Doctor Told Me I Have Lyme.. Now What?
Hi all,

About 2 years ago, I had a bunch of sudden onset symptoms ranging from physical to neurological. Happened out of nowhere and most of the bad symptoms lasted about 1.5 months. After this time, most of the symptoms subsided but there were some lingering things like mild-dizziness and my eyes not focusing properly.

In December 2016, I seemed to have another bad episode that lasted one month but this time symptoms were more gastrointestinal and I had weird burning/tingling sensations that again passed after about 1 month.

I paid for a bunch of tests to be done by a Lyme literate doctor here in Australia. The test came back saying the Western Blot IgM was detected and the comments noted the bands were p41, OspC and Osp17. The lab that did this test was the Australian Rickettsial Reference Laboratory Foundation in Geelong Australia.

I asked the doctor what I should do, he prescribed me with 150mg of Minocycline per day, Secnidazole 400mg once per month, Tramadol Hydrocholoride 100mg twice daily, Olive leaf/cats claw/ baical skullcap/eleuth mix and some probiotics.

I asked him how long to take this for, he literally said "forever". He had no real advice and I don't know what to do from this point.

I don't even know whether I have Lyme or what to do, but the doc is sure I have Lyme but says its not recognised based on Australian standards due to political issues etc.

Any advice or help on what I can/should do would be greatly appreciated.  I considered trying the antibiotics for 1 month and seeing what happens. I'm not in debilitating pain or anything like that but I get weird symptoms that are annoying and I don't want things to get worse. Please help if possible.
