Luckily I got on top of my Lyme pretty quickly--within three weeks of the bite. I didn't have a Lyme test done but based on the rash I had plus symptoms, my doc put me on Doxycycline.
Five days into my meds (she gave me a month's worth) I am SO much better! Like halfway better or more.
I know it's always possible I won't kick it, but it's just as possible that I will and I am hopeful and happy! In general I have a good immune system, I exercise and eat right, plus I am very small so maybe the meds will be more powerful inside me.
Anyway, I will keep you updated but for now I am just SO relieved.
Also, I would love any suggestions about things I can do to help the meds work better, like certain supplements etc.!
