    I'm worried about you suffering and being bedbound for the past 3 years with lyme. Is there any way you could see or phone an LLMD? You need to be on antibiotics even if it's a small dose and increasing over time. Please let us know.

    Has your LLMD ever mentioned INTRAVENOUS THERAPY. It might work better for you if you can't tolerate the orals. What has he recommended for you?

    If been treating for lyme with some form of abx (combinations) for 1 year now.

    Dolphin,

    So sorry you are so ill.

    You need to try to get in contact with another llmd. There are so many differetn meds that can address Lyme. Have you been tested and treated for coinfections? The bruising can be from a coinfection.

    Healing thoughts come your way!
