I was treated for Lyme in 2013 and haven't had any problems for 3 years, until January - I had terrible shoulder, neck and jaw pain that lasted for 3 mths and then went away.
A few weeks ago I started having fire-like burning left side back pain (in the large muscle that is to the left of your spine, at bra strap level). I didn't have this burning back pain with previous Lyme.
My Dr. hasn't ordered any labs, but is assuming it's the Lyme returning, based on my symptoms.
She has prescribed:
Antibiotics (3 mths max) - Doxy & Cefdinir (7 days a week) and Flagyl (2 days a week).
Herbs - Biocidin
For Herx - Bolymex, H2 Absorb and Glutathione
I'm concerned about
taking this heavy dose of antibiotics without any lab workup (what if it's not Lyme?). Dr. says we will do labs in 8 weeks. Anybody else have this symptom with lyme??
