I'm sorry that I didn't understand that you weren't sure where to even start.
Do you have a copy of your test results? Can you still get a copy of them? If they were from a Western Blot, we might be able to learn somethings from it.
For starters, I would suggest that you get your diet cleaned up (no sugar, very minimally processed foods, lower carb, and no 'fast food'), start drinking lots of water - you can add lemon to it to help alkalize the body, but be sure that you rinse your mouth throughout the day as the lemon is hard on the enamel on your teeth.
You can start detoxing too. This is something that will really help as you go through treatments because as the bacteria die off, they put off toxins that will accumulate in the body and increase your symptoms.
Next you need to find a Lyme literate doctor. It's your choice what type of medicine you prefer - what is considered 'standard' medicine (allopathic), herbal or natural treatments. Most LLMD's will use pharma abx, although some will incorporate herbs as well.
LLND's sometimes use abx along side the herbals and other natural treatments that they use to help the body heal.
We also have several at home herbal protocols that others are using here that have helped heal a lot of people. So the choice is yours, although I do have to say having an ILADS trained doctor to help guide you and help you decipher what's happen is a very valuable thing to have!
Keep asking questions!! That's how we will know what to tell you - the more specific you can make them, the better we can help you.
You need to understand that even if the results come back as negative, you could still have Lyme disease. The Lyme bacteria has the ability to hide out in our body, avoiding detection from our immune system, so that no antibodies are being produced. The tests that are most commonly used only look for the antibodies that are being produced. Even the PCR testing leaves a lot to be desired, as you have a to have a large number of bacteria in your blood at the time of the blood draw for them to show up in this test as well. And the Lyme bacteria only goes into the blood stream when they multiply - otherwise they stay hidden in our tissues, organs, and joints.
But, we know many bands on the Western Blot that are Lyme specific, so when you do get your results, be sure to post them so we can help you see what the testing really revealed.
