  Hi ya'll
 now that I know i have lymes is it possable i didnt have a bad reation to doxy, but that it was hexing? I was placed on doxy about 4 weeks ago for a bad sinus infection I had after 24hours of my first dose I would get sicj right after taken it. called my doc and told him what was going on and he told me to stop the doxy and paced me on a different anity and steirods.they seemed to help me  to get over the sinus touble.
I do know this. I am alergic to penn and many other anitys, and also sulfer.
I would also like to know if the pain ever goes away??? I am sick of being sick. everyone thinks i am faking it. I just know I would love to be able to walk my dogs again. I miss that most of all.
thank you for your time and input  is always welcomed.

Hi RottenDog.  What happened when you took Doxy?  What dose did you take and how long did you take it?

How long did you take steroids?  Please know that people who have Lyme should not take them unless it is absolutely necessary because they suppress the immune system and can make your symptoms worse.

Even if you are allergic to Penicillin and sulfur drugs, there are many other antibiotics that can treat Lyme.

It can take time, but with proper treatment you can get better.  It is very important to see a knowledgeable doctor and get tested for all the co-infections.

Sorry for all your pain! The first time I was on Doxycycline, I broke out in itchy hives and had to take Benadryl to tolerate it. This time no hives, but symptoms are not gone either. My symptoms are nothing compared to yours, though. I'll be praying for you!

Hi Ticker,

I was on doxy 100mg 1 a day, tell I just couldnt handle it no longer.took it for about a weektill i just couldnt handle it no longer. every time I took it i was running for the bathroom within 30 mins or so throwing up. think I can handle pain a lil better then thowing up, i have lived with pain most of my for the steroids it was a shot to boost the new anti they cave me for sinuses infetion i had.

See i didnt pay it much attion at first due to being told I had RA 20 years ago. at the time it was mostly in my left elbow and back, due to damage i did to them. but when i blew out my knee 2 years ago things chanced. took me almost a year to get the surgery dont on it. they also had to remove palops from the joint ball.said to be from aritus also. but in the las 2 years i have benn tested for RA many times and showed neg on all test. told me then i have aritus but they didnt know what kind. ai remeber telling my doc, leave it to me to have somthing new and strange, lord was i misstaken.

when reading some of the post in here i think i'm lucky as far as i have a clear mind so far, but then again i do have the things on my brain too. cant see very well tho, with this huge lump in my left eye( looks like brainmatter )

as for the ID close to me i havent a clue as to how much they know about lymes, I know more about it them my reg doc does. just becouse of my dog haven lymes. i live in Texas, and dont belive they see much lymes here ( helps to have trees) lol

thanks Turquise Sky for your prayers. I also want to wish the best for everyone who is living in this mightmare.
