I saw a neurologist who diagnosed neurolyme/encephalitis (sp?!) and started me on 2g Rocephin for 28 days. This was June of last year. I would say that yes, it did clear up some of my neurological symptoms.
I had started to have simple partial absence seizures and I haven't had once since finishing the rocephin. It helped reduce my neck and shoulder pain which was by far the most debilitating and painful symptom. It improved my brain fog somewhat.
As I was completely new to the Lyme world and had no idea what I was doing (neither did he, it would seem) I wasn't advised to take any cyst busters or do any detox or take any probiotics whilst taking the antibiotics. This is a big regret of mine as I am now dealing with candida and gut issues as a result of this.
Nearly a year on and I am now following Buhner's herbal protocol to address the residual symptoms and I have noticed that Bartonella symptoms have appeared.
I did not have a picc line, as it was just for 28 days I went back and forth to the hospital every day and had the port in my hands changed every 2-3 days.
For me, I felt it was the right course of action to treat by hitting it hard with antibiotics and then following that with herbals. I am glad that I did the Rocephin but knowing what I know now I would have been more prepared. I do feel it helped with the symptoms I was treated with it for.
