I was successfully treated with Flagyl in February by a great doctor in New Jersey. All of my symptoms, which included mental fogginess, rib pain, muscle aches, lower back pain, and widespread twitching, went away within a month.
Recently, I've put my body through considerable stress. I've started law school--which means all nighters, poor diet, psychological stress, etc.--and I've had the flu within the past few weeks.
In the past few weeks, I've noticed that my widespread twitching has returned, as have the foginess, some of the muscle aches, and to a lesser extent the back pain.
Given the timeframe, does this sound like it could be a recurrence caused by my lowered resistance and increased stress? I remember reading that the spirochetes can become active again in such circumstances.
Should I make another appointment with the LLMD? I would have done that first, but it's rather expensive, so I thought I'd throw it to the community first. What do you all think?
