Treatment for LymeHi. I'm seeking a treatment for Lyme disease. In July, I came down with meningitis. It turned out it was likely the beginning symptom of Lyme disease. The symptoms of the meningitis were:
--Patch of purplish skin behind my right knee
--All symptoms were restricted to my right side
--Double vision periodically
--Pounding in head that sounded like someone pounding on sheets of iron with a heavy mallet
--Periodic stabbing pain like a red-hot poker up the back of my neck and skull
--Strange sensation in right
cheekbone: it was sore, almost 'burning'
--Later, hives developed on my
Seemed to recover from the meningitis but then pain started on right side between ribs and hip. Turned out to be relatively mild case of shingles although the pain required a prescription of Vicodin to allow me to sleep.
Got a stomach ache when I ate anything.Then that went away. Did not seem to be connected to the Vicodin.
Was given acyclovir for the shingles. They cleared up and I seemed to be getting better. Then I got body aches, not so much joints as maybe muscles, especially in the arms and shoulders.And felt generally unwell.
There was a tingling, like 'pins and needles' in my hands, primarily my left hand but sometimes my right. It came and went.
Was diagnosed with Lyme, through Elisa and Western Blot tests. Put on 20 days of Amoxicillin.
Seemed to get better. Then started going downhill again. Mostly the tingling in the hands got worse, shooting up my arms. The achiness in arms and shoulders was back.
Heard about using Ledum 1M for Lyme. Supposedly 1 pellet 3x day for 3 days. Tried it and the tingling was greatly reduced, almost gone by the end of the three days.
Now the tingling is back and getting worse. The achiness is back in my arms and shoulders.
Those are about my only symptoms. I'm especially worried that the Lyme has not been vanquished and is hiding in me, doing damage to my body still.
Can anyone help me?
