I googled "Lyme+cysts" and lo and behold, there is a form of Lyme disease called Borrelia spirochetes that produces cysts. The doctor who wrote the article stated that the disease can mimic a host of other diseases and can take on various forms.
This spirochetes has also been found in cases of multiple sclerosis, lateral sclerosis, and in all tested cases of Alzheimers disease (although only 12% of infected people in their test exhibited symptoms).
In addition to cysts, the disease can cause parasites, joint pain, fatigue, etc., virtually all of the symptoms I have been experiencing!
He mentions a Mycoplasma which I'm not sure I understand, but maybe this is the source of the red streaks?
He stated that Cat's Claw, magnesium and Vit. B12 are important supplements to cure this disease. I'm thinking of gradually incorporating his suggestions with the Salt+Vit. C therapy and see what transpires.
