I have been clinically diagnosed with Lyme; babesiosis; barteonella.
Western  blot was negative but LLMD says I have lymes based on symptoms and previous testing to eliminate other diseases.
I have been on the protocol for about 12 days down.  Could not take the antibiotic protocol and stopped after 3 weeks.
-extremely sore and burning feet
-sore legs
-extreme fatigue
-blurred vision
-flushing of face
-sore throat
-very sore back
-lost 30 lbs -very underweight now
-poor sleep
-anxiety high
-hands get numb at night
-cold hands and feet
Any input would be appreciated.

Hi Lyme1

Welcome to the forum!

Glad to hear you were able to get a clinical diagnosis for Lyme and co-infections.

If you haven't already, have a look at our "New to Lyme?" thread at the top of the forum. It has a lot of info and good resources that will help support your journey back to wellness. Also, you might find it helpful to scan previous threads for mention of the Cowden protocol. You can use the search function located on the right hand upper corner for that.

Hope you see some improvement soon!

Hi Lymie1!
Welcome to the forum!! Did you choose the Cowden protocol, or is that the one your doc uses? The difference is that if your doc chose this, then you can follow what s/he suggests, if you are the one who chose to use Cowden, then you are much more on your own and will need more support.

There is a website just for those who are using the Cowden Protocol -

It would be a good idea for you to check it out!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, making long paragraphs very hard to read.
