A few years ago maybe about 4 years I would get sick every weekend for two months I would sleep and sleep and be hot and cold and achy all over. Eventually at the end of the two months I developed laryngitis. Fwd to the next year I got a new dog and he brought home ticks and we appear to live in an area that often allows puppy to bring home ticks. I found one on my ankle once and climbing my shirt and once in my hair. Now it seems like every couple of months I get really bad neck pain and shoulder pain that radiates to the shoulder blades. I also have wrist, finger, knee and foot pain on a reg basis. Often my eyes burn and my ears feel plugged and my glands are swollen. I had flu like symptoms on thurs but the next day I was a lot better and today my throat is only a little sore and I just feel tired. I don't have all the symptoms of Lyme or fibro but it has to be something right? Or can you just ha e some of the symptoms. Maybe I'm just used to feeling miserable? I dunno please let me know if anyone has felt this way.

My mother in law had symptoms like that. She got bit by a tick over a year ago. To diagnose Lyme it takes a very specialized test. Hers came back positive and she now has to take strong antibiotics for the next 8 months. Once the problem turns chronic it's hard to deal with. Good luck to you.

It could be Lyme disease or something autoimmune

I would ask your doctor to test for both

Sjogrenspain77 that's the plan but minor emerg treated me like a freak even though I was the only person there and my doctor I can't get into until April.
