  1. Hi
    I’m suffering with lots of neuro symptoms from
    Lyme and co infections. Have g.i. Issues making it difficult to take meds. Your treatment sounds so holistic. Could u please give me name of your Nurse Practitioner?does she do phone consults?

  2. I am sorry for what you are going through. But Personally, I would be ditching any pharmaceutical drugs – including antibiotics. There is always unwanted side effects, and very often inadvertently puts another stress on your immune system. It’s clear by what you are saying that u have already “overburdened” your system with antibiotics, and this is going to do 2 negative things to you: 1. destroy your natural immunity/gut bacteria, and 2. allow the bacteria in your body to mutate and become resistance to that antibiotic through frequent use. Antibiotics are only meant as last stop measures. Try to find natural alternatives. Pharmaceuticals are banking on your remaining sick. I think a lot of those drugs are not needed, and are doing more harm. Was nagalese detected in your blood?

    • Thanks for the comment! Sounds like you are doing well, yes? I haven’t updated this treatment plan for almost a year, so it’s not current atm. I would never “ditch” anything that potentially can be life-saving and helpful to Lyme patients given that we are all so different and our access to treatment resources varies greatly. My choice to use antibiotics was the last measure after there were insufficient herbal protocols to treat secondary infections that I likely picked up while working at a hospital in the Dominican Republic many years ago. I’m very glad to hear you’ve found things that have helped you too. Yes, I did have elevated nagalase levels in 2015. You?

  3. Hi,
    I found this blog. I too suffer from Lyme and it is starting to really depress me. I also have fatigue and lately I am getting lightheaded along with vertigo. Typically, it comes in migraines and joint pain. I have two little kids and a career, so this is getting very upsetting. I have done everything from the holistic approach to the more traditional approaches. Where I live many doctors do not believe in Lyme and want to treat for other issues, even though I tested positive. This has been horrible and I am looking for any type of relief. Any suggestions are welcomed on how to overcome these horrible symptoms.

    • I’m so sorry you are going through this, Heather. Where I live, doctors also don’t believe in Lyme, so I work with a practitioner out-of-state. Is that an option for you? I wasn’t getting anywhere with local practitioners, so I had to make the difficult decision to go elsewhere. Now, I just use regular doctors for less complicated things and annual exams.

  4. Unfortunately, I am also a late-stage chronic lyme disease suffer. I was first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in December of 2015 and started treatment with rebif shortly after. After becoming very ill, unknowingly from the rebif of injections, I sought a second opinion with another multiple sclerosis neurologist at UAB in Birmingham Alabama. Lyme disease never once crossed my mind. He looked at my MRI, which shows 22 lesions, poked and prodded with two other doctors for over an hour and a half. He then tells me that my lesions are not located in the typical regions of the brain that Ms lesions usually are. He asked if I had ever been tested for Lyme disease. Of course I said no because it had never crossed my mind. He tested me couple of weeks later got the test results back and I tested positive for four bands of Lyme. I was sent to an infectious diseases doctor in Huntsville Alabama which is closer to where I live. On the day I saw her, she wanted me to have a PICC line inserted and start a 4 weeks round of 5 mg a day Rocephin with Home Health care. After going through hoops with the insurance company that day on the phone with the doctor and the insurance company on the conference call in order to get the procedure and medications and Home Health approved, I had to wait and later the next week had the PICC line inserted and started treatment. I have bipolar disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia and ADHD.
    During my 4 weeks of treatment with the PICC line I felt better than I have in a long time, even my depression improved.
    Jump forward to the end of my treatment when I have the PICC line removed and I go back to the doctor. After telling me my first visit with her that I would always have Lyme disease because it was chronic late-stage, I estimated I had had it for approximately 12 to 14 years, the doctor Prestige to tell me that I am now “CURED!”
    Now let me just say that I am a very outspoken person and this did not sit well with me. I reminded her that she had told me that I would always have Lyme disease and she proceeded to argue with me. So I demanded another blood test. she did it and of course I tested obviously because I had just been on 5 grams of Rocephin for 4 weeks!!
    Of course I have done intensive research on Lyme disease and have started taking herbal supplements and trying to manage this horrible disease on my own since April of 2017.
    Now I’m at a point to where I am having Vision difficulties, hearing difficulties, the brain fog and cognitive function issues came back almost immediately after having stopped the antibiotic treatment. I have joint pain, memory loss, Bell’s palsy, leg tremors and times when it seems as if I “blackout”, and I lose gaps of time during those periods. And I don’t remember what I was doing or even if I was just standing there or sitting there staring off into space!?
    I do have a service dog that gives me great support. He seems to know when I’m going to have a bad day before I do. He is my biggest supporter! Not only emotionally and physically but literally! He is a Great Dane and will be 2 next week and weighs almost 175 lb which is more than 50 lb than I do! He helps me from falling and helps me up when I do!!
    I am at a point to where I am very discouraged about finding a doctor that can help me. I live in North Alabama and it’s a minimum of a two-hour drive in any direction to find a doctor that knows at least normal amount about Lyme disease.
    Any advice from anybody would be greatly appreciated. And if anyone could suggest a Lyme literate doctor within a few hours drive of North Alabama that would be great! I am unsure of how my insurance is going to handle a new doctor to treat Lyme since I tested negative after the PICC line treatment.

    My prayers go out to all of you who are suffering from this horrible illness and I pray that one day we will all be better!!!
    There are no support groups in my area. So feel free to contact me if you would like.
