The following information could be used to eliminate other diseases and learn from them in what could be helpful to increasing the quality  of your life today.

Body temperature Disturbances
Relapsing fever: An acute infection with recurrent episodes of fever caused by spirochetes of the genus Borrelia which are borne by ticks or lice.  As an immune response develops to the predominant antigenic strain, variant strains multiply and cause an infection. ( fever, chills, headache, nausea and vomiting, and muscle and joint pain and sometimes meningeal inflammation (meningitis), pneumonia, inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis) and liver (hepatitis), and bleeding (hemorrhage).  Note! this is not the Borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes of Lyme, but could it be a co- infection along with Lyme???? 
The hypothalamusproduces hormones that control: Body temperature, Hunger, Moods, Release of hormones from many glands, especially the pituitary gland,
Sex drive, Sleep, Thirst, and also helps regulate: Childbirth, Emotions, Growth, Milk production, Salt and water balance, Sleep, Weight and appetite

See Glands at bottom of Page two

Pineal gland produces melatonin hormone which controls the body rhythms and in particular the internal body clock/sleep/wake patterns. Melatonin increases the deeper stages of sleep. It has antioxidant effects which help in preventing disease qualities and controls over stimulation of the sympathetic nerves to lower the blood pressure and slow the heart rate. In a balanced pineal gland there is almost no melatonin in the blood in the daytime and at the end of the day, melatonin increases in the blood allowing sleepiness. Melatonin remains in the blood all night while the person sleeps and lessens as morning approaches. When light enters the eyes, the melatonin of the blood goes away.
Symptoms of an unbalanced pineal gland is a too early or too late sleep pattern, Night Eating Syndrome, depression, anxiety, enlarged prostate, prostatitis and lack of adequate sleep which in turn causes: Memory lapses,  accidents and injuries, behavior problems, mood problems, daytime irritability, lack of concentration, poor performance,  poor reaction times, being exhausted the whole day,  speaking  incoherently, body aches, feeling older, taking long time for body to heal itself.

Cognitive Disturbances
Dementia describes a group of symptoms that are caused by changes in brain function. A condition characterized by a progressive decline of mental abilities accompanied by changes in personality and behavior. Symptoms may include asking the same questions repeatedly; becoming lost in familiar places; being unable to follow directions; getting disoriented about time, people, and places, more forgetful of recent events, more likely to repeat themselves in conversation less concerned with activities or other people, less able to grasp new ideas, less able to adapt to change, more anxious about having to make decisions, more irritable or upset if they can't manage a task, more inclined to lose things or get lost, changed in behavior, changed in personality (can be confused with other conditions such as depression, stress or a reaction to bereavement. )
What  causes dementia: 
Lyme disease and some co-infections.
Reactions to medications, Metabolic problems and endocrine abnormalities (Thyroid problems) Hypoglycemia. Too little or too much sodium or calcium can also trigger mental changes. Impaired ability to absorb vitamin B12, (pernicious anemia).
Nutritional deficiencies: Deficiencies of thiamine (vitamin B1), vitamin B6, B12 . 
Dehydration (not drinking enough water) Infections. Meningitis and encephalitis, which are infections of the brain or the membrane that covers it, can cause confusion, sudden severe dementia, withdrawal from social interaction, impaired judgment, or memory loss. 
Untreated syphilis and  Lyme also can damage the nervous system and cause dementia. disease can cause memory or thinking difficulties. 
Poisoning. Brain tumors. Diminished supply of oxygen to an organ's tissues.
Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia's are irreversible. Dementia with lewy bodies common type of progressive dementia.(  progressive cognitive decline, combined with three additional defining features:  (1) pronounced “fluctuations” in alertness and attention, such as frequent drowsiness, lethargy, lengthy periods of time spent staring into space, or disorganized speech; (2) recurrent visual hallucinations,  and (3) parkinsonian motor symptoms, such as rigidity and the loss of spontaneous movement. Pick’s disease  a progressive decline in a person' s mental powers over a number of years. Damage to brain cells In later stages the person becomes totally dependent on others  very similar to late stage Alzheimer's. Frontal lobe dementia any dementia caused by damage to this part of the brain. Frontal lobe dementia the person's mood may become fixed and difficult to change making them appear selfish and unfeeling. The affected person usually knows where they are, what day it is and does not have the sudden lapses of memory which are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease. Some people become withdrawn, while others lose their normal inhibitions and start talking to strangers. Others become aggressive. In many cases a person's normal sense of judgment seems to desert them. Because they lose their inhibitions and judgment some people exhibit sexual behavior in public. 
Asthe disease progresses language is affected. The person may become obsessional, repeating patterns of movement and behaviors like hand washing, or repeating whatever is said to them.
Dementia
There is often an oral fixation, which can lead to people overeating and to putting objects other than food into the mouth. 
Dementia relating to other illnesses: Parkinson's disease, Huntington’s disease, Down’s syndrome, HIV related dementia Transmissible Dementia's
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease, Kuru. Treatable conditions, Chronic sub-dural haematoma, Cerebral tumour
Normal pressure hydrocephalus, Vitamin deficiency, Endocrine disorders (thyroid gland), Infections, Anoxic disorders, depression, high fever, dehydration, poor nutrition, bad reactions to medicines, or a minor head injury. 

