Unfortunately, I have also been experiencing an increase in muscle cramping on the left of my spine, from my neck down. My left side has been weaker over the past few years and seems to be flaring up again - including my MCP (thumb) joint, requiring bracing from time to time. I need to schedule rests during the day and use heat packs to relieve the rock-hard knots that are forming in my thigh, back and neck muscles. Today the muscle twitching returned, this time for most of the day in my left abdomen - wearing my body down with its incessant flickering.
After two improved weeks and a welcome relief from Bartonella Brain, by this afternoon the heavy 'brick' brain fog has returned, and with it the crazy feeling of being so very easily overwhelmed with thoughts, people, chatter, children, noise. An acquaintance with Lyme disease has likened the mental shut-down and overload that follows to something like the way one with autism would feel - which is why I seek quiet and peace to ease the pressure and stress... I am hoping and praying the pressure in my brain and the increase in physical pain and exhaustion are caused by herxheimer die-off from treatment or the remaining Lyme continuing its cycle through my body. These are Lyme symptoms so I am trusting that in continuing my treatment regime they will not remain for long. We have just begun to integrate our two youngest children back into home full-time and it would be very disappointing to have to give them up again.
