I have very bad stomach pain, and I will have to start my ABs treatment asap.
I don't know what can I do with my stomach pain. I know it will be worse from ABs.
I take many supplement, but those are capsules and not pills, also I take multivit. and spirulina pray... so they shouldn't bother my stomach.
Do you have any idea what can I do?
have lyme for about 4-4.5 years. I've just got positive lyme test.

Heating pad or hot water bottle placed on the belly where the pain is can sometimes soothe and relax the muscles and reduce the pain.

Also, you might want to try a bland diet for a few days, such as the B.R.A.T. diet (Banana, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) to see if that helps calm down the stomach pain.

Make sure your doctor knows about your pain, too.

Take care,

Meds:  Zofran, Pulmicort, IV Ceftazidime, Heparin (to flush PICC line), Claritin, Colloidal Silver (used topically), probiotics, homeopathy.

Is the pain actually in your stomach (as opposed to in your intestine or other abdominal muscles)? I'm asking because burning stomach pain is one sign of a stomach ulcer. I just had one recently, and it is really painful. Antibiotics can make this much worse, so you might want to rule that out before you start the antibiotics. If you google stomach ulcer, you'll see lists of all the symptoms.
Lyme and co-infections since approximately 2002. Diagnosed in 2005. Abx for two years straight, then on and off for another year. Off abx since fall 2008 and feeling great (lyme-wise)! Also diagnosed with lymphomatoid papulosis and slightly low thyroid function.
