There IS Light At The End Of Lyme Disease

Hi everyone my name is Liz and I have been diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease. I'll try to keep the story as short as possible. After months of misdiagnosis rash, some vision and hair loss, facial stiffness, joint pain, severe migraines, insomnia, memory loss depression, chronic fatigue, amongst several more symptoms, doctors telling me its all in my head, supervisor and manager making fun of me by calling me Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles, after over 3 and 1/2 months of antibiotics and steroids drops which instead of making me feel better actually gave me Candida, I finally had enough. Something has got to give. I decided to go a completely different route and try unconventional medicine. I was blessed to find a holistic doctor who has done more for me in one month than what over 11 doctors have done for me in over 9 months. I'm not sure if this will help anyone but if it does I will be so happy and grateful to God. I am placing my faith in God and not the money hungry medical business that have played with my health for a fuller pocket. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask. I may not know much but I do know that I'm feeling way better with these natural herbs. God bless you all and may we all beat this monster victoriously.

Hi Liz,

I just found out last week that I have Lyme also and may have actually had it for 20 years. :( I too have experienced all of your symptoms and even had seizures for 16 years. You mentioned you have been taking herbs? What exactly is your protocol? I'm still deciding which route to take and am not sure about antibiotic cocktails. If I can do it naturally, then I would love your input.

I hope you're doing much better my friend. :)


I have had Lyme disease twice, once in 2006, with Bell's Palsy, and just this summer. I have been treated with the usual course of antibiotics both times, but have been having symptoms like chronic fatigue starting a year or so after the first time. I feel better than I did with active lyme this summer, but it still comes and goes--I feel better for a few days or a couple of weeks, then it starts again with stiff neck, painful lower back, achy muscles, anxiety, depression and deep fatigue. Do you think this could be post lyme disease syndrome?
And what to do from here. My doctor says that the lyme bacteria have been killed off.
I do have a wonderful psychiatrist working with me with supplements, B12 shots, herbs, etc., thank God. But I wonder whether this is something I will just have to live with or will I actually get better in time. I would appreciate anything you have to say.
--I live in MA, where are you?
