Hi Lyme Community,

Was just wondering if I could get some feedback. Trying to figure out if I am experiencing a relapse here....

Little background:

Began feeling "sick" Dec. 2010
Went from specialist to specialist for 2 months.
Finally found an LLMD.
Have been with this doc since Feb. 2011. Tried a multitude of oral regimens, was put on IV rocephin in July. Was on it for 6 months! Enabled me to get my life back!!! It was amazing.

Came off IV in Jan. 2012. Been on an oral since then. Felt even BETTER on the oral. Best feeling ever since treatment started!

This past week (Monday) experiencing a LOT of fatigue in legs, like deadweights. Some sharp pains back in the head, lot of anxiety too. Went back to doc this week, he is not worried, says this can happen???

Please offer any feedback. Would be most appreciated.

BTW - Can season changes wreak havoc on symptoms? Also, what about exercise when you havent exercised in like a year????

Thank You.

If you are doing things that you haven't been able to do in a long time...this is going to happen...

After 23 years of being out of sports...I started playing and coaching soccer, and playing basketball...It took me some time to get used to it...

So I started doing yoga - the cheaters way - on the Wii fit...but it was moderate exercise that helped me build up my tolerance to the activity...

Then I started house keeping...which was a lot of work...but I handled it because of the yoga...

Seasons can also effect you too...Although I am in remission...extreme heat still really bothers me...

Ok, thank you. So I shouldn't completely freak out.

Some of these headaches scare me that I havent had in a long time.

Just when I thought IV got me completely better.....

Dr B says you can't get well unless you exercise. He suggests weights...no aerobic exercise.

Have you been treated for coinfections?

Allergy season started early. Maybe this overloaded your system.

Moving this to Medical so you will get more help.

Thanks,

Yes I was. I was treated for co-infections at the very beginning of treatment.

Thanks for the info.

Check into treating parasites/worms which are often an overlooked co-infection of lyme even by LLMDs. A lot of these ticks are carrying the Filarial Worm co-infection as detected in ticks when Burdorfer dissected them early on.

Google parasite symptoms and do a search on here under parasites.
