I started treatment for Lyme in August. I initially felt better. Then it was up and down a lot, BUT...since January, I feel like the good days are few and far between. LATELY, they are barely there at all. What gives?
I've had terrible herxes from Bactrim, Malarone, and, recently, Ivermectin. Now, instead of the herxes fading and dying down, I just feel terrible ALL the time. For example, I went off the Ivermectin last week cause the herx was so terrible, and I feel as badly today as I did the day I went off it. Shouldn't it fade as I detox?
I just thought eight months into treatment I would not be having insane symptom flairs like I am having right now. All my main/terrible initial symptoms are back with a vengeance. I've been in my bed most of the day dealing with crippling headaches and facial pain. Why does it feel like I'm getting worse?
And (i mean this in the nicest possible way), please don't tell me I'm not detoxing enough or have MTHFR issues. I am detoxing my butt off and have already looked into MTHFR. I guess what scares me, is that I'm starting to have those creeping...
- "do I really have lyme/babesia?" feelings
- is something else wrong with me, and i should be trying to figure out what that is?
- was i just desperate for an answer to my symptoms. Is Igenex really legit?
- are all these supplements and antibiotics really helping...or hurting me?
Now, I don't want to be having these feelings, but have any of you had moments of second guessing?
