Hi, and thanks for asking CajunGrl. A few days after completing just over 2 months of oral Amox (3500 mg/day), and after agonizing mental/emotional problems, I experienced much relief. The severe pain in my back, pelvic bone, and crunching stiff neck remain -- however, obviously damage was done in these that will never be repaired. However, the pain is not as constant. I have not had the inflammatory type pain, throbbing, buzzing, sore flu-like pain. I have experienced improvement, altho not complete relief, of the horrible anxiety and depression. Cognitive issues are not gone, but are usually (not always) improved.
I experienced the wonder that the Amox could have cured me. However, occasionally I feel it trying to sneak up on me. My babesia was never treated (nor suspected Bart). Maybe that is why.
I'm trying to hang on w/ Echinwhatever, megadoses of C, garlic, and all the rest until I can find an LLMD. If I ever get organized, I will set myself up some natural cures in addition to the vites. Added in some serious prayer and mental imagery. Got a Chi machine too I need to get back on.
So maybe the Amox whipped the Lyme, or maybe it went hiding -- I think we will find out. If it does come back and I can get an LLMD, I will be up for trying shots of penicillin. I agree -- this is too much like syphillis. Plus, I can handle penicillin.
Tryin to keep on movin forward..... All of you also! You all remain in my thoughts and prayers!
