What does everyone do for the pain that it causes? Mine is getting so bad I can't get any relief. I'm taking supplements for Bartonella and Lyme and am seeing a new LLNP in June. My old LLMD didn't seem to know anything about it.
But until then I can barely use my arms they are so weak and they ache terribly. I take gabapentin for my neuropathy but it doesn't seem to make any difference with my arm pain.
How much Gaba are you taking? If it's a low dose...maybe you can raise it?
I've recently started it...and I'm on 300 mg twice daily now..took me a few weeks to get to that amount.
I've had a couple of really good days lately - pain greatly diminished. I'm wondering if it's the Gaba ...or the babesia treatment working. Bad timing on my part to take the Gaba soon after Babs treatment started.
This morning I woke up with burning pain...so this will be a good test for the Gabapentin.
