My neuro said I didn't have lyme (she was referring to the WB with two hits) and was pretty sure I had MS. I met with an LLMD and he said I definitely had lyme. The neuro sent me for a lumbar puncture and my LLMD asked me to get an extra tube of fluid to take to a lab that specializes in lyme testing. Well, they found lyme in my spinal fluid, along with bebasia. I had Bell's Palsy 16 years ago and I was diagonosed with two odd allergies 25 years ago (allergic to cold and pressure). So, my LLMD said that I've had lyme for at least 16 years, possibly longer.
Treatment- I'm taking two oral antibiotics for 60 days- Omnicef 600 mg daily and probenecid 1000 mg daily. They are inserting a PICC line next week.
My body is deteriorating very quickly. Sun-sensativity started in April 2009. Left-side numb in August 2009. For last two weeks, my right-arm has strange vibrating sensations, so much so, that I jump when it happens. The right-arm issue is definitely connected to my neck- when I bend my neck forward, my entire right-arm tingles. Also, my memory is deteriorating. I forgot about a funeral on Thursday for a friend from HS that I found out about on Monday. I didn't write it down, but when I got on FB on Friday, I realized I missed it. Just things like that- forgetting major events.
Anyone know how long before the anti-biotics will improve the symptoms?
