Eyes and Vision Disturbances

(Eye) Myasthenia gravis
- weakness of the eye muscles, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, difficulty with breathing, muscle weakness, blurred or double vision, unstable or waddling gait, weakness in arms, hands, fingers, legs, and neck, change in facial expression, shortness of breath

Papilledema: is optic disc swelling that is caused by increased intracranial pressure.CSF  The swelling is usually bilateral and can occur over a period of hours to weeks. In its earliest stages it may not cause any symptoms, but more severe papilledema leads to blurriness in vision, visual obscurations (inability to see in a particular part of the visual field for a period of time) and actual loss of vision. See Pseudotumor cerebri
back

Orbital and Ocular Lyme Disease
Rare ocular LNB may occur at all 3 stages of the disease. Uveitis and optic neuritis are the most common ocular complications. Conjunctivitis and episcleritis are the most frequent manifestations of the early stage. Neuro-ophthalmic disorders and uveitis occur in the second stage, whereas keratitis, chronic intraocular inflammation, and orbital myositis are seen in the third stage of Lyme disease. A nonspecific follicular conjunctivitis occurs in approximately 10% of patients with Lyme disease. Direct ocular infection and a delayed hypersensitivity mechanism may be involved at different disease stages. 
Borrelial orbital myositis is most probably an immunologically mediated response subsequent to hematogenous dissemination of Borrelia species. The clinical and imaging manifestations of orbital myositis Lyme disease closely mimic those of orbital pseudotumor . The differential diagnosis includes lymphoma or possibly thyroid dysorbitopathy. Criteria for orbital and ocular Lyme disease include the lack of evidence of other diseases, occurrence in patients living in an endemic area, positive serology, and, in most cases, response to treatment.
 

Head, Face, Neck Disturbances

Neurological complicationsof Lyme disease include meningitis, encephalitis, and dementia.

Worldwide, there are about 850 tick species and 30 major tick borne diseases. In North America  there are 82 identified species of ticks  causing 10 major diseases. 

Lyme Encephalitis or Tick-borne Encephalitis or diagnosed as Encephalopathy/ Encephalomyelitis/ Encephalitis infectious disease involving the central nervous system. meningitis (inflammation of the membrane that surrounds the brain and spinal cord), encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), or meningoencephalitis (inflammation of both the brain and meninges). 
European, Far Eastern , Tick-Borne Protozoal Infection,  Tick-Borne Tularemia, Tick-Borne Rickettsiaceae



Tick-borne encephalitis or meningoencephalitis: a bacterial infection of the brain, such as Lyme disease. The symptoms of encephalitis range from mild to severe and can be life threatening.  Possible symptoms: Fever, headache, nausea, decreased alertness, malaise, visual disturbances, stiff neck and back decreased consciousness, tremor, seizures. Encephalitis can last from a few days to several months. 
Permanent neurological consequences may follow recovery in some cases. Consequences may include personality changes, memory loss, language difficulties, seizures, and partial paralysis. Tick-borne meningoencephalitis is caused by a virus and may be a coinfection of lyme
Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) can also result from meningitis. Sympthoms vary with age, disease progression, and individual differences in tolerance to the condition. Infants: a rapid increase in head circumference and may include vomiting, sleepiness, irritability, downward deviation of the eyes (also called "sunsetting"), and seizures. Older children/adults may experience include headache followed by vomiting, nausea, papilledema (swelling of the optic disk which is part of the optic nerve), blurred or double vision. And problems with walking, impaired bladder control leading to urinary frequency and/or incontinence, and progressive mental impairment and dementia,  may have a general slowing of movements or may complain that his or her feet feel "stuck." 
Note: Cranio-Sacral Therapy  is particularly valuable in solving and resolving difficult and persistent conditions.
 

