Hi Buzzbomb - welcome to the forum!
Sorry you are feeling so bad. Your symptoms, story are sooo familiar to us on the forum.
I think you should get the Igenex Western Blot test, and also find a LLMD and schedule an appointment. You must take charge of your health...because no one else will.
How did I cope with everything before I knew what was going on? Not very well...I was a mess. But, I didn't know about
this forum...and I waited far too long to get tested and diagnosed. That is the one thing I truly regret - not acting sooner.
I still have days where I'm not very positive...but I do the best I can.
I am lucky, my family has been supportive from the beginning. But, many people don't have the support.
It's good that you are detoxing - that is very important...and will be a big help once you start treatment.
Regarding herbal remedies - you could start with a few herbs on your own. The one I chose was Buhner. I started taking Japanese Knotweed, Cat's Claw and Eleutheros. There are other herbal protocols as well - one is called Cowden.
I chose Buhner - as it was not expensive, and seemed quite easy to follow. He has books to purchase that are also inexpensive, as well as the lyme protocol on the web site.
Here is the link to the website.buhnerhealinglyme.com/
Keep reading and posting on this forum - you will get lots of support here, to help you through your rough days.
don't worry, it will get better.
