    I am sick as an old dog on 1- 100mg. doxycycline. Very weak, extra tired, stomach weird, super depressed and sweaty.

    Don't know if I can continue on this. Then I get a once a week allergy shot and that made me even more ill and all I did was lay down all day as I was so weak. I have been avoiding the sun too.

    I have been dealing with a gum disease too, as that is a bacterial infection I wonder how that affects everything.Maybe that with the Lyme is causeing a dieoff. I need to take care of that soon.Just one of those days when you feel like you are going downhill. I am going to lay off for a few days and maybe try the samento.

    Anyone have some feedback for me. Blessings all

    to hear you are so sick. I have never tried any of the herbel remedies for Lyme's. I am on Bicllin injections. The oral antibiotics made me deathly ill! This is my second round of these injections. They last three months. Two a week.
    Please know that as I am writing this, I am saying a prayer for you, that you get relief...I really sympathize with you.
    I used to get allergy shots once a year, but then I started taking beta blockers and couldn't get them anymore. I am doing better with my allergy's now, can't tell you why. Sometimes the Junipers really get to me.
    Good luck to you.

    Thank you for your kind reply and I can use all the prayers I can get.

    I woke up today and was still drenched with sweat and I really feel toxic, like my body is rejecting something. It feels like the allergy shot really reacted with something and I woke up congested like I had just mown the lawn. I am going to drink a lot of water today but already my depression is lifting. I tell ya me and drugs do not mix:) blessings

    My LLMD says to stop taking ABX if you herx. Bb grows very slowly. In some experiments it takes 8 months to get it to grow in a test tube. By backing off ABX for a few days you won't lose anything. Your brain is saying to take the med but your body is screaming for you to stop.

    I know you had a hard time getting the Doxy but it's not one to use in the summer. The FFC put me on it last May and I was getting a sunburn just driving my Mom-Van down the road. It's got dark windows but I still got a burn with bumps.

    I didn't think I had any co-infections either. Once I got on a different ABX it seems like I've been very sweaty. It makes me wonder about Babesia.[This Message was Edited on 06/19/2007]

    I think you are right about the herxing as I havnt taken any ABX in a while and I don't feel as sick. I still wake up with the sweats though some days.

    I will start again tomorrow and play it by ear. Hope you are feeling better. Blessings
