On the other side of the spectrum, I contribute heavy exercise to my recovery. I pushed myself through a lot of uncomfortable hours Aat the gym, but it helped and gave me more progress then any llmd.
If you can handle it push yourself, but know your limits. Otherwise there is nothing wrong with light exercise. Sedentary on the couch is unhealthy.
So, you didn't have much improvement with the treatment that your LLMD prescribed?
wow - what was he prescribing?
The physical therapy has helped me...but it certainly doesn't replace the treatment to kill the bacteria.In my opinion I was embalmed with more antibiotics then needed. Before I even saw an LLMD my Non LLMD ID had me on for weeks doxy, three Amoxi and another four of IV Rocephin. I believe in my heart of hearts that the infection was no long active and the issues I dealt with in the coming months were from damage caused by the infection and the only thing that was going to pull me through was time to heal.
The LLMD's tried to get me to do another picc line, lots of mino, rifampin, ceftin, etc. Also told me to fear sugar, not to exercise etc.
When I started doing the opposite (exercise, and eating whatever I wanted) and stopped being a slave to lyme 24/7 that's where I personally showed the most improvement.
And my diagnosis is not questionable, textbook em rash + positive western blot x 2 + c6 from non igenex and mainstream labs.
