I went to the doctors in Feb. took bloodwork came back mono after two weeks went back for recheck and was told I had lyme so they gave me doxy I started taking it but it but it made my heart race. So I called them and he said to stop taking it and to come back in a week for more bloodwork .I went back and it came back mono only and I was told to just let it run its course as there is no medicine for mono. So after my three weeks were up I went back for more bloodwork and it came back mono and lyme again and the lyme numbers went up. I am now on Cefuroxime 500mg twice a day for a week now and feel so spacey and my joints are starting to hurt. I am so scared all I do is cry. Any suggestions where I should go from here?

you could be herxing. When you kill the bacteria off it creates toxins and they can increase or add new symptoms.

You should be detoxing, take warm not hot Epsom salt baths.usually start out at only about 10 minutes then build up to longer ones.

You can drink water with Lemon juice during the day.

Many of us use binders such as activated charcoal or zeobind to bind the toxins . Just be sure to always take them 2 hours away from medicine/herbals or it will ind those to.

Mono is caused by the EBV and this often is emerges when we have lyme disease. Our immune system is not working well, allowing the Virus to take over.

It's best you are treated by a Lyme literate Dr. A couple weeks of antibiotics won't be sufficient.

Girlie -I need to find a LLD in my area we are looking for one . Last night was awful hot and cold shakes and pains in my joints. I guess I am hexying it is awful. This is all new to me and I am happy to have found this forum. Would you suggest finishing out the medicine that my doctor gave me before I go to a lld? If I can even find one in my area.Also I was told it was not EBV I am very confused . Thank you so much for all your help
