Hey all

Still not sure if I have Lyme, my physical is in August unfortunately.

I've been experiencing a new symptom, and wondering if it could be Lyme associated.

Recently, I've been feeling either very warm or very cold, with little middle ground. When I wake up in the morning, I'm freezing, even though the thermostat is at 70 degrees. I took my temperature this morning; it was about 96.0 degrees. Last night however, was a different story. I felt extremely hot, like I had a fever. However, my temperature was about 98.8 degrees. I took my temperature again this afternoon and it was 98.4 degrees.

Is this something that occurs with Lyme? I'm concerned about the low body temperature in the morning.


Dr Jernigan devotes about 40 pages of his book "Beating Lyme's Disease...." to this topic. He believes that optimal core body temperature should range from 98.6 to 99.0 and that anything less means that the body is not able to detoxify properly due to thickening of fluids such as blood and lymph. I finally bought a digital thermometer that I carry with me and started a log as an indicator of my progress. My symptoms are minimal and I am able to run many miles. But something is amiss as I note my morning temparature is around 96.8 and can be less at night. I have had my body temperatrure drop by 2 full degrees after an hour running down to 95.6. This suggest to me that if I ever have to stop excercising I could be in big trouble.

Hey sleeper,

I have been trying to keep a firmer handle on the temp thing ever since dorkdad told me to send him a couple of days worth. I am going on day 13 of the saventaro. I had taken about 4 weeks of colloidal silver before it. The package says 1 3x a day for 10 days and then 1 a day. My homeopathic prescribed 1 3x a day for 5 days and then 2 3x a day til we get this under control. I looked at him kind of funny but he said we need to get rid of this he said.

I was doing okay the first few days on the lower dose but my butt is really dragging now for about a week or so. I almost called him yesterday and asked if I could change it but never got around to it. I can't sleep it's just that I have a hard time putting one foot in front of the other. Scary!

Anyway, when I did the temps for dorkdad they were all over the place and the last week they have been almost all in the 98.2 - 98.4 range. I even had one at 98.8. I started to question if the thermometer was wrong so my husband took his and it was 98.4. A couple of days I have had one reading at 97.6 or 97.9 but almost hourly they are all over 98. I am presuming this is good and maybe my feeling draggy is just some good old herxing going on. Should herxing just keep going on and on like that?

You are one of the few people who can relate to the hardly being able to walk business so I thought maybe you had some insight into this. I did send him the letter about the cholesteryamine and supplements yesterday and can't wait to see what he has to say.

I hope you are still doing great. I can't believe that just a couple of months ago you were in a wheelchair at Disney and now you are talking about working and golfing. Ronnie would kill for me to go golfing again. Personally I like bowling. The ball comes back to me I don't have to hunt for it. :D Thanks for your input.
