Hi everybody,
 
I haven't posted in a while. I was doing pretty well, except yeast. Now I got flu like symptoms since two weeks and neckpain, stiff joints, especially in my hands and my legs and arms feel exhausted, like I walked a marathon, swollen glands in my neck and a slightly nausea feeling . Some days I'm perfectly fine and other days I have these symptoms for several hours.
I'm afraid Lyme is active again. What do you think? Has anybody else these symptoms? Any advice is welcome.
I called my docter and het put me on Biaxin.
EM rash oct. 24 2007, 10-30-08: doxy 100 mg. bid for three weeks. Felt better, but symptoms slowly got back and much worse
2-21-08 until 4-23-08: doxy 100 mg. bid (described by family doctor)
4-24-08: start doxy 200 mg. bid and Biaxin XL 1000 mg once a day (seeing an Infectious Disease Doctor)
8-8-08 until 8-21-08: adding Flagyl 500 mg. bid
8-21-08: off all ABX   
9-17-08: doing herbs but symptoms slowly reappeared,so started Biaxin 500 mg. bid on 9-17-08
11-12-08: off abx, start Diflucan

Hi goodoldtimes.  I am sorry you are having symptoms again.  Were you symptom free for at least two months when you stopped treatment?

Were you tested and/or treated for any co-infections?

I don't think I was symptom free for two months. A month before I stopped ABX I still had die-off symptoms for one day.
I haven-t been tested, because I had a bullseye rash. I haven't been treated for co-infections. I asked my doctor if I could have a test to see in the Lyme is active again and he said that the tests are unreliable and suggested to use Bixin until I see him in two weeks.
