Here is my story:
Became very ill August 2007. Had flu like symptoms, lowgrade fever, body aches, fatigue, major abdominal pain, and an irritable bowel type of thing without the diaherra. Symptoms went on for five weeks before I was tested (Western Blot) for Lyme. Had positive IGM, the beginning of Oct 2007. Started Doxy 200mg/day. Decided to see and LLMD, the more I read. LLMD continued Doxy 200/mg until end of Dec 2007. Started Ceftin 1000mg in January 2008 for one month. End of January started IV Rocephin...did Rocephin for 10 weeks. After 10 weeks did Ceftin 1000mg and Zithro 250 for 3 months and felt pretty good. Went to Mexico in July. Got food poisoning. Inceased Zithro to 500mg and things started falling about in August. Unable to get out of bed, got some hives. LLMD takes me off Zithro completely. Stayed on Ceftin and started getting sicker. Low abdominal pain, like in the lymph glands, sciatica, major overall weakness, nightsweats, insomnia. Started Mepron and did that for 2 weeks. Suffered major abdominal pain. Switched LLMD's middle of this past Oct. Took me off Ceftin, and started Omniceff 600mg/day. Put me on Malarone for four days. (four pills a day for four days only.) After a week, he decided I had Bart. Took me off Malarone and put me on Levaquin 500/mg along with the Omniceff for Lyme. Things started changing in my lower lymph area, a few bladder flare ups, pelvic flare ups, which now seem better. Today I feel terrible though. Major body aches, malaise, lightheadedness, nausea, sciatica, fatique. Also over the last month I have this twitching/itch in the bottom of my right foot, the same side as the sciatica.
I have been tested both through Igenex and Stoneybrook and only test positive for Lyme IGM. All co-infections test neg. However that said, I was on abx's each time I was tested.
I have been on Omniceff for 4 week and Levaquin for 3 weeks. Shouldn't I be feeling better than this?? This is a horrible day. Anyone have an experience like mine. I'm beginning to think I will never get better. Is this some kiind of herx?
