Thank you for the reply. That only lasted a day or two. Now I am having increased muscle weakness and fatigue like I have so many times in the past when I thought I had Chronic Fatigue. I'm thinking this is my 4-5 week mark and that the disease is in its replication phase.
It's just a bummer that I don't feel any better after feeling bad already on these drugs before this part hit. I can't tell if I'm herxing or what. But I'm definitely dizzy and having weird head tension/headaches. Oddly enough right before I got that fever I was having bad sinus problems for a few days and now they're totally gone. Last time my bedridden fatigue lasted almost 2 weeks. It started around May 7th or 8th. So I guess I'm right on time for it. I just wish there was something I could take for the fatigue.
I've been taking vitamins, B12 injections, Burbur, I'm sober for the first time in years, trying to eat healthy but being sober makes me crave sugar. I'm going to try acupuncture this week. This mepron gives me weird vision issues. I feel like I'm going to pass out or something. Like I have low blood sugar all the time. I don't have the traditional night sweats that is seen in Babesia. I also don't have the joint pain seen in Lyme. But I am noticing that the last time this happened I had lower back pain as I was getting weaker and I am noticing it now as well. Maybe this is the start of the joint pain in my Lyme disease. I think my Dr is trying to treat the Babesia first but I wish I could throw something else in the mix to help fight the Lyme too So I can maybe feel better.
My psych told me to bump my Zoloft from 50 to 100mg that it would help with the bad anxiety and depression I've been experiencing on these meds. Thanks for the words. I'm trying so hard to not move back home and give up my dreams but everyday it seems more and more like I should. At least if I die fighting this I will be with people I love.
One somewhat encouraging thing is that my normal Dr looked over my recent bloodwork and I had just told him about
my diagnosis. He said that my immune function and adrenal function looked good. He said in many people that have had the disease chronically that these numbers had already dropped. I sure don't feel like that physically. I feel as low as I ever have. But I guess that is a plus. We're estimating I've had the disease for 2 to 3 years.