Cerebritis: means brain inflammation caused by a bacterial infection
Encephalitis means an inflammation of the brain. (The brain's tissues become swollen.) The combination of the infection and the immune reaction to it can cause headache and a fever, as well as more severe symptoms in some cases. (It can be a  complication of Lyme disease transmitted by ticks)
Encephalomyelitis -means both the brain and spinal cord are involved.
Meningitis: means inflammation of the brain's covering, or meninges
Lyme Meningitis inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord called the meninges. It often occurs when an infection elsewhere in the body spreads through the blood and into the cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that circulates in the spaces in and around the brain and spinal cord). One form of bacterial meningitis is related to Lyme disease. Lyme meningitis is generally less severe than other forms of bacterial meningitis and is not fatal. Lyme meningitis may be the first evidence of Lyme disease, occurring without a history of erythema chronicum migrans or flu-like illness. Symptoms in milder cases of encephalitis usually include: headache, fever, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, nausea, sleepiness, confusion 
Chronic meningitis is a slowly developing inflammation of the subarachnoid space (located within the layers of tissues covering the brain and spinal cord) associated neurological involvement affecting the lower extremities. The infection and inflammation develop more slowly, over weeks and months that lasts a month or longer.  If symptoms have been present for a month or more, meningitis is described as chronic.   People may have a fever, a stiff neck, a headache, double vision, or difficulty walking, or they may become confused. Headache  lasting weeks to months persistent/severe/ head pressure /congestion /burning. Burning in the brain and sometimes the neck and spinal cord or parts of the head, forehead or most of the head
Aseptic meningitis(The space between middle and inner layers of tissues covering the brain and spinal cord (meninges) is inflamed.) Sometimes aseptic meningitis is diagnosed when meningitis is caused by bacteria that are hard to identify, such as the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, syphilis, or tuberculosis. Symptoms Headache, stiff neck, malaise, nausea and muscle aches may develop over days.  Usually, aseptic meningitis causes symptoms that are similar to those of bacterial meningitis (fever, headache, vomiting, sluggishness, and a stiff neck). However, people do not become as ill. People may not have a fever, particularly when the cause is not an infection. 
 

Pseudotumor cerebri: is an extremely painful and disabling headache due to high pressure levels of cerebro-spinal fluid within the head. The  headache is not relieved by any medication. It can last days, months, and even years at a time. Intracranial noise is a common trait described as a "swooshing" sound or heartbeat in the ears. This tends to get worse with exertion. Other symptoms can include stiff neck and neck pain, vertigo (dizziness), back pain, memory loss and confusion, pain behind the eyes, vomiting, fatigue, and exercise intolerance. And some report photo-phobia, problems with balance and spatial awareness, disorientation, pins and needles and loss of sensation in the hands; to name a few. In some cases the cerebro-spinal fluid leaks down the nose, or from the ears. Can result in permanent loss of vision and even blindness as a result of pressure on the Optic Nerve 

Fifth Disease (slapped face): Begins with a low-grade fever, headache, and mild cold-like symptoms (a stuffy or runny nose). And occasionally  swollen glands, red eyes, sore throat, diarrhea, and rarely, rashes that look like blisters or bruises. These symptoms pass, and the illness seems to be gone until a rash appears a few days later. The bright red rash typically begins on the face. Several days later, the rash spreads and red blotches (usually lighter in color) extend down to the trunk, arms, and legs. The rash usually spares the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. As the centers of the blotches begin to clear, the rash takes on a lacy net-like appearance. Kids younger than 10 years old are most likely to get the rash. Older kids and adults sometimes complain that the rash itches.  It may take 1 to 3 weeks for the rash to completely clear, and during that time it may seem to worsen until it finally fades away entirely. Sunlight, heat, exercise, and stress may reactivate the rash. until it completely fades. This attack may be followed by joint swelling or pain, often in the hands, wrists, knees, or ankles.

