I wrote a long post on my LDI update and my Internet Explorer shut down. Ugh. Anyway, took a booster last week and my buzzing went away completely again. However, have had some old & new things crop back up like palpitations (old), jaw pain (old) and jaw/teeth shaking (new), knee pain (old). Today I feel the buzzing in my feet on a very low level. So it was gone completely for 7 days this time which is 2 days more than the last time. This means I need a booster again and will probably do that on Sunday. I am doing a round of chelation right now and don't like to overlap (although I was told it's fine to chelate while on LDI). Nutramedix Pinella really helps with my jaw tightness. I am wondering if this is a herx of some sort. My detox has not been the greatest the last few weeks.
Had a Skype call yesterday with the main LDI doc himself. He wants to split my Lyme LDI out to separate Bartonella and Borellia (usually it contains Borellia and co’s in one). He believes my buzzing is Bartonella related and my dose for that is right on. I agree with this because when I took abx a few months back I did have a change in my buzzing when I took Biaxin/Plaquenil combo. I believe Biaxin hits Bart, so that makes sense. The rest of my abx were Borellia targeted. But my more Borellia-type symptoms have had no change, so he thinks we need to go stronger on the Borellia LDI . Fingers crossed. Probably won’t get the split doses for a week or so.
Since I am getting an almost immediate response with my internal buzzing, it is enough to keep me going with this.
Also, my LLNP ran some bloodwork last week and my CD-57 went up to 59. It was 41 in August. I had only been on LDI for 3 weeks prior to test, so I am sure the score is a reflection of the 10 wks of abx, supplements, parasite treatment, metal chelation, detox, etc. However, it will be an interesting gauge to see if it continues to rise while doing LDI. If it would happen to go south then I know I should probably get back on abx.
