Hi everyone, I feel so discouraged today! I've had a fairly good stretch where things seemed to be improving but then yesterday's I woke after a night of bad dreams with a stomach ache and feeling rotten. Today has started out even worse: headache, upper back pain, dizzy, weird feeling in ears, shaky, a little nauseous and just plain rotten! I also look really pale like the life has drained out of me. The only thing that has been different is that I did a few days of diflucan last week, didn't feel good on it so I stopped and yesterday restarted azithromycin which I've been on for a long time (a year and a half) and it's never seemed to cause a herx. I feel so depressed I'm so ready for this to pass and to have my life back! Thanks for reading!

With lyme you can feel awful no matter what you do. If you stop meds or start meds sometimes makes no difference.

Lyme flares and calms down.

There is no rhyme or reason to lyme and no 2 people have the same symptoms.

It really is a "listen to your body" illness. Even then it is hard to figure all these symptoms out.

My best advice is to be gentle on you. Detox and treat yourself as the most important patient in the room.

So many ups and downs treating these infections...hang in there, detox, take binders and hopefully it will get you back on track soon.

Take care, Jo

Just want to chime in to say you're not alone. The flares are so frustrating. And I agree that detoxing and going easy on yourself as much as possible is the fastest way through them.

Thanks so much! It can just be so discouraging after treating for a year and a half I'll get so hopeful when I have a good stretch and then to get hit so hard all over again just makes me want to cry...a lot of crying!! Thanks for your encouragement!
