I've dealt with advanced Lymes for a couple years now I guess. Sometimes not so bad, sometimes damn I'm a lightweight. Kinda slips my mind I've got it and think it's just being old and other stuff. But the Lymes has been damn near a back breaker at times. (Did 30 days antibiotic oral, 30 days daily IV and again 30 days oral.. didn't accomplish much really.) At this point bearing with it is all I can do. I am 76, glad I didn't get it when I was young at least.
Thanks again, it's encouraging development.
Yeah, same here was treated for Lyme disease probable 8 or 10 years ago but only had the 30 day antibiotic oral treatment... It started with the bullseye tick bite, but I haven't been really right since... Sometimes my joints ache and my knees crack every time I stand up and my feet are usually killing me most of the time and having a hard time getting up from the ground but contribute it to being overweight and old age, but have been thinking for a while maybe it is due to the Lyme disease...
From what I gather there has not been a lot of information for a cure... I'm not sure, but think if you contract it, it'll always be in your system... Does anybody know if that is true?
"a treatment that will attack and kill the pathogen"
The article was too technical for me to understand... So is this treatment going to be able to kill it if it's been in your system for years?
I never had the bulls eye... just felt terrible for over a year. Kudos to my Doc, she included it in a bunch of blood tests second time around and was as astounded as I was at the results. Concerning weight, I wasn't heavy just out of shape around 195 - 205. Completely lost my appetite and scared hell out of my wife and my medicine woman when I dropped to 148 - 150 last March.
Started force feeding eggs for breakfast even though not hungry Doc determined I was starving myself, not enough protein and all.. eating regular again and weighed 176# this morning. About where I want to be with the muscle mass loss I've had.
Discovering they were right when they told me getting old was not for sissies. LOL.. ahh well could be and will be worse some day.
My brother in law's brother's wife has had it for maybe 20 years. Totally debilitated her. I always kinda sneered and thought she was milking it...... until I got it.
My bad, I'm ashamed. Not one of my better moments.
Any positive RX cure to this bacteria is a blessing, pay attention and don't second guess this disease.
