can I ask if any of you ever expereinced jolting sensations in your head with
the lyme disease?  I have constant jolting sensations in my head like my head
is being pushed back.  I also feel like the ground is going down every time I
walk and that my head is being pushed and pulled in every direction without
even moving it. Can you tell me if you or know anyone who has expereinced this
with lyme disease? Would these kind of symptoms get worse during a herx?  email

I wish I had some answers for you......but I've been experiencing a lot of
vertigo/dizziness, nausea too.  Is this very common with Lyme Disease?  If
it is.....what are all of you doing to combat it.  I can't work, when I'm
holding on to walls to comes and goes, but is most frequent in
the morning, and disappears as the day goes by. causes me to have an
upset stomach, so I can't eat either......I can at least still function
with all the other symptoms I have, but not dizziness....Connie

Yes, I  have alot of experience with these symptoms.  It feels like the ground
just turned into nothing but air and I am going to fall through it.  I also get
sudden feelings of falling down. Its definetly nuero, according to my Dr. who
is top LD literate) intensifies for me the longer I stand or when I get
overly fatigued..(doesn't take too much for that).   But, on the bright side,
though not completely gone it has improved for me with lots treatment.....don't
give up.....feel free to e-mail if I can help.

Good luck,

Yes, it is.  A bit of vertigo, or ataxia which seems like vertigo
in which we loose our sense of position of our bodies in space...
i.e. bump into walls, desks, stumble, stagger now and then like
a drunk sheep, is very common. And it comes and goes as the
infection dictates.


Scrimenti... on Acrodermatitis Chronica Atrophicans, 1995, Dec, JSTBD
Beerman...   on ataxia and paresis in syphilis, 1954, Practice of

Interesting how both of these guys were dermatologists.  Beerman was
Head of Department of Dermatology and Syphilolgy, Graduate School of
Medicine, MD, Sc.D. and consulted with Naval, VA, Psych hospitals,
Childrens's Hosptial and etcetera in the early 50's... co-authored with
John H. Stokes, professor emeritus, who had been the spokesperson
for the Penicillin Panel(funded in part by the Pennsylvania Medical
Society).  Too bad such wonderful things doctors could and can
do are going begging in the streets today.  I wonder why that is, in
terms of Lyme disease;  a no-fault, no guilt disease.

Ginger can be helpful for nausea, also there is a peppermint ginger combo that
can help. It is often used for travel sickness. I was diagnosed with Menie'res
a long time ago, vertigo and nausea were the main symptoms. Fluid in the inner
ear was the culprit, have been on dyazide ( a diuretic) since '88, which has
helped considerably. I often get attacks over the years when lyme symptoms
flare. I am beginning to wonder if perhaps I had lyme in '88 even though it was
not diagnosed until '92. Not at all unusual to be misdiagnosed is it!! Yeah
right!  Seriously though vertigo is listed as a symptom of lyme.  Try the
ginger it may help. Wishing you health and stability! deb
