Waiting to see if you come online
So I would appreciate a better description of the lesion off your left frontal horn of the lateral ventricle. Do ou have a report?
What you are describing is generalize muscle pain or achyness, and I would ask if you have some history of arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis as a more specific question?
there are condtions like viral exanthems, the flu, or inflammatory myositis, that can give you general aches or pains. I would certainly link all of your symptoms together if they began together over the past week.
since you do not have a fever, I guess that excludes the flu
I do not have a recent report am making a mri appt asap for a follow up. I can not reminder really anything from the last report i have. I forget everything.
I have a history of arthritis linked to previous lymes diease
but I would go and see my regular doctor and get some blood work which would involve a CBC, sed rate, rheum titer, lyme titer, ana
Already ordered only waiting on results, hi
so you need a
Would face tingling be a normal thing with a headache?
absolutely, it comes from irritation of the maxillary nerve or trigeminal nerve depending on location,
as your muscles contract they actually affect the nerve firing
They are doing a panel for diabetes which i dont think has anything to do with this and checking for vitamins
yes, that is part of the routine blood work, but you should think about ANA and check your muscle enzymes ok?
or this could be your lymes again
had 2 spinals for that already both + and both treated with antibiotics, with a home nurse and all
oh, so that is sounding more likely to me.
When they found the lesion the first time they said that it could only be from the lymes if i had a stroke
But my heart test fine
So they said ms
but that they cant prove that because i only have one lesion
have they checked your csf for MS like oligoclonal bands, IgG index etc?
so they think this is all lyme
that is what i dont understand
well diffuse muscular pain is not MS
they said that if i had the medicine like i did that lymes would not come back
yes, that is the general statement
i would keep long term things but i would never get fully sick from it again
i have had 2 of those treatments now
did you have 3 weeks of IV antibiotics?
well I don't know what else to suggest, you probably still have symptoms from your lyme
or you have some sort of inflammatory auto immune or rheum problem
would they show up in blood tests?
well the epstein barr titers would they would be either chronic or acute exposure
good luck to you, hope you feel better
you are welcome
