Hi all - I was "cured" of LD through antibiotics for over two years. I recently started seeing a chiropractor, and my Lyme symptoms have returned. Do you think it is possible the two things are related? I know toxins can be released through chiro, and that's usually a good thing, but is it possible that my body has released hidden spirochettes?

I started having brain fog first (I teach 8th gr. English, so not a good problem to have!), then muscle spasms, and now dizziness. I am going to see my LLMD tomorrow.

OH Goodness YES> I have not been able to do Chiropractic or PT on my spine or back. Actually anywhere but mostly there. I have such a horrible time afterward and it brings back so many symptoms. It feels like an immediate response of release of toxins into my body.

I think the answer is yes. I would just stay away from it if you can. I have had to find other ways to deal with my back now and I would rather have back pain then have the disease.

But also if it is still sitting in there I am hoping there will be a way to get it out of there and killed from the area. Maybe that is where it goes to sit in remission?

I have heard that 'deep muscle masssage' can make symptoms worse too.
 
I used to have massage regularly - and thought that the fact that I felt worse for the next few days was a good thing !! now I am not so sure -hence I haven't had any kind of massage for a while.
 
maybe if you were detoxing properly and had a massage it might be beneficial - just a theory.

At the clinic here they say that toxins of any kind are stored in the muscles along your spine. If you have symptoms after an adjustment, how would that not be a good thing, in the long run. Sort of like having a herx, I mean if the toxins are releasing, how can that be bad?? D

I've heard taking at least 1000mg vitamin C prior to a chiropractic adjustment can help reduce the effect of the toxin release from the adjustment. Also, drinking plenty of water after would be good to help wash out the toxins.

Yes, apparently viruses, cysts, and other critters can hide in/around the spine and can be released by a variety of things. It is a good thing to get rid of them, but knowing how to handle it is important. Some essential oils are reputed to route out these hidden infections and kill them - and can complement chiropractic treatments nicely for this purpose.

deep tissue massage makes everything worse -- temporarily at least.
Bit June 08. Treated with 10 days of doxy 200 mgs.

Issues in Aug. Retreated in Sept. 08. Six weeks doxy 200 mgs.

Add Biaxin for six months.

Stopped all treatment for six weeks.

Still on doxy 200 mgs after another recent rash!

Doing okay but want to make sure I rid myself of it or any remaining stuff.

I've not been on HW for a while, but logged in today to ask this same question. wild!

I wanted to see an Osteopath but was worried it may spark some bacteria that may still be in hiding. I am pretty much 98% better, but was worried.
Now I need to rethink my next move

that's because toxins are being released. Initially it feels pretty bad, but it's a double edged sword because the toxin are being released which is a good thing, but you feel like hell during the process.

Thats exactly my point in my post. If toxins are there and need to come out, better sooner than later. D
