Hey guys been having a hard time. Been sick since I was 12, 9 years now. Horrible PAIN pain pain. exaustion dizziness for so long now last year had a stomach virus stomach nver the same. now i get nausea and horrible GERD all the time have lost 60 pounds and have malnutrition and mal absorbtion. I have taken everything from biaxon zithromax to having a PICC line for 7 months and bicillin injections. A few months ago took ceftin and zithromax and mepron thought I was getting better then started getting really bad again. Doc changed it to omnicef mepron and zithromax have been feeling even worse doc says Im herxing says its good. So much pain its horrible getting like isolated feeling having kind of like lyme rage u justg get soooo angry ya know? i have faith. i know that we all will be okay. but in the mean time are there any support groups like in person around? also is there anything i can tell my doc to give me or any tricks you guys know for the nausea and pain? This really wears on me. Especially now that my friends are all getting ready to go back to college and I still here with this Lyme. I have hydrocodone I take for the pain and tramadol also ativan for these horrible heart palpations i get. So scary. Honestly, I get scared to go to sleep at night to be woken up from pain or nausea. Sometimes I dont go to bed until like 4 5 or 6 am. Im tired man, tired of being the only person my age whose sick. I hate crying at night because I feel so sick. God please help me. This Lyme sucks does it not? I mean does anyone have any suggestions like is this herxing supposed to last so long? like do you think it could be lasting so long be cause I have been sick for so long and was misdiagnosed and not treated for years? and maybe some good antibiotc combos? any tricks for pain or anything would be soo greatly appreciated. Thanks you guys God Bless You! -Sandy

So very sorry for all the pain and misery you are going through. It really sounds like your body is loaded with toxins. The heart palpitations could be a sign of ammonia in your body (that's what I had). What are you doing for detoxing? I just got done doing a 20 minute hydrogen peroxide, epsom salt and grated ginger detox bath and feel great. I decided to check the forum one more time before hitting the sack. Your symptoms really do sound like toxins and you really do need to detoxify your body as soon as you can.

Have you read this article about lyme toxins causing us to have really miserable symptoms like the ones you are describing?;col1

Doing a detox bath isn't a "cure all" but it will sure help you in reducing the toxins in your body that I believe may be causing a lot of your symptoms. If you have these ingredients in the house why not go sit in the tub for 20 minutes and let your body detoxify? If you don't have the stuff to do it tonight, tomorrow go to Walmart, or somewhere like that, and get some epsom salt, hydrogen peroxide and fresh ginger (grate it up) and soak for 20 minutes. Be sure to dry brush your skin first before taking the bath.

If you don't have the detox recipe you can find it on the front of the Lyme forum on top "New to Lyme---Start Here". Denise posted the recipe there. I just got done with the bath (I do three a week) and I'm telling you it felt so good and I'm so ready for a good night's sleep. The first bath or two may not do anything dramatic for you, but as you continue to take them you will gradually start feeling better as you rid your body from those miserable toxins.

What are you doing now to detoxify all the poisons from the abx out of your liver and organs? Are you taking Milk Thistle? That's good for liver support and really important to take when on the kind of powerful abx you're on now. Keep in mind, it's not always a "herx" that you are experiencing. Those abx you are taking have some potentially serious side effects. Look up the side effects on or . Not everything you experience while on abx can be contributed to a herx. You need to make sure you aren't suffering from the side effects of the drugs you are taking. If you are, then it might be good to stop taking them for awhile so your body can take a break from the abx. If it's not that, then like I said, it could very well be the toxins that are making you feel so miserable.

I wish I had more to offer you but I really believe your body is overloaded with toxins and the sooner you start detoxifying your body the sooner you will get some relief. In the mean time, I'm saying a prayer for you right now to get a good night's sleep and that you will experience the peace of God's presence upon you.

Let us know how you are doing in the morning. Feel free to email me if you'd like.

God night and God bless!

I agree with GWB. You are most likely dealing with toxins & your body is not able of riding itself of all of those toxins without help.

Hi. I'm so sorry you are hurting. If you want to find a local support group, try googling Lyme Disease Support Groups and your city. I found quite a few in my area. It really helps, I think, to get together with others who are sharing your experience. Best of luck to you.

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

Hey sandy, just wanna let you know I feel your pain!! I'm 21 and my last tick bite was when I was 11 or 12. So you're not the only one feeling like they're missing out on their best years! I also had malnutrition and malabsorption but it got better with antibiotics. I use milk thistle tea to stop nausea and give me an appetite.

Wish you the best!

I have a portable sauna, bought it from e-bay for about $185. It really helps with pain and detoxing.

I just wanted to tell you to hang in there...what else is there really to say?!?! :( I feel your pain and can relate SOOOOO much. It makes my head spin just to read your post... I have the same anger about what's happened to me, desperation from the intense pain, and often just feel like I can't do this anymore...

I just found this forum tonight and I'm hoping to network with some others with Lyme. I'd be more than happy to talk more with you...
