Korissa, I was given a F.A.C.T. visual acuity test, you can google that to see what it looks like. My doctors staff at the time apparently didn't know how to do the test. The first time they had me do it I asked if I should wear my reading glasses, and was told no. The next time same thing, but they left the book and test in the office with me and I read it. If you normally wear glasses to read you are suppose to wear them, so I told her when she came back in and she said "Oh well we'll do it again with your glasses on". When the doc came in he looked at the results with glasses and said "It looks like the supplements are really working", I then told him that the first test was performed wrong, and so was the 2nd one until I read the instructions and told his staff I was suppose to wear my glasses. That was the last test they gave me. I don't think anyone else on the forum had ever heard of the test at that time (2007). I noticed a dramatic change in my eyesight when I turned 40, that was also when I started to have alot of symptoms re-appear (only I didn't know they were symptoms of anything). The website I found about the test didn't talk about what the results mean, it was more geared for doctors wanting to buy the test for office use.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol stopped Zhang's after 6 months symptoms returned. Started Buhner's protocol May 2009
