In response to your statement:
 
Exactly. My adrenals were fatigued and that is exaclty what would happen. I would drag myself out of bed at noon and then I'd be ready to party at mid-night.  (: D
 
 
What did you do to make it better? Does it just get better w/lyme treatment or do you treat the adrenal problem? Did you have a test that showed you had adrenal problems?

I had adrenal problems..I took Seriphos at night to calm my adrenals down, and an herbal adrenal supplement during the day..got better with treatment.

The test is called Adrenal Stress Index and is by Diagnos-tech, Inc. (tel 425-251-0596) It shows your adrenal function in a 12 hour period, you do four tests. Any environmental doc will order it. Dont know about LLMD.

The treatment that was suggested to me was natural cortisol and DHEA. I decided against it because of Dr. S feeling about taking cortisol with mold toxins. So I am taking eleuthero root (ginseng). If you can take cortisol, I know many people that did well on it.   D

I am waiting for adrenal tests through the above lab. My doctor suspects high cortisol at night due to some insomnia and the fact that I have the most energy then. He thinks my cortisol levels are flipped.

He recommended I take 2 capsules of Phosphatidylserine (PS-100) 2 hours before bed. It helps to lower high cortisol. It does not lower a cortisol level that is normal, however.

Hope this helps too.
14 years undiagnosed Lyme. I had a bulls-eye rash following a camping trip to NC in 1994. Swollen knees and replapsing and remitting vertigo followed for the next 14 years. All Lyme tests negative. Could possibly be B. lonestari due to being bit in the South.
Just began treatment with low dose Minocycline and Benicar.

Seriphos (sold over the counter-google it, is Phosphatidylserine) It helps to regulate the cortisol at night.

Dowa- OTC. It is a bit $$. 60 pills (30 days for me) was ~$30-ish.

beths- Interesting the Sephros is nearly the same thing, but maybe better?? The site cals it "Phosphorylated Serine". It says it is less expensive and more efficient.

I will ask the doctor. Thanks.
