Hello -- just want to tell you all I'm still reading as many of your posts as I can, and my thoughts and prayers are still going out to everyone, I just haven't been able to respond -- been ill (tho still not as sick as most of you!) and have had very little time. So I won't blame anyone for not responding here. I do want to say that I am deeply and sincerely sorry for the serious issues many of you are dealing with and my prayers are with you.
Anyway, I've had a dental emergency and had oral surgery this morning. (and the surgeon was ruthless). He gave me 21 500 mg pills of amox. Note: I did not appear to have an infection, I believe he was covering his butt for all the mutilation and the fact that he neglected to call the pharmacy for my pre-med, which I need for mitral valve prolapse.
Question: is there by any chance anything useful I can do w/ this? Does Lyme react at all to Amox and do I have enough to try to cause a herx, simply for the purpose of aiding in my diagnosis? (will see LLMD the week after next)
And/OR: I have read in a couple of pieces that taking abx for a short period and then stopping, can aid in a positive WB test, if the person has Lyme. I have also read you MUST be abx free before a WB test. Which is more apt to be correct?
Any chance that if I take this according to the directions, for a week and then am done, that it will help or hinder an accurate test?
