Hi Jorgen. I have a friend in Germany who has Lyme. He said this strain is treated like the others and it is a trial-and-error process to find the best med, just as it is with B. burgdorferi. He said one study showed that Azithromycin (Zithromax) [I]may [/I] be effective for this strain. There is still so much to learn about these diseases and treatments.

Good luck with the doctor. Let us know how it goes okay?
Hi Jorgen,

I have not read all the other posts but just wanted to tell you that you need to fight them. I know this is hard when you don't feel good but it is the most logical were a healthy young man who suddenly became extremely ill....there are lots of ticks where you live....

It took me four months on antibiotics before I started getting well. I had Babesia (protozoan like malaria that needs to be treated with Mepron and Zithromax - Mepron is an antimalarial), then I was treated with many different combinations of oral antibiotics...not every combination killed the bacteria like others.

I had major herxheimer reactions while taking the meds and actually felt really bad - to the point of scary - stroke like symptoms and heart attack like symptoms - after month four these started to lessen each month and now it is in control.

You are extremely symptomatic for lyme and possible coinfections.

Do not give up. If the IV doesn't work it they cannot just say you don't have could be Ceftriaxone...

Oh, I just read your latest post...You got a positive - I am sorry but at least you know what you are dealing with...How much doxycycline are they giving you - the minimum should be 400 mg. You could be dealing with a coinfection like Babesia and if that is the case it must be treated first before the lyme can be treated.

For me Zithromax and Doxy seemed to be the magic bullet that the little spirochetes hated in my body.

Take care and keep us posted!!! ;)
