Morning,
well my numbness seems to be spreading to my left foot as well. I woke up this a splitting headache and neurapathy getting worse.

My appt isn't until april 15th. Should I call him to get another appt? Earlier perhaps?

I know this is part of the program, lyme.

I'm just extremely scared by all this. Any suggestions?

I'm on omnicef, doxy, nystatin, floraster.

Janice

I think you are scaring the lyme bugers... you are attacking them with Doxi. and they don't like it.

How much Doxi are you taking?

The road to healing gets rough sometimes before it gets better.

Don't let the fear prevent you from treatment.

Hang in there, and keep fighting. OK?

Maybe you can take Magnessium and B-12 to help control the neurapathy.
It sure helps mine.

I just started giving myself Methylcobalamin IM shots. It has helped my neuropathy by 90%. I look at this as a GREAT improvement.

Morning,
Thanks all. I';m going to try the B12 IM shots. I really thought I needed a script to get the B12 IM.

I will keep fighting. I've come this far which has been 7 months plus at this point.

Does the magnesium really help with the neurapathy?
I'm taking 4oomg of doxy daily plus 6oomg of omnicef as well.

Thanks, Janice

Janice,

I was always afraid of magnesium until recently

when I read a post about this supplement.

Magnesium marked a big improvement in my treatment.

I should have listened to Keebler and others months ago.

Where do you get your IM B12 shots from? Do you need a prescription?

MDW005,

i want to start taking magnesium. my LLMD told me to take it with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

i take my abx with breakfast and dinner.

then yesterday, i read that magnesium binds with abx and makes them less effective.

when do you take your magnesium and your abx? would you mind sharing your pill schedule with me?

thank you!

I give myself the B12 shots. In my thigh every morning. My Dr. wrote me the prescription for it. I had never heard of it until he told me to start taking it. It has to be made at a compounding pharmacy.
