I'll be honest and admit that I had to move my office (by myself), had company coming, excuses, more excuses - so I went off antibiotics so I'd feel okay. I felt pretty good for the first two weeks - then BAM!!! All symptoms came back - especially the short-term memory loss, i.e. "what's the word for that? oh yeah, it's a fork." I thought I was having little strokes - the entire right side of my body was numb and the left hurt.
I've always followed the advice of my LLMD and now will continue to do so. I found liquid Mepron made my heart beat really fast and made me uncomfortable, so I'm on three different medications now.
When the heck is this going to end? I know no one really knows - but heck, I am so tired of being tired.
I am really glad I discovered this board and guess I should introduce myself - my name is Victoria and I was diagnosed 3.5 years ago. I remember pulling a tick off myself in the late 70's and then getting really sick, so I've had this for quite some time. I was tested by Igenix, but for the life of me can't make heads or tales out of the results. Hopefully I'll remember where I put the results
I hope this post isn't too long.
