Hi, Going back many years ago, I had what I would call an irritable bladder. I would have to go all the time (3 or more times at night too). This was before I was diagnosed with Lyme. I felt like I couldn't empty my bladder. Drugs didn't help with the frequency (I don't remember the name of the drug). I have given up pop and anything with artificial sweetners as they seem to irritate my bladder. I drink water with 1/2 a squeezed lemon sweetened with Stevia instead of pop. It's not as bad as it was, but I still have to go alot. I seem to be able to empty my bladder better than I used to.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol
