My Lyme band 23 came back reactive, what does that mean. I have been fatigue, headaches, neck aches, for 2 months now. Could this mean I have lyme.?

Must take in context: You shouldn't base a diagnosis of lyme disease on a single band of a western blot. A history of tick bite in an area where lyme disease is common, and rash are other important factors. The symptoms you report could be due to many things. Speak to your doctor. ...Read more

What could chronically high unconjugated Bilirubin mean in someone with orthostatic syncope, headaches, fatigue, neuropathic pain and a history Lyme?

Probably nothing: You probably have Gilbert's non-disease and some unrelated health problems. I trust your physician is aware of this and has run a reticulocyte count to be sure you are not hemolyzing. Your other symptoms suggest a stressful living situation but there are a host of other entities to rule out -- have you been checked for porphyria? Best wishes. ...Read more

Could my Lyme disease headaches have just been dehydration? If I had Neurological Lyme wouldn't I have goten Bell's Palsy? Albumin 5.8, other labs norml

Perhaps, no: Lyme disease can cause any symptom, including headaches, but if you have Lyme it does not mean all your symptoms are caused by Lyme. Dehydration can cause headaches whether you have Lyme or not. If staying hydrated prevents your headaches they're probably not due to Lyme. And while many with Bell's Palsy have Lyme, most with Lyme don't get Bell's Palsy. High albumin is usually due to dehydration. ...Read more
