flu...lyme...grr??

So i know lyme def. lowers your immune system. I think i got a really bad flu bug or something tahts been going around? I've been sick about a week now. First my throat/glands were real swollen, went to the dr. gave me med's and it felt better. I felt icky tho just like sicky run down fatigue drained ext. Well now my stomach really hurts and i just fell horrible-drained, runned down, just really sick. How long does it take to get over the flu with the lyme?

Hi eclipse. How long have you been on the meds now? While it is possible you have the flu, you may be herxing.

I hope you feel better soon.

Re: flu...lyme...grr??

Re: flu...lyme...grr??

Michael did any of those doctors test you for Epstein Barr Virus or Cytomeglovirus? Or any of the herpe family??? They can cause what you are going through also. These were not addressed in me up until about maybe a year and half ago. Herpe virus's are killers too!

Hope you feel better soon.

Re: flu...lyme...grr??

Let your fingers do the oogle walk..

Virus's are just as crazy as bacteria (s). Majority of us have Epstein Barr and Cytomeglovirus and other herpe virus's in our systems. When our immune systems drain low they love to flare up....

check out the symptoms for them......These cause Mono ....

Hope you are feeling better today.

hugs
