Hi, I'm new here and have had lyme since last spring, clinically dx'd in Sept but blood tested negative. My primary doctor told me it can't be lyme because she gave me 2 weeks of abx and that is all it takes. Wrong! They tested a small piece of skin with a rash on it and told me it was from a tick and that was after the 2 weeks of abx and still told me it can't be lyme. I'm fortunate to know a poor guy with severe chronic lyme who helped me to look into lyme further.
Symptoms I've had...
disseminated EM rash all over except face
stiff neck (first symptom)
migrating joint and muscle pain
burning and pain on soles of feet
strange tingles in legs
low grade fevers and chills
brain fog (my wife thinks this symptom was prior to lyme )
Took doxy for 8 weeks
now on Ceftin for 6 weeks
antihistimine to control rash
grapefruit seed extract and olive leaf extract
garlic, B-100 vitamin and multi-vitamin
sugar free and low fat diet
My symptoms have improved but it doesn't want to go away entirely.
