My 16 yr. old daughter was diagnosed with Lyme in Sept. 08 and Babesia duncani and Babesia microti in Nov. 08. She hasn't walked on her own since July 08.
Currently she is taking: Zithromax 250 mg 2x/day, Plaquenil 200 mg 1/2 pill 2x/day, Mepron 750 mg 1 tsp 2x/day, and Artemisinin 200 mg 2x/day.
She still has bad headaches, light sensitivity, joint pain, hair loss, sleeplessness, etc., although she started taking the Zithromax and Plaquenil in Oct. 08.
Has anyone experienced not walking -- loss of strength in lower body? If so, have you regained your ability to walk? She has treated with Dr. Jones in New Haven, Connecticut, and he said she will walk again and be pain free, but it will take at least six months of treatment, maybe up to a year.
Just looking for some encouragement until we get there. Thank you.
