Welcome to our community!! I'm so glad you found us!
If you haven't yet, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more.
If you will, while you are reading through the "New to Lyme?" thread, take a look at the Master Symptom List for Lyme - I had all but the more severe heart issues and the male only issues that have almost completely gone away - and I was infected for 40 years before I got treatment. The right treatment that ILADS trained LLMD's use, and the herbal treatments that we talk about
on here a lot are all very effective at healing those with these infections. I also had almost every co-infection and still managed to heal - so keep your hope of recovery alive.
You do need to start detoxing though - these bacteria put off toxins when they die that accumulate in our bodies and drive our symptoms.
One of the places that it "went wrong" was when you were given methylprednisone. That's a steroid and should never be given to someone when any infection is suspected - the label says so, as prednisone lowers the immune system allowing the infection to spread farther and deeper into the body.
