I developed Lyme symptoms in early July, and was on 2 weeks doxy, off 1 and a half months, back on doxy for 4 weeks. Finally I was diagnosed with Lyme in late October, specifically TBRF, Babesia Duncani and Babesia Microti, and put on a month of antibiotics- nystatin 2tabs 3x a day, azithromycin 500mg 1 a day, tindamax 500 2xper day, and ceftin 500 2x/day.
I was able to see a LLMD who first prescribed me those antibiotics, and has now prescribed- nystatin, malarone, bactrim, and flagyl. Today was my first day on these new antibiotics and I ended up vomiting all of them out of my sytem. Unfortunately I do not have enough money to regularly consult with a LLMD, and am looking for advice on treatment. Are any of these current antibiotics more likely to have caused the vomiting?
Any suggestions on how to go forward with treatment?
Also, does anyone know a LLMD in the UK who treats either on public healthcare (NHS) or BUPA medical insurance?
other questions: does taking activated charcoal with abx nullify the effects of abx? if herxing is the dying of lyme bacteria, is herxing good? i've been taking very hot baths, and herxing quite hard after, is this good?
I have gotten quite depressed reading many stories of debilitating lyme, have had to quit my job, return to live with my parents, rarely leave the house and cannot engage in all the things i loved (exercise and sports, reading, partying, hanging out with friends) and find I am not a pleasant person to be around and am dragging on my family. Does anyone have any success stories for lyme? would love to hear them, hear timelines of healing or not.
Many many thanks,
