Hello :-D

The last time i posted i was waiting for my llmd appointment. Well i have had that and he thinks it is quite possible that i have picked up lymes.

He has started me on 200mg of doxycycine for a months and to see how i go on this.

My llmd was really nice and has been one of the only people to take me seriously and throb me off with anxiety!

What i was wondering was will i notice a difference in my symptoms in this time frame?

Also in the past week iv noticed the tingling and numbness i expeirince in my forehead seems to of spread and im now getting it in the arms and hands. I have been cleared by a nerou but im still concerned about this and incase it aint lymes :-(

Iv got to go back after i finished the 1 months course.

I think your LLMD sounds like a reasonable doctor. He's not piling a lot on or mixing it up. This can make you sicker sometimes! The cure being worse than the disease. So, you may not be in very bad shape at all, so try not to worry. It makes things worse. 200mgs may not sound like much, but may be all you can tolerate based on your size, but it will most likely cause a herx reaction -- photosensitivity, air hunger, are a few things frequently reported.

Stick w/ this doctor! Re. the neuro appointment, and the spreading of symptoms, one can never rule anything out...And it's smart not to.

Sorry about the odd sensations in your forehead. I can relate! Hope this doxy works on that too. GOOD LUCK!!! Be positive.
