I'm about 95% or more. I've been sick for about 2 1/2 years. I couldn't use ABX. So I saw a lyme literate dentist/physician November of last year and he can prescribe ABX. He uses ART and I don't test very well for ABX. So I started using MMS and seeing this wonderful dentist. If I didn't see this dentist, I'm sure I'd be disabled right now.

After having amalgams out and cavitations treated ending in July. I decided to get a lightworks LED. And continued to improve. Then I got a biotensor and I have to say the combination of lightworks and biotensor are a powerful combination.

I do my own energetic testing with a biotensor and according to my testing I'm lyme free.

The only supplement I'm taking now of any significance is fish oil. No probiotics! No multivitamins! nothing but diet and herbal teas.

My next step is to get to remission. By the way the approach I took, took about 1 year. If I hadn't had the dental issues it would have been much quicker.

Slowly but surely. I'm going into my 4th year of treatment on oral abx. Started with Biaxin, Doxy and Plaquenil. I have also done Tetracycline. Currently I'm on the Biaxin and Plaquenil and will add the Tetra to it, which is something I've not done before.

I also go to PT weekly which helps immensely.

Been in treatment 7 months; just started to notice slight improvement in the 6th month after treating for Babesia. I feel about 20 to 30% better. I am having a flare up of pain since being off antibiotics for almost 3 months, so will probably have to go back on antibioitics. But overall there is some slight improvement in 7 months of treatment. I was ill for 2 years before starting treatment.

well, I've been sick for about 3 years (onset of symptoms was slow for me). Took me about 18 months to get a diagnosis and I've been treating since.

Prior to my diagnosis my symptoms were very cyclical...somedays felt normal and others I felt like I had the flu and was functioning at about 25%. Started treatment and hit rock bottom. Hospitalized and couldn't function. First few months of treatment were not tolerable but I somehow pushed through.

Today my symptoms are less cyclical. Good days aren't as good as pre-treatment BUT bad days aren't nearly as bad as before. Most of my symptoms are gone except for NAUSEA which is with me 24/7 (has been my worst symptom since day 1). Overall I am so much better than I was a year ago and I probably routinely funtion at about 80%.

I've taken a variety of meds in different combos:

Doxy
Minocycline
Biaxin/plaquenil
Mepron
Ceftin
Zithromax
IV Rocephin
Rifampin

It is likely that the nausea that still remains for me is not a symptom of an active infection anymore so I continue to pursue other answers besides lyme and Co.

I came down with migratory joint pain in 8/05. Two doctors diagnosed lyme and I began treatment. 5 mths later I was housebound with inflammation in every joint.

When I was diagnosed with rheum. arthritis, I found many possible causes among them bacteria, leaky gut, heavy metal toxicity. I found a doctor to work with me from this angle and he saved my life.

Changing my diet was the first major improvement and that alone allowed me to return to work. After one year with this doctor, the rheumatologist declared me nearly dormant. That was a happy day. 04/07.

In 6/07, I began working with a rheumatologist who believes in infectious causes. She is a member of ILADS, is LLMD and practices CAM therapies as well as traditional medicine.

Today I live painfree. Dr feels confident we are putting my RA into remission. Her tests found me positive for babesia, mycoplasmas, CPN, EBV & H.Pylori. We continue to attack these to this day.

However, just as important was a gene test that revealed my very poor ability to manufacture glutathione. Glutathione is vital to our bodies as it is the master detoxifier. Chronically ill people are notoriously low in glutathione and the build up of toxins creates many of our symptoms.

I will take artificial forms of glut the rest of my life. Eating cruciferous vegetables is a great booster of my natural production of glutathione. See this article. Very important.

I was sick for 42 years when I was dxd with Lyme. Took abx for 4 yrs straight. Have now been off meds for 4 yrs.

Took just about everything. Had babesia too. All orals.

It does get better but it's a different experience from recovering from the flu or a cold in that the recovery is glacial and barely noticeable day to day. It's probably better to measure progress in quarters or 6 month periods. Some people use the analogy that it's like peeling away layers of an onion. It takes that long as the bb bacteria has one of the slowest replication times in nature, not to mention the coinfections adding to the mix.

