I have been feeling unwell enough for some time that i had an appointment with a LLMD in CT
The past year i have been suffering from bad lower back pain that i cannot credit to either arthritis or herniated disks, both of which i have,and i also can't rule out that it's muscular
in addition i get out of breath very easily going up stairs or any incline
sometimes my upper legs hurt, and i definitely have ambulatory issues
i was treated most recently for parasites and have been feeling somewhat better on that front, at least i am more regular and i'm sleeping soundly for 6 hours a night most of the time
the reason i write: before my follow up visit to the llmd, his office called and told me some of my test results are in and his partner wants me to start on ceftin and doxy
you might have an idea if you have had Lyme as long as I have (early 80's, but without a positive test result until 2004) how many abx i have ingested over the years...you name it i have taken it, except for any IV....
i am reluctant to start abx in a void as a result, esp since my regularity is better....do you think i should wait until after the follow up visit when i have had a chance to have a conversation about all of them? or should i start now? i think clearly, my sleep is most of the time better, but this pain and some neurologic symptoms are worse....(i have actually been thinking i might have ALS or MS - yes i know there's probably a Lyme connection)
i am betwixt and between...the follow up is scheduled for 8/16....