Schizophrenic-like states
A blank, vacant facial expression, Overly acute senses, Staring, while in deep thought,Sleep disturbances, Involuntary movements of the tongue or mouth,  Parkinsonian type symptoms, Clumsy, awkward gait,  difficulty focusing on slow moving objects,Unusual gestures or postures.  Flat emotions, yet hypersensitive to criticism, insults, or hurt feelings. Rapidly changing mood for no apparent. Sudden irritability, anger, hostility, suspiciousness, resentment, hopeless about the future, Low motivation, Depression, Suicidal, Severe Anxiety,
Dropping out of activities and life in general, Inability to form or keep relationships, 
withdrawal, lost in thoughts Neglect in self-care, Replaying or rehearsing conversations out loud
low stress threshhold, poo problem solving, Deterioration in job-related performance, Inappropriate responses, Catatonia, excessive preoccupation with religion or spirituality, substance abuse, frequently moves, or walks that lead nowhere,Ruminating thoughts, Racing thoughts, Making up new words,  Becoming incoherent or stringing unrelated words together,  Frequent loose association of thoughts or speech- when one thought does not logically relate to the next. Directionless, Lack of insight,  unaware that they are becoming mentallyy sick,  saying very little in conversatins, Suddenly halting speech in the middle of a sentence, Trouble interpreting social cues,  Difficulty expressing thoughts verbally, Poor concentration/ memory. Forgetfulness, Nonsensical logic, Difficulty understanding simple things, mixed up, Obsessive compulsive tendencies, Conversations that seem deep, but are not logical or coherent paranoid delusions (thinking someone or something outside yourself is affecting you negatively.) ot you are someone you are not.
Auditory and visual Hallucinations

Alzheimer's symptoms
-Progressive cognitive decline: Memory and concentration problems, communication issues surface. Changes in personality and a few idiosyncratic behaviors appear, apathy and lack of engagement, confusion, forgets names and words,  repeats in the same conversation, forgets their own history, recent personal events, and current events, less able to plan, organize, or think logically, increasing difficulty with routine tasks, inability to make decisions, poor judgment, decline in problem solving skills, money and math problems, disoriented in time and place, becoming lost in familiar places, trouble concentrating and learning new things, avoids change, withdrawal from social and mental challenges, misplacing valuable possessions, hides things or puts things away in strange places and then forgets where they are, communication problems are observed, may converse “normally” until a memory lapse occurs, Begins to have difficulty expressing themselves, may no longer be able to speak well, but can respond to what you tell them--to your emotional reactions, and to humor, Increasing difficulty comprehending reading material, personality changes are evident…Apathetic, withdrawn, avoids people, anxious, irritable, agitated Insensitive to others’ feelings, easily angered when frustrated, tired, rushed, or surprised, idiosyncratic behaviors start to develop…... Hoards, checks, or searches for objects of little value, forgets to eat, or eats constantly, or eats only one kind of food.

Attention Deficit Disorder
Symptoms: Inattention: Often - fails to give close attention to details, makes careless mistakes, has difficulty sustaining attention, does not seem to listen when spoken to directly, does not follow through on tasks, has difficulty organizing tasks, reluctant to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort, forgetful in daily activities. Hyperactivity: Often- fidgets, can't sit still,  restless, "on the go", act's as if "driven by a motor;"  talks excessively. Impulsivity: Often -  blurts out answers before questions have been completed, difficulty awaiting turn, often interrupts or intrudes on others,  butts into conversations. 

