brief history

june 5th flu like sympoms for 2 weeks
june 15th EM rash
june 17th DR visit 30 days doxy 500mg 2x day
july 17th NEW DR (dr c) kisco NY 30 days 500 MG amox 6x day
august 17th 30 more days amox same dosage
sept 17th 30 more days amox PLUS 12 days of zithro and 18 days of biaxin (ins issues with zithro)
oct 17th tired of taking meds feel much better but

i have alot of good days but some days my spine really hurts, i cant bend my back over, if i look down if feels like there is a chain attached from the back of my head to my lower back and it just pulls on it. i just got another foot injury like 2 months ago that I have never gotten before (these 2 being the same)

i thought if u catch it early enough u can get over it quickly. can these pains be something else other then the lyme as a left over affter effect that will take some time to heal? how long can i continue to take meds? isnt it dangerous to take abx for so long it can damage the liver or kidneys?

i only have about 5 days left of the biaxn and i really need to know weather to quit the meds or stick with it, but i wish there was a way to know if its lyme or some after effect...

oh, and drc's office said that the next step would be IV's......

Were you tested for co-infections?
