“You don’t know, what you don’t know, until you know what you don’t know, you know?”
Hard to believe it has been only 5 months ago that I learned about the #1 epidemic in our World, Lyme Disease!!!!
Yes, I have heard about it before, but was ignorant (like many Medical Doctors) on what it actually is!
One reason why it goes undiagnosed, other than the CDC hiding the truth from the public and the poor standard testing for the disease….Elise and Western Bloc Tests, (you need the IGeneX test done for accurate testing!), are the many symptoms you can get with Lyme Disease…..it mimics over 350 diseases!!!
Here is a little check list for you:
Persistent swollen glands, Sore throat, Fevers, Sore soles….especially in the AM, Joint pain and/or swelling; Fingers-toes, Ankles-wrists, Knees-elbows, Hips-shoulders, Unexplained back pain, Stiffness of the joints or back, Muscle pain or cramps, Obvious muscle weakness, Twitching of the face or other muscles, Confusion; difficulty thinking, Difficulty with concentration; reading, problem absorbing information, Word search; name block, Forgetfulness; poor short term memory, poor attention, Disorientation; getting lost, going to wrong places, Speech errors; wrong word or misspeaking, Mood swings; irritability, depression, Anxiety; panic attacks, Psychosis; hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, bipolar, Tremor, Seizures, Headache, Light sensitivity, Sound sensitivity, Vision; doubly, blurry, floater, Ear pain, Hearing; buzzing, ringing, decreased hearing, Increased motion sickness; vertigo, spinning, Off balance; “tippy” feeling, Lightheadedness; wooziness, unavoidable need to sit or lie, Tingling; numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains, skin hypersensitivity, Facial paralysis-Bell’s Palsy, Neck creaks and cracks; stiffness, neck pain, Fatigue; tired, poor stamina, Insomnia; fractionated sleep, early awakening, Excessive night time sleep, Napping during the day, Unexplained weight gain, Unexplained weight loss, Unexplained hair loss, Pain in genital area, Unexplained menstrual irregularity, Unexplained milk production; breast pain, Irritable bladder or bladder dysfunction, Erectile dysfunction, Loss of libido, Queasy stomach or nausea, Heartburn; stomach pain, Constipation, Diarrhea, Low abdominal pain; cramps, Heart murmur or valve prolapse, Heart palpitations; pulse skips, “Heart block” on EKG, Chest wall pain or ribs sore, Head congestion, Breathlessness; “air hunger”, unexplained chronic cough, Night sweats, Exaggerated symptoms or worse hangover from alcohol, Symptom flares every four weeks.
You “may have” (only because not everyone gets this or notices this): New tick bite, New spotted rash over large area, New “EM” rash (discrete circle), New linear, red streaks.
Yes, you can catch Lyme Disease from a Tick! But, did you know, that you also can get Lyme Disease from: mosquito’s, lice, fleas, spiders, rodents….anything that bites, sex and passed from mother to child?
So, when you think that “NO, I can’t have Lyme Disease!”, you may want to think again!
Knowledge is Power!!!!
