    so ignore if you wish: Have you been tested for tick-borne diseases, such as Borrelia (Lyme) or Bartonella? They are endemic in my area and several acquaintances have displayed baffling neurological symptoms in spite of normal MRIs. One even got a diagnosis of MS. These cases have turned out to be tick-borne diseases. About half do not remember being bitten.

      During all this I've basically been indoors and in bed. No real chance to get exposed to any ticks.

        It takes months or even years for neurological symptoms to show up. Just thinking it would be nice if antibiotics could take care of this. Take care.
