What's creepy for me is im having a lot of the symptomsthat I had in the beginning when things were really bad and scary. It makes me wonder if all the treatment I've been doing for a year and a half has been for nothing! Why do some people heal and others are on this never ending journey? There is always a small part of me that wonders if this is the right diagnosis and if there is maybe something that has been missed! My llmd yesterday did say that the problem we have is when I'm feeling good I'm scared to death of adding new treatment because I don't want to feel so bad again! So perhaps I'm just stuck in this vicious circle of treating for awhile and slowly increasing only to be hit by a massive truck and then starting all over! Do some of you just continue treating even if you are doing so bad? I'm so desperate to feel a bit better so I can regain my strength and be slightly more positive!
If you stop temporarily (a few days or even a week or two) after treating for several weeks....that won't put you back to square one. The bacteria are slower growing than that.
I am currently on a M/W/F dosing of my antibiotics for two weeks on and one week off.
Next cycle is the same, but I take 2 weeks off.
This is with a well-known, experienced LLMD. Basically taking meds for 7 days (Flagyl is added on a extra day) one of the months. 7 days a month.
