Hi Threader, You said, "I began treating a Lyme- related infection with Antibiotics ?" With an LLMD? Which Antibiotics ? You will not see results after 6 weeks( 6 months min.) and you will not see results with one antibiotic. You need a combination cocktail because borrelia (bb-Lyme)mutates into three forms, constantly evading the poor overwhelmed immune system.
You said you tested positive Lyme on the Igenix test, the gold standard of Lyme testing??
It sounds to me like you have Lyme disease. But as long as you don't have any of the symptoms--muscle aches, blurred vision, arthritic joints that eventually manifest (just to name a few), no harm done. You have found something that works for you.
As I mentioned in another post, Under our Skin--free YouTube award winning documentary--will make you incredibly grateful for *only having Morgellons.
Unfortunately for our family, we tried the ivermectin, valbazen as recommended here on CureZone--by a researcher who acknowledges that "Morgellons is hard to treat"-- and it worked at eliminating most worms, for about a year. It did not eliminate the specks, fibers and fluttering sensations under the skin.
Eventually at about the year and a half point, our family started getting arthritic-like symptoms (weird) and that's when we began to look further afield than Curezone.
Everyone's path is different. But when the person who first "discovered" Morgellons, Mary Leito--a biological researcher--says it's a Lyme co-infection, I'm going to put more credence in that that CureZone commentary. She's been dealing with this crap for years.
Morgellons is the least of my worries right now. It's gone, thanks to the continuing Lyme treatment. (Plaquenil, Minocycline, and Clarithromycin--with pulsed Flagyl) and yes, it will make you herx like crazy when you first start it.
The concern now is the Lyme spirochette's propensity to burrow deep into tissues and remain hidden there in biofilms--thus presenting a reoccurence of Lyme related symptoms even years later.
So folks, said my piece. Moving on because whatever you see here are short term fixes at best, imho.
