I am a 47yo woman who was bitten with a tick over 2 years ago. Bullseye rash, positive Western Blot (local lab). Treated with 28 days of antibiotics. Got better then symptoms returned. Treated for 2 more times with symptoms returning after treatment, but feel better on antibiotics.
Bitten again 1 year later, no bullseye rash, dr. would not treat without a positive Western blot (again local lab), so no treatment.
Saw a different dr. who prescribed doxy with some improvement, then no further improvement. Did not try amoxicillin. Did 5 days of steroids with good results, but symptoms came back when off of steroids.
I now have severe symptoms that cycle: extreme fatigue pain in different locations, sometimes joints, sometimes muscular poor memory and brain fog uncoordinated (fall easily) numbness in arms break out in sweat upon exertion
I have not had Elisa or any other testing done besides the standard Western blot.
Looking for a LLMD who will also prescribe alternative treatments.
