I read about Lyme not liking higher body temps or oxygen in the blood. Also, that one should exercise to raise body temperature and oxygen levels. Would serious exercise be something that should be done, along side with detox or would one be able to do exercise OVER detox?

If you can still exercise, go for it. What you stated is true about the bacteria not liking oxygen. I wouldn't overdue it though or you may pay for of for a few days. Maybe start by walking.

I think detoxing is still a good idea even if you are exercising.

You're right about temperature. Until the past couple of days (major heatwave going on here and probably everywhere else!) my temp has not ever reached 98 degrees. I was actually at 98.7 the other day! I've been very shaky and not feeling well, and I think being overheated is partially the cause.
Current treatment (began June 10th 2009):
Biaxin 1000mg/day, Pulsing Flagyl 500mg/day 1 Week Every Month

well, i am a quite active person. I play ice hockey, and I officiate ice hockey as well. I am in good physical shape, so if it was really good to exercise then im going out to knock some heads around.

I've had lyme for about 23 years. I played ice hockey until 2005. That year the disease really hit me hard. That is also the year that I finally got a diagnosis.

Zizziz,

Do all you can to get rid of Lyme now so you don't end up stuck on the couch and in bed all day like some of us. If you deal with it now, you have a better chance of recovering.

cajungrl, I am trying the best I can. Sometimes I can't believe what I read about other people and the things people have to go through. I'm 1/2 paranoid, 1/2 scared, and 1/2 lost. I am calling my ins co for another doctor and I am calling back my doc and asking that he up my doxy dosage and give to me for a longer duration. I have the test kit from igenix lab in CA coming this week as well. I guess that is just for testing of co-infections since my first blood work already confirmed that I have lyme, western blot of 3.2 and igm of 6.2... I mean what do those numbers mean anyways, I can't find a "chart" to match it up to, i would really love to know how bad/good those numbers are. would it be prudent for me to send the blood to ca for the coinfections testing?

I don't know. I just had the blood drawn at my doc and off it went. I guess I can ask the next doc where they send it, or I can ask if I call him again. actually i have to go see him in a bout 1 week cause he wants me too.
