Hi Jackie and Others,
It's been at least a year, but I messed up. Started feeling pretty good and at the same time, starting getting acid reflux because of the antibotics. Also, my neuro at UCSF told me I do NOT have lyme disease. So, in short, I decided it was time to stop my treatment. Big Mistake.
I know, I know......you told me (Jackie :)
Anyway, I went back to LLMD's office and am awaiting test results. My history of lyme did not include pain, but I'm telling you, I have been in so much pain lately. It hits me one day, every bone in my body is aching and then bam, the next day it's gone. I had a routine physical a few weeks ago and my RA factor was elevated but I don't think i have RA. I don't have any other symptoms or positive tests for it. My general doc wants me to see a Rhueme and I will, but I know that this is Lyme.
For those who don't know me, I have tested positive with Igenex many times, I had a known tick bite when I was younger. However, I had to have my gallbladder removed 5 years ago and all my symptoms started just a few weeks after surgery which I guess is pretty common because our bodies are under so much stress in surgery/recovery that out immune systems cannot keep the lyme in check anymore. As I type this, my toes are throbbing on and off. Sounds weird but true. On again, off again tinnitus still bothers me too. UGH....
Anyway, just wanted to check in, say hi to everyone who is dealing with this. It's sooooo frustrating!!!!!
Oh...Happy Easter :)
