I'm coming off of a few really good days and feeling fluish today. I slept half the day. I don't know if I over did it or if my body is just sick. Thanks for asking.
Lyme is so tough, even with a doc who is literate. I would guess it would be really tough to find a doc in "LYME FREE" Australia. I did hear that there is a doc from their that just recently joined ILADS. Are you familiar with them?
It seems no matter what treatment I do I get a good 3 day bounce and then decline again. I wonder if you had a similar reaction to sweet Wormwood . Have you read Schaller or Ilads? Both have a lot of guidelines on line that are more aggressive than others.
How long have you had these symptoms? There are so many treatments that help. believe you can take artesunate for longer than sweet Wormwood /artemesinin, but it is more expensive. Just start at a low dose, and stop immediately if you have any ear pain. It is a derivative of artemesia plant same as artemesinin. /there is a source that you can get it I think without a doc.
If you want links for either set of guidelines I posted them a few posts down. Lyme can cause serious mental illness, and encephalitis. I am really concerned for you. Do you know how long ago you were infected?
I got the art from my doc,so no info on getting it without a doc. I know that there are sources saying that taking art and sweet Wormwood for three weeks and then stopping, but you will see in lyme guidelines that it is being used for months at a time under a docs supervision. I don't know what to think, myself. Hope you are feeling better.
