Wow!! You mean both of you are going through the same thing with stomach & intestinal issues?? So, I'm not so alone!!!
Protonix is a really, really good med, but last time I checked (which was a while ago) it's pretty expensive.
I also bloat easily still, but mine is because of bowel issues. I deal with a lot with constip., & of
course, yeast infection issues. Have either of you been to Melissa Kaplain's site? She has some very valuable info there.
I also deal with a lot of numbness (Incl. facial numbness) all over my body. Mine is from neuropathy & TBI's. Some of my meds are to deal witht his specifically, although I only get a little relief. =(
I will soon be going with the homeopathhic route. Even after 1 full yr of high dose abx, I have had very little success, and some pretty scary herxes during that time. I actually started with very real seizures.Fortunately, the were only minor seizures. That was the main reason for my decision to quit the abx.
"Conditions": Lyme Disease (neuro, gastro, bone, brain, muscle, hearing involved), STARI, RMSF, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Lyme Arthritis, Neuro LD, FM, Chronic/acute EBV, IBS-C, Diverticulosis (& "itis") & now Lyme arthritis (?).
