By the way, my girlfriend has many of the symptoms you mention in your blog: whole body hurts, including the bottoms of her feet, as well as psychological problems (irritability, anger, crying). Like you, her doctor suspects she's been infected for years, but possibly got re-infected a few years ago and was initially diagnosed in 2007. She did ceftriaxone via a PICC line for a month, got better for a while and relapsed. Last month she started azithromycin and has been herxing like crazy. The doctor plans to eventally add rifampin and minocycline. It will be a total of 9 months of treatment. It has taked a huge physical and emotional toll on her, not to mention our relationship.
