Hey has anyone gotten well yet? Do you know someone who is totally free of Lyme and hasn't had recurring symptoms after treatment? How long has everyone's treatment been? I just want to know there's an end to this. Just wondering.

I removed my post.....as I noticed that Healing Well now takes key words you type and links you to probably whoever pays for it.
As you can see below I typed the word "d" and look how it became a link.  I don't want my posts being used to promote any particular group.

I had lyme or a lyme like illness despite over 12 doctors not being able to find something wrong.

YES - as VIOLETS said - it can take a while but there is plenty of good news stories.

It might be too soon to tell, but I am at the end of a 28 day course of IV ceftriaxone, after being on oral abx. since March 3, and I feel better overall. My energy level isn't exactly back, but I've been on abx for 3 months, so that in itself is going to take some time to recover from.

I have slight stiffness aroud my knees, and my back keeps bothering me, but I think and hope that the back issues are from falling down the steps in March. The chiropractor seemed to think so, when I was there on Thursday. I hadn't gone in between, because I didn't feel I had the stamina to tolerate an adjustment. I did have massage and Reiki done twice. My lymph nodes have been slowly getting smaller, that was worrying me, but I read that they can stay enlarged even after an infection is gone. All the other symptoms are gone. I do get scatter brained, but that was before Lyme, and didn't seem to get worse than it was prior to this.

I do plan to use herbal treatment when I am done with the abx, because I don't want to take chances. So many people need months and years of treatment. I was bitten in June 2005, and treated in late August 2005, but only with 100 mg. doxycycline bid for 10 days. I did improve and went on herbal treatment afterward for about a year and a half. I thought I was fine at that point so went of of all the herbal supplements except the multi and probiotic, and what I take for homones. Last winter I was picking up every virus that went around, which knocked my resistance down and the Lyme resurfaced. My immune system must have been able to keep it supressed and dormant all this time, so I must have been doing something right.

The ID MD who treated me does not believe in chronic Lyme and said that 28 days is enough to kill it. I have read enough to not necessarily trust that opinion, but was just glad that she was willing to treat me. I hope it is gone for good, but I plan to take even better care of myself from now on! And if I relapse again, I will be searching for whatever it takes to be well!

I know this is not the best response, but I think I'm cured from Lyme Disease and am looking for additional treatment from some residual symptoms. I'm posting here in hopes of that.

My residual symptoms are neck issues, floaters and eye problems, some fatigue, some sleep issues...bad feet too. OA here and there (but that may or may not have been the Lyme)

I'm just seeking treatment for the above list and will not be retreated for Lyme Disease unless it all comes back or things get unbearable. (Or there's a better test showing I need to continue._

Right now, I'm okay as long as I don't get too stressed. And when I do get stressed, I'm over the top pain with the neck etc. I'm very worried about this since, let's face it, life in the 21st century is stressful if anything.

At least summer is here, and things can ease up now.

Take care, be positive, be positive you will get better. And you will. Proven fact that a positive attitude about one's health can kill most anything, even cancerous cells. So what's a little lyme bacteria? You may need some antibiotics for a while...But the battle can be won. I feel like I won mine, but am still making sure but following up with the other "junk".

Gotta keep on and get treatment for the rest of the aches and pains...somehow!

I am feeling better but it is too early to say I am cured. I think I am close but I could relapse so I need to be very careful. I am using herbs because I cannot tolerate the abx any more. I treated lyme for the first year and then found out I also had bartonella. I believe the remaining symptoms were primarily bartonella related. It also affects your mind and can cause muscle twitching. Levaquin reduced those symptoms within weeks but it also left me with tendon damage and is the reason I cannot use abx any more.

ABX kills the beneficial bacteria in your body leaving you with yeast infections. Your body cannot produce vitamin K. Many of the symptoms typical of lyme and bart can be related to yeast or vitamin/mineral deficiency. ABX are toxic in long term use and it can be hard to get rid of it in your body, as in the case of levaquin which can cause tendon rupture a year after using it. I feel badly for those people who take abx for years but never fully recover. I don't know what the answer is but I am using herbs now in very high doses. It is expensive but nothing compared to the LLMD, levaquin and the damage done to me which is another road of recovery.
