My boyfriend originally got Lyme for the first time at 14, had a bulls eye, 30 days doxy oral and was thought that it had gone away, about 2 1/2 yrs ago he started getting terrible headaches every day among many other things n the search for a diagnosis started, in novemeber after many hospital stays, he was finally diagnosed with lyme when his blood and spinal fluid came back positive twice. he has been on 30 days IV rocephin, doxy and now is on ceftian. however, last week he began to loose eyesight in one of his eyes, we brought him to the hospital and they said he had optic neuritis, basically inflammation of the optic nerve, which may sometimes be the 1st symptom of MS. of course the neuroligists were all over the idea of MS, as they always are. and refused to send in an ID lyme dr, becuase " theyd just say it was lyme"...uhh yeh!
as far as we know, he has no co infections, and the antibiotics have helped him tremendously compared to the way he was not so long ago....
its just so controversial, this lyme ms back and forth. but who do you listen to? the lyme dr that tells u, u have lyme or the ms dr that tells u u may have ms?
