extreme fatigue lately and then my good friends husband died in a house fire while dealing with his dad's estate who had died 2 weeks previously. Somehow, my lyme issues weren't all that horrible anymore.
Hoping, how's your breathing doing? What's your LLMD say? The plaquenil has been good for me so far. It helps the Biaxin work better. I'v been on it for 4 months now and just had my first eye exam. It was fine. Plaquenil can give retinal issues, but my eye doc said he's more worried about
the Lyme effects on the eye than the Plaq. I would go ahead and start the Plaq and get an eye exam if you've had retinal problems in the past. The more I'm reading about
the co-infections the more it's sounding like we all have to have them!! Talk to your LLmd about
it. My co-infection panel from IGenX was negative but I have bart, bab and ehrl symptoms and are now being treated for them.
Nefferdun - how was your appointment?
My eye doctor gave me some "soothe" samples and they work pretty good.
I've had pain in my shin's before too. It is always in the lower outside area between the bone and the calf muscle. Very wierd, ain't it?
Minerals - I'm so sorry to hear about
the reaction you had to Plaquenil!!!!! I can only imagine what you must have gone through. Are you skeptical about
all meds you start now? I pray your skin is healthy now! wow. Once again, I'm sorry you had to go through that. Like Lyme doesn't suck enough. Man, are we going to be super hero's after this is over or what? I know you should be!
hugs to all - Lisa
