Discussions that mention xanax

Lyme Disease board


Thanks so much for your thoughtful input Jo.

This morning was quite stressful as my company left a message on my voice mail that they expected to receive paperwork from the doctor on Monday and needed something immediately. Dr. R's staff was kind today when I called them but explained they need two weeks to finish the letter to my employer. From my employer’s position, they have no idea what is wrong with me other then depression for the past six weeks and a knee surgery six months ago, followed by an episode of depression last year which lasted 12 weeks during my divorce. So from what I can tell, they are probably very frustrated for sure. I had to call the office back several times to beg them to get the letter out today, which they confirmed completing. All I can hope for is the letter was not rushed, and was put together in a way that the employer can recognize this is a very serious illness and this is not an employee who is sandbagging.

Jo, as far as the PICC line, it's six weeks. I'm waiting for a call from the hospital. I have the kids this weekend and don't dare start even the oral antibiotics until Monday. I've taken Zithro in the past for strep throat and within two days it felt like electricity was running through my brain, a lot of misfiring and like I had 10 cups of coffee. Even though I had strep, I had to stop the Zithro because of the reaction...so I expect I'm going to be a mess for a while. We'll see. I saw my Psychiatrist an hour ao and he is willing to bump up my xanax which will help with that awful reaction I think. I'll keep everyone posted.
Fantastic! I am so happy for you!!! I hope this regimen works fast for you. Doctor Raxlen sounds like a really interesting person. I think this bioresonance sounds a lot like Autonomic Response Testing (ART). I have seen it done, very interesting stuff. I am assuming that Dr. Raxlen knows you are taking xanax along with all those things he prescribed, yes?

So did your bike ride wait for you?

Yes, I talked to him about the xanax, but his take was that if that is something that works, why switch.
When my body and muscles get very weak, I get a burning sensation in my chest and I feel nauseous with anxiety. I've never heard anyone describe it that way. I feel freakish.

Dr. R and I talked for so long, that I didn't get out until 5:50, so I missed out on the special ride back, but am still very thankful for the experience and won't forget it.
