I was diagnosed with Lyme the end of May - beginning of June with a positive Western Blot. I was started on Doxy 100 mg twice a day for 30 days, which I finished. I'm on my second month of doxy now. After seeing the llmd I was put on Cipro along with the doxy. I seem to tolorate the Doxy well, but the Cipro makes me feel short of breath and bloated. I thought that maybe I needed to get use to taking it, but I can't tolerate the way I feel. Also, it seemed to make some of my symptoms stir up again.
I did not get blood work done for coinfections, but the llmd said based on my symptoms I have bartonella.
Also, I have developed sensitivity and allergies to some many foods and meds. I have had to add each supplement - in one a a time. I never know how I'm going to react. The doc thinks that my immune system is really weak and I need to build it back up. I agree because I have not felt like myself for some time now.
I just want to be over this once and for all.
Thanks for listening!
