Very bad stress induced flair up with both ankles. can hardly wear shoes. Starting dapsone protocal already.

so dmso penetrates deep into tissues and joints.

Consider that lyme likes to hide in joints and tissue where ABX cannot reach it. I mean if you take ABX orally how much do you think is going to reach your ankles where the lyme is currently living? not much at all.

what you could do is prepare a simple dmso/ABX solution, then apply that topically to your ankles. The dmso will carry the ABX deep into the ankle joint, killing it where it lives.

I am not currently on ABX so I cant try this, but I will continue to recommend this until someone actually tries it. Based on my extensive experience with DMSO as a penatrator and carrier agent, I am 99% sure this will work.

I would also consider herbals that help with inflammation.

Possibly Epsom salt foot/ankle baths will help a bit too.

Hope you get some improvement from this soon, take care, Jo
