Hi Nanie-I'm still trying to determine my next course of action. I'm still extremely frightened of the abx route . n making your decision, did you gather good evidence that the abx does work for late state lyme? i.e seen good input on the message boards and talk to those who have recovered? Did/do youhave neuro symptoms? Did you doctor suggest IV abx? This neuro disease and the aggressive abx treatment are both terrifying to me. Did you have severe herxing on the abx? My recent experience with flagyl ( I could not function for about a week after I stopped it and also found it totally toxic to my system (turned my tongue white/yellow even though I was on diflucan so I don't think it was yeat)) has me wondering if I will be able to function on abx. I need to work (work from home) and be there for my family. Thank you!
