I was on Rocephin for about 4 months. It was the worst I have ever felt! I barely got out of bed and my brain fog was horrible. I bacame allergic after a couple weeks. I would break out into hives everyday. They kept me on it saying there was nothing else and gave me strong antihistamines. it was a long 4 months.
I got much better after it was all over. I think it helped. I had alot of leasions in my spine and brain before that. An MRI about 6 months later showed them alomost all gone. My MS Specialist couldn't believe how good i looked. She still won't admit I have Lyme but told me to keep doing whatevere I was doing beacause it is working.
2 1/2 years later I have a Baby who is Healthy and Happy and I feel good. I still have some symptoms if I get run down. I think that will happen for the rest off my life. I can live with that, I still worry that someday it will take over my brain and spine agian.
I hope you have a good LLMD who is supportive. I have never had a Dr closer than 600 miles and have never been able to afford constant care. I would have healed much faster with good care. It is so sad that Drs can be so clueless sometimes. I have lost alot of respect for many of them. I have tested CDC positive by 8 different Labs and still no Oregon Dr has ever treated or diagnosed me with Lyme.
I will stop ranting now. Let me know if I can answer any specific questios.
