Lyme Disease Week 2

I just realized that my last post did not say whether or not I definitely have Lyme disease (not Lyme's disease as I thought it was).  Well, I definitely tested positive for Lyme.

For the past 2 weeks I've worked 1 full day.  I missed 3 full days of work because of the flu-like symptoms.  I felt totally out of it another.  I went to work one day this week, only to return home because of nauseousness.  I didn't work a full day today, but that was for other reasons.  However, I did experience most of the symptoms all day.

So what are the symptoms?  I haven't had the joint pain and arthritic symptoms like a lot of people.  However, I do seem to have a constant daze \ fog \ cloudiness \ confusion \ lack of focus \ buzz \ pressure in my head.  I also occasionally suddenly feel exhausted and fall asleep.  Fortunately those were on days that I was home.  The nauseousness seems to be a result of the medicine, which doesn't indicate that it must be taken with food, but clearly it does.

And the lack of focus?  I've been looking at this post for about an hour and I've written 3 paragraphs. Enough said?  Wait, what am I doing?  Yeah, I'm ready for this to be over.

Not only should you take that med (Doxycycline I'm guessing?)with food, you should definitely take it with a good otc probiotic (Like Ultimate Flora 30 billion cu) or it will wreak havoc on your gut. Not only will it wipe out the Lyme it will also reduce the amount of "good" bacteria in your digestive system. My doctor (now ex Dr). I only found that out after my system was wrecked by it and my new doctor explained it to me.
