Hi Dr Andersen:
Margo with lorazapem and Lymes....
Here's what is going on.
Went to Dr Cameron - director ILLADS - diagnosed with lyme. He gave me 50mg doxyclycline 2x per day plus probiotic. He said that I won't need sleep aids as Loraz will work better. He is right. Here is my question:
I have heard alot about herxing...that it is when the bacteria die you have symptoms. So far on the antibiotics I've had a passing sore throat, sweats....
Q1- is herxing basically flu like symptoms with muscle aches...or
Q2- when there is die off of the bacteria I will have all those anxiety symptoms again.
I know they look for herxing to gauge if the antibiotic is working. Plse find out for me what you can. comp as usual.
Q- I got the 3 bands in April 2012- then I'm sure I had it...takes at least few weeks for them to show up...In my case going on and off wellbutrin / topamax / thyroid - could of given me the anxiety symptoms. Hoping this is the case and I have just Lyme.
Q- want to really know what symptoms of herxing are.
You are the best, XXXXX XXXXX you tell it from the heart and straight. Thank god you guided me to re-test for lymes.... Margo
