I was diagnosed with Lymes disease from a tick bite in July of 2011. I was very sick for a week but made a full recovery with antibiotics and two weeks of rest

I just acquired Lyme for the second time this week – I still have the bull’s eye rash. Since I already test positive for it from a previous infection, they didn’t waste any time, and put me on doxy for 2 weeks. I have to take it along with Dramamine or I’ll puke all over the place lol. We’re not sure when I was first infected – like many, I hiked, camped and spent much of my childhood outside. I wasn’t diagnosed until after years of treatment for Fibromyalgia. Now we’re not sure if Lyme was masquerading as Fibro, and if I ever had Fibro at all. There’s no way to know, and it’s very frustrating. With this current infection, I’m having ridiculous headaches. Thankfully, I have a doctor who understands, and treats pain the way pain should be treated instead of suspecting drug seeking behavior. I guess you can’t fake a bull’s eye, though. Best of luck and health to all of you – plow through!

i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in the 1980’s but wonder if i was really suffering then with the lyme disease then. the lyme zapped all of my hormones. nothing even touched the chart they were so low. my vitamin d was only 22. it is 64 now after 2 years of high doses i had to take. even my dhea was extremely low.that mimics fibro-low vit.d does. i still am very afraid of the antibiotics i have to take. a couple i just can’t take. i also have some slight mylaria i am being treated for. take care and thank you for replying to my letter.

I recommend reading “Healing Lyme” by Stephen Harrod Buhner. If for no other reason than to really understand lyme’s complexity and unique expression from person to person. Herbs are suggested that you may want to be aware of, and a protocol is offered that I am about to begin and have heard success from 1 person who followed it.

I also see dr. Christensen. He is very good with Lyme patients!!!
