I'm 29 and have had lyme for at least over a year, not exactly sure.
I had initially begun naturopathic treatment options and stuck to each like clockwork, but it wasn't working. I finally began amoxicillan and at first it felt like it was working, but b/c I cannot clear toxins hardly at all(according to my test results and LL PCP) I soon had issues coming back.
I am trying to keep this short.
Currently I am still on antibiotics and for the second time am trying 1/2 a scoop of Cholestyramine powder before my largest meal 1x/day.
I've been having maybe two good days each week-my definition of "good" is a higher functioning day and or a higher quality of life for any given "good" days.
Last time I began the powder I had a major overload of toxins b/c I could keep up with the "clearing" process, so I had to stop.
Now that I am on it again I know(and I'm not being pessimistic here just logical) that I will feel like death soon.
I already am startling Very easily, hearing things, usually hearing things maybe much louder than they are or hearing a distorted version of any sound.
Slowed thought process, or my thoughts are going so fast that I can hardly keep up and therefore become slowed down mentally and confused all over again.
I will see freakish things when I close my eyes, short term memory loss, random shooting pains, scalp or thigh tingling, palpitations, shortness of breath even upon small actions, low stamina, overall fatigue, random bouts of drowsiness, sinus pressure, increased floaters, low grade fevers, head feels detached, neck discomfort, anxiety and paranoia-I keep feeling like my roomates/best friend, parents are fed up with me or dislike me or will reject me. I am afraid I am a hypochondriac sometimes and that I am losing it, restless forearms.
Sorry this is long with the symptoms but if I don't list them now, I feel like I won't be able to get as much support as possible.
Can anyone relate to any of this, any advice? Know anyone going through this type of ordeal and what they've done to relieve symptoms?
Thanks for reading this and responding,
