This blog is not really about my Lyme Disease but more about raising awareness looking back I realised that I needed to give a brief update.
My story is in the right hand side column of this blog but was posted here
It was about February 2011 that I again stopped taking antibiotics, so far none of the Arthritis or muscle weakness symptoms have re appeared and although some symptoms continue such as facial tingling and sinus problems (which may or may not be Lyme related) I am doing really well. Apart from a couple of weeks clarithromycin for ear infection September time, I have not needed any medication since February 2011.
How many people so disabled with Arthritis and muscle weakness that they get retired early on Ill health grounds make such an amazing recovery on just oral antibiotics?
Winning the Lottery is nothing compared to regaining my health and life.
Daily I am thankful for all those Lyme Advocates who have helped raise awareness of the controversy of Lyme Disease that leaves our Health Departments in ignorance of the science that supports ILADS view and opposes the restrictive Guidelines produced by the IDSA , leaving so many patients Worldwide without diagnosis and treatment that can help them.
