... If she received the "standard treatment" of 3 weeks of 200mg Doxycycline, I'd say it was a treatment failure; that low dose and length isn't effective.

Now CFS, MS, Lupus and other immune related disorders are recently being proven to be tied into bacterial/spirochete infections. You've described it well- Its muscular fatigue. That dip in your energy levels is a space that the bacteria occupy. The more you go out... (4 replies)
