What is it? My husband had the lymes rash and was treated in Sept. 2007. He recently had surgery on his knee in Oct. 2008. He became very stiff, sore, achy, in his shoulders, neck, etc just days after that surgery. In January 2009 he went for tests and mentioned to the doctor he had Lymes a year before. The doctor then tested, said he was positive for Lymes, and he has had doxy about
3 weeks and ceftin (I think it was) for about
30 days. He feels he is better than what he was a few months ago, but then feels like it may be coming back because he is having some symptoms he remembers from before. He is obsessed 24/7 with Lymes and has read and listened to others stories (mainly the ones that are not improving). He goes over and over again analyzing it. He has an appt. scheduled with a Llmd on Tuesday. Today, he was starting to get his medical papers together and asked me some questions about
it, I tried to show him, he asked again and I said I told him already, and started to look again for the information. He then went out of the room slammed down a chair, slammed the bedroom door, came back out picked up a large potted plant and through it toward me sitting on the couch, he then picked up the paperwork and through that and stormed off. My heart was racing and I ran outside and called law enforcement. They arrived and went in and talked with him. They then came outside and brought me in. I saw a hole in the wall where the plant hit, a broken lamp, stuff thrown out of the closet in the bedroom and bathroom. I broke down and cried. Law enforcement asked him to leave for the night...relief! They were sympathetic to him and his condition and he must have explained his situation and the frustration he was feeling in getting good medical help and all the unknowns. In law enforcements talking with him, he just feels this was anxiety rather than anger...but when he was hollering and throwing things around, he had the look of anger in him to me. I have seen him escalating over time with this. What do you think? I certainly am anxious and panicy myself right now.
