Hi,
My name is Maya and I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. I was originally diagnosed in September 2009, took medication, but due to stomach issues, apparently I was not able to digest it. my doctor rechecked and now my Lyme is Chronic. I am unable to digest any tablets, pills, and other formed medications due to complications of colon removal surgery 2 years ago. I had liquid Vibromicin, but apparently it did not work. My symptoms gotten worse, and now it is effecting my muscles, bones, and even neurologically. I am so sick and fatigued, that I can only go to school and back home. I am in college. I am still waiting for the Lyme disease specialist to get back to me and I will be having IV treatments for it. I was wondering if there are any side effects from these treatments. I really appreciate this help. I am so glad that I have found this site.
Thank you all for everything.
Maya

Hi Maya,

I also had a difficult time with oral antibiotics when I completing my doxycycline treatment. After showing no improvement after the doxy, i was put on IV-Rocephin for 30 days. I experienced no stomach problems with the IV-picc line and had no side effects. I started to show some improvement from my symptoms after about three weeks. Good luck with your treatment.

One side effect of IV abx can be gallbladder issues. If your Dr. goes the IV route, make sure you are taking something to help protect your gallbladder!

I was on Rochephrin and my only side effect was migranes, worse than the normal ones, and yeast infections.

thanks all for the help. I am seeing a Lyme clinic doctor on April 2, but have to wait for any treatment, due to school issues. I am so glad and thankful for the help. I will keep you all updated.

I feel so badly for you.  Until you can get proper treatmet... detox like crazy.  If you can get into a Far InFared Suana and following detoxing food recipies, you should begin to feel some relief. You are in my prayers.
