I am in desperate need of some help. My symptoms have mainly been mental (anxiety and suicidal thoughts--I am not depressed but battle thoughts of dying constantly esp when my head symptoms are at their worst). I am interested in starting the Jernigan neuro antitox CNS/PNS for some relief. I cant keep feeling like this. I get head pressure, headaches, weird electrical like feelings in my head, tingling in the fingers on my left hand, and some heart racing. It's a toss up every day whether my symptoms will be head or chest related (I chalk both of these up to anxiety).I am currently taking Buspirone 7.5mg 2-3x a day for anxiety. I am also pulsing Ceftin 500mg 2x a day and doxy 100mg 2x day MWF. 3 weeks on, 1 week off with Flagyl last 3 days of the 3rd week.
I find myself in a yo-yo cycle. I have had some ok days but seem to be sliding here lately, spent my mothers day yesterday on the couch mainly bc I mentally felt like I was in a pit and my body felt like I was hit by a truck just completely drained. I have been having more fatigue lately as well, just feeling completely drained in the afternoons. also noticing my insomnia is coming back eventhough I take seroquel (very dose) to sleep.
I was diagnosed in Oct 2017 and have been on abx since. Been through the list doxy, ceftin, cefdinir, zithromax, clindamycin, flagyl, augmentin (couldnt tolerate more than 3 days of this one).
I feel like I am at my wits end. I have been very emotional today, I dont know if this is a herx or not, I just did a week of meds and starting week 2 on today. I drink lemon water. I am just desperate for some relief. I am better than I was in Oct but I dont seem to be moving forward esp mentally.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am considering going on the Jernigan protocol. Can I take the neuro antitox with abx or anxiety meds? or his protocol with abx?
Just want my life back. I am 36 with 3 young children and I feel like my world got thrown over a cliff. I am so afraid of what this disease is doing to me mentally.
