Lyme Disease Board Index

Hello all,

My name is Scott and today I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Over the last week I felt very fatigued, suffered from headaches worse then migraines ( early diagnosis was Cluster headaches ), a lot of the other symptoms which landed me at my primary care physicians office 2x as well as the ER. I went this morning for a cat scan and blood work and she called me back a couple hours ago and said I test positive for Lyme. She called me in doxycycline 100mg which I have to take twice daily for 28 days then she wants me retested. My relationship with my pcp is new as I just switched insurance providers less then 2 months ago & my former dr didn't take my new ins thus I was forced to move on. She is of the holistic type which is fine however I am somewhat troubled at the notion of taking just an antibiotic for 28 days and drinking plenty of water to combat the growing list of things that are physically holding me back. I'm sure when the antibiotics begin to work I'll see signs of improvement but until then the painful headaches/earaches, the soreness of my knees, ankles, shoulder etc still are there as are my 2 toes on my left foot that are purple and swollen as well as my eye that was swollen. I mean the list goes on as I'm sure most of you know even better then me. With that said can anyone shed some light on this for me?

What would be the best thing to do for pain? My dr obviously thinks water will solve that. I'm not looking for her to give me percocets ( I only name that bc thats what the ER gave me ) I didn't know if there is a medicine out there that non-holistic doctors prescribe to people with lyme.

Are there any things that you recommend me to do diet wise? I've lost 10lbs in the last week. I was never a healthy eater but before today and over the last week as they symptoms sky rocketed out of nowhere I have been eating yogurt and fruits just bc thats all I've been craving. Once a day I will crave a meal but I get filled very fast.

Should I walk on the treadmill from keeping my joints from stiffening up? I feel like once my body gets hot the symptoms get worse or annoying.

I'm sure I am forgetting questions, truthfully my head is still spinning. Thank you to anyone who took the time to answer my questions, share any tips that I never even touched upon etc. I do appreciate your help! I look forward to speaking to anyone who is willing. Thanks and have a good day.