Dyslexia-
Difficulty reading single words that are not surrounded by other words, confuse small words such as "at" and "to," or "does" and "goes." Reading and spelling errors, "d" for "b" letter reversal, word reversals such as "tip" for "pit."  "m" and "w" and "u" and "n" inversions. 
Transpositions such as "felt" and "left." Substitutions such as "house" and "home", Hiding reading problems, Spelling and writing problems, yet very competent in oral language, learn by memory, have good "people" skills. Have difficulty with planning and organization. Have difficulty with time.)very competent in oral language, learn by memory, have good "people" skills.

Brain Injury:
Results in excessive sleepiness, inattention, difficulty concentrating, impaired memory, faulty judgment, depression, irritability, emotional outbursts, disturbed sleep, diminished libido, difficulty switching between two tasks, slowed thinking, and personality change.
Infection may injure the brain, as in encephalitis, meningitis, abscess or chronic brain Lyme disease. Toxins can cross the blood brain barrier and damage or kill brain cells. A brain injury produces physiologic, cognitive, emotional, psychological and behavioral changes. Cognitive problems are specific skill deficits that may occur following a brain injury. Some of the most common cognitive problems are Arousal or over-stimulation, Attention and filtering,  Information coding and retrieval (memory). Learning, both using old information and acquiring new information.  Problem Solving.  Higher-level thinking skills known as executive skills.
 Individuals may develop difficulty with self-regulation or self-control, impulse control, over arousal, frustration tolerance and problems in perception. They may overreact to situations, get angry without provocation, or behave in socially inappropriate ways.
Following a brain injury, some people lose appropriate boundaries when they experience sadness, happiness, and sexual feelings. 
An injury to the brain stem is likely to create problems in mobility (gait), motor control and central functions. This could result in difficulty standing, walking, getting in and out of a bed or chair, lifting, throwing, catching, feeding oneself, writing, and performing other normal daily activities. 
Common cognitive problems seen in mild brain injury:
Attention and filtering. Short-term memory  Information processing  Problem solving  Organization  Judgment and decision-making  Higher-level thinking skills known as executive skills. And most common physical complaints are  Dizziness. Nausea and motion sickness.  Fatigue. Ringing in the ears. Recurrent headaches  Hypersensitivity to light, noise, touch, smell or taste. Sensitivity to crowds and busy environments. Others around the person with a mild brain injury may report a “personality change”. Other common symptoms are:  Depression.  Changes in sleeping habits.  Increased or decreased sex drive.  Heightened fears. Changes in temperament. Individuals may experience problems in judgment or do things that were unlike their pre-injury behavior. 

The symptoms of mild brain injury or post concussion syndrome are often not understood by professionals who are treating the person, especially if they are not aware of the existence of a brain injury. Short term memory loss. Slowed cognitive processing. Unusual behavioral changes. Denial. Mental fatigue. Confusion Frustration. Guilt. Depression

Here is a very brief mapping of the brain. Anyone with Neuroborelliosis will clearly see that this is where the little buggers have either been hanging out or have somehow disrupted this mechanism. But there is hope... with treatment it improves normal function.
The Brain
Frontal Lobe:Forehead: (reaches full maturity around age 25!)  It controls attention, behavior, abstract thinking, problem solving, creative thought, emotion, intellect, initiative, judgment, coordinated movements, muscle movements, smell, physical reactions, and personality, involved in motor function, spontaneity, memory, language, initiation, impulse control, social and sexual behavior, motivation, and speech production
Impairment of frontal lobe functioning is also found in a range of psychiatric conditions including schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder and antisocial personality disorder.

Parietal Lobe: near the back and top of the head: Inability to attend to more than one object at a time. Inability to name an object (Anomia). Inability to locate the words for writing (Agraphia). Problems with reading (Alexia). Difficulty with drawing objects. Difficulty in distinguishing left from right. Difficulty with doing mathematics (Dyscalculia). Lack of awareness of certain body parts and/or surrounding space (Apraxia) that leads to difficulties in self-care. Inability to focus visual attention. Difficulties with eye and hand coordination.

Occipital Lobes: most posterior, at the back of the head: Defects in vision (Visual Field Cuts). Difficulty with locating objects in environment. Difficulty with identifying colors (Color Agnosia). Production of hallucinations. Visual illusions - inaccurately seeing objects. Word blindness - inability to recognize words.
Difficulty in recognizing drawn objects. Inability to recognize the movement of object (Movement Agnosia). Difficulties with reading and writing.

