DadJake Posted November 7, 2010 Report Share Posted November 7, 2010 Ok, so I'm told I have Lyme disease causing all of my symptoms. My testing wasn't that great, but clinically I have so many symptoms that I am being treated with antibiotics. After 5 days of Antibiotics, I have to stop as I start feeling very sick (Nausea, Malaise, Terrible Anxiety, Crying Jags, body aches, disequilibrium, etc.) Some of these symptoms are baseline symptoms, but they exacerbate like crazy with the antibiotics.Before I even open my eyes each moring, my anxiety is going bad. I get out of bed and try and drink a little coffee to wake up my head. Take today for example: I woke up and my legs were going all over the place in bed. My head felt weird inside (hard to explain), but feeling like I'm not getting any blood flow or something along those lines.I took 1mg of Klonopin and 1mg of Xanax at the same time. I just started on Neurontin 300mg 2 x day. I also took a small piece of percocet to calm down my CNS. Well none of this worked. My anxiety was topped out even with all of that on boarde and I was barely sedated.So, I said screw it, let me try some Benadryl about 30 min. later. I just took 25mg of liquid Benadryl and 5 min. later, my Anxiety is pretty much gone and only then do I start feeling fatigued. The crying goes away and my mood comes back a bit, still no where that is should be, but the despair and feeling like I'm dying is gone.I'm googling all over the net on this MCAD and I see many symptoms, but I don't see anxiety as being a symptom. I did see something about Central Nervous System problems and even mood disturbances, but nothing about this crazy anxiety I get. I've been in the ER and given 3-4 mg of IV Ativan and I'm thinking they gave me placebo water injection as it does nothing and doesn't even sedate me. I should also mention that I can't catch my breath while I'm having these attacks. I start breathing like someone with COPD, as in holding my breath, but not on purpose. I guess my body is trying to compensate some how. I'm not sure if this is a symptom of Lyme and die off from toxins, or if it's MCAD combined with my Lyme. Perhaps, MCAD is just my underlying problem.I need a Dr. close to Maryland to get the diagnosis and if someone has articles on what I'm describing symptom wise related to MCAD, could you give me some links to read up on ?Thank you everyone in advance,Justin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
