I was thrilled to have a hiatus from the tick-borne medications tick-borne illness and it seems during that time, Lyme & Friends (Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia) have uncloaked their protective coverings and decided to run around my insides partying again. As a result, many of the previous symptoms have increased in severity (GI issues, bone pain, numbness, tingling, fatigue, etc).
We sold our home in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, as living at high altitude is not in the cards right now with the Pulmonary-Hypertension and Heart Failure. But...we love our new city-life in Chicago.
My LLMD (Lyme-Literate Medical Doctor) has just prescribed a new regimen of 5 medications, which we use in 2 rotating “cocktails”. The goal is to keep the bugs guessing what is coming and to make the environment very unappealing to them. Perhaps this encourages the microbes stop reproducing and maybe even move out. I am likely to go thru another round of herxing reactions (when the microbial die off causes a temporary increase in symptoms) . Hopefully, the brunt of the herxing reactions (Jarisch-Herzheimer) will be behind me soon and in the meantime, patience, gratitude, and rest are all vital as my body works hard to prevail over the microbes. I choose Wellbeing. I choose to Transcend.