Cranial neuritis Lyme's Bell's palsy7th nerve paresis. Lyme disease can cause facial nerve paralysis  usually involving  forehead.. In blacks, sarcoidosis (see Interstitial Lung Diseases: Sarcoidosis) is a common cause of facial nerve paralysis. See Bell's Palsy
 

Heart Disturbances.
Magnesium deficiency include's confusion, disorientation, loss of appetite, depression, muscle contractions and cramps, tingling, numbness, abnormal heart rhythms, coronary spasm, migraines and seizures.
Bacterial infective endocarditis (or fungal endocarditis or subacute bacterial endocarditis): Endocarditis is a serious infection of the heart valves or lining of the heart.  The bacteria that enters the bloodstream and settles in the heart lining, a heart valve or blood vessel causing an infection. It is often a complication of Lyme disease.  For most people, microorganisms in the bloodstream do not pose a problem. But if one of your heart valves becomes damaged, your body sends immune cells, platelets, and fibrin (a clotting material) to heal the valve. These healing clumps are dangerous because they can break off and enter the bloodstream and can block a blood vessel. A suddenly changing murmur or the discovery of a new murmur is a sign of endocarditis. During infective endocarditis  there may be abnormal urine color, blood in the urine, night sweats (may be severe), paleness, shortness of breath with activity, swelling of feet, legs, abdomen, weakness, malaise, with intermittent fever,  fatigue, chills, muscle, joint, and back pain, stiff neck muscle,  aches, headache, delirium, seizures, and decreased energy and when it has become chronic (lasting for months) you may feel feverish and chilled, be very tired, lose weight, and have joint pain, night sweats, or the symptoms of heart failure. Other symptoms associated with infection of the heart valves (endocarditis) may include: 
Janeway lesions: appear as flat, painless, red to bluish-red spots on the palms and soles, may be hemorrhagic or purple) or
Osler's nodes: painful, red, raised lesions on the finger pulps  or on the soles of the feet. 
Splinter hemorrhages: Small, narrow, red to reddish-brown lines, dark lines (blood) under the fingernails, or toenails, that look like wood splinters

Roth's spots:Burst blood vessels in the retina of the eyes with white or pale centers
Complications: Severe valve damage, kidney inflammations, jaundice, brain abscess,  congestive heart failure, rapid or irregular heartbeats,  brain abscess,  mycotic aneurysm, intracranial hemorrhage,  seizures, strokes, blood clots or emboli that travel to brain, kidneys, lungs, or abdomen.
Dilated cardiomyopathy,DCM, congestive cardiomyopathy: The heart becomes weakened and enlarged, and cannot pump blood efficiently affecting  the lungs, liver, and other body systems. Symptoms are none or mild fatigue or weakness and eventually leads to:.

Sudden heart failure:Pulmonary edema -rapid fluid buildup in the lungs that may cause severe shortness of breath, fast irregular heartbeat, coughing up pink foamy mucus.
Congestive heart failure (gradual): Fluid buildup (edema), especially in the legs, ankles, and feet, wheezing during normal activities from shortness of breath,   dry, hacking cough, especially when lying down, irregular heart-beats, or extra beats, dizziness, fainting, or feeling tired or weak, rapid weight gain caused by water retention, increased urination at night, abdominal swelling, tenderness, or pain.
Bradycardia (Slow Heart Rate) - Conditions that damage the heart's electrical system and disrupt the regular, rhythmic impulses that keep the heart rate normal. These conditions include:Myocarditis. Endocarditis. Sarcoidosis, .Lyme disease and other. Uunderactive thyroid gland
First-Degree Atrioventricular Block  is a type of bradycardia (too-slow heartbeat) that also is called atrioventricular, or AV block. In this condition, the electrical signals that stimulate heart muscle contractions are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles). No symptom
 

Heart arrhythmias:The electrical impulses in the heart that coordinate your heartbeats don't function properly, causing the heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.
 Low in magnesium can also cause a rapid heart beat.
Myocarditis is infection of the heart muscle by a virus. The virus invades the heart muscle to cause local inflammation. After the initial infection subsides, the body's immune system continues to inflict inflammatory damage to the heart muscle. and this prolongs the myocarditis. No symptoms or  pain in the chest

