Thanks! to " Hoping to find a cure "
I needed that encouragement, this is the hardest battle I have ever had to fight. I used to be a high energy multi-tasker who helped raise infant grandchildren. I have always been there for my family and am the oldest of 6. My brothers and sisters have always looked up to me and now I dont even know who i am sometimes. I know one thing I am a fighter and I never give up. Sometimes I want to but I keep the faith. Guess we all need to help each other and remond each other that this is a long battle to fight.
Take care & thanks,
Thanks for the info on monocycline! Do you have the bad headaches, are they getting better?
I've had "head and neck pain" everyday since Jan 7th, 2008. In January for 2 weeks, it was 9/10, 10/10 scale. I didn't die and it wasn't a brain tumor or aneurism. Feb-March, it was 5/10 to 8/10 scale. Other symptoms began appearing. April - June, it was 3/10 to 6/10 scale. I started doxy then mino in June (finally diagnosed). June - Aug, it was 3/10 to 5/10 scale. Aug -present it is 2/10 to 3/10 scale.
This is only referring to my "head and neck pain", which is my #1 symptom, of my lyme disease. Throughout the year, I've called this pain headaches, brain fog, head pain, stiff necks, etc.
I am getting better and one day I will have a clear head again.
Glad to hear your head pain is getting better! I have had terrible stiffness in my neck , especially when I bend my head backwards. I am going to ask my dr. for minocycline next week. How was it on your stomach? I hear it isnt as bad as the doxy!
