It's been 6 months now that my LLMD has been information gathering, and today finally he's satisfied that I have Lyme disease. (There's been a couple of botched tests that held things up, very frustrating to wait this long!) I have been on 200mg of doxycycline twice a day, and starting today, I'll be taking 500mg of ceftin twice a day. My story: In 1978, I came down with a terrible flu. It took years to gradually get better. I was in (almost total) remission for a few years, and then got very sick. I had a serious enteroviral infection. I have never been well since then. From then on, I had insomnia, and was later diagnosed FM by tender points. A year and a half ago, I finally found a good doctor who treated me with the Teitelbaum protocol, and brought me close to remission. Then I got hit with something--I'd call it relapse, but it seems like a different illness. There was terrible pain. Just at that time, my doctor moved to a teaching position in another state, and his partner agreed to take me on as a patient. He's a LLMD, and the first appt. told me I probably have lyme disease, just from looking at my record. So, the jury's out, but I either got CFS, then FM, and then lyme--or I got lyme, and it's been progressing.