Mitral valve prolapse(also known as "click murmur syndrome" and "Barlow's syndrome") Most people have no symptoms, others have fatigue,  sensations of fast or irregular heart beats,  anxiety, chest pain, and migraine headaches

Vasculitis:Inflamed blood vessels (arteries, veins, and capillaries) making it difficult or impossible for blood to get through and in rare cases or may stretch and weaken so much that it bulges and may possibly burst. Symptoms are fever, feeling tired and weak, no appetite, aches and pains. If it affects the nerves: numbness, tingling, and weakness in various parts of the body and may experience symptoms in their limbs, such as loss of feeling or strength in the hands and feet or shooting pains in the arms and legs. This is specific to a particular organ or body system: e.g. Skin: Variety of skin changes, including purple or red spots. The changes may look like clusters of small dots, splotches, bruises, or hives. They may be itchy or painless. Joints: Aches and arthritis  Lungs: Shortness of breath or even cough up blood. Chest x ray may look like pneumonia, even though they are not. Gastrointestinal tract: Ulcers in the mouth, abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, sometimes a  rupture in the intestines. Sinuses, nose, and ears: Sinus infections, chronic middle ear infections, ulcers in the nose, or in certain cases there may be hearing loss.
Eyes: Blurring or loss of vision. Brain: Headaches, confusion, changes in behavior, or strokes.
 

Immune and Endocrine Disturbances
Disorders endocrine may result when too few hormones are secreted or too many are secreted.

Thymus gland isthe central control organ for the immune system. It is the infection fighting immune system gland. (Immune system cells are produced by the thymus gland, spleen and other organs.) When it is functioning properly, the thymus gland acts like a thermostat to provide the right balance of immunity. It turns up to help the body fight infection and down to prevent auto immune disease.  Signs that the Thymus is being disturbed could be shortness of breath, muscle weakness, facial swelling, blurred vision, double vision, neck swelling, neck pain, flushing, diarrhea and asthma

Thyroid gland secretes the hormone thyroxine (T4) oms.  The amount of T4 produced by the thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary gland is a thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) The amount of TSH that the pituitary sends into the blood stream depends on the amount of T4 that the pituitary sees. If the pituitary sees very little T4, then it produces more TSH to tell the thyroid gland to produce more T4. Once the T4 in the blood stream goes above a certain level, the pituitary's production of TSH is shut off. In fact, the thyroid and pituitary act in many ways like a heater and a thermostat. When the heater is off and it becomes cold, the thermostat reads the temperature and turns on the heater. When the heat rises to an appropriate level, the thermostat senses this and turns off the heater. Thus, the thyroid and the pituitary, like a heater and thermostat, turn on and off.
Over active thyroid, may manifest as weight loss, increased appetite, palpitations, rapid heartbeat, irregular heartbeat, shakiness, sweating, feeling "hot", eye or vision changes, nervousness, anxiety or anxiety attacks, irritability, a fine trembling in hands and fingers, sweating, changes in menstrual patterns, Increased sensitivity to heat, changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements, enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of the neck, fatigue, muscle weakness, difficulty sleeping and sometimes eyeballs bulge out of their orbits (protruding eyes) causing dry eyes, or excessive tearing, light sensitivity, blurry or double vision, inflammation, or reduced eye movement. diarrhea, stomach and bowel abnormalities, anxiety, trouble sleeping, fatigue, weakness, or hair loss. It may also over enlarge the gland  causing a goiter.
Under active thyroid, may manifest as  depression, forgetfulness, decreased concentration or fatigue, weight gain,  depression and constipation, feeling cold or sluggish, cold intolerance, hair loss, dry skin,  dry or thinning hair, round puffy face, hoarseness, tingling in hands/feet, high cholesterol, constipation, irregular or heavy menstrual periods in pre menopausal women, low sex drive or infertility, thinning of eyebrows, abdominal bloating, cold hands or feet, Joint or muscle pain, thickening of the skin, thin, brittle fingernails.

