Thanks Jen ! I'll take a probiotic and drink kefir. (I love kefir anyway.. I make it with goat milk !)
I am awaiting the Western blot lab results now for (relative) confirmation of Lyme and hope so much that I have caught this disease early. I think I got it about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Symptoms started with a small and itchy rash on my neck then. Last Tues. it got much worse and my neck got stiff and puffy too up to my ear and I couldn't open my mouth all the way. A trip to the ER gave me a prelim. Dx. I'm seeing a Lyme literate chiropractor next week in VT where I live that wants to work on my immune response so that it doesn't get overactive. (Attacking the bacteria is already happening bc I'm taking doxycycline.) He spoke to me about T regulatory cells which are a part of the immune system.
Anyway, I am wondering just how long I've had it and if I have a chance of nipping it now with aggressive treatment.
Also, is 3 weeks of doxy for first symptoms long enough? I have no joint or neurological symptoms. Thanks for your help.
