My Dr. took me off of Bicillin about a month ago and put me on Omnicef instead. I'd been on Bicillin for almost 1.5 years. In addition I've been on Tindamax and azithromycin concurrently.
I added Buhner's protocol on Jan 10th, increasing the dosage weekly until I got to the point that I couldn't tolerate the GI effects (around Feb 12th), and stopped the herbs altogether, although at the time, I thought the herb that was the most problem was the sarsaparilla that I'd added for detox purposes.
So for roughly the last month or so, I've been only on the 3 antibiotics. Recently I've started waking up with numbness in my hands and drooping eyes again, and it's getting worse every day. Today I can feel my joints aching and my stamina has been decreasing. Initially, I was doing well on this protocol, but I WAS on Buhner's herbal protocol at that time as well.
It's discouraging, but I'm determined to beat this. I'm going to start Buhner's protocol again at a lower dose, and this time w/o sarsaparilla, (sorry, JimBob. Maybe I'll try adding it back after I know for sure that I'm tolerating the core protocol without problem) Also, I think I have to get serious about buying a rife machine. Which one to get is the question.

The two Rife machines that I usually recommend are the EMEM and the GB-4000. If you can afford the GB-4000 at about $2,400 it is the one to get for the following reasons.
The wave form has been tested by several researchers and it is very clean and accurate.
It can run eight frequencies at once which makes treatment times shorter.
It can sweep eight frequencies at once using the channel sweep function which we are finding is a very effective way to use the machine. It is hard to miss an effective frequency when using this feature. My wife and myself recently stopped our colds in its tracks using cold frequencies and the channel sweep function. We had initial symptoms used the machine and never got any worse symptoms. Gone completely in four days. My son had his cold three weeks with no treatment. Cold viruses are notoriously hard to hit because the frequency is always different, but we hit it enough by sweeping to shorten the duration of the cold.
The EMEM is the best machine for the money. It does not have fancy features but many have used it with good results. You also do not have to contact the machine which is convenient. This is also nice if you treat animals as it is difficult to get your cat or dog to hang on to conductors.
Either machine will help, it is a matter of what you can afford vs convenience. Here is a link to an old discussion regarding different machines. The B-3 mentioned is the earlier version of the GB-4000. It is old information but interesting.
I'm still thinking about which rife machine to get. The GB4000 definitely seems like the most versatile. However, the Doug coil seems to be strongest for eliminating Lyme, so I think I'm leaning that way now. I had bought a noriftrife package quite some time back because it was inexpensive, so I've decided to give it a try while I'm deciding on a more expensive set up.
For Cave, I'm just tired of getting stuck in the butt. 1.5 years of it is enough. Of course, if I try everything else and they all fail, I'll go back to Bicillin injections. I'll have no other choice if I want to survive.
I'm back on Buhner's protocol at a lower dose, and so far I'm tolerating it pretty well.

sorry to thear you are feeling so poorly
I typed a very long post but got blown off before I could click on add reply-darn.
Here's what I can remember-I thought maybe you could try a different abx? When one stopped working I would try another & sometimes it worked. Been on just about every abx I can think of.
If you want to go the herbal route maybe try going very small doses. I have read many people can not tolerate the GI symptoms,herxing or side effects at the full buhner core dosages.
My stomach gave out on me about 8 months ago so still not able to handle abx so I got an EMEM3D rife machine from rife labs. I feel like its may be working. Not 100% sure only time will tell