My wife was on abx from Aug 2007 to Jan 2008 (she was CDC positive), since then only herbs. She's mostly 100% back to normal, with some cyclic fatigue around her monthly period. She's strong enough and is traveling abroad right now.

Think I'm close to 98% symptom free, Yay!!!

I contracted lyme last fall and started symptoms in January of 08.

Labcorp test CDC positive IGM bands #23 & #41. CD 57 a 45.

Started treatment May 08. One month doxy, one month biaxin, 4 months zith, and currently on rifampin and cat's claw, 1.5 months.

My supplements seemed to have also helped me a great deal. They are lots of refrigerated probiotics, oregamax, olive leaf, grapefruit seed, ag immune booster, virastop, bromelain, magnesium, super b complex and a rainbow lite womens one vitamin.

I am not sure how long I was sick prior to diagnosis.

At least 5+ years.

Two years and two months of all orals,

I am getting better. [Smile]

My speech is the best it has been in over two years.

This is big for me as I am a Speech Pathologist.

I've treated Lyme, babesia and bartonella.

I still have a ways to go, but am clearly able to think clearer,

Speak well (almost normal), memory is getting better, joint pain diminished, etc.

Hang in there. As Lymetoo has said many, many times,

It isn't a sprint, it is a marathon.

Pace yourself.

Try to keep your goals small and reachable.

Not huge goals, just small ones.

Getting through Walmart without panicking or feeling like I was

Going to pass out was one I made for myself.

I do that without a problem most days.

Keep the faith and your spirit up.

Wait! [Eek!]

That is what we are here for. [Big Grin]

Hugs,

Geneal

I am currently going through a rough time herxing, but in general, I am getting better. I was sick sick sick.....still am, but I know I am improving because some symptoms that I didn't think they would ever go away are getting better.

The derealization and cognitive impairment CAN get better from antibiotics for some, but it can take lots of patience and perseverence. I had to strike out many times before finding things that worked. These symptoms are getting better though.

It can happen! Yes, it can!

Currently going through a babs herx from agressive babs treatment (agressive for me at least; mepron, zith & art), so have been very tired this week.

Otherwise, my health has improved greatly from the usual mix of beta-lactams, macrolides, plaquenil, and mepron, along with a healthy diet, exercise and rest, and no alcohol.

Treatment for TBD's takes patience and perseverence. The gain in health: priceless.

I'm doing a lot better from where I started.

I was very ill. I'm having a lot of good days now. I still have bad days and I'm still herxing hard on Mepron and abx (though I have seen the biggest strides made with Mepron. Rifampin coming in second), but altogether I'd say I'm usually at 55% - 90% depending on the day. My good days are sometimes almost completely normal, except for a few twitches here and there and a few other minor symptoms.

My bad days can be really difficult unfortunately, but that's usually due to herxing.

On good days I feel normal, and bad days I feel about 65% normal...and on horrible days...I feel like death warmed over.

Ive taken doxy (2 mos), then onto tindamax, biaxin, omnicef...now just biaxin low dose and a ton of supplements... but that could change as the past month has been worse for me. Luckily I see my LLMD again in January...

The problem is that I get spoiled by feeling normal and when I have a bad day, it ****es me off and feel miserable, jealous, and envious of the rest of the world who are all going about their lives without a care in the world like what we endure.

Living in pain is no way to live...but we have no choice... keep the faith...keep pushing on...

A xmas wish...that all past, present and future lymies will be cured...and that all ticks will be evaporated from the planet....

I originally was diagnosed with remitting/relapsing CFS. October 07 had an Igenex Lab test and saw an LLMD in MO. I've been on abx since then. At my worst was functioning 15% and felt like I was dying.

Currently, I'm 85%+ and returned to work in August after a two year medical leave.

I coultn't tolerate very many abx. It was trial and error. Progress was up and down. Methylcobalamin B12 shots twice weekly, and 1/2 of Armour pill helped with energy.

