I've posted here in the past and I'm still on my initial antibiotic/herbal protocol. Over the past few weeks I have had a consistent Herx from monolaurin and minocycline. I take minocycline twice a day, so throughout the whole day I feel unfocused, spacey, overstimulated and slightly psychotic.
A half a year ago before I knew I had Lyme, babesia and bart I always hung out with my friends, went to parties and was markedly extroverted and fun to be around. My friends still want to hang out with me and occasionally we do hang but as of recent I'm unable to hang for even a half hour before I feel like ALL of my energy is drained and I just want them to go home, before I start to feel this impending doom.
At first I thought this may be psychological; GAD, maybe social anxiety but I get it alone too. A half hour after I take my monocycline and/or MONOLAURIN I begin to become derealized. It feels as if my depth perception becomes slightly distorted and I'm unable to focus my eyes on anything. It feels as if I have to inhibit my behavior like I'm going to spasm out or twitch. Just this inner restlessness and irritability, not to mention the terrible joint and deep muscle pain.
I'm 21 years of age and I'm suppose to be active and worry free but it seems that Lyme has taken me over or at least the herx has. Sometimes it feels like the herx can change my behavior and it torments me! What should I do? I can't keep feeling like I'm crazy.
A few months ago my neurologist also had another Lyme patient who had low-functioning autism and bouts of psychotic episodes and hallucinations. After a year of treatment his autism almost, if not completely vanished and so did his psychotic episodes. He's becoming a lawyer and can talk fine with people now. It feels as if I'm unable to talk to people anymore, like I slur my words or have trouble speaking what I want to say, trouble moving how I want to move, trouble seeing; feels like my motor coordination has been obliterated.
I don't know if Lyme, herx reaction, babesia, bartonella can mimic psychosis, derealization, anxiety, Aspergers, etc. I just want some credence that maybe these things are possibly related because I have never felt anything like this before.
Also, would any LLMD prescribe IV Daptomycin, Rocehpin and Doxy. in combination these can eradicate most of the Lyme in all of its forms, in vitro of course.
