I really like him alot. He came recommended by a friend of a friend. He took me off the Doxy 200 mg per day.

He replaced that with azithromicin 500 mg per day.
He does not think I have any coinfections but did further testing anyway.

I should have asked what kind of testing.

He found a heart murmur. I saw a cardiologist today, who said my EKG didn't appear to be anything to worry about.

Now I am waiting for my Eco cardiogram appointment. I have so much soreness in my chest walls and can feel my heart beating weird and fast.

I have this constant anxiety and panic and weird pains. Pain in my back. I am staying positive and very active. Any thoughts here ?

You're on awfully low dosages. Make sure you do eventually get tested for coinfections.

Hope your echo comes out OK! AND.. that you feel better soon! [Cool]

Lyme and Company can make your heart beat heavy and hard. Maybe do a search in here for that topic. You should find lots on it, as in a lot of people experience this.

Hate to break it to ya... but you have co-infections.

Do your research and see if you can't pinpoint which one/ones.

Most of the testing on co-infections is just as spotty as the lyme testing.


(I tested negative for Bart... but have/had bart symptoms to a T. I treated Bart and got better)

The proof is always in the pudding

I will send you a pm...

Recommend seeing a detox specialist who understands lyme while you are being treated by this LLMD.

Those who get better do treatments with LLMD's then learn how to detox, so they dont herx, and so they can get off abx after co-infections are addressed.

I agree that you most likely have a coinfection...and can get ART tested to identify what you actually have, (blood tests are not accurate yet) see where to begin in your treatment...there are no cookie cutter cures for all this...meaning what works for ne, does not work for all...

possibly need chlorella, chlorestrymine, or another binder with detox support.

Lyme does not seem to leave with antibiotics...it just gets pushed down further, only to show its face later when off the abx. The abx will change other things in your body systems...if used long term. Sort term doses help some individuals...and early lyme.

Lyme is addressed better naturally, if your body is strong enoutgh to get off the initial abx. Some are not strong enough physiclly, and need abx the rest of life just to get through and lilve with their symptoms as manageable. We are all different.

If your lyme is manageable, there are other ways...like Allergie Immune therapy and Natural remedies given by someone who does ART, like Dr. K. Many are lyme free and on nothing now after going this route.....Natural remedies will not inpact your body balance in a negative way as long term abx do...they will be accepted by your body and allow it to move into its unique balance so your immune system can take over and not be on overdrive with all the pathogens and all the drugs and supplements it is dealing with.

Our guts are not working correctly, pre lyme...s therefore, we are not absorbing anything we ingest correctly...we must heal our guts.

Take something for viruses to like monolaurin .We all have low imune system and have to cover for everything.And yes detox is a big part of healing and for me the hardest one .My doc does do anything on that matter and I'm afraid to do it by myself I'think detox is stoping me from geting better.
Take care
