You guys are quick!
Thanks for the band breakdown. I appears I have fancy, European Lyme
The testing was done through Igenex (I wasn't sure if they fell under the 'don't name specific websites/businesses' policy here). I got the Western Blot done through them, IgM and IgC, and the 3-day urine test (which was negative).
I checked the new prescription, it's two 500mg tablets a day, so 1g total. I know when I went to fill the Amoxicillin, the pharmacist was kind of concerned about the high amount, but didn't say anything about the new prescription. The doctor gave me a little sheet explaining herx reactions, and I've been lurking around reading tips on coping with them from this board. It's especially an issue since I do have to work, full time.
I haven't been tested for any co-infections yet, but I'm going to ask when I go back for my follow up appointment. I've been kind of lazy about the daily symptom logging, but I imagine that'll be helpful in determining whether a particular antibiotic is helping or not.
And thanks for the resources, I'll have to see if I can get that book for cheap online somewhere
