Week 5 of Lyme Treatment

Today I began Week #5 of my Lyme treatment journey. Week #5 mirrors week #3 – for a total of 4 antibiotics. I hate this week. I really dislike Flagyl – it makes me so dizzy and nauseous.

I took my first Lyme detox bath on Friday night and I’m hesitant to ever do another. It was 2 cups of Epsom Salt and 2 cups of baking soda. I had no idea that I would taste the salt in my moth 4 days later! It’s disgusting and awful. My appetite already sucks but I have to choke down food to take some of these meds. But when you add a salty mouth to the mix it’s nearly impossible to eat anything!!!! I really wish some of the Lyme blogs I read would have mentioned this possible side effect of the baths so that’s why I’m writing about it. I didn’t feel like the benefit of the bath outweighed the salt mouth that is still ongoing.

This week is supposed to be the HARD week of treatment, according to my LLMD. I guess it’s a good thing I’m off all week for Christmas but I’m not looking to feeling like crap.

Sorry for the Debbie downer post – just in a icky place tonight.

    Not a Debbie at all! That sounds awful, especially if you didn’t feel it was worth it. Dude – I think you are kicking some serious ass, even if you feel like ass. ❤
