Last night I got to sleep late and woke a short time after - then stayed awake all night. Just as I dozed off this morning - had to get up and go to work!

This morning I got up and was totally dizzy, light-headed, had louder than usual buzzing in my ears -
AND
What sounds like "Sand" crashing like waves around in my head!

Gosh it was awful - felt sea sick!

I'm only on Doxy 400mg and NO/OONO supplements.
Anyone else get this? Lasted about three hours.

Best of Health
Peedie

Have you tried the ginger capsules, yet ?

What does it mean when you say you are on: " NO/OONO supplements " ?

Keebler HEY!

I did not buy ginger capsules - should I?

After your other post I went out and bought ginger/lemon tea by Celestial Seasonings.

I was a good girl the first day and drank it. But - it has an odd - not so good taste so I haven't had any since. Maybe if I add honey?

Is this what I need? I'm already taking 30 something pills and capsules a day. [Smile]

You may want to contact your doctor. Is your hearing ok?

Keebler - NO/ONOO is a carefully ordered array of vitamins and minerals stuff to treat the Nitric Oxide Inflammatory Cascade or pain cycle.

As for my ears - I have not noticed any effect on my ability to hear. No feeling of "fullness", but then again it is a new symptom for me.

I did notice after browsing through Keebler's link that asprin and Advil (ibuprofen) are ototoxic.

I have been taking Advil pretty regular the last few days. I'll drop the Advil and take only one asprin a day and see what happens.

Thanks all,
Peedie

Yes, and tylenol is liver toxic - and liver toxic stuff can also be ototoxic.

Oh, aspirin can be taken at a certain dose and be okay, but the instant any ringing in the ears or other vestibular symptoms pop up, it should be dropped down to where there are no side effects.

That said, IMO, I don't think lyme patients are safe with aspirin for a couple reasons. 1: anyone on abx usually has a pretty raw stomach lining in the first place. Aspirin can cause stomach bleeding in anyone, so lyme pts are more at risk of that.

2. For anyone with an infection/fever, aspirin should be avoided so as to prevent Reyes syndrome. Especially children, but adults, too, can get this and it can be devastating.

Ginger tea is good but it's not at the strength as a capsule would be. I would use both - but not too late in the day if you are on of those from whom it is a bit stimulating. It's not for everyone, though. Some use it to reduce pain and take it before bedtime.

As for taste, if you have every had to take liquid magnesium you would never care how bad anything tasted if it worked ! Just shoot it and follow with water if something is not to your liking.

I find, though, that even cold ginger tea burns my mouth. If that is the case for you, capsules will avoid that.

However, in tea, a drop of Sweet Leaf "Stevia Clear" will sweeten it up and will not contribute to candida. You can find Stevia in the health stores or supplement section of some natural foods groceries. You can also order it online.

It does not have FDA approval as a sweetener because the chemical sweeteners (some of which are toxic) pay off the FDA.

You can search Stevia - and many other things -

at http://oneearthherbs.squarespace.com The One Earth Herbal Sourcebook (Tillotson).


There is a page on Ginger at One Earth book, too. And you'll find lots at PubMed- www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez


Back to stevia, Just a drop of liquid or a very tiny bit of powder. The liquid has less of a sharp taste.


I'm not familiar with NO/ONOO - you might ask your prescribing person for that if ginger would interfere. Generally, ginger is a great help to reduce inflammation.


You might also benefit from vestibular training by a LL PT through a LL neurotologist, who is someone you should see anyway. Not everything is lyme, but you still want a specialist who knows all about it for reference.

Thanks for all the help and support! I will ask my LLMD about the Ginger capsules. In the meantime, I think the Lemon/Ginger tea with sweetner is the way to go.
No sand sloshing around in my ears today. Hooray!!
