I did do a search but wondered if anything had changed since 2009 when i tested postive.

I was treated with oral and iv antibiotics for about a year before my dr stopped treating lyme. I am now not a total zombie which is awesome but i still live a very tiny life.

I was actually willing to accept that as damage done but my body is getting damaged more and i am beginning to get a little scared so would like to re-test and consider going back into treatment but i want to do it right.

I would also be really interested to hear if anyone else has had any experience of increasing damage to thier body. Sorry this is so long but i wanted to indicate some of the damage.

Thanks for any help.

One year of treatment is not much, so you likely do need more. More testing is not usually needed.

Is your question about how long to take abx before the test?? IF so, it's 3-4 wks and then off for 10-14 days prior to the test. Take a good dosage of doxy .. like 200mg twice a day.

Yes, that is exactly what i am asking (my brain gets a little muddled).

I can't get anyone to give me the antibiotics but i have some azithro would that be good enough.

To get treatment i will need to go to the U.S as i don't know of anyone treating here anymore so was thinking testing first but you have a valid point as the cost of the test would probably pay for an initial visit to the U.S.

Thanks for the reply, i get so stressed just thinking about treatment again, i find it really scary.
