Just curious if anyone is taking LDN for their pain with Lyme's? I'm on LDN (originally given b/c I was dx with Ulcerative Colitis) and I notice I'm more happier and have more energy in the morning and stable sex drive when I'm on it. It's not helping with my gut issues that I have, but I like it otherwise. I use the transdermal cream.
 
Is one of the Lyme's symptoms sore heels in the morning upon rising and walking? I thought I read that somewhere.  I had that today. I just started on LDN two nights ago and it's written you'll experience good before bad on LDN. It may increase your symptoms before the symptoms get better. I started LDN before and stopped because I didn't see an improvement in my gut issues, but I'm back on for the fact it makes me happier.
 
I can't get in any earlier than December 8th to see a LLMD to have him read my Western Blot test, but some of you said having band 41 KD (IGG) Band Reactive  and Lyme Disease AB (IGM) WB 23 KD (IGM) Band Reactive could be possible Lyme's is that correct?
 
Thanks for answering all the differnt questions I had.

Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC. Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. Supplements: Probiotics, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat  No UC meds at this time.

Hi Linda,

December will get here before you know it and your doctor will be able to diagnose you by your WB and your symptoms. Either way, Lyme Disease is a clinical diagnosis.

We had a few here on LDN and most had good experiences with it. Jendays was one of them. I remember her saying that she felt better and that it even helped her allergies. I can't remember the others who were on it.

I say, if it makes you feel happier, then go for it.

Btw, sore heals or feet can be a Bartonella symptom.

Thanks for the reponse. I have another question, I don't know what clinical dx means.  Now on my WB test it say under MYCOPLASMA PNEUMONIAE 2.96H it's out of range and the infor underneth says this:
A POSITIVE RESULT INDICATES THAT THE PAITENT HAS ANTIBODY TO MYCOPLASMA. IT DOES NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN AN ACTIVE OR PAST INFECTION. THE CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS MUST BE INTERPRETED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE CLINCIAL SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF PATIENT.
 
What does this mean please in layman terms. I remember when all this started it felt like bugs crawling in my gut, and when I would sleep my hands would make a first in my sleep and I would be in pain when I awoke. I really felt like something was in my nervous system. Panic attacks, nerve problem, gut problems, colon inflammation, depression are my main symptoms. Every time I would take antibiotic for two weeks, I felt a little better, the first couple of days and then it would just tear up my gut and colon and I wouldn't get any better. It seems though it was killing something a little bit at a time. I'm not nervous as I was at all, I just have a terrible gut/colon/diarreah problem. I know yeast too is problem.
 
Thank you
