Yeah, bad day for me. I spent most of the afternoon in bed. My throat is so sore and I just feel bad..My herx doesn't seem to have a pattern at all. I had a sore throat for 4 straight months after starting the ketek. In March when he switched me to ceftin and ketek it started coming and going. It is hard to believe that after 6 months on these abx there are still bacteria around. I know I was sick for 2 years but wow I never knew how bad this illness was. I live in NH and most people and Doctors don't know anything about Lyme.
I am going to ask the doctor about that supplement. I am taking the 5HTP but I am not sure what that is suppose to be doing for me. I think he will switch the cortef doses around. He has to do something UGH. He doesn't do the IV's so if he thinks I need to have that I will have to go to someone else.
My insurance co. didn't pay for the Igenex test. I want to have another one done and another CD-57. I am going to ask next week. Thank goodness the insurance takes care of most of the abx. The ketek is still very expensive though. Lets hope that tomorrow will be a better day for us. Take care

Hey Kim:)

I took 5HTP a few months ago and it helped. Although, I probably need a smaller dose because I found it made me "out of it" a little, it supposed to be good for a whole bunch of things. It is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. Here is a list of symptoms it is supposed to help:

Depression
Obesity
Carbohydrate craving
Bulimia
Insomnia
Narcolepsy
Sleep apnea
Migraine headaches
Tension headaches
Chronic daily headaches
Premenstrual syndrome
Fibromyalgia

In fact, I had forgot about it and after readin your post, I think I will start taking it again. It really helped me. I bet it will help the pain in my legs too.

Hugs,
Chantel
