Hi all,
I am asking you, my friends, to tell me if this is normal.

1. Was at a wedding the other night, drank too much. My usual night whole body tremor, was present.

2. I had a light form of the shakes, all day the following day.

3. For a big guy, it takes a little whiskey and I am smashed.

4. I have not had an obviouds herx aside from headache.

5. I seem to be feeling better, rather, vacant of the severe symptoms from my past that were MS-ish. (at least for now)

6. When it is cold, my body gets REALLY shakey.

7. When I do a good morning, arms in the air stretch-my whole body shakes/tremors but it feels good.

8. I have short term memory loss, a lot of the time. But, my mind is overwhelmed.
9. Internal vibration waxs/wans.

10. I can pretty much pee again without a problem.

11. My ears itch constantly, feels like things are crawling in there. ESPECIALLY IN THE LEFT EAR.

12. The wax build up of the left ear, has a strange scent.

OK, someone help John out...talk to me! [Smile]

Well, all I can say is Alcohol for me (and a large percentage of Lymies) turns the spirochetes on bigtime, my lyme was 10 fold times worse when I drank. I haven't in over a decade now.

I drank 2 bloody Mary's a month ago and woke up the next moring with left arm numbness and my fingers were moving on their own. It was eerie. I felt horrible the whole day. Now I'm afraid to drink.

John,
I may have a suggestion for the ear.
Put a couple drops of hydrogen peroxide in the ear canal, and let it fizz and bubble for a couple minutes.

Use a folded tissue on your fingertip to blot up the liquid as you turn your ear down towards the floor when you're finished.
I use a Q-tip to finish drying out the ear canal.

I use about 1 cc, and have figured out how much in the cap of the hydrogen peroxide bottle is just right.
Use the 3% stuff, from the drugstore or the grocery store.

This should loosen up the wax (cerumen) and kill bacteria.

I've heard of people having yeast in the ear canal, that caused intense itching.

Next time you have a doctor appointment, ask him/her to look in your ears with the otoscope.


Regarding the alcohol, your liver is probably working hard detoxing the endotoxins of the dead bodies of the spirochetes.

It's probably detoxing the antibiotics also, and any other meds you're taking.

When you add alcohol to the mix, it's likely to ask for overtime pay.

BTW, are you still taking the Hoodia?

Carol

I decided to quit drinking recently. I would always feel 10 x worse the day after drinking, even if I only had a couple!

When I was younger (I'm only 31) I could drink a ton and feel like a million bucks the next day. Those days are over. [Frown] I miss my wine but it's just not worth the price I pay.

I get worse tremors the day after I've drank too.

When I was at my worst, I couldn't touch alcohol.
One time, about 18 months into treatment, and on doxycycline at that time, I had my first NORMAL, i DO NOT have lyme or one single symptom- day.
So, what did I do?
I drank. My friends were graduating ( I was suppossed to be) and I was upset.
I didn't just get sick. I relapsed. Flat out relapsed. Big time.
And all I had was a beer and my favorite- dark sambuca.

In all honesty, I've been drunk everynight for the last past year after 8 pm, on beam and pepsi. No lie. I havent relapsed and in FACT,

i swear to GOD that the whiskey helped me. ( Im not kidding). May have something to do with it thinning out my .
So my advice is drink for a year straight.

IM KIDDING. I don't drink any longer. After a year, it did catch up to me. Ya think? [Wink] Irish too, btw.

Anyyyywho,

the itchy ear thing sounds like yeast. I buy mullein/garlic ear drops. Works GREAT.

Carol in PA and Lost

I have had the itchy ear (right) since initial lyme in 96. Thought it was excema. Went to EN&T (otolarygologist) and found nothing, but he also suggested the drops.

It's definitely a part of the symptoms that reoccurs with me. Particularly when my immune systems drops. Usually just prior to that time of the woman's cycle.

QUESTION:????
I have just been taken off antibiotics. What is it about drinking alcohol that is a NO-NO. Other than the worst of hang overs and shakes from being a lymie?

The sugar??

Smoking? I have been smoking since worst symptoms and being infected again in 2004(babs).

Thanks,

--------------------
