Hi Agentbad and Lymesgal,
When I finnally got to my LLMD(Dr.D) I had an IV in my arm for 4 weeks(Long story,but Mass General thought I had a central nervouse infection of some sort and thought I had nothing to lose by trying it.)I felt no better,or worse.When I got to Dr.D (I'm going to now refer to him as Dr. D in case there's a witch hunt out for him for treating lyme,they're watching you know!!) Dr. D took one look at the picc line in my arm and ordered it removed!!! He explained that the Dr.'s there were well meaning,but rocepherin is the wrong medicine to kill lyme.The Lyme has a cell wall around it that needs to be busted open(hence,the plaquenil)and the Biaxin kills it.The plaquenil lowers the pH in the body to disarm the cell wall.The Lyme likes an acidic environment,and that's why we are not allowed vitamin c.I was feeding it thousands of milligrams!He told me the only compound Lyme can't make on it's own is B complex,which I was also taking.I will do whatever this man says as he's the only expert I've got!!! who knows?Maybe the IV killed some other co-infection before I started treating the lyme.I hate to think I went through all that for nothing!!!
