I am sorry to hear that. I too have Lyme. I know a lot about it.....I just got over a round of antibiotics and I believe I caught it in time this time around.
You feel horrible because you are having a die off of the spirochette. That is a good thing. The problem is, if you have been living with Lyme for years, 3 months may not be enough. It will kill the weaker bugs but the others that don't die will become resistant. You might want to seek out a Lyme Literate Doctor. That's what I did the second time I got Lyme. It is not covered by insurance and it cost me thousands of dollars. It was combo meds for about a year!
Along with taking this medicine, you need to get healthy. Your Fibro is probably not really fibro, but Lyme. Lyme mimics all kinds of other diseases and people go misdiagnosed for a long time. Get at least 8 hrs of sleep a night, eat healthy, take herbal supplements ( Samento ) , exercise and juice. You need to hit the Lyme from every direction.
There is so much controversy over Lyme. The tests are only about 40% accurate giving false negatives most of the time. Insurance companies won't admit there is a problem with the testing and treatment because it would cost billions of dollars........Infectious disease Docs are the worst!!!
You can also go on curezone for more information on cures. Good luck Missy!
