For Dr Andersen-PART2 July 2, 2012
Dear Dr Andersen: Its margo with the lorazapem/lyme dilemna:
RE LYME UPDATE
a. I just found out that dr cameron does NOT believe in any vitamin supplements or IV drips. If I go the lyme route, I am going to explore a doctor that uses supplements too.
b. What I had done today was get blood work for a cd57 test for lyme and cbc test. My psychiatrist is basing lyme on chills that come and go all day, anxiety, depression, fatigue one minute (haven't slept more than 4 or 5 hrs) then hyperactivity other days.
QUESTION 1-Could this all be because of lorazapem?
c.I still am uneasy that 2 lyme docs said no that I don't exhibit state that most of their patients are in. They say i have anxiety and depression.
I am get re-tested by stoney brook lab where their lyme sensitive lab first picked up the bands
QUESTION- 2 Learned in april I have the following vitamin deficiencies: vit b2 riboflavin selenium, serine, vit 3, asparagine, k2, b12 boderline (leaning towards good)....
Suprisingly Magnesium was high
Q3-Is it possible all my anxiety and pinpricks are due to vitamin deficiencies rather than lyme.
q4-should I be re-tested and start vitamin therapy while withdrawing from the lorazapem?
q5-WHICH VITAMINS are CONTRAINDICATED with lorazapem?
q6- which supplements would help me with sleep and anxiety, cognitive issues, pinpricks??
Again, I know I am asking detailed report and will compensate. Thanks for all your help. Your fan, Margo.
