I am confused..... could someone explain...
I am on three antiboitics, Levaquin, ketek, and Flagyl during my pulse.
I love this treatment. While on for a few striaght years I never felt good. During the pulse I get a break where life seems it can come back.
I will never beat Lyme so its up to me, to find the mix and doses that make me feel the best.
Lyme is slow growing I guess and for me the pulse is great! I don't have bad herxes doing this. And my body gets a really needed break from the pills.
I believe I am having liver or kidney problems, and during my antibiotics, my lower back is in very bad pain. When I go off the antibiotics the pain in my back fades after about two weeks off.
For me pulse is the right treatment, I have been doing it for a year. Started off only having five days off, and 21 days on.
Now I am on for 7 days, and during this, everyother day I have off, and then add flagyl to my last three days. My last pulse after 7 weeks off, I had no or little herx. Only a week later I go through withdraw from the meds.
Hope this helps.
