Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


Well, she started me in iodine for my thyroid and gave me doxy for the Lyme, but I had a severe reaction from the doxy. Since my thyroid is so out of whack, she said the iodine would flush out the Lyme but it would take longer. She seems to know more about Lyme than the clueless infectious disease dr I saw. BUT - she may not know as much as an LLMD. I can't seem to find an LLMD here in tallahassee.

I've read that iodine works for Lyme, but the symptoms come back when you stop the iodine. At this point, I'm not sure what to do. Since being infected with Lyme, I've gotten Hashimoto's thyroiditis, celiac disease, candida, adrenal fatigue, and one month I'm hyperthyroid and the next I'm hypo. I have so many symptoms and ailments I don't know what disease/virus is causing what!

I'll definitely keep posting updates on the iodine.

Really, most likely it is the lyme causing all of them. That was my experience, and it's very common among lymies. An LLMD, I think, understands this ongoing syndrome. I, too, did Iodoral but it did nothing for the lyme. Let us know how it goes. Btw: Doxy is very strong. Those critters need something with a good wallop, but it makes most people feel ill in the process. This is when detoxing is needed, rather than stopping the treatment.

[COLOR="Teal"]Tally just my thoughts here. Your NP may know more than the I.D. doc. But just doing iodine is not the treatment for this hideous disease. I wish it were, then we would all be healed and not on long term treatment.

The reaction you had to the doxy is most likely a Herx. As Tess explained, it is a kill off of the bacteria. And detoxing is highly important.

If your NP were totally lyme literate, they would know that more than one antibiotic is needed to kill off the 3 life stages to the bacteria.. And high doses are needed.

Possibly keep your NP to help you with supplements, but truly you need someone that knows exactly how to treat, what to look for, and know when it is time to switch the protocols around.

Lyme is not just a one size fits all disease. There are over 300 strains and with the traveling of people, pets, birds now days. The strains are getting transferred all around the world. So this means, we can have more than ONE strain in us. Plus any of the co-infections, parasites, heavy metals.

From where you are sitting you can find a lyme support group in your city, county or state, or what ever is near by. There should be a contact name, request a LLMD closests to you.

This is nothing to take lightly.
