Since I've not tested completely positive, I'm always wondering how my story lines up with others.
"Marker" tests , symptoms and the stages it progressed to point to chronic tick infections, and my ill experience when I started ABX looked like herxing.
One year ago , nov 2013, I started ABX, three at once, via LLMD. In the fisrt three days I became keyed up and edgy. The next weeks I no longer slept more than three hours, I sweated, my body tightened up, hand tremors. Month two, talking was difficult, I became dyslexic on the compute and on paper, forgot simple words, cant spell, forgot names, people thought I was stoned. I got some wierd looks. Under eys yellowed.
Those were all symptoms I had the previous 25 years at different periods, but now I had them all at once. The only thing that didnt comeback was my temporary blindness from '08- the scariest time of my life - and drs did nothing.
This herxing lasted three months, and then I felt better really at 4.5 to 5 months - long time.
Fast forward to nov 2015: On two ABX, I still cant spell like before., Less dyslexic, talk better, sleep 6 hours sometimes, less hand tremores. Still cant stand in one place more than 10 min without back/hip pain. But I am nociibly stronger.
For you forum veterans out there , any comments? I am getting impatient after one year, and wonder how my story compares to others that have been here. I dont know if I'm platuewing or what.
I did go on a 6 month immune boost program for lack of a better term before ABX- all natural stuff to build immune- not to kill bacteria - A functional MD Dr plan.
