Good morning everyone
I have been on doxy 200mg twice a day for a week now and in some ways feel a little better. Just having the fever gone has helped. The overwhelming fatigue is the same but the neck,joint and muscle pain has decreased some. Although the muscle fatigue is still limiting me I still work a full time job all week and by Wed I am ready to just cry because I am so tired. I found myself at times falling asleep at the wheel on the way home. I am going to start carpooling with one of my co-workers. I will drive to his house(5 miles from me) and he will do the long part of the drive and this will decrease my drive time and keep me off the highway. I cannot afford to not work so I have to keep going. My boss is very understanding of this situation and has encouraged me to leave early if need be or take a day off.
My new symptom over the past few days is my left knee is swollen. I have read somewhere that sometimes having a joint aspirated and sent off for testing should be done. What does everyone think about this?
I found a wonderful holistic store nearby and tomorrow will be talking to one of their wellness counsellors who has LD herself. I am so looking forward to going after this disease from a healthier lifestyle as well!
