Hmmm.. some good posts, I particularly like the one that states "I don't know of any Lyme patient that has become a drug addict".. that's impressive. I'm curious as to what country and it state you live in and wether or not these 'patients' in deed actually have Lyme disease. In my home states of Massachusetts and NH nearly every person I know with Lyme have become dependent on opiates from the debilitating arthritis like pain or some form of benzo from the debilitating anxiety..
Yes they have Lyme disease.
I am on the west coast of Canada and no they aren’t drug addicts - I’m talking about
the people who I have had interactions with over the past 4 years.
I’m not saying that no lyme patients are drug addicts - I’m saying not everyone is or most everyone.
Seriously - nearly everyone you know with lyme in Mass and NH is dependent on opiates??
I’m not on opiates and my worst symptom is pain - I have tried gabapentin tho.
I’d try a CBD/thc blend before I took opiates.
However I was on T3’s for a couple weeks prior to my diagnosis of Lyme..for a supposed pinched nerve but never got addicted to them.
Opiates are very effective short term for pain relief.
