Does Lyme go into cyst form in everyone? If it goes into cyst form, it comes out in cycles, correct? When it comes out in cycles and you are on Abx, that is when you herx?
Also, at some point the bacteria has to be killed, correct? The continous problems are from the damage the lyme has done?
Thanks, I am still learning...
Also, I hear lots about how Lyme weakens the immune system... My kids have been sick with colds a few times as well as my husband, I have not had anything (and I am constantly hugging, kissing and sharing food with my girls) - knock on wood, right?

Your immune system may be in a state of hyper-vigilance. I didn't get many colds, etc., for a long time, but now my immune system is so weak from fighting lyme for so long now that I catch everything.

Don't know the answers to your other questions, sorry. Take care,
