Actually, I ate ice for years until I was diagnosed and treated for iron deficiency anemia. And the hoarse voice being a symptom of lyme made me stop in my tracks. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia years ago. I have a lot of aymptoms of lyme but have never been tested, will be bringing it up to my doc. Thanks!

Thanks for the info very helpful.

I have a weird “symptom” that my doctor ignores! My fingernails on one hand are very weak and break easily and grow very slowly. The other hand the nails are strong and grow normally. I just would like to know if anyone else has had this problem and found an answer?
