I know my panic/anxiety has been extremely bad lately - and can't seem to get it under control even on meds, but I have had this symptom when my Lyme first started before my PICC and it has come back so I am wondering if it is Lyme related also. I will feel like my insides are shaking so bad (sometimes it will in turn make my outsides shake). This will cause me to become nervous, but sometimes I can be calm and just sitting around and bam I will start to feel all shaky inside - especially at night when I get tired (this has always been when my symptoms get worse).

Anyone else ever had this problem or anything like it? I can remember when I first got sick a few years ago before any treatment shaking so bad inside and out that my husband would hold me until I could get to sleep. This shaking is not as physical and is more "internal" usually, but it still feels HORRIBLE and I feel like I am going mad when it happens!

Thanks all!

Blessings,
Leah

Ashley, so sorry for the symptoms you are experiencing. Yes, I too have experienced this and it isn't pleasant to say the least. Haven't had this for awhile but I know what you are talking about. It definitely sounds lyme related to me.

Are you on abx now and if so what are you taking? Have you tried Xanax or something similar to calm you down?

I am currently not on any abx right now (as my last doc said we were "out of options" due to all the side effects I was experiencing). I had tried a "natural" type doc but didn't have much luck there either. I do have Xanax (a very low dose) and it will sometimes help, but it just is a really horrible symptoms that makes you feel like you are going crazy. Not sure whether just to treat the anxiety or try to find someone who will treat the Lyme - I am not sure I want to go back on antibiotics again - after 2 years (losing my gallbladder, esophagitis, IBS, lymphocytic colitis, some kidney problems) I just don't know if I am ready to go try antibiotics again.

Thank you for your reply. Blessings to all.

Leah, I was in the same situation you are in not long ago. My LLMD gave up on me because I couldn't do abx anymore. I was nearly dying back in December and planning my funeral. You may know that already if you've read my thread here http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=1690780&p=1

You need to treat both the anxiety and the Lyme, not just one or the other. If you need Xanax to help you get through the anxiety, by all means use it. However, you MUST treat your lyme disease, because if you don't, it isn't going to leave your body on it's own. If fact, it's going to multiply and do it's best to bring you down. Sorry to be so blunt, but I know from personal experience, I've been there. I stopped taking abx and decided to just go on with my life and "ignore" this disease for several months last year. You can't ignore it, it will destroy your life if you aren't treating it in some fashion.

I understand you didn't have much luck with a "natural" type doctor. I went to three natural type doctors myself before finding Dr. Jernigan and didn't have any luck either. You have to go to someone who KNOWS how to treat Lyme disease naturally with homeopathic remedies along with herbal/botanical remedies, supplements and specialized treatments and therapies. Did you go to a lyme literate natural doctor? If not, then there was no possible way he/she could have treated you successfully. Lyme disease can't just be treated with few supplements and chiropractic adjustments, etc. You need to be treated by someone who has years of knowledge and experience in treating this disease.

Dr. Jernigan of the Hansa Center is world renowned for treating Lyme disease. He wrote the book, "Beating Lyme Disease" (second edition) http://www.hansacenter.com/beating_lyme_disease.php . He had lyme disease at one time, his daughter had West Nile Virus and was partially paralyzed from it for a time. Dr. Jernigan knows this disease inside and out. He invented a test that is far more advanced than almost any test you can get from blood tests. Read about it here: http://www.hansacenter.com/brs.php . From his website he says,

From Dr. Jernigan's website: "BRS enables the doctor to determine highly specific information – not only the presence of a pathology, but its degree of priority for healing in the patient's body."

Dr. Jernigan has remedies that he makes to fit your needs. He's invented over 30 different natural medicines to treat lyme and other chronic diseases. He knows, not only how to treat lyme disease, but he knows the importance of detoxifying the body while treating the disease. He says in his book that, "Lyme toxins the primary cause of your symptoms". Most LLMD's don't even know that!

I went to one of the top LLMD's in the country and he never gave me anything to detoxify my body from all the poisons (abx) I was taking. My second LLMD also never told me about detoxifying my body. No wonder I was so sick back in December. In all the five years I was on abx treatment I never detoxified. That's horrible for Lyme patients, and like Dr. Jernigan says, that's the primary cause of our symptoms--toxins in our bodies.

I encourage you to not give up on natural medicine. If you're willing to go that route, like I did, then do it with someone who has the knowledge, experience and expertise that Dr. Jernigan has. Either that, or find another LLMD who treats with abx and knows how to detox. I suspect that isn't going to help you since your last LLMD said that he was out of options for you.

