[QUOTE=silentstones;2889037]i went to the infectious disease dr. ( per reffer by my family phy). , to get my pic put in . ok she tells me that there is no such thing as cronic lyme , that she acually was the specialist and had even written a chapter about it . that all these people go on line and get into these support groupes .get false hope . then find these So Called lyme specialist ,spend time and money . these dr.s then put people on all these antibotics that have no effect . and usually end up worse than they started because of the side effects of abx . that if the golden oppertunity of the first few wks were not taken then there was no cure for this or most of the other coinfections . she talked to dr. c in MO and she said that he said that he accually recommended an oral abx. which in the visit he did say that he was going to start me on oral but when i ask about pic he quickly agreeded that they were 15 % more affective and that would be ok since i had been on doxy for 2 mos. this new infectious dr wanted to start all over with test since she was not knowlegable of igenics labs. she would only try pic for one week . i didnt want to go through that for one week trial. so i let her run her own test . i felt she was mocking me making fun of this support group and not giving me any hope. my husband is not esaly angered but i thought the dr would ask us to leave befor it was over . i was shaking and in so much pain, i couldn't stand the stress .had to lay down and ask my hub. to calm down . in which he told me to shut-up. he finally calmed himself. seeing it wasn't going to help. she then took 8 tubes of blood and told me to come back in two weeks.since i had been sick this long what was 2 more weeks . if i have one more doc ask me whats 2 more weeks again . your going to read about me in the news. i am not easlly moved to tears but i just lost hope today . the drs. in this town are the worst . soooo is anyone out there that has had CRONIC LYME (for over 17 yrs ) well yet? please tell me who you are and how you did it . honestly i would graze in the yard if it would help! thanks,, god is good anyway! deb,
Hi silentstones
Good Grief if I were you I would go to see a lyme specialist if I were you I also had Lyme for 1 1/2 years or thinking back probably longer Infected at least 2 different times Chronic Lyme now but after almost four months on the Pcc Line with antibiotic have returned to work 3 days a week In December I was unable to hardly walk and had a small stroke After 2 weeks on the IV therapy and lots of supplements some meds for the chronic pain and xanax I saw my first step my brain became clear enough to have a normal conversation I have been feeling 80% better Four months ago I was so confused I would get lost going to familiar places At first with the oral meds but then I got worse and had a small stroke Lost alot of cognitive function and was totally pissed at the world and all doctors The lyme doctor was my saving grace With your doctors attitude I would be looking for a new one I know your pain and frustration I went through severe Herx reactions until I didn't know if tommorow was going to come but I rode it out on the Iv and it was well worth it in the long run The different outlooks of Lyme from the Medical community is outrageous and it is impossible for us to treat ourselves so keep pushing to get what you need to get better There is alot of support through this site I actually had to takea home equity loan to cover the expenses but if I didn't I would be in sad shape I do what I have to to get better Lyme doctors don't usually take insurance because the insurance companies had so much red tape but my insurance covered the IV theray 100%
Good luck and keep in touch
