THE UPDATE on my 13 y/o daughter please read the posts below for the early details. as of now, my daughter had an MRI to determine the cause of chronic migraine headaches (2 years now) and facial weakness - droopy smile and eyelid (progressivly worse, for 4 years). per the neurologist, the MRI was clear and ruled out brain tumor, brain damage, etc. it did NOT tell us why she has migraines. it did show she has a partial facial nerve, causing the smile weakness. he said 'Bells Palsy' as the working diagnosis. no treatment, cause unknown. now, here is where her history gets interesting. she had a bulls-eye rash and was ill (most severe migraine, cold/flu symptoms) in early May.....years after she has had the other symptoms from above. she was on 6 weeks of anti-biotics. her elisa test came up negative (of course). the neurologist just signed off on her getting Igenex testing. not sure what to be thinking at this point. since the rash in May, i have been concerned about lyme disease, but does anyone think her symptoms (migraines/facial paralysis) are from Lyme having already been present in her body? years? i have FMS and CFS Dx since 2002. (i had mono 6 weeks post-partum with her and had a son 2.5 years later - 3 years later had mild FMS symptoms, flared bigtime in 2002 and had my 3rd baby in 2005.) I haven't been tested for Lyme. is this something i could have given her via birth? i have 3 children.....2 before my Dx and 1 since. any and all thoughts welcome. please. lisa.
