Has anyone had a recurrence of symptoms brought on solely by stress? How did you treat and how long did it last?

It depends on what you mean by stress. Stress for me usually includes losing sleep, and that's one of the worst things for me. I have a direct correlation between the amount of sleep that I get and how active my infections are.

Definitely agree with the sleep thing. Travel really brings out the bugs, too. I'm using ADP, it's a concentrated extract of oregano, you'll need your llmd to get it. I take it for a month,. then off for a month. The die off is horrific, but my goodness, it works.

The answer to your question is YES. I had a relapse after being well for over 3 years and considered myself cured. I went through a horrible break-up and within a few months my symptoms were back. I treated it the same way I did the first time around with abx and exercise. I did get well again and had a relapse of some symptoms after having a baby 6 months after she was born. A very stressful time. I got better again and just recently went through a miscarriage and I was horribly sick for about a month after. I am doing much better again now, but for me, stress is huge for my lyme to act up. It does get better and it is really hard to avoid stress. Something I need to work on in my own life because I get stressed out way too easily.
