Hello

I just started antibiotics for lyme ( 2 years that I looked for a doctor who accepted to precribe me other things that plants, in France, chronic lyme is not recognised...it is a struggle to have a treatment...). I tried several plants treatment but in my case, this was not enough to make effect, just excited small beast...
I took doxy 200, and since it's difficult, all my symptoms exploded... Is it a sign that we have lyme ? how to be sure ?
for me : lyme weak positive in Germania (in France tests are nor reliable...)+cd57 low.
after this, an antibiotic by perfusion... I don't know which one...

Thanks a lot and excuse me for my english smile

Hi Mary, Lyme is not recognised here in Spain also so I understand how difficult it can be.

A weak positive is still a positive, and if the doxy makes you feel worse this could be a herx indicating that you do have lyme.

Are there no Lyme doctors in France you could go and see?

do you have a history of tick bites that you know of?

hy,

the doctor who prescribed me the treatment is a common doctor who knows lyme and dared treat patients with antibiotics vue to symptoms and blood tests and what is important is a treatment the time to complte dispperance of symptoms and not 3 or 4 weeks...Il has been difficult to find ...
But the eventuality of lyme disease is here for me since at least 2 years... I have seen 2 doctors las year a little specialists but they dared no treat me with antibiotics... the serology for lyme has been made in the beginning of my symptoms but given it was negative.. nothing has been done for me.

time lost perhaps if it is that confused I have always the doubt

Mary - Yes, after taking abx, the toxins created from the die-off of the bacteria flood our body...and cause inflammation...which results in an increase in symptoms and even new ones appear.

Are you taking 200 mg twice daily of doxy?

I may have a LLMD listed for France...if you're interested in the contact info - send me an email.

Are you doing much for detox?

hello,I take just 200 mg daily, it's enough... this morning, il was juste terrible at work, i'm librarian in chool... for detox, citrus +water and something with detox plants to dilue with water+epson salt in bath...
I have a doctor who is knowlegeable in my beautiful town (Annecy in france !). I started doxy 7 days ago, it's ridiculous I presume to have an improvement because I have my symptoms fors 4 years...

I'm sorry to say this, but 200 mg daily of doxy isn't enough. For chronic lyme, you should be taking at least 2 different antibiotics, plus most LLMD's prescribe it as 200 mg twice per day.

Are you taking a binder? That is something you might want to incorporate into your detoxing.

Hi Mary,

Binders are a method of detox. When the body has toxins, they go through bile and then into the small intestines. If the toxins don't get stuck to something they will not be flushed out of the body but instead get reabsorbed. So a "binder" will stick to the toxins so they can pass through the digestive track and get eliminated.

Activated charcoal is a good binder. It is a tablet. You can take 1-2 at a time. Here in the united states we can get them in a pharmacy and even grocery stores as well as online. If you use it, do not take it within a few hours of any medication. Best not to do it everyday, because it can also collect and eliminate vital nutrients within your body. I take it at night and I drink a very large glass of water with it.

Hopefully others will comment on binders and how to use them. I know a very basic knowledge, but I know others here are very smart when it comes to binders.

hello,

ah ok ! thanks . I'm going tu buy it du coup (I don't know how to traduce!) . thanks for this advice. Another question : one year after my firsts symptoms has been detected a cancer of thyroid (my lyme doctor thinks it was lyme who has attacked my thyroid...). So I take all days levothyrox. My doctor says me there is not interaction between levothyrox and antibiotics.. I take not twoo in the same time of course.
have a good day
Mary

Drink lots of water when you take the binder.

I found even one full glass of water wasn't enough (i would get constipated) - so I drink two glasses.
