Is it "normal" to feel this better, this fast?

I am almost 12 days through 21 days of Ceftin. I had a few rough days in the beginning, but the last 5-6 days, my energy level is through the roof. I can't remember how long it's been since I felt this "normal", sharp and energetic, and most of all "motivated" "Hey kids! Let's go to the park!" vs..."Mom needs to lay down...." Is this a "false" sense of recovery?? I also started 3000 IU of Vit. D3 at the same time (Vit. D was low too).
BTW, I asked my ped. to test my 7 yr old son too. He had ticks on him after the same campout in May. We had taken him to the Dr. shortly after for major fatigue and him being NQR, crying alot in school - enough that his teacher called me. She felt it was allergies. We put him on Claritin daily and he got better.....but on and off complains of his "knee" hurting, headaches...could be nothing but I feel in my gut I should test him too.
Anyway, am I really being cured??? I feel most marked symptom was extreme fatigue and serious lack of motivation, sadness, no energy. Thoughts??

The Vitamin D3 could have helped with the fatigue and energy levels. I'm glad you're feeling so good!

Iam glad that you are feeling better. I hope that it continues!! I also think it is a good idea to have your son tested. If it is lyme you want to catch it as soon as you can. Trust your gut feeling. Good luck with everything, and keep us posted.

yes - it is poss. to feel good quite quickly - I guess it could be a lot of the 'bacteria load' in your system has been eradicated - maybe all that energy is the bodies way of helping the 'die-off' to be eliminated - movement/excersise gets our systems going.

many people with lyme find a lot of benefit in regular excersise - once we get the motivation back!

hope you keep-on improving - best wishes - gorbs x

p.s. yes if I were you I would get your son tested - painful knee - is a common lyme symptom.
