Welcome to our community! I"m so glad you found us.
As JulyMorning said, we do encourage everyone to read through our "New to Lyme?" thread as it's packed with a ton of helpful information.
I do know *some* about
MCAD, and if you have MCAD, then you MUST do the testing to confirm, as it can turn into a life threatening situation if ignored. Not to mention that you still need treatment for the ongoing infections you have.
If your doctor won't continue with testing and treatments, then you will simply have to find one that will. I've messaged a member on here that doesn't post often because she's really sick with these infections and MCAD herself - hoping that she's up to posting, but she may not be.
I too was wondering what you may have been told or know about
detoxing and herxing. Herxing IS a minor MCAD event, but it usually doesn't get too far along for most people. I seem to have a more minor issue with MCAD when I'm in treatment myself - quercetin has been a big help for me, but you shouldn't just try it without testing to find out what you can use and what you can't.
