    does anyone get this???? and a very TIGHT jaw....
    prickling and numbing in lips...pressure and throbing in the temple and up the jaw line; sometimes causing massive headaches.
    numbness in the face?
    pain in the teeth and numbness in gums?
    extreme lightheadedness then a sensation of rocking side to side in a boat?
    distorted vision (eyes feel googlie)? dryness of eyes and mouth?
    loss of joyous feelings???

    and TIGHTNESS like this:
    like someone took a vacuum and sucked all the moisture out of me so i am sooooo tight feeling mostly in arms legs and face (worse on left side).

    that bring me to this question: is anyone WORSE on the left side?

    sensitivity to salt? vitamin b?

    lots of gastric problems: pain, diarhea, constipation, nausea, etc.????

    has anyone started treatment with doxycycline....how long before you feel better...i started 3 weeks ago.

    ty all so much, c

    I have all of these things that you have mentioned, and yest for some reason my left side is the one that is worse, at times i can not even use my left leg or arm.....the weakness is usually worse on that side for some reason! I did start taking doxy about 7 weeks ago, around the 4 week i felt pretty good for a few days and then since then i feel like i am going back down hill. I see my Lyme Doc tomorrow for the first time so maybe i will have more answers after that.....i hope so....i better, because this is all making me crazy!
    Hope you get to feeling better soon, hang in there!

    started before i even found out that i had Lyme, and they have not got any better yet being on Doxy, i have been on that for 7 weeks now. I think that the symtoms were Lyme related and not med related because i had them before the meds and still have them. I think that i just had my first really bad Herx this past week, i felt terrible and so weak.......how do you keep up the treatment if you feel so bad being treated????
    thanks
