Wow that is EXACTLY how i felt and have been feeling! The strange chills/hot flashes, pins and needles, spasms, ringing ears, the light! and yes my head was like i was under water!
today i actually was a bit better. less joint pain, no ringing, and some energy although i did crash a bit by 4 pm. i felt almost like me for a change, refreshing! unfortunately i have to cut prednisone to 2.5mg tomororw which should send my body right through torture again...but just a necessary evil to get off the stuff by the end of next week hopefully.
I will definatly keep it in mind that once I start to feel better, go at least 2 more months to get any remaining lyme reproduction cycles exposed to abx.
Thanks for taking the time to respond to my posts, you have been very helpful!
