Eric and Davey,
I read your posts. In my opinion you're both right. Maybe some kind of mental help might be helpful for me.
GP in my country don't know nothing about tick born deseases. Insurance companies never heard about it. Some Neuros know, of course, but they don't know treatment. Actaully Croatia, capital town Zagreb and specially my area is most infected place in Europe. The first case was diagnosed in 1987. The fact is that I've been bitten 3 times in 2002 (spring and summer). After first bite (embedded tick, normal size, no rush, no erythema migrans) I took azytromicin (Sumamed by PLIVA; our Croatian drug available in States).
After second bite (embedded tick, normal size, no e.m., no fever or flu like signs) I've done nothing. The third one was VERY UNUSUAL tick I've ever seen in my life (I'm living with pets all my life and I know how ticks look like in my county). It was very little one (probably "nymph" kind), I got erythema migrans (1" in circle) and flu like symptoms during next couple days. Then I done nothing. I didn't take any antibiotics or any other drugs.
My mistake. Mea culpa!
I've been verynervous and upset those days, my parents died, I left my home etc. I've forgotten about ticks. But after 2 months my calvary starting with epididymis infection (treatment with large penicilin doses), vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus. Menniere syndrom ruled out. Nothing happened during 2003. Fasciculations started last March with eyelid twitching. In my previous posts I have described tests and exams which I done last 12 months.
Last few weeks I have a lot of little twitches on my eyelids, around my lips, in and on my . Pain in my back, arm, right heel.
