Numbness from head to toe, brain fog, vision problems, tinnitus, etc..
I am male and 54 years old.
For more than 6 months (permanently): 24/7 numbness from head to toe, brain fog, vision problems and eye floaters, severe tinnitus, intermittent poor concentration, burns in the head, electric shocks, pinching, migrating pain, feeling as if you're wearing socks when you're not, feeling cold/hot feet, fasciculations (twitching), all these acute symptoms appeared at the same time, currently I have no quality of life, I still feel in survival mode and no slacking off.
My diagnoses for years : Ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter's syndrome and Herniated disc.
All the tests I have done in the last 6 month:
Scan : Negative
MRI (Head) : Negative
EMG + 2 neurologists : Negative and they did not find anything abnormal
ENT : Negative
Blood tests : Negative
Lyme disease and co-infections (ArminLabs) : Positive (Borrelia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia and Chlamydia pneumonia)
My radiologist mentioned to me that according to my symptoms it could be connected with the peripheral nervous system namely the nerves leaving the brain to other areas of the body. Any abnormal functioning of the nerves has no effect on MRI scans. She also mentioned to me that my doctor must therefore continue to investigate, potentially with the help of a neurologist.
Unfortunately they have not found anything to date except my Lyme disease test that I took outside the country and that they do not seem to recognize.
Could it be that this could be a form of neuropathy caused by Lyme disease and co-infections or my autoimmune disease?
If anyone has any ideas or advice I would really appreciate it.
Thanks for reading!