I take 1/4 Flagyl twice a week along with nystatin daily.

I pray that I stay in remission.

CherylSue

Update: Had a relapse with stomach virus and cold after Christmas 2008. Stay tuned.

I have been searching past posts regarding
rife and feel encouraged when I read the number of members who have stated they were getting better after four months of rife. Often the posts I have read indicate they are using a doug coil machine or a GB 4000.

Dx with Lyme in 2002.

Abx for approximately 2+ years.

Been off abx for 5 years.

Rife for maintenance for approximately 2 years so far.

Have some residual symptoms, mostly tinnitus and arthritis that can be a problem, but this new normal is workable.

I take lots of supplements/herbs/probiotics/yogurts, etc.

Thanks to all the knowledge I learned here, all the Lyme friends, and Dr. C (MO).

Hi! I was sick as heck for 18mths. Have been on minocycline for about 40 days. Feel back to normal. Some joint and back pain, otherwise doing GREAT! Meds: 200mg minoclycline, 60mg cymbalta, 80mg lovenox injection, 1mg valium, 1/2 atelonol pill (for fast heart rate). I never thought I would beat this and was so devasted about how my life had changed. Last night I was out with friends and had several glasses of merlot. I was unable to tolerate alcohol for over a year. My Dr. does not know if I had Lyme or a cousin to Lyme. But the good news is it responded very well to minocycline. Will be on minocycline till summer. If you get the right abx you will absolutely get well. No doubt about it. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! =)

I forgot to add my tests were igm band 41 positive and cd 57 was 14. (8-08) Also, unfortuntely the people who are totally cured just don't ever want to think about the hell of lyme disease again and when you are better you almost don't want to go on this site bc you were so traumatized by the terrible symptoms. I am better 99%, and I am 36. So, stick with it. My fisrt 10 days on minocycline was very very bad herx wise. But I pushed through bc I thought either it will kill me or I will get better. Stick with it and push through. Merry Christmas!

Sick since 1998. Misdiagnosed many years.

Tried homeopathy, chinese herbs, american herbs, etc. first. Got some, but not measurable results. I must say that the homeopathy saved me from really crashing, though.

Diagnosed June 2005. ABX started Nov. 2005 for 9.5 months. Then relapse Feb. 2007. Been on ABX ever since and feeling about 85%.

Just had all amalgams removed and have a wonderful dentist that I also hope will help me in the transition off antibiotics (which I will start in january).

Lyme and Bartonella

First round of ABX: Levaquin, then Biaxin/Rifampin, then Zith, flagy and Bicillin LA

Second round: Biaxin, Malarone, then 5 months Rocephin, then Zith, Flagy, Bicillin LA, then Zith, Bactrim DS and Bicillin LA.

Life is good. Horseback riding 3-4 times a week, pilates, gym workouts, still working, etc.

Wish I could say I was. I'm stuck in neutral here. However, I'm not on a very aggressive protocol. One positive is that I'm not getting much worse. Fatigue is the central issue along with indecipherable endocrine issues...

I'm better....almost 2 years into treatment. It's been really rough.

Somedays it doesn't feel like it, as I've kept a journal and it seems like the "new or worse" is almost equal to the "improved or gone". But I haven't treated babesia yet and I know that holds a lot of folks back from getting well. I treated Lyme and bart, had really bad bart/BLO.

2 of us in this household were bedridden and now in semi permanent remission...a tune up now and then is required but it's manageable.

NO attention to diet or forces from out of the ether. A few supps...mg and milk thistle mainly.

Just orals but admittedly you have to have a cast iron stomach to do what we did.

Me!

I got sick in 99/2000 but wasn't properly diagnosed until October 2007.

Did oral antibiotics until March 2008, then did IV through May/June 2008. I've been back on the orals, up until last month.

This month I'm completely off of antibiotics, and feel great.

Unfortunately my family has not had the success many of you have.

It's great to read all of your success stories! I'm happy for you!
