Hi Kendal-I am doing okay. I am on week 3 of Rocephin and really feeling it now. The fatigue/exhaustion is unbelievable. I had to take a few weeks off work. I expected this though since it happened last time too. I am seeing Dr. D on Tuesday the 6th. I haven't seen him in 3 months.

He gave me a list of supplements to take for fatigue. They were COQ10, Siberian Eleuthero, Acetyl-L Carnitine and D-Ribose powder. They didn't help me but since fatigue is my worse problem I didn't think they would. But you should give them a try. I bought the Acetyl L Carnitine and COQ-10 in the drug store and the others I ordered online.

If you have any other questions about the supplements I will be happy to answer them. How are you feeling? I am still on oral Zithro, Malarone and Plaquenil. I am suppose to be switching to IV Zithro as soon as I get over the Rocephin herx. Take care and I hope you enjoyed the holidays.

Hi kendal-no I never had neck or spine pain. Only joint in my hands at one time. It would be really difficult to do rocephin shots because of the volume you would have to inject. Plus they would be everyday. I was doing bicillin 3X weekly and still getting scar tissue build up. What are you taking now? Is Dr. D still treating you? The only abx that ever helped me was rocephin that is why I am doing it again. I wouldn't have stopped it before but I had gallbladder problems.
