Has anyone used hyperbaric oxygen therapy? Did you have good results? What was the cost...any luck having it covered by insurance?

Laura, welcome to the board.

I have a suggestion for you: please copy your text below and start a NEW thrad spelling out the abbreviation since most of us do not know what it stands for & brain fog won't help us ok! You'll get more resonses this way.

Then go back to this one, and EDIT. Then it shows a box at the top where you can DELETE it...check it off and use submit button. Betty G., Iowa

WildCondor - I am discussing HBO treatments for lyme with my local centre. They have not treated lyme before,(I am in the UK) and I am worried about the severity of herx I might get.

The treatment is 1 - 1.5 hours daily for 10 days, despite any herx, but surely it would be better to get over the herx and then restart treatment? Did you stop whilst herxing?

Also, how many treatmets did you have, and is it something that should be done periodically as a top up treatment?

Can you give us anymore info here? I could'nt get the email facility to work - errors kept coming up.

Hi Laura, yes, I understand being new...this board still puzzles me many times also! ha

There is a box in front of this statement, "To delete this post, "check this box, " .... then you can delete the entire post since you originated it.

Glad to see wildcondor replied & has expertise in this for you! Betty

Dontlikeliver - here is a listing of HBO centres in the UK. They are usually run for the use of MS sufferers, but they can be used for other diseases.

I have an email from the Hyperbaric Medicine Unit in Dundee confirming the efficacy for use in lyme (preferably done at 33'.) and they recommend a block of 10 consequetive treatments, 1 - 1.5 hours each. My local centre charges 8.00 each. Die off is to be expected by day 4.

I also found a study done by a William P. Fife, Ph.D on the net - google for info - detailing the efficacy of HBO in lyme.

I also queried the free radical production with HBO treatment, and Dundee confirmed that at the pressure and duration of therapy, this is not a problem.

My GP signed the consent form for me to get this done, so I hope to do this after xmas.
