2nd Opinion LLMD Visit
I went to another LLMD for a 2nd opinion this past Thursday, the doc had requested that I stop all ABX to give my body a break. They advised an herbal remedy of Cats Claw, Rhodiola and other herbs to boost my battered immune system. Even though I`ve been on immune boosters for most of my tick borne duration, I`ve heard of, but never tried Cats Claw, has anyone experianced any success with this?
Kind of leary stoppping my ABX because I`ve been on them for so long now they`ve become my security blanket, but I guess I have no choice. With major problems persisting I guess it`s time for a change, I`ve started this regimen this weekend.
The doc also suggested I have a biopsy done for the lesions on my gland, they gave me the form to have the lab PCR the biopsy. The problem is fining a appropriate doctor to do so. If all recall my other LLMD had referred me to an ENT who inturn referred me to an oral surgen. I googled this oral surgen the other day and he turned out to be a dentist...YIKES! I`m going to call the 2nd opinion LLMD back and ask if they know of a MD that can help.
The 2nd opinion doc also brought up an interesting issue, I`ve read some articles about it before in the past. The doc stated their researching the possibilities of BB mutating itself into a viral form to avoid ABX. I find this interesting and a possibility, a person I know is HIV positive. We have spoke many times about symptoms that he and I share, the scary part is that many of our symptoms are exactly the same. Who knows, maybe the Feds do. So much more research needs to be done.
If and when I ever get some help I`ll let the board know how this pans out.
To everyone on this board, God Bless and be well. BB
