1. BostonM stated that the symptoms have not resolved
2. Very few LLMD get patients to the point of symptoms resolving and although in the very rare case that it does happen the idea would be to continue the treatment for a while longer as with any infection.
3. 10 months of antibiotics are a longer recommendation for a disease than any other disease on earth. even TB.
From my point of view, after my long term treatment with antibiotics and understanding more about how the disease works I think we should turn focus to immune dis-regulation. What needs done? Im not sure. The most up to date suggestion is some form of Rituximab and antivirals for latent viruses.
Whose "up to date suggestion is some form of Rituximab"? Who are you referring to?
I would not suggest an immune suppressing drug to be taken with chronic lyme.