Parathyroid glands: Sole purpose  is to control calcium within the blood. Signs of an imbalanced parathyroid is not feeling well, feeling  run down and tired, feeling old, cranky, lack of interest, poor concentration,  forgetful, depression,  nervous system complaints, Gastric acid reflux; heartburn; GERD., kidney stones, sleeping problems,  bones hurt, bone fractures, pancreatitis, peptic ulcers, osteoporosis and osteopenia , decrease in sex drive, thinning hair (predominately in older females), high Blood Pressure (sometimes mild, sometimes quite severe; up and down a lot), heart palpitation, recurrent headaches, loss of energy, tired all the time, tingling lips, fingers, and toes, muscle cramps, pain in the face, legs, and feet, abdominal pain, dry hair, brittle nails, dry, scaly skin, cataracts, weakened tooth enamel (in children), muscle spasms, seizures. Malabsorption (chronic pancreatitis, small bowel disease can leads to hypocalcemia.

Thepituitary controls the Adrenal glands, Ovaries, Testes, and  Thyroid gland and help control some of the following; Growth, blood pressure, some aspects of pregnancy/childbirth/uterine contractions/breast milk production, sex organ functions in both women and men, thyroid gland function, conversion of food into energy (metabolism) and water in the body Not enough manifests as: Child growth delay, in adults decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, elevated cholesterol, low bone density (osteoporosis), impaired psychological well-being, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, irregular or absent menses, decreased body hair, decreased muscle strength, hot flashes, mood changes, poor appetite, nausea, weakness, vomiting, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, dizziness, body aches, fatigue, weakness, cold intolerance, dry skin, constipation, heavy/painful menses, weight gain, memory loss, mood disturbance, inability to lactate, increased thirst and frequent urination Too much: coarse body hair, erectile dysfunction, deep, husky voice, joint pain, exaggerated facial features, protrusion of the jaw, thickening of the ribs, creating a barrel chest, widening of spaces between teeth, widening of the fingers and toes, excessive sweating and often an offensive body odor, headaches, irregular menstrual cycles, irritability, swelling of the hands and feet,  weakness in the arms and legs

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

Adrenal Glands:(Part one adrenal cortex  Part two adrenal medulla).Work interactively with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland: The hypothalamus produces corticotropin-releasing hormones, which stimulate the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland, in turn, produces corticotropin hormones, which stimulates the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroid hormones.
Part one  adrenal cortex secretes  hormones directly into the bloodstream affecting the body's metabolism. The  cortisol, controls the body's use of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and along with hydrocortisone hormones, suppresses inflammatory reactions in the body and also affects the immune system.
Aldosterone  hormone inhibits the level of sodium excreted into the urine, maintaining blood volume and blood pressure. Androgen hormones have minimal effect on the development of male characteristics.  The adrenal medulla helps a person in coping with physical and emotional stress by secreting adrenaline which increases the heart rate and force of heart contractions, facilitates blood flow to the muscles and brain, causes relaxation of smooth muscles, helps with conversion of glycogen to glucose in the liver, and other activities and also secretes nonadrenaline affecting the blood pressure. Unbalanced adrenals produces too much or too little hormones.    Example of too little hormone secretion would manifest as dizziness, weakness, fatigue, weight loss and decreased appetite, body temperature disturbance, emotional abnormalities, excess thirst, obesity, uncontrolled urination, lowered function of sexual hormones (hypogonadism), inability to smell, body temperature disturbance,  emotional abnormalities,  excess thirst, obesity, lowered function of sexual hormones, inability to deal with stress, darkening of skin, pain in your lower back, abdomen or legs, Muscle or joint pains, low blood pressure,  nausea, diarrhea or vomiting, salt craving,  fainting, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), irritability depression. Too much secretion of hormones would manifest as acquisition of male traits in a female because of excess testosterone production or acquisition of female traits in a male because of excess estrogen production, too early puberty,  hypertension and low potassium, Weight gain, particularly around your midsection and upper back, fatigue, muscle weakness, moon face, facial flushing, hump between shoulders pink or purple stretch marks on the skin of abdomen, thighs, breasts and arms,  thin and fragile skin that bruises easily, slow healing of cuts, insect bites and infections, depression, anxiety and irritability, loss of emotional control,   thicker or more visible body and facial hair (hirsutism), acne, irregular or absent menstrual periods in females, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction in males, new or worsened high blood pressure, glucose intolerance that may lead to diabetes, headache, bone loss.

