Can hardly hold my head up

Do you guys feel like you can hardly hold your head up? I am trying to work -down to 1/2 days and every day is a challenge. I am dizzy and my head feels wobbly. I have a really stiff neck still.

Have only been on Doxy for one week. Am waiting for Igenex test to come back. I hope it is accurate.

Things have to look up soon.

Re: Can hardly hold my head up

Hi srocc20655.

I know that feeling.

I work full-time from home at a technical job. Most of the time I feel really tired, but once in a while I get so bad that I can't keep my head up or my eyes open.

The stinky part is that a good nights sleep doesn't help me. I still feel drunk when I wake up.

I've been on Doxy for 9 monthsd and I am slowly getting better. I have some days where I don't need naps.

Try to muddle through it and hang in there. You will feel better someday.

Peace and health to you.

ABSOLUTELY know that feeling. I work full time and for a while it was an absolute nightmare! The Doxy makes me SUPER tired too. On top of body aches, it is just so hard to be effiecient. Every day for months I had to go home straight after work and lay down for a few hours. I hope you have a good doc and the tests are accurate! I had a lot of neck pain too...I found laying with a heating pad always made me feel so much better! AND the detox baths were a godsend as well!!!!
When were you bit? Did you get a bulls eye?!

Re: Can hardly hold my head up

Ok ready for a strange story. This is my theory. I am not very outdoorsy so I don't often get bites of any kind and there is not a lot of Lyme in Michigan. However, back in early December I flew from Chicago to Indianapolis with a bunch of deer hunters. I think had been hunting in Wisconsin. Anyways, they were still in their hunting clothes. That night I stayed at a hotel at the Indy airport and when I woke up in the morning I had a big bite of some kind on my right wrist/forearm. It had a white center and red around it. It didn't last that long and I thought it was a spider bite. Little did I know. One month later I started getting sick. If I didn't have any bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all!! How's that for strange!!

Hi Sroc

That time you cant hold your head up is teh worst, i often have it prior to what i call one of my toxic attacks.

I knwo if i have alot of sugar i can get like it.

When i eventually am in teh position to lie down, i go into a strange over releaxed sleep wonderfull BUT wake in teh worst hangovers.

I usually get this when im not good, and my body is all up in the air, more so than normal. Watch your urine make sure its not to dark, i see mine as part of my herxing, as it links with these times of pain and bloated and back ache ( kidneys ) fatigued to teh max and no strength to hold my head up is s big annoyance as i get to teh stage where i cant drive.

You should eventually learn to read all your bodies signs, it takes a couple of months.

1 week doxy is not long but could be long enough to be having some overload.

keep drinking plenty of water.

and i hope this wave passes over soon.
