been missing for a while but work got crazy out of control, but heres my treatment for now (for those interested).
a) i tested negative for all co-infections, but sleepdisorder/sweaty nights are symptoms of bartnella i continue to have. but my doc decided to wait and watch for 1 month for this one. (so i continue to CEFTIN 1k DAILY for another month)
b) i also took a b12 shot. have 3 more shorts to go for this one. also taking vita d orally (5k ui daily). my vita d is seriously deficient. got 5 on the test, when the normal level range is 32-100. also urged to take more water.
c) they also found some candida presence in my body. so in addition of probiotics i am taking digestive aid pleo fort.
d) they also found lots of allergies in my body right now (soybean, cheese, cottage cheese, mushroom olives, organes etc etc), you talk about it and i got it. and me being vegetarian.. i am not sure how ill even eat anymore. i dont understand how and why i have to stop these things when i am on lyme. this makes no sense. i was well and its unfair to stop all this food. i am already doing enough by cutting sugar and excessive starchy and gluten products. THIS PART I AM VERY MAD about!
e) i had headaches due to ceftin, so now i am also on detoxifying liver gels, and then detoxying kidney etc. but there is an order to it, currently only on liver.
f) also taking zen to help sleep (only if needed)
g) taking few more supplements (like 10 others) if anyone interested i'd put it for you, and why i am taking that.
now as for as the disease progress:
a) my joint inflammation has gone down, but not gone away
b) my knee pain is reduced (able to walk, and go down/up the steps), but there is constant hotness nad pain still and mild pain showing in left knee too now (cross fingers hopefully its herx).
c) my itching has gone away
d) my muscle twiches have reduced from 8 to 4
e) my muscle pain (mostly legs/thighs) has increased from 4 to 7
f) i've started to have pain in fingers and feet now much more than i had before the medicine.
g) continue to have night sweats, and mild sleep disorder
h) not really tired or fatigued, but VERY SLEEPY during day (cuz of lack of good night's slee)
lastly i am love. *i think*. haha. more update on this later.
REMEMBER REMEMBER REMEMBER (i am told - but all of you already know this): it's very important to separate - side effects, causes, and the symptoms during the treatment so each can be addressed.
I am looking for suggestion/help on any/all of the above. Thanks all. you can even write to me, (pepphell and the google mail)
