Okay so as many of you know, I have questioned my clinical dx since I got it. Just wanted to share that my muscle twitching has reduced by 90% (I literally had thousands all over daily, my eye would even get kinda stuck in a twitch as you could HEAR it twitch), my joint cracking has gotten 75% better, I have not had as bad vibrating feelings in my foot (some but not bad). The only thing I seem to have is fatigue and nerve pains but the pains are not as bad. SO maybe I REALLY do have lyme and the meds are working though I have only been on doxy 1 month and zith 2 wks. OR maybe all the supplements I am taking (mag, fish oil, zinc, gluco) are all helping. Or maybe it is just somethign totally different. I dont know, as long as I continue to feel btr that is all that matters.
Just wanted to share!

Wow.  That is awesome king.  1-2 months of antibiotics and you are on your way.  I've been on for six months.  Maybe the flagyl is the key.  I start that this week.  Great update, keep it up.

I am having twitching all over. I was just wondering if you could see them when you had them? I will look at my foot and can see it twicthing and doesnt seem to stop. I do twitch in my legs, calves, arms, back etc, but mostly in my arches of feet. I have been taking Mag for 2 weeks, but doesnt seem to be slowing it down. I am scared now that I have ALS. Went to Neuro earlier in Aug clean MRI b/c I was worried about MS with tingling/vertigo/twithing. Since then I have had heartburn that stayed for 2 weeks and gone, numb toes, weird finger sensations, and thigh pain. Now my arms and legs just feek fatigue if I do the slightest things. I too had clean ANA, Lupus, Anti 70, cbc, wbc, thryoid tests and more. I was neg on ElISA test for lyme, but I know that can be unrealable...I was just wondering if this sounded like you at all. I am 33 female too

HI king1234!! It's so good to hear great news! Congratulations! I'm very happy for you! Best wishes for continued progress towards restored health.

Hi COD, and Welcome to the forum. Your story sounds like lots of "lymers". Read the topic on the first page of this forum entitled "The Basics, Newbies, Check this out". It will get you started learning about lyme. Lyme literate medical doctors (llmds, as we call them) are often better at properly diagnosing this disease compared to most docs. For many reasons, you will find out this disease is very controversial. To save you time, money and grief, it might be wise to get recommendations about doctors to see from this forum or from your state or local lyme support group. These llmds are often good diagnosticians and can steer you in the right direction even if they do not think you have lyme. Of course, they also know the proper tests to do and which labs to use for the most accurate results.

You may also want to post a new topic and introduce yourself to the forum so more people can welcome you. Feel free to ask all the questions you like. This is a very friendly and helpful, supportive group. Best wishes in finding out what is going on with your health and for a return to good health.

Is everyone who twitches taking magnesium?

It works. Mine is reduced to very little. And the RLS is non-existent. I love mag. I was hesitant to take this monster capsule but tried it for two weeks and saw a definite improvement.

For those of you out there that clued me in on this magic supplement, I thank you!!!

I was wondering if you were feeling better.  I'm glad that you are.  I have a lot of your symptoms and was curious if your treatment was helping.  Did you ever herx at all?  I am starting treatment after Christmas and hope it helps.  Glad to hear the good news.

My twitching is not helped at all with magnesium. I have tried a few different types- oxide, citrate and glycinate.

king- Glad to hear of your progress!

Thanks for your post. Since reading it, I realized that I think the vibration feeling I used to have is gone.

I don't know when it stopped.
