Just keep it up careful your not allergic like u said u can be. otherwise dont stop and expect to get worse to get better
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

RD,

Believe me, I know how scary it can be. I had alot of sweating and I was running fever too. I'm not sure which med it was from though because I was on 3 of them. I had the chills and felt stupid in the head. It took me everything I had to think straight.

It doesn't sound like sweating would be an allergic reaction. I'd just watch it to be safe but continue taking it.

What other symptoms do you have?

Hi RottenDog,

     I also am on 500 mg azithromycin after being on the same abx IV for 3 months. I also experienced hot/cold, chills, sweating nervousness, weird feeling in my chest, etc. I believe you are just experiencing the effects of the new abx. I have started taking my oral every other day (on my own accord, not LLMD) as I read that this abx stays in your system for 66 hrs. Hang in there and hope (you will) you feel better soon. tongue

RD,

Are you taking it with a little food? I remember that it upset my stomach a little bit when I would first get on it. You know what you could do? Call the pharmacist and ask if they think sweating is some kind of reaction to the med. They should be able to tell you. I call my pharmacist so much, they know me by name, LOL. They know alot though.

In my opinion since I sweat so much on the meds, I think it's a herx but call the pharmacist and see. I'm still sweating by the way. You may have babesia.

CG, yes i take it int he middle of a meal this way i coat it in food to help not have a reaction. and its odd that when i feel the worst is 10 hours after taking it. and today when i woke up my underarm hurts almost like something is pinching it. its odd. need to change the name from lyme to anything and everything is possable disease.

RD,

I wonder if it's not a swollen gland? I've been having that off and on every month. It's more irritating than anything. Does it feel deep? I realized mine was a gland when my doctor poked that area and I nearly flew up to the roof. Boy did that hurt!

CG, no its not a gland. its like a pinch and when my arm is down it hurts the most. i have looked and done see anything. thought it may of been a ingrown hair. but its not. no redness swelling or anything. but boy it sure hurts and still does. its on the underside of my arm right above where you would shave, so i no its not razer burn either, as its pass that point.

i just wish whoever was pinching me would stop...lol ugggg

thank you TS, i hope it gets better soon to. today was my last pill for 7 days then i take em again for 3 days. its a odd cical to be on i think but i guess its better then nothing at all. time will tell

RD,

That's really weird. I wish they would stop pinching you too, LOL. No telling what it could be. Lyme brings out so many weird things.

I'm glad you're taking the med too, even though you're skipping some days. It is better than nothing like you said. Hopefully, before you're done, you can find something else that helps.

Yeah, that's what I meant by skipping them....meaning your doctor told you to do that. Yep, I remember reading that it stays in your body for 10 days. So, it looks like it will carry you for almost 2 months right?

That's not good about the celebrex. I would die if I ran out of pain meds, especially right now. I hope you make it through!

I had a really bad day yesterday. I feel like I've barely been making it through the day these past weeks. I don't know what's going on. I've been really tired and sleeping alot. Like 12 or more hours a day.
