Hi All,

Urgent request as I have a job interview tomorrow and I'm at my wit's end. I was diagnosed with Lyme 2 weeks ago and started a 3 week course of Doxycline. I'm also doing Dr. Buhner's regular protocol. Oneof my symptoms before diagnosis was frequent urination and that's actually what I went to the doc for initially. And when I say frequent, it was a lot... the minute I would lie down at night, I had to get up again... 5 minute intervals until 3-4am. First 2 weeks on doxy I saw a significant difference that started right away and reduced my need to go. I'm now in week 3 of treatment, and the urgent and frequent urination need came back again... along with joint pain and feeling feverish. Any ideas on what can help me here. I have a job interview tomorrow that's super important.

Thanks for any ideas and advice.

Hi Samantha. Welcome!

This isn't a recent infection, right?

To treat a chronic infection, you need to be on more than one antibiotic. Mono therapy isn't recommended.
Is this a LLMD?

It could be that you need to address the other forms of lyme - the cyst and biofilms.
..and coinfections - bartonella and babesia - are the common ones that need to be addressed with different antibiotics/antimalarial.

Do you have a good detox regimen? I'm wondering if you have a lot of toxins in your system from the first 2 weeks of treatment. ...and this could be a herx.

I would start with detoxing...a few methods...initially and every few days add in another one.

Some detoxing ideas:

- Drink plenty of water daily
- Add some fresh squeezed lemon juice into some glasses
- take epsom salt baths
- dry brush your skin prior to bathing and showering
- light exercise


Here's a website with some suggestions:

Hi Girlie,

You're amazing to post a response this quickly! Thank you so much!

This is a recent and my first time infection. I think I was infected around last September (2017) while traveling in UK. However, I was only diagnosed for the first time on 4/1.I'm planning to send my Igenex kits back for diagnosis of complete list of infections and co-infections this week.

In terms of detox, I'm doing charcoal once a week, and lemon water every day. I'm also starting C-salts tomorrow. And drinking tons of water all day. Will get back in the gym this week once my energy is back up a little... I have been good about it more or less in the last 6 months.
