VIEW IMAGEOneWearyChick:WE DO NOT KNOW how these people are now, I would sure like to find out--and that is why I have posted this! Maybe they are doing long term abx BECAUSE those people that were THOUGHT to be success stories relapsed since then?I did 3 weeks of ax and my symptoms COMPLETELY dissapeared for almost a year... Why do you think I am here? I trusted my doc that 3 wks of ax were enough... THEY WERE NOT! I have days that I can't open the bathroom door and my 5 and 6 year old are helping me! It is a very easy door to open, if your finger bones do not hurt!
Simela, I understand your frustration; you may have had a relapse, but you could also be experiencing other issues (that may or may not be lyme related) such as viral infections or hormone or nutrient deficiencies. Have you ever had your viral loads checked or your hormone and / or nutrient levels? I'm not downplaying your situation, but just want to give you another angle to look from (especially if the one you are currently using, isn't working)
And, yes, maybe this writer, Bruce Feirstein, relapsed, but maybe not. I agree with +Lyme, we are all different and individual and some do quite well on a simple (or seemingly simple) treatment plan and some do not. My belief is that we shouldn't always assume our only options for full recovery is the toughtest treatment, but that is me and this has been my own experience.
I hope you find relief however you can. I know it can be tough to be so ill with children.
