Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi K2626:

I have been under treatment for Lyme for over 3 years and had Lyme for probably 6+ years. About 9 months into treatment I started having terrible abdominal discomfort and light stools. My lipase and amylase numbers were not good at all. This all started about 3 months after a neighbor died from pc. Needless to say I was totally freaking out. I was using Doxy at the time. I started searching the boards for a link between pancreatitis and lyme or pancreatitis and abx. I didn't find much.

I went through all the tests and everything came up negative. My GI doc was convinced it was the abx. He really didn't believe in Lyme and really wanted me to get off the abx. My LLMD is convinced Lyme can cause pancreatitis and wanted me to stay on abx (I was a mess at the time). We ended up switching me to Amoxycillin and Flagyl, as I recall.

My pancreatitis got better over a 2+ month period and I have not had pancreas issues since. I remember my worry and searching boards for other people that had experienced this issue without much success. I wanted to chime in and let you know that this is exactly what I went through 'cause I know it would have brought me down from the ledge, so to speak.

In the end I can't say whether it was the Doxy or the Lyme. I'm not sure my LLMD can either....but I have since switched back to Doxy for periods of time and haven't had pancreas issues.

Good luck,
