yes i wouldnt put anything past lyme disease as with me it has caused an
annoying over stimultion of the gonads with writhing aching and pains and
even causes regular nitelong erections and over stimulation and even has
on occaision caused psontaneous orgasms in seconds with no mental or
physical stimulations involved!,ive had to put up with a multitude of nasty
and extremely painfull symptoms from undiagnosed or medicaly treated lyme
for over two years going on three now,and it never suprises me what it will
do to me net as symptoms seem to phase in and out and mutate over time,
all i know is that its wearing my bodys softer organs out with its constant
pestering and offset body temperature it causes to the whole system, i am
sooo sick of lyme and how society without it never seems to understand or ever decide how to help and deal with its symptoms and detruction!
