Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi Mark,

Don't worry about wearing out your welcome. All Lyme sufferers are welcome here. Its questions that help keep the board going anyway. The whole reason I went to see an LLMD is because I had the exact same symptoms as my friend who had gotten diagnosed with Lyme. She kept insisting I look into it because I knew I had gotten biten by a deer tick, several Lone Star ticks, bit by a cat that had over 100 ticks on her who later died mysteriously and left me with a very infected hand, then there was the incident in high school of being held down by four people and having a tick shoved in my mouth. So we both figured that was more than enough tick exposure to consider Lyme. I had all but 2 of the dr's 30 symptoms he uses to clinically diagnose Lyme so I ended up being tested and treated. I can relate to almost all the symptoms I have read about others having on the board. I even have some of the rarer and more bizarre of the neuro symptoms. I started out self treating with Laurcidin and Samento about a year ago and the brainfog and lack of energy cleared a little. I'm now being treated by a Lyme doc. The first few days the arthritis went away and I was saying hallelujah. But after the first week the pain came back, my joints are swelling like crazy, I can barely hobble around I am so stiff. The biometric reader at work will not recognize my hand scan some days because my hand swells so much. The dr said what I am experiencing now is herxing from all the lovely neurotoxins and that it will get better. But it will be awhile. The meds are causing worse night sweats than ever, I can soak through both sides of the pillow in under two hours. Wonder if that is a world record? LOL Somedays the brainfog clears a bit and I have actually had enough energy to wash the dishes and vacuum. Each day of treatment is different, the symptoms come and go. A different symptom each day, a different part of the body swells each day. Those spirochetes must really be busy moving around. I noticed they hated the hot bath last night. I love making them miserable! Anyway I hope this answers your questions, at least in a roundabout way. Forgive me if I write nonsense at times. The ol brain just ain't what it used to be.
