: I have tried to respond to your post before and was unable to for some reason. I have Lyme and live in TN. The best thing you can do is see a Lyme literate doctor (LLMD) so you can be properly evaluated. 200mg of Doxy is not a stong enough dosage. You also need to be tested for the co-infections that ticks carry. Your increase in symptoms could be due from a Jarisch-Herxheimer Reaction (herx). Often, when people with Lyme take antibiotics, their symptoms increase or they get new ones. The antibiotics are killing the bacteria, which release toxins, making the person sicker. Although scary when it is happening, it is actually a good sign that the antibiotics are working.
No doctor or clinic referrals may be made on Health Boards.
