Thanks for all the replies. Jojo I think I contracted Lyme last year - in early December. I believe that I got it when flying on a commercial airline with some deer hunters who had been in Northern Wisconsin. Believe it or not! I hate a big bite on my hand the day after I flew with them. Pretty strange huh?? I can' t think of anywhere else I could have gotten it. I am not very outdoorsy at all. I don't even work in the yard! My husband does it. My LLMD agrees it was a weird place to get it!
So I haven't had Lyme very long and I am noticing some substantial improvements after being on Doxy for 5 weeks and Rocephin for 1 week. I have 3 more weeks of Rocephin and hope that is all I will need.
I believe my Lyme accelerated because I had my tonsils out in March (because they didn't know how else to treat my constant sore throats) and the Dr. put me on 6 weeks of steroids - which are totally contraindicated for Lyme sufferers. We didn't know I had it until mid-May.
Thanks again everyone. SROCC20655
