I'm a newbie and have been symptomatic for 3 months...These include tremors, change in taste, sound sensitivity, discomfort around the gall bladder area, muscle twitches, fatigue, and sleep disturbance (usually wake up every few hrs shaking).

As I read this board, it's very disheartening as it seems people are on treatment forever...I just started a few weeks ago. I know it's a individual thing, but I would greatly appreciate it if you can give me some typical times for recovery based on the severity and duration of your symptoms. I've never been a patient person, and this disease will definitely test my patience. Also, I'd love to hear about people that make a full recovery in a short period of time...just looking for some inspiration but trying to keep it real too.

Thanks!

You say you've been symptomatic for three months....How long do you think you've had Lyme?

If you've only had it for 3 months, then your recovery time could be very brief, as in a matter of a few months.

IF you've had it for years, then it will likely take awhile/

At any rate, the sooner you get started the sooner you get well!!

Everyone is individual and things like age, having a healthy immune system, eating a healthy diet, etc affect the recovery time alot.

Welcome!! [Smile]