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.

Pancreas: Secretes enzymes to help break down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and acids in the duodenum and also secretes a bicarbonate to neutralize stomach acid in the duodenum. The endocrine tissue in the pancreas are insulin and glucagon (which regulate the level of glucose in the blood) and somatostatin (which prevents the release of the other two hormones). Signs of a malfunctioning pancreas could be feeling ill,  fatigued, abdominal pain that radiate's to the back, chest  or  upper abdomen, rapid pulse rate, poor appetite, yellowing of the skin and eyes, weight loss, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, itching, fever, swelling in the upper abdomen, fluid build-up in the abdominal cavity.

Enviromental Ilness:A mind/body negative reaction to something in environment. May manifest as headaches, cough, fatigue, nausea, respiratory problems, dry or inflamed skin, eye irritation, fever, chills, muscle aches.  May take years to react or have an instant reaction. Becomes worse when remaining in the environment and lessens when away from the environment. (Some causes: Dust mites, cockroaches, pollen, or pets, improperly ventilation, fumes from cleaning solvents or cigarette smoke, new buildings or new carpets, bacteria, molds, or viruses that have built up in heating and cooling ducts, carpets, ceiling tiles, or insulation.  Symptoms of environmental illness are difficult to diagnose and may be mistaken for other health deteriorating problems.

Epstein-barr syndrome (Infectious mononucleosis; Mono; Kissing disease; Mononucleosis): Infection causing fevers, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. Mono may begin slowly with fatigue, malaise, headache, and sore throat. The sore throat becomes progressively worse, often with enlarged tonsils covered with a whitish-yellow covering. The lymph nodes in the neck are frequently enlarged and painful. The symptoms of mono gradually subside on their own over a period of weeks to months. Also loss of appetite, drowsiness, enlarged spleen, muscle aches or stiffness, rash, yellow cast to skin, headache, neck stiffness, sensitivity to light, shortness of breath, chest pain, rapid heart rate, cough, nosebleed, hives, fatigue.

