Awww! Thank you all!!
I'm hanging in there! And once again, I am taken aback by all the support that is given here!! You all are just too cool!!
and I'm near tears!!
I fully expected to herx with this treatment as it definitely seems to be very effective for me. I'm so very glad that the herxing hasn't risen past the point that I feel a little like rewarmed poo
- had it, I would have reduced the amount I was taking (but thank you so much Margaret!!).
Cheetahjade, I'm so very sorry that you are herxing as well - but know that you can get through it if it's not too bad!! Detox like there's no tomorrow!!! If you simply can't detox enough and it's really making you sick, you need to lower your dosage of abx/herb and/or call your LL doc. They need to know that you are herxing badly if you do. The friends that detox together, stay together????
Also try not keeping your feet in the water so long, and/or lowering the amount of Epsom salt/peroxide in your next foot soak.
Mister Mike, I seem to be making quite the impact on those buggars!!!
LymePickle - I am quite sure that it is a reinfection. I was completely symptom free from Lyme & Bart symptoms for 3 years, Babesia symptoms for 2 years. I had a tick attach (in a very bad spot!!!) and the bite site stayed swollen, angry red and incredibly itchy for about
6 weeks. The most I have ever had before this was it stayed itchy for about
2 weeks, and only slightly swollen, but not angry red. My symptoms were undeniable within 2 1/2 months after that. But since tests can't tell us when we were infected, I chose to not get any testing done. Treatment response was more than enough to convince me I had Lyme once again. Surprisingly, I have a lot more foot pain that I suspected Lyme could generate though! Since it left as soon as I started Lyme herbs, I'm going to assume that it was due to arthritis (I've broken almost every single bone in both feet) and the Lyme was attacking that. But to be safe, I'll re-evaluate when I finish with Lyme treatment. It won't be a hassle at all to use what worked for my Bart infection last time if I feel the need.
Besides, I'm the most knowledgeable person that I know in my area about
these infections - not bragging - it's the scary truth!! Not one single doctor is willing to diagnose Lyme disease here and you can forget getting treatments here.
Elmesanoya - I am jumping for joy somewhere deep inside!! But the rest of me isn't really feeling like celebrating right now! LOL! But I will celebrate with you as soon as you are in treatment!! We can have a "Ugh I feel like poo" party!!!
I bet we would have a huge turnout of other Lymies too!!!
Thank you so much for thinking of me today, Windypetunia!!
I'm paying for the firewood I moved day before yesterday (I always have a delayed response to exercise when I have Lyme!), so my pain levels are still up and so is the inflammation, but I'm doing pretty well considering! And besides, how can I stay down when I've got such an awesome cheering squad????
How are you doing today?
