To those of you included on this thread: your stories are similar to mine. Basically down the same road as you describes. Doctors thought I was crazy! I was so sick I wanted to die.
I found an llmd after exhausting every type of dr there was. I was tested they igenex and have lyme, Babesia, bartonella. My symptoms were very similar to those you posted.
I have been on abx for a year. They made me herx so bad at first it is indescribable. But I truly believe they have helped kill the infection. I also see a naturopath. She has me on an amazing natural protocol (supplements, drops, probiotics, etc).
I think the combo of abx and natural meds helped me heal.
I am by no means completely healed and I have some bad days, but I'm working again and am able to take care of my family again.
When I was at my worst my mother in law had to live with us. I couldn't walk, drive, and lost my short term memory. I was bedridden for three months. Today I can say I'm living again and happy to be alive again
It's up to you regarding type of treatment. I would research abx and natural methods and figure out what is beat for you.
I know people who can't tolerate the abx, but I haven't had problems being on them. I've been on over twelve different ones. My llmd is amazing and always gives me good advice about my treatment.
Best of luck figuring out your plan. Keep me posted!
