Ashleyann82587 lyme is such a weird disease. You cannot figure it out and don't try. You will frustrate yourself and spend a lot of energy that you should spend on healing.
I did antibiotics for about
6 weeks, I think..... memory was super bad then. My first doc (regular GP) thought I had a sinus infection. I knew better, but he thought my symptoms of a horrible head pain, weird sore throat, ears that were plugged, sore neck were a sinus infection...... Nope.
He gave me a Z-Pak for a suspected sinus infection. Well, that did nothing. So back to him I went. By this time I had realized that the bite mark on my arm was a bull's eye - yeah for the internet. I asked him for a lyme test. I had a Quest lyme Elisa test and it was negative.
My doc was worried about
my head pain. It was not gone with narcotics. My doc knows that I have a high pain tolerance so he sent me to a neurologist. I asked the neurologist if lyme disease could cause my head pain and he said, "you don't get a headache with lyme disease." I should have walked out right then... but I was always told to be a gracious lady and polite.
I called his office later and said I would not be doing his MRI's.
So I went to a LLMD that was at one time my regular doctor. He turned to specialize in "hard cases." And, he became a LLMD. He gave me antibiotics based on my bull's eye - Ceftin and Biazin. I asked for those because it was summer and I am a huge outdoor person and did not want to get sunburned. I can't really remember how long I was on them, but near the end of my dose (probably 21 or 28 days) I was so sick. I was eating more crackers and good ginger ale or 7-up organic type drinks just to keep the drugs down. I would take them and up they would come.
I decided that antibiotics were not for me with this illness. It had been over 20 years since I had ever been sick (beside a cold) so I had no experience with drugs.
I came on here and then I found the different site to search for another LLMD. But this one had to give me herbs. I found him and he was amazing. He and his wife had just move into my area from Tennessee and both of them had lyme disease. Both had healed using herbs because his wife could not take antibiotics. So I got Beyond Balance MC-BB-1 and Tox Ease Gl tinctures from him.
Oh my gosh...... within just a few weeks I was feeling better. But holy moley the Beyond Balance herb tinctures were like 50 bucks a bottle. I had no idea that this was a good deal. I went looking in other places.
I found Buhner's protocol and decided (based on a pro/con list) that it was what I should do. So I jumped right into th4e Buhner protocol.
I am OCD, anal retentive, Type A, and a Pain In the Arse! I did Buhner's protocol EXACTLY as he wrote it out. One herb at a time, dose by dose. And at the same time I continued to do those 2 Beyond Balance herb bottles.
Viola, I healed! Not like anyone else on this forum. Not like anyone approved of on this forum. I did it all my way and I healed.
A few months after I healed my husband came to me and said he had tinnitus. He said he also was having a hard time at the gym lifting weights. And then he told me other things that were wonky. OMG -0 my husband had lyme too.
So back to Beyond Balance and Buhner's herbs my cupboards were once again full. I thought I could clean that space out totally. He healed, but has since relapsed. I think he fudged on when he was symptom free. You can't do that. You have to be 2 (I went 3) months without symptoms before I stopped treatment. I don't think he got that far... but oh well.... he is treating again.
I don't know that this will help you. Honestly, we all have to find our own way to heal. What works for me, might not work for you, and vice versa. A lot of herbs that I took made hubby ill. He and I were so different and I swear that he got lyme from me.
That is the way with lyme. We each have to find our own treatment based on so many things. When we were bit, what do we eat, do we detox, do we sleep well and how do we handle stress.
You can't cure lyme with one method. You have to deal with all of my last paragraph in order to heal.
But!!!! If I can do it, you can do it. There is your hope. <3
