Hi All,

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.

Thanks

Hang in there! I have had this many times and I think this is how my herxes are playing out. My Intrusive thoughts and urges go bannas and I'll slowly come out of it. My last symptom to go is the intusive thought s. The head pressure is better and inflammation is better. I am doing more binders as well. No gluten. I also wanted to try nuero antiox as well. The intrusive thoughts just suck and make you feel like a lunatic but you are not you are physically I'll and it will pass. Talk with your llmd about changing things up if they are too bad.detox ! Detox! Detox!

thank you Woodduck12! I am trying. they do suck. I have never experienced anything like this prior to october 2017. It really does make you feel like you are losing your mind. It's like you're trapped in your mind and something else is trying to take over (try saying that out loud to someone and not feel crazy lol) I think it's how I herx also but I dont know how to avoid or get rid of it. I think I am going to order the antitox. what do you use as a binder? what do you do for detox?

thx

Yes! I understand where you are coming from before June 17 I was a guy who loved life, laid back and looked forward to what was around the corner. That all changed after a stressful period and nueropathy, head pressure, and these horrible uncharacteristic thoughts happened. Like you I can't tell my friends,fiance, or family out of fear of being ridaculed and seen as having a severe mental illness. My gut always told me that it was pathogens that created this.

I detox by drinking lots of h2o with lemon, sauna at the gym, charcoal,benitie clay, and staying busy. And keeping the faith that this is God's way of teaching me something and I will be a better person because of this.

I remember when I fish started buhners Bart protocol I had a couple hard weeks where I thought I was going to have to be isttionalized because the herxing was horrible. Then the next one came and it was bad but not as bad and so on.

I was EXACTLY where you are about three weeks ago. Then, on the advice of my LLMD, I stopped all antibiotics and herbal killing agents, and just drank a TON of lemon water for three days straight. No kidding--after skipping just TWO doses of abx., the suicidal thoughts were gone. I went from a 2 or a 3 on a 10-point scale, to about a 7 or 8 overnight. I was supposed to start abx back up after detoxifying for a few days, but I just couldn't make myself do it. On the advice of a forum member here, I decided to try the Jernigan protocol. I've been on the Neuro Antitox and the Borrelogen for a couple of weeks now (approximately, I think), and I am still at about a 7 or an 8. I feel SO much better than I did on the abx. I, for one, recommend the Jernigan protocol. At the very least I'd encourage you to try the neuro antitox. Pretty sure it's compatible with abx. I'm taking it with Cymbalta with no problems.