From what you've shared, it seems you are like me--very sensitive to abx. Some people are, my wife did fine with abx but I did horrible with them. I strongly encourage you to contact the Hansa Center and get on a natural protocol from a doctor who will not just treat your disease, but help your body to start working it a way that it can fight the disease on it's own rather than depending on abx to do it for you. Dr. Jernigan will give you specific frequency matched remedies that will help your body to build it's immune system up, while at the same time, detoxify your body of the poisons that are making you so sick.

I know it seems as if I'm "promoting" the Hansa Center, or Dr. Jernigan, how can I not? After being near death in December, to finally being able to feel good in January, have energy, and being able to work almost every day-- that's something I couldn't do before. I feel I have an obligation to tell others about this protocol, because it works! Like I said, I had pretty much lost all hope to live. I was planning my funeral back in December, today I wake up looking forward to living again instead of praying the night before that I not wake up to another day of misery.

Leah, I believe you can get better but you need to make a decision about what you're going to do. Doing nothing isn't going to get you there. I don't see where you've mentioned what your plan is to get better, all I see is that you are suffering and frustrated and discouraged where you are now. I know how that feels, it's a miserable place to be. But if I had stayed there and done nothing, rather than make a decision to do something, I'd be six feet under right now, leaving behind a grieving widow, two grown sons and their beautiful wives, and three precious grandkids with another one on the way.

Denise, known as Deejavu, on this forum, got well using the Jernigan protocol, others have gotten well using this protocol, I'm getting well on it, there's no reason why you can't get better on it too. Regardless what protocol you go on, don't just do nothing. Don't give up, keep moving forward and keep fighting this dastardly disease! I will help you all I can and I know others here will too.

Gary

Hi Leah,

That shaking was one of my first symptoms after beginning abx treatment. It is scary! After treating with abx and naturals, I only get it slightly when I don't get the proper sleep. I need to be in bed before I get really tired or my nervous system rebels. There is a natural supplement, GABA, that helps calm the nerves.

I second Gary's recommendation of Dr. Jernigan's protocol. I have been on it for three weeks and definitely feel better - more energy, little to no pain and more like the old me. I am off abx now and hopefully will not need them again as I'm running out of options due to bad reactions to many of the abx prescribed for lyme.

Good luck.

I am going to research this Jernigan protocol further - thank you guys so much!!! I do have a quick question - just glancing at the info - there is no way with my anxiety and family situation I can travel to the clinic - can you do the protocol from home? Can you get advice from the book or over the phone?

Thanks so much!

Blessings,
Leah

Yes, you can do the protocol from home. Deejavu has a lot of experience with this, so she'd be the one to talk to about it. Caldonia Sun is doing it now too, so talk with her and I'm sure she'd give you some feedback as well.

All you need to know about the protocol is in the book, "Beating Lyme Disease" which you can purchase at the link in my post above. I doubt you'll need to call his office for questions since it's all in the book, plus there's few of us here who have experience with it. We can try to answer any questions you have and if we don't have the answers, or if the answers aren't in the book, you can call the Hansa Center and I'm sure they will be glad to answer whatever questions that aren't already answered in his book.

Dr. Jernigan does phone consultations at a very reasonable fee. If you need to spend some time with him getting some advice this could be a good way to go too. If it's just a quick question or two about the protocol they won't charge you to answer a question or two, but for longer consultations (which is a good idea to have on occasion) they charge a small fee for that.

I suggest you read the bath detox thread that Deejavu posted here and get started on this as soon as possible. It's amazing how much better you'll feel when you start detoxing:

Hi Leah,

Just wanted to add that I use a portable FIR sauna for detoxing.

I did not have a PICC, but did IV rocephin treatments twice a week. They helped a lot and I'm glad I did them.

I can't take all the different abx that are usually prescribed for lyme, so after doing the IV and six months of oral ceftin, I switched to naturals. First I did the Buhner herbal protocol and have now switched to Dr. Jernigan's protocol. I have been on it about a month and I feel good. I have almost no pain and definitely more energy. I would recommend trying it. I hope to be on it for six months; that is what Jernigan recommends.

Blessings to you and I hope you find something that works for you.

I believe it's the lyme bacteria in the central nervous system that causes the buzzing. You may be herxing, if it was an abx day. But I would tell the doc; he may have a different opinion.

And of yes, it is very freaky!!