Temporal Lobes: side of head above ears:  Difficulty in recognizing faces (Prosopagnosia). Difficulty in understanding spoken words (Wernicke's Aphasia). Disturbance with selective attention to what we see and hear. Difficulty with identification of, and verbalization about objects. Short term memory loss. Interference with long term memory. Increased and decreased interest in sexual behavior. Inability to catagorize objects (Categorization). Right lobe damage can cause persistent talking. Increased aggressive behavior.

Brain Stem: deep within the brain: Decreased vital capacity in breathing, important for speech. Swallowing food and water (Dysphagia). Difficulty with organization/perception of the environment. Problems with balance and movement. Dizziness and nausea (Vertigo). Sleeping difficulties (Insomnia, sleep apnea).

Cerebellum: base of the skull: Loss of ability to coordinate fine movements. Loss of ability to walk. Inability to reach out and grab objects. Tremors. 
Dizziness (Vertigo). Slurred Speech (Scanning Speech). Inability to make rapid movements.

Other symptoms of  Head Trauma:

Vision disturbances:  A few only: blurred vision, photo sensitivity, change in field of vision,  inability to accurately change focus from far to near or from near to far, lost of place while reading, skipping lines, or re-reading lines due to abnormal movements of the eye, a sense that the print on a book is "shimmering" or "floating" on the page. 
Hearing loss:full or partial hearing..
Alteration in the sense of smell and taste: One or both nostrils
Endocrine /glandular dysfunction: The pituitary gland is particularly at risk.  Cranial diabetes insipidus. (The passing of excessive amount of urine due to the under production of Anti Diuretic Hormone  produced by the hypothylamus and is stored and released by the pituary. Manifests as very frequent need to pass urine possibly every hour day and night, Very thirsty. Dehydration.

Digestive System Disturbances

Colitis (ulcerative) Diarrhea, rectal bleeding, bloody diarrhea and mucus, rectal pain, cramping, abdomen sore when touched, loss of appetite, weight loss and the ongoing (chronic) symptoms  lead to more problems throughout the body.  Constipation is much less common than diarrhea.
Crohn's disease are abdominal pain, often in the lower right area, and diarrhea. Rectal bleeding, weight loss, and fever may also occur. Bleeding may be serious and persistent, leading to anemia
Eating disorders.
Binge eating: Consuming large quantities of easily ingested high-calorie foods, usually in secrecy. Usually followed by self-induced vomiting and accompanied by feelings of guilt or depression.
Anorexia nervosa: Intense fear of weight gain and a distorted body image. Refusal to eat to stay at  normal weight for their age and height. Inadequate eating or excessive exercising results in severe weight loss.
Bulimia Nervosa: Episodes of significant overeating, t accompanied by a sense of loss of control. Binge-purge behavior .. forced  vomiting or laxative abuse.
Obesity: Eating more calories than the person can use up.
 

(GERD)Gastroesophageal reflux disease.
The esophageal sphincter  relaxes at the wrong time or doesn't properly close and refluxes pushing the food back up before digestion. It can refux up to 2 to 12 hours and tends to be worse after meals. Causes wet burps or wet hiccups, regurgitation or vomiting, especially after meals. At night, choking or wheezing, if the contents of the reflux get into the windpipe and lungs. In Kids:  Vomiting and fussiness after feeding. Adults: heartburn, stomach, and chest discomfort
Rumination Disorder:
The esophagus fills with food and is unable to enter the stomach. When entry is blocked the food comes back into the mouth and when it is a small amount it is rechewed and reswallowed. No stomach hydrochloric acid is present in this regurgitated food. When it is a great amount that is expelled it will come up with great force and spew out of the mouth. Sometimes the food remains in the esophagus for over twelve hours. The person feels hungry and starving because the food is not entering the stomach.
Contrary to the Medical profession s findings...this is NOT caused by mental retardation, mentally ill people needing psychiatric help, by people wanting to amuse themselves with rechewing, by a mental disorder or that it is all in their heads! Medical Doctors do not have an answer because they have tried to control it with medication and no medication works on it as it is not chemical but it is a physical disorder or an ensyme deficientcy.
Enzyme deficientcy: With every meal add a good mixure of Enzymes. If that is the cause of the problem it will stop the reflux immediately
The mechanics of the esophagus is disrupted when the stomach is pushed up into the chest. As soon as it is pulled back down by a manipulation with the hand then the food proceeds its natural course. Once the stomach has been pushed up and remains that way for a long time it will take repeated hand manipulation to keep it down and reform its memory of where it belongs for balanced health.
What can push the stomach up is stress tightening of muscles when anxious or rushing, sitting hard, falling, bending with a full stomach... what can trigger the reflux is swallowing unchewed foods, rough or sharp foods, fats, etc... 
.A chiropractor, kinisteology practitioner or yourself can push the stomach down. Colicky babies respond well to chiropractic treatment to bring the stomach down.
Note: I found no sensible reports on this subject from the medical field.

