Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

I chased symptoms like yours for 2 years.Had a tick bite with rash,took doxy for 4 days until my doctor called and said I was negative for lyme and probably was having an allergic reaction to the bite! I stopped the Doxy after 4 days!I was so wrong! A year later i had the muscle cramps,brain fog memory loss and most notibly the twitching.My doctor tells me (the lyme specialist that is,I fired all other doctors),that the muscle and jiont pain is not inflamation but actually nerve pain,thats why antiinflammatories don't work.Lyme loves the nervouse system and thats where I'm mostly affected.It's crucial you find a real LLMD like Dr. Burrescano in new york.I even treated myself with doxy for 3 months through the vet while trying to convince someone that this was Lyme.The lyme support group in my area told me that vets understand this disease better than most doctors.They treat a dog for lyme for 6 months but a human 3 weeks?I got remarkably better on the doxy even only taking 100mg 2x dailey.I know,everyone here says it's inadequate,and it probably didn't eradicate it completly,but my pulsating eye twitch went away after 4 weeks as well as my neck,shoulder and knee pain.My son now takes that dose dailey for acne,so why are these doctors reluctant for everyone to be on this longterm???I'm sure he'll be taking it through his teenage years,and it has helped tremendously.
One other point I'd like to make,do you use artificial sweeteners?diet soda,mints,or gum?If so stop immediatly,I read an article about how aspartame can reactivate lyme,and felt alot better after discontinuing it's use.
Good luck in your search,I felt a lot better after finding this site with people going through the same thing.: :wave: http:[url][/url]
My parents both have Lyme Disease. We have been through the mill down here in LA, having been told for years that there is no such thing as Lyme Disease in our area. This doctor used to not believe in Lyme until he got it. Now he treats chronic Lyme patients. You might want to see if you can get in touch with him to find a good doctor: [url][/url]
