I was treated for LD back in 2009/10 for about 9 months total. Also tested pos for bart.

Recently my symptoms have been getting worse and worse. Over the summer I was sick several times with strep, the flu and viral meningitis. I think my immune system took a very hard hit and encouraged whatever bugs are in me to regain a stronghold and proliferate.

I know this sounds strange, but I have the sensation of worms crawling around my brain at the base of my skull / neck. I can actually hear sounds from my neck sometimes that are hard to describe (and believe), but sound like crunching/squishing.

I am currently a university student in Ann Arbor and there is a 0% chance I can see an LLMD - I cannot afford it and also do not have a car to drive to find one.

I know what combos worked well for me back in '09/'10, since I visited 3 different LLMDs then. I also have done a ton of research on combinations and at this point am truly desperate and ready to self-medicate.

The past week I was having trouble even sitting through class. I was so dizzy and felt like I was going to have a seizure. Also been experiencing intracranial pressure which was gone for a long time + orthostatic hypotension.

I have a very strong intuition that parasites are implicated, mostly because of the squirming sensations in my brain and also heart problems.

By great luck I found a small stash of Zithromax recently. Someone was moving out of my apartment complex and put a box by the dumpster of a bunch of food, supplements and medications. I found 12 pills of 250mg/each Zithromax in blister packs within expiration date.

I want to get more Zithromax and also Albendazole which I have been reading a lot about for the systemic parasites.

I was wondering if ANYONE can give me info on ordering drugs from Mexico or Canada, such as a reputable pharmacy. Or if you have another suggestion on acquiring them please PM me.

I've looked high and low for the Albendazole and only could find some online, in tablet form, for farm animals. I have never tried animal drugs but again, from desperation am not completely opposed to it. However it ships from Ukraine and that is what concerns me most.

If you have any sensitive suggestions please feel free to PM me and thank you.

My father in law used to use Canada Drugs. I have no idea if they are still in business.

I am not suggesting anyone else do this, but I've used veterinary meds on myself multiple times when I couldn't afford care and didn't have insurance. You don't need to order from outside the US... I order veterinary supplies (for rescue birds) from Thomas Laboratories (they have fish and bird antibiotics) -- and a lot of other vet supplies don't require a prescription.

Another option to consider is herbal antiparasitic formulas -- and herbs to treat Lyme and coinfections, too. A lot of people have done well with Humaworm for parasites.

@minimonkey thank you for your input! Appreciating any outside opinions at this point. As we well know, sometimes it's hard to trust yourself when in the eye of the storm with this stuff.

As you're a poor college student and we are poor retired people, we have something in common...no money for expensive drugs. My clever husband calls the drug companies and pleads his case. They might require a letter from your doctor so you need to find one to do that for you. Even a school clinic might help you do this if they see you suffering.

While you look for drugs, buy all Buhner's books and read them.

They may give you an inspiration to look for alternatives.

I forgot to mention that you sound like you have what is"lovingly" referred to as"Lyme neck". It Craigs and friends when you turn it, right,?
An old and wise acupuncture doctor in SF told me about it before I even knew I had Lyme. He told me to be careful to put pillow under it at night.
I also get the creepers in my scalp. If you put your finger tips on the pulses, you can feel them vibrate. Hold it there a little while and you'll feel it subside. Then move to slightly different spots on top, front of head and temples. It might explain why ac doc put so many needles there. I learned this trick from very wise, experienced physical therapist.
