lyme meningitis: im feeling sick again?

lyme meningitis: im feeling sick again?

Lyme Disease cannot be cured in 4 weeks. This is a rampant misconception within the medical community, even with infectious disease doctors.

You need to see an LLMD (lyme literate medical doctor). Go to lymenet.org and request the info of an llmd in your area. Someone will email you a list.

I see the best lyme doctor in the world (literally) and the protocol is 7 months of strong antibiotic treatment, often longer.

For more information, watch Under Our Skin on hulu or netflix. It's a documentary about people with lyme disease and will give you the details of why it requires longer treatment and why many doctor's only try to treat for 4 weeks and then stop.

You're feeling sick again because you still have lyme disease. 4 weeks is inadequate treatment. Likely, your doctor is trying but is completely oblivious to this. Lyme disease is the longest living bacteria (6 week life cycle) and also the most complicated bacteria ever studied. It possesses 11 methods of evading the immune system, and lacks both research and a reliable test. It's an illness that has been swept under the rug as far as priority and awareness due to often the lack of being able to prove you still have it due to poor testing accuracy.

Please take my advice and seek the help of an LLMD so you can be treated appropriately and get well. If they pull you off antibiotics right now I can almost guarantee you're going to fall down the hole and get horribly ill again. You need to be on antibiotics for a while, like 7 months or more.

ps: I'm a lyme patient. I know exactly what lyme meningitis is like...i'm so sorry. You can message me on here if you need more help/advice on navigating getting to a good lyme doctor. I know it can be so confusing and really hard when you're so sick. <3
