Waited long and hard for this month's apt. only to be told that swollen, red, hot knee is probably not from lyme. WHAT! Probably something I am doing causing tendonitis which the lyme will make worse. OMG! I ask about a herx and he said they last only about a week and not a month like this knee has been, on and off. Is that the case? Also, other knee is bothering, headaches have returned, flank pain is back, different symptoms everyday, isn't that what happens with herx?
He has agreed to keep treating and I will start doxy after vacation for erlichosis. This is a very nice infectious disease dr. who came recommended by lyme assoc. The first LLMD I went to didn't look me in the eye, gave me short one word answers, and I was out in 15 minutes after waiting over 3 years for diagnosis.
So frustrating but I guess I shouldn't complain since there are those a lot worse off than me.
