have been bit by ticks ...
Have you ever had the 'bulls' eye reaction on your skin in any of the areas where you would have had a tick bite.?
when did you have these ticks on you and then how many days later did your symptoms start?
Hard to tell. There have been ticks in our fields all spring and I've probably had ticks on me two or three times a month.
Do you live in an area of the US where the ticks have lyme such as the east coast of the US?
You know - it would be a good call to just to do a Lyme blood titer, just to be sure.
Your other symptoms could just be due to a viral syndrome - a normal viral infection - nothing really major.
But, for 2 to 3 weeks of this light headedness and if constant - this does need to be further evaluated to make sure that nothing else is going on - at the age of 70 you could have decreased blood supply to the head if your carotid arteries are not supplying an adequate amount of blood.
