Does pheriferal neuropathy caused by Lyme disease go away by itself after healing lyme? My left foot is burning...I can't get no sleep because of it

Does pheriferal neuropathy caused by Lyme disease go away by itself after healing lyme?   My left foot  is burning...I can't get no sleep because of it

See a neurologist: This is one situation in which i would urge a 2nd opinion with a neurologist if you have not already seen one. If the neuropathy is related to lyme disease (and imo that is a large "if") the injury to the nerves heals very slowly. A neurologist would rule out other causes and offer you meds which are often very helpful in minimizing the symptoms. ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: You need to be thoroughly evaluated and to communicate effectively with the doctor(s) seeing you. This cannot be done long distance over the internet. Make a detailed list of all your symptoms, the sequence in which they occur and their relationships with each other and take this with all you prior medical records to either a rheumatologist or an infectious diseases doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Autoimmune: Post-infectious sequelae can cause a variety of syndromes and symptoms, largely of the autoimmune etiology. CIDP is a possibility. Do you have reflexes? CIDP can be diagnosed with EMG/NCS. Did you have that? There are panels of antibodies associated with not only CIDP but also autoimmune dysautonomia, which is another consideration. Were these panels sent? Mayo has comprehensive panels. For dysautonomia testing, I would recommend tilt table and skin biopsy for small fiber neuropathy. Other considerations include myopathies, which can be metabolic or mitochondrial, and I would recommend EMG as well as possible muscle biopsy. ...Read more
