Please don't play with this disease. Take it very seriously because it is very serious and if you don't take care of it early on, it may hunt you for the rest of your life! I was given 3 weeks of abx the first time I was diagnosed (last year). I trusted my PCP and never questioned him about it. My symptoms went away for a few months and then I started to have much worse symptoms including neurologic stuff and memory pbls, etc
Jefferson Hosp. recommands 4-6 weeks. Bacteria works in cycles, so in order to kill ALL of it, you will have to take abx for at least 4 weeks. Otherwise, the 2 week dose will kill some of it, but some will still be left in your body. It is much harder to get rid of it later. you have a great chance to recover 100% from it bec. you caught it early, so don't blow it. I and many others never got the rash, so we have no idea how long we were infected before starting treatement. If I knew 2 years ago what I know now, I would not be here. I relapsed within months and I am now again on abx, the pain is unbearable at times and a lot of other ugly stuff.
Tell you doc that you are still sick and ask for more abx. DEMAND TREATMENT! If he/she won't give you more, go to another doc. It will be much more costly later if you relapse with the posibility of never recovering 100%.
ALSO, listen to Trav and read the thread and everything she suggested. You will find out that beside LYME, the tick that bit you may carry other bacteria. DO NOT let this go, or you may get so sick, that this time around will be a breeze. Study the other types of diseases that may be associated with a tick bite. Treating lyme will not help you if you don't treat the other diseases that you may get from the same tick bite. Doctors are clueless when it comes to Lyme. If you can, go to an LLMD (lyme literate MD). They will look for co-infections as well as lyme. To find an LLMD in your area, Post your state and town in a new topic and someone will contact you. Everyone here is very helpful, some have been seek for decades, so welcome and let us know if we can help. Try to read the other topics similar to yours, yyou will see you are one of many people that have been misled by docs;
I would do anything to change places with you!
