I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m headed sharply downhill.
For the last 5-7 days, I’ve had what are probably the worst days of my experience so far. I got the second blood draw for the western blot, but the results will take until (probably) mid-next week to come in.
Except for going for a car drive or ride, now NOTHING will temporarily stop or help to ignore the dizzy symptoms. I’ve become actually clumsy, whereas I wasn’t before. Anyway, I feel like I’m CONSTANTLY on a bad, jerky boat ride, sort of like I’m constantly feeling the sensation of going up-and-down, or left-and-right. Even lying down now doesn’t do much. This is a serious downward-turn, if you ask me! It’s been worse overall since last week, but the worst of it has been in the last couple of days.
(If I concentrate, sometimes I can control what direction the floating sensation seems to be moving.)
Any responses welcome, even if they’re just to remind me that the “cliff-diving treatment” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, despite what I keep thinking.
P.S. To answer Scott’s question, I’ve been told that the Diamox is wanted because, in both Lyme disease and other disorders, it’s shown to be very good in helping relieve neurological symptoms. Of course, an antibiotic would be needed to kill the Lyme itself, if that’s what this is.
