Me again! So I am now going on week 3 of a hellish flare up (thinking perhaps Bartonella, but no idea any more)! I had stopped all treatment and things weren't getting better. The odd thing though is I'd have some periods (short ones) throughout the day where I felt somewhat normal. My llmd had me restart doxy since being off treatment didn't seem to make a difference. I have never had any herx anytime on doxy, seemed to do just fine on it the many stretches I've used it. Yesterday I felt somewhat ok for a few hours and even slept quite well. This morning I woke feeling exhausted and achy. My head feels like someone took a bat to it especially in the base, it's so, so bad! My neck too has been very achy and tight and I've been dizzy and extra blurry in my vision. Not sure if this is just another part of this intense flare I've been having. Shouldn't things be getting better instead of worse? I want this nightmare to end! I just need a stretch where I feel somewhat 'ok', I know good is out of the question but just somewhat ok so i can regain a bit of strength and hope...which I feel like I'm losing!
Here is what I'm taking to try to get some relief: magnesium, l-theanine, skullcap, neuro antitox, pinella/burbur, cyflacalm, chlorella. I took 2 aleve as well hoping it might do something. I took an epsom salt bath with no relief!
