I've been taking Doxy for six weeks. The first two weeks, I was taking 200mg/day. Then, after seeing a Naturopathic LL doc, my Doxy was increased to 300mg/day. She was pretty confident I had Lyme, and a week later, my C-6 Peptide came back positive. We're still waiting for my DNAConnexions results to come back. They're backed up, so it could be a few more weeks. Ugh! I think I have Bartonella and Babesia, based on my symptoms and what I've read on this forum. My two major symptoms are hip pain and internal vibrations. I also have/have had a variety of other symptoms.
Monday, I have an appt. with my LL doc. She wanted to meet with me even though the results weren't in, mainly because my meds could run out before the results arrive. I'm hoping she changes up my meds based on my symptoms and her intuition.
After being on Doxy for a week or so, I felt some relief. Several symptoms were less frequent and/or almost gone. The next few weeks, I was having a few wanky days mixed in with good days, but I was starting to feel much better. I felt I had kind of plateaued, and I was ready to move on to the next med to attack more of the bacteria (or different symptoms). I'm still trying to figure out how this works.
Now, at the end of six weeks of Doxy (only Doxy), I'm starting to feel some of the earlier symptoms creep back in. Is this normal? Based on your experience, what should I expect? Any thoughts on what directions my doc may go without knowing what bacteria/s and/or confections I have?
Thank you in advance.