Locomotor Disturbances

The word "arthritis" means "joint inflammation."  There are over 100 types of arthritis.
Lymphocytic meningoradiculitis: Intense pain, mostly in the lumbar and cervical regions, and radiating to the extremities;migrating sensory and motor disorders of the peripheral nerves, peripheral radiculopathies, and cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in the form of lymphocytic pleocytosis indicating blood-brain barrier damage. The symptoms may include facial paralysis, abducens palsy, anorexia, tiredness, headache, diplopia, paraesthesias, erythema migrans, and other disorder Lymphocytic meningoradiculitis probably due to infection by Borrelia burgdorferi.
Bannwarth syndrome/Garin-Bujadoux- Lymphocytic meningoradiculitis probably due to infection by Borrelia burgdorferi, the cause of Lyme disease. It is an illness characterized by intense pain, mostly in the lumbar and cervical regions, and radiating to the extremities; migrating sensory and motor disorders of the peripheral nerves, peripheral radiculopathies, and cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in the form of lymphocytic pleocytosis indicating blood-brain barrier damage. The symptoms may include facial paralysis, abducens palsy, anorexia, tiredness, headache, diplopia, paraesthesias, erythema migrans, and other disorders. 
Lyme Arthritis: Caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. 
- Sixty percent of people infected with Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria suffer at least one episode of arthritis if untreated. Lyme Arthritis can develop from a few weeks to several years after Stage I, however, in about a half a year after the initial infection, 50% of those infected (without treatment) will suffer episodes of obvious arthritis, including the symptoms of swelling and discomfort in one or more joint(s). (Usually the joint arthritis is one-sided rather than a matching joint affected on the other side of the body, and migration of the joint pain may prefer the larger joints, especially the knees.)
-Attacks may last for weeks or months, although they may also become less frequent over time and eventually disappear, leaving about 10% with damaged joints.
-About 10 percent of those who reach the "arthritic" point will go on to suffer chronic Lyme Arthritis. These will have joints swelling for months at a time, or certain joints will become enlarged and achy for a year or more. 
- Lyme Arthritis is potentially disabling, yet early diagnoses and antibiotic treatment can be difficult.
Symptoms  may include Pain-Stiffness-Swelling-Redness-Warmth-Decreased range of motion Other symptoms may include: Fever- Fatigue -Rash -Weight loss Breathing problems Dry eyes and mouth Night sweats Pain Swelling Stiffness tenderness
 

Spinal arachnoiditis

(ALS) Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
-Muscle weakness in one or more of the following: hands, arms, legs or the muscles of speech, swallowing or breathing, twitching and cramping of muscles, especially those in the hands and feet, impairment of the use of the arms and legs, "thick speech" and difficulty in projecting the voice, in more advanced stages, shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing and swallowing.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Tender, warm, swollen joints- Symmetrical pattern of affected joints -Joint inflammation often affecting the wrist and finger joints closest to the hand, ot  neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. One or some.-Fatigue, occasional fevers, a general sense of not feeling well -Pain and stiffness lasting for more than 30 minutes in the morning or after a long rest.-Symptoms that last for many years

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic local or regional musculoskeletal pain disorder that may involve either a single muscle or a muscle group. The pain may be of a burning, stabbing, aching or nagging quality. Where the patient experiences the pain may not be where the myofascial pain generator is located. This is known as referred pain. Some factor prompts the development of a "trigger point" that, in turn, causes pain. In addition to the local or regional pain, people with myofascial pain syndrome also can suffer from depression, fatigue and behavioral disturbances, as with all chronic pain conditions. 
People with myofascial pain experience chronic muscle pain that can worsen. Signs and symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome may include: Area of tension in your muscle that may feel like a knot or tight spot. Deep, aching muscle pain Pain that persists or worsens. Muscle or joint stiffness. Limited mobility. Weakness. Clumsiness. Lack of coordination. Difficulty sleeping due to pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome  numbness a burning and tingling sensation in the thumb, index, and middle fingers, and sometimes the palm. Symptoms appear at night. 

