I also gained 35 lbs within 6 months of beginning treatment couldn't believe how quickly it came on.
That was about
2 years ago. After 4 months on
the pic line I gradually began to lose it - all of it. I was told the lyme and co-infections cause a metabolic syndrome where the metabolism is slowed and compromised. I was also depressed from it but you will see as you improve you will lose the weight and you will also be able to be more active. In addition many of my allergic sensativities went away. There was a point where I couldn't drink filtered water without my mouth burning for hours after. I still have a long way to go as far as healing goes but I am definately 70% better than I was last year at this time. Blessings
