Over the years, I've heard so many people asking, is there any hope of full recovery from chronic Lyme?

It is to those people that I write this. At about this date in the year 2000, I woke up one morning in Maryland with a deer tick embedded in my thigh. I developed an EM rash around the bite, but was denied antibiotics by the doctor I consulted.

In May 2001, I had become so sick I could hardly get out of bed for at least half the days of each month.

By May 2002, I was several months into treatment for Lyme with oral and IV antibiotics. My herxes were so severe, the herxes nearly killed me a couple of times.

I required treatment for Lyme and coinfections for years. I suffered from many neurological symptoms, endured several bouts of encephalitis and meningitis, had severe fatigue and joint pain, experienced pituitary malfunctions, and cardiac problems. My LLMD stated several times that I was probably in the category of people who would require maintenance antibiotics for the rest of my life just to survive.

This May, I am now off of antibiotics and all other treatments for four years. AND, I just graduated from nursing school, with honors.

Chronic Lyme can be beat!!!! Don't ever give up.

Thanks for your well wishes, everyone! I hope my story gives some of you encouragement.

I don't get on this site often anymore since I am well, but I have some close friends who have recently been diagnosed, and that got me thinking about all those who are still in the trenches, looking for hope, looking for the right diagnosis, right doctor, right treatment...

You are ALL in my thoughts and prayers. Don't ever give up!! I hope to read YOUR success stories one day.

P.S. trialthetelymie, I tried to answer your PM, but your mailbox is full.

That is awesome! I find this very encouraging. Thank you for sharing this with us.

You are exactly where I aspire to be. I plan on going to nursing school as soon as I am well enough to do so. After everything I have been through I want to get into the medical field.

Thank you again for sharing this and giving us encouragement!!

Thanks again for all the congratulations!! Studying for NCLEX (state licensing exam) now, and excited about what the future holds.

If only we had a good LLMD near where I now live--I would love to work for one and give back to the people affected by Lyme in that way.

P.S. nonna05, your mailbox is full.

What wonderful news to hear. Some of us feel close to losing hope. It is so uplifting to hear stories like yours. God bless you.

Who was your doc? What treatments were the ones that turned things around for you?

Thanks for taking the time to post.

I can understand why people may want to know how I got well. I remember all too well how it feels to be too ill to function so much of the time, to feel lost in some hostile, uncharted territory, desperately searching for someone to draw me a map out!

Obviously, what worked for me will not necessarily work for everybody, and I'm sure there are treatments I didn't try that may be quite effective.

That being said...since 2002, I have been treated by 3 different LLMDs. Without giving out names here, I'll just say the first was in Maryland, and after a year he asked me if he could refer my case to a prominent LLMD who was practicing in NY at that time.

I became a patient of the NY LLMD for several years, but after moving further south, I transferred to another prominent LLMD who is now practicing in DC.

I was also under the care of a Lyme literate endocrinologist for several years.

As for the treatments that worked for me: I did many rounds of antibiotic therapy, in various combinations of orals, IV, and IM injections.

I was evaluated repeatedly for coinfections, tested positive and was treated for Ehrlichia and mycloplasma pneumoniae in addition to Lyme. I also did several rounds of Mepron and mefloquine for a Babesia coinfection.

I did mostly pulse therapy in courses of varying lengths depending on the severity of my illness at that time, and the severity of my herxes. I took antibiotic "holidays" at intervals prescribed by my LLMD.

I took a lot of supportive supplements (but only those recommended by my LLMD!), including Mg, multivitamins, CoQ10, fish oil, omega 3 fatty acids, B12 injections, and others as the need arose.

Under the care of my endocrinologist, I started treatment for severe thyroid, adrenal, and growth hormone deficiencies.

I maintained a low carb, high protein diet that included lots of raw veggies and lean meats.

I exercised regularly.

I sought help from my doctor as needed for pain and sleep problems.

And I prayed--a lot!!!

I think that my therapy followed Burrascano's treatment guidelines pretty closely, and for me, it worked. It took about 7 years of treatment before the last of my symptoms finally fell away, and the relapses stopped.

I think the number one most important aspect for me, and for everyone is a POSITIVE ATTITUDE. Keep a sense of humor, and celebrate the victories each day, no matter how small!

I hope this helps a little! [Smile]

You're right we can feel so helpless at times ,even though we are taking everything plus the kitchen sink in..

Time just goes so slow waiting for a sign of wellness and yet a week will go by and I'll still think I just missed a day or two,,.

It's the weirdest thing being held down.....

I just want to take my Happy Camper pill and get on with the show... Hit at 48-49 ish. Waiting ,in my mind to start there and catch=up..Yeah right! [Roll Eyes]

I am so glad when I can help and/or encourage some people here!! It breaks my heart to hear of so many people struggling so much. Those of us who have found success of any type in this battle against Lyme all need to pay it forward.

Hopefully, we will all beat this disease eventually!

Congrats!!!!

I love nurses who have or have had Lyme, they make the best healthcare practitioners.

My sister had Lyme and also graduated Nursing school with honors thereafter.

Continued success and thanks for posting, we all need the encouragement.

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.

What field will you specialize in? Any interest in the Lyme treatment arena?

If I could change professions I probably would and go into research.

How bad would you say your twitches and tremors were while you were sick? Were they from head to toe? Did you feel like something larger was in your body and squirming or moving around?