Intestinal Microbial Flora imbalance: May become off balance by antibiotics, sugar, fatty meat, and chemicals. Symptoms of floral imbalance, as well as many other conditions: Bloating or foul-smelling gas, Chronic bad breath (halitosis), fatigue, irritability, Joint aches , anorexia and/or bulimia, worsening symptoms of inflammatory conditions, like asthma,  Rosacea, acne, headaches and migraines, cramps, diarrhea/constipation,partially-digested stools, yeast infections, thrush, cold sores, diaper rash, Urinary tract infections, stuffy nose, increased symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, or menopause. See Candida

Hepatitis (Spirochaeta hepatitis) causes loss of appetite,  weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The liver may also become enlarged as a result of the inflammation

Immune dysfunction syndrome  (CFIDS)Yeast syndrome, yeast related syndroms:Chronic Fatigue, immune dysfunction Syndrome, candida Albicans syndrome — candidiasis — monilia (yeast infection) — myalgic encephalitis(ME) — Epstein-barr syndrome — food Allergy — Environmental illness — sick Building syndrome — ecological Illness — chemical sensitivity — Allergic tension fatigue syndrome — hyperactivity syndrome —Attention deficit disorder — Dyslexia — asthma — Hypoglycemia — post flu syndrome —  mercury toxicity  — heavy Metal toxicity.  Symptoms of CFIDS are commonly misdiagnosed as neurotic or psychosomatic. There are no specific laboratory tests to confirm a diagnosis. Research each. Keep a record of where you were at when the symptoms started. Go elsewhere for six hours to see if the symptom disappears. Increase your immune system. ( If possible, consult with a holistic naturopathic who will pinpoint minerals, vitamins, and what each organ needs to rebalance itself. They will suggest areas to improve lifestyle that will support a healthier immune system. This saves you time and frustration during the period of time when you are feeling sick. Later you will have more energy do do your own research.) If just one thing can be lessened the quality of your life will be increased.
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction:A "false" obstruction of the intestines that causes symptoms resembling a bowel obstruction. When upon examination by a doctor no obstruction is found. Caused by nerve or muscle problems that prevent the intestines from contracting normally to move food, fluid, and air through the intestines. (A nerve disturbance to intestinal muscles) Symptoms may include muscle cramps, abdominal pain, nausea, stomach pain, vomiting, bloating, and decreased bowel movements perceived as constipation. (Occasionally loose stools) Over time, the condition may cause bacterial infections, malnutrition, weight loss.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Bloating, abdominal pain, and discomfort. (Some people have hard, difficult-to-pass, or infrequent bowel movements. straining and cramping when trying to have a bowel movement but cannot eliminate any stool, or  eliminate only a small amount). (Some people have diarrhea, which is frequent, loose, and  watery stools. They frequently feel an urgent and uncontrollable need to have a bowel movement.) (Some alternate between constipation and diarrhea.) ( Some find that their symptoms subside for a few months and then return, while for others it is a constant worsening of symptoms.)

Proctalgic Fugaxmost often occurs in the middle of the night and lasts approximately about a half hour.  The pain is sometimes described as an "anal charlie horse," an anal cramp, an anal spasm, or repeated spasms of the anus.  Like all ordinary muscle cramps, it is a severe, deep rooted pain. It is often misinterpreted as a need to defecate. It is a disorder of skeletal muscle.

Malaiseis a generalized feeling of discomfort, illness, or lack of well-being. It can be associated with a disease. Malaise can be accompanied by a feeling of exhaustion, fatigue  or of not having enough energy to accomplish usual activities. Malaise is a nonspecific symptom that can occur with almost any significant infectious, metabolic (endocrine), or systemic (throughout the body) disorder.The onset may be slow or rapid depending on the nature of the disease. Malaise accompanies  in many common diseases.

Our five senses are incomplete without the sixth;...a sense of humor.

A sense of humor is a necessity to live through the experience of Neuroborreliosis. It makes the journey through the disease more bearable 
and helps to keep the immune system happier.
Humor  increases the quality of our lives.

If you laugh joyfully every day,
even for just a minute, it will give
your internal organs a jogging and
distract your mind from the negative,
Your blood pressure will drop and
