Lyme Treatment Day 1

Day 1.

Lyme 2

Yesterday was the first day of my Lyme Disease treatment. After my appointment last Thursday, I prepared the huge list of medicines and organized the 30 pills that I have to take daily into little boxes.

In hindsight, I should have probably written this post BEFORE day 1, because now, being 24 hours in, I am a jittery anxious mess. My assumption is that it’s just my body getting used to the heavy dose of antibiotics and neurological drugs that are coursing through my system.

My LLMD (Lyme MD) – told me that weeks 5-7 would be the worst, so I had no expectations that I would feel like this so early. Honestly, I feel like a big ass wimp.

My thoughts are all scattered, I spent the whole night gritting my teeth and dreaming off and on about dinosaurs with no skin, just bones.

I think the drug that is making me feel this way is the Low Dose Naltrexone.

We will see. Let’s pray that the rest of this week gets better as I adjust. I am so grateful I have this week off work.

    I really hope that this reaction is temporary and things start to stabilize soon. ((hugs))
