So i know i know i know what u all are going to say. . . but hear me out first.
Well Im having horrible side pains...around my hip/left side. Ive heard its common with lyme?? My dr. doesnt / hasn't given me a real explanation of what it is. But its really been bothering me latley. Not only that..but i've just felt like crap latley. Slight eye pressure/run down. . . sleeping alot. Achy, just kinda in a daze. . . . i started taking zithromax again. But then i stoped it cus i only had like 10 pills. . . So now im out. The dr. last time i was down there said all the bacteria was out of my system and im "cured" . I just will have symptoms for 2 years or so. "posttramaticlyme". I go back to him dec. 17th. :-/ any ideas on what i should do? I know your going to say find another lyme dr. But theres none close to me.
Hi eclipse. I am very sorry you are feeling so bad. I don't know if all of your symptoms are from Lyme, but I think it is possible. You have not been properly treated.
In my non-medical opinion, doctors who claim that Lyme symptoms are from "post-Lyme" are not Lyme knowledgeable.
Yes, you really do need to see a better doctor in order to get the treatment you need. Believe me, I know how difficult this is. Many people, including myself, have to travel out of state to see a knowledgeable doctor. Some doctors will spread out appointments and/or do phone consultations in-between for patients who travel to see them. Please talk to your parents about this possibility.
Yea i thought he was a lyme literate dr. aswell. All i know is while im on zithromax i feel fine. Not 100% but the longer im on it the better and better and better im feeling. On a side not can anyone explain if the "side pains" are common at all??
Just wanted to pop in and give you a bit of encouragement. Sorry to hear you're on a roller-coaster.
The good news is that you seem to have found a drug that helps you. I tried different drugs for about two years before I found one that made me feel better.
So if you do get to a new doctor, at least you know what works for you.
Hang in there!
Thanks, im trying. Its really starting to affect me mentally again. I just get these overwhelming feelings of how much im missing out on my youth. Not dating/college/normal things kids do. All i do is work feel sick come home and stair at the computer/tv. I push myself to work out, thats the only thing that gives me feelings of accomplishment. I worry/and just get depressed so easily again. I'm fighting it, but honestly its just getting worse and worse
