Has anyone else noticed that if you are about to flare that your entire body will ache in severe pain? In addition, there will be what I call,"Restless Body", it's like restless leg but all over. No pain meds help and there is no comfortable way to sit or lay. You lay awake in agony for hours, trying not to wake anyone else. Sometimes you take a hot shower or bath which seems
To help you relax right up til you crawl back in bed. Within mins it all starts over again. You beg for exhaustion or daylight so you can end this nightmare. Before long exhaustion sets in and you pass out, but only for a few hours because the day is getting started and you are trying to lead a "normal"life..
I tested neg too 4x with the standard ELISA test. Its a faulty test. and I've had Lyme for so long that my immune system is shot so I had to take antibiotics for 6 weeks to kill off some of the bacteria so the test could pick it up testing for antibodies against certain part of the bacteria the Elijah test is so poor salespeople three fourths of the timeand a headline for so
Yes, I absolutely know what you mean. Before I go into a flare-up, I tend to be very restless and that I don't know what to do with myself. Sometimes I get a weird feeling almost of energy (like I have to run around the block) and I go for short walk or something but it's not enough to make you feel better. Then within a few hours to a day, BAM.... Flare-Up!! It's so depressing. I'm sorry that you go through that just like many of us here do. I hope you have a peaceful and less painful day. You'll be in my prayers.
