Does this sound like your symptoms?

I've never been diagnosed or had a blood test for lyme. I've been bitten by ticks many times since I was a kid, currently 34. The most recent I recall was about 10 years ago. I found the tick firmly attached to my leg.

I had nothing good to use but tried to heat a thumbtack and touch it. Nothing worked. I finally dug it out with a small finishing nail.

Fast forward to the last few years starting about 4 or 5 years ago... I had hurt my back nothing crazy, but around that time I noticed a buzzing in my feet like a cell phone. Never at the same time always alternating.

In the last 3 years have had all kinds of crazy symptoms come and go. Have been pretty sedentary except for brief times of trying to get in shape.

Fast forward to christmas and I had the flu type A. It was brutal unlike any sickness I've ever had. So about a week or 2 after getting the flu I have this burning sensation in my hands and my feet. Pretty much just the palms and the soles. Almost like you slapped your hands against a wall and that initial sting/burn feeling.

I've had no energy for probably the last 10 years although I must admit I am on my phone until late every night and eat unhealthy etc.

Now the one crazy symptom I'm curious about... in the past few years maybe when I get sick or change my diet or just out of the blue the original tick bite itches for a day or 2 it seems like. And I know it's the same spot as I scared it up lol trying to dig the tick out.

Non diabetic although I did try keto last year and it dehydrated me so bad my FBS was .1 over normal at 5.8

A year agoI had just normal blood test done and dr said all looked good.

I'm going to a dr Tomorrow to get blood test done should I push for a lyme test?

Thanks for any advice! As this burning hands and feet is driving me crazy!