Tennis elbow is soreness or pain on the outer part of the elbow. The pain may spread down your arm to your wrist. The main symptom is pain, which may begin with a dull aching or soreness on the outer part of the elbow that goes away within 24 hours after an activity. As time goes on, it may take longer for the pain to go away. The condition may further progress to pain with any movement, even during everyday activities, such as lifting a jug of milk. Pain may spread to the hand, other parts of the arm, shoulder, or neck (Myofascial pain syndrome)
Mononeuritis multiplex (Mononeuropathy multiplex - Multifocal neuropathy): Neurological disorder that involves damage to at least two separate nerve areas.
Specific symptoms vary with the individual nerve involved. Usually abnormal sensations, numbness and tingling, burning pain,  difficulty moving a part of the body (paralysis), lack of control of movement of a part of the body, lack of or decreased sensation in any part of the body, Inability to move a part of the body
Gout:A buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints and surrounding tissues. Symptoms- Warmth, pain, swelling, and extreme tenderness in a joint, usually a big toe joint. Pain that starts during the night and is so intense that even light pressure from a sheet is intolerable. Rapid increase in discomfort, lasting for some hours of the night and then easing during the next few days. As the gout attack subsides, the skin around the affected joint may peel and feel itchy. 
Other symptoms may include: Very red or purplish skin around the affected joint, which may appear to be infected. Fever. Limited movement in the affected joint.
Some people may not experience gout as many painful attacks but rather develop chronic gout. Chronic gout in older adults may be less painful and can be confused with other forms of arthritis. Gout may first appear as nodules (tophi) on the hands, elbows, or ears. There may be no classic symptoms of a gout attack. 
By the time you experience the symptoms of a gout attack, uric acid has been building up in your blood, and uric acid deposits have been forming on one or more of your joints. Found on joints of the feet, ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, and elbows may also be involved. Inflammation of the fluid sacs (bursae) that cushion tissues may develop, particularly in the elbow (olecranon bursitis) and knee (prepatellar bursitis).

Plantar fasciitis-  heel pain inflammation of the plantar fascia — the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes. Causes stabbing or burning pain that's usually worse in the morning because the fascia tightens (contracts) overnight. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. Sharp pain in the inside part of the bottom of your heel, which may feel like a knife sticking in the bottom of your foot. Heel pain: that tends to be worse with the first few steps after awakening, when climbing stairs or when standing on tiptoe. Or after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position or pain after, but not usually during, exercise 
Mild swelling in your heel.

NeuropathicPain continuous or/and in episodes.Like an electric shock. Feels like "pins and needles",  burning or coldness, sensations, numbness and itching. burning or "icy hot" feeling extending from their neck down the spine with certain movements, etc.."Ordinary" pain results from  stimulation of pain fibers, while neuropathic pain often results from the firing of both pain and non-pain (touch, warm, cool) sensory nerve fibers serving the same area.  The result is signals that the spinal cord and brain do not normally receive. Neuropathy often results in numbness, abnormal sensations  that occur either spontaneously or in reaction to external stimuli, and a characteristic form of pain, called neuropathic pain or neuralgia, that is qualitatively different from the ordinary pain one might experience from stubbing a toe.TMJ disease, chronic gingivitis, erosion of enamel and other dental changes, assorted tremors and tics, pressure-related neuropathic symptoms (e.g. an arm going to "sleep" while resting on a car door while driving), intensification of migraine syndromes, and the presence of palpable nodules in a peripheral nerve distribution, which we hypothesize represents myelin sheath hypertrophy of an affected nerve, mimicking or possibly representing a neurofibroma. Some cranial neuropathies mimic sinus disease or other chronic headache syndromes. Because of the frequency with which 5th nerve inflammation exists, we have found it helpful to add a novel musculoskeletal complaints, and occasionally these are the major and most debilitating problems, sometimes accompanied by fever and chills. Typically, large joints are involved and the arthralgias are migratory, which in fact fits the classic description for Lyme disease. In a few cases, actual arthritis is evident, although only rarely does this persist)

Growth and change takes us along an ever-changing road.
Sometimes the road is hard and craggy. 
Sometimes we climb mountains. 
Sometimes we slide down the other side on a toboggan. 
Sometimes we rest.
Sometimes we grope through the darkness. 
Sometimes we are blinded by the sunlight.
At times many may walk with us on the road; 
sometimes we feel nearly alone.
Ever changing, always interesting, always leading someplace better, someplace good.
What a journey!

~Melodie Beattie

Even when we are knee deep in Neuroborreliosis we have opportunities everyday to grow. When we grow we feel we are doing something.... that we are in charge of our lives. We feel our life has a purpose. We feel alive and in growth...in spite of what is trying to trip us up.
Look for the opportunities and sprout a little every day...
