it's two weeks till my first LLMD appointment so as of right now i'm just trying to find things to do in the mean time and to get all my questions sorted out beforehand so i know what to ask him when i see him
but im having this problems with supplements that ive had for the past couple years and its getting really annoying
any supplement i seem to take whether it be vitamin D, biotin, olive leaf extract etc... anything ... seems to within a few hours seems to exacerbate my symptoms completely
like i'll immediately feel all my skin, eyes, mucous membranes dry up even more, get more fatigued and depressed, and my GERD gets worse etc...
anyone else like this or was like this at any point and just had to wait to start proper treatment and then fight through the bad point to get it to slowly get better??

I was just reading your post and looking at the length of time you've been ill.
Im not a doctor...so this is just a thought.
often when people start treatment they experience whats known as a herx reaction (bacteria dying off release neuro toxins)and feel more sick at first and some times in cycles like clockwork every few weeks.
I know you havent had treatment yet, but I suppose if your giving something to you body that boosts your immune system at all, it could be bacteria die off.
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
IF...big if, it were me I'd wait out the 2 weeks and get your LLMD's treatment started and thier advice on supplements
Lyme being immuno-supressive can cause all sorts of issues, and in the nervous system the possible reactions/symptoms are nearly endless, as it affects us all differently.
Glad your getting into treatment...all the best
