Thank you, I hope there's an approach that will work for me, because I feel so awfully discouraged right now.
Am glad to hear I am not the only who has to take a break from the abx. Everyone seems to brave it and push on through, and I just can't with the heart stuff.
Yes, detoxing, chlorocaps, drinking green water, drinking hot water with fresh ginger in it. LLMD told me not to do detox baths, because of the heart.
I tried them anyway, and found they did not make me feel any better. Not sure if it was the Epsom Salts or the Diflucan or the cold weather, but I got very itchy, all over.
I've remedied that by switching to showers and using simple cheap aqueous cream instead of soap.
I had an EKG, and my house doc listens to my heart whenever I go to her for the simple, paid-for-by-insurance, regular bloodtests to check liver & iron and stuff. (LLMD is very far away, house doc is fortunately being cooperative). I asked LLMD about a full heart-check-up and he doesn't think I need one.
I've considered going to a cardiologist for anyway, but I am so sick of doctors, having been to neurologists, gastro-enterologists, infectious disease doctor, gynocologist, etc... I don't know if I can face yet another doc, and yet another odd reaction when I a) tell them about Lyme b) getting "the lecture" when I have to reveal that I am going to an LLMD in another country...
I've been noodling on it (so sick of noodling, just wish I could take my pills and get better), and I can link the clarithro to the racing heart, that is better since I stopped taking it, but I still have some skipping, which I am suspecting more & more has to do with low ferritin levels.
Waiting for the LLMD to come back from his vacation. I know, what's a week here and there in the greater scheme of things, but for me it feels like another week lost of my life.
I'm getting rib vibrations again and more sessions of skipping heart, esp at night. I generally feel worse now than I did when I started treatment in October.
thanks for trying to help :) (wistful smile)
