Hi Its margo regarding lymes/lorazapem
By your answer, I see I am not clear. First I have NOT seen Dr Cameron yet. He treats based on symptoms not lab results. Scared to get treatment I don't need.
Thinking of going back and having lyme test repeated before going to him. I never had the 6 bands and the docs won't treat me. Dr Cameron was referral from psychiatrist (i am iffy about)
. My psychiatrist says pinpricks, severe agitation and passing joint aches = lyme.
Q1 - Is that true - I heard people are sooo debilitated with Lymes.
Q2 How else except retaking test can I tell that my malaise is withdrawal related not lyme.
q3 Don't want to take antibiotics unnecessarily- extremely dangerous right?
q4. WHAT IF I GET THOSE ANTIBIOTICS unnecessarily? What problems can occur?
q5 I am at 1.25mg lorazapem and have not decreased since 11 days. Cognitive problems, pin prick sensations, sleep issues. ---
CAN AFTER 11 days I HAVE THESE LINGERING SIDE EFFECTS
q6- before seeing dr cameron - should I get retested at stoney brook for lyme?.
q7- the pins and needles are in my joint fingers. Is this classified as joint pain?
q8- most importantly, by waiting longer before next dosage drop on lorazapem - does sleep improve?
I will compensate accordingly - know I've asked alot of questions. Your huge fan....just try and give me some direction please. Scared to take drugs don't need, yet scared to wait if I do.
Your advice and expertise is appreciated. Margo
