I started treatment in Sept. 08 . Doxy 100 2x. In Nov., added Biaxin and increased doxy to 300 daily.

Still on doxy 400 mgs daily now and biaxin 1000 mgs daily.

My neck is crunchy.

Why is Lyme getting worse?

As you know Lyme symptoms can change all the time. You can have good days and bad days treatment or no treatment it does not matter. It's a long road back, stay patient. Yesterday getting out of bed my foot poped so hard I thought it must have jumped out of the socket!

I don't think it's a sign lyme is getting worse b/c your joints are cracking more.

As time passes with more and more treatment under my belt my popping has dimished alot. I also used to think that my ankle bone popped out of my foot bone scoket it was loud and painful. Keep plugging away at killing the little buggers and you will inch your way to improvement. It may take a few months or even years, and different combos of meds but you can do it we all can.
