I'm sorry about your illness. I may have it as well. I had the rash, have the neuro symptoms etc...anyway, I do not think 1 month will be nearly enough but it's a start. You will probably get worse before better (herxheimer reaction). Just my opinion but I think you will improve but not to 100%. I personally do not think it is curable at this stage but is treatable and you can get your life back. It can go into remission for periods and come out again from stress. I had the rash, MS-like illness, improved on antibiotics only to have it come back years later after a surgery.
PS - I was on Diflucan daily for the 1 1/2 years that I was on antibiotics, to help with systemic candida.
I do not understand how this site works, as I thought dr.s responded to questions. My messages haven't shown up by people I have written to, so I was surprised to hear from you. Please know that I would like to keep in touch; I know your losses.
I hope being in the hospital will help you.
Doctors do not respond at his forum. This is a pt. to pt. forum. Doctors repond on the neurology and neurosurgery forum but it's tough to get a question posted. There are also doctors that respond on the neurology forum. It's pt. to pt. but doctors do respond there.
I have had lyme off and on again for years. I just started taking Samento, Burbur, Pinella, and numerous other homeopathic meds. I feel better. You can research this therapy prodocol online.
Be pro active , take antbiotics for at least a few months, not the 21 days the doctors originally thought would do the trick. Mine keeps coming back at least twice a year.
Good luck with the IV treatments........wishing you the best.
Please look into Dr J in kansas! if you go to ****.com there is a post about Dr J protocol this would be really good reading for you!!!! he has helped alot of people that were on deaths door and has a specific program for lyme in your brain!
