PLEASE HELP!!!!

Postby Nmg882 » Sat May 05, 2012 3:36 pm

So, I finally have been diagnosed with Lyme disease. I have been sick since july2nd 2011, and was finally given a western blot test in february which I had 2 positive bands on 23 and 41. Now in April I took igenex western blot and have bands 23 , 39 , 41 and was also positive for bartonella virus. Now I am CDC positive for Lyme and have been reported bt my dr to NYC dept of health. Anyway I have been herxing really bad from doxycycline, I'm scared that I may have ms. If anyone has suggestions or insight, let me know. Thank you. My symptoms are extreme pressure on my chest hard to get air, pressure on my ears throat and excruciating pain in my legs my muscles contract on their own and also numb buttocks. Thank you for your help : ) ... Nicole

welcome nicole, in the short term you should be able to medicate some of those symptoms with magnesium.
i thought your symptoms all looked like magnesium would be a potential culprit so i went looking for research on magnesium status in lyme patients. here is a case study:
Lyme disease with magnesium deficiency
http://www.jle.com/fr/revues/bio_rech/m ... article.md
"After 5 days the patient was reevaluated and the evolution was slowly favorable, with the disappearance of the inflammatory erythema, but again he had marked hypomagnesaemia (1.20 mEq\L, 14.6 mg\L) and we decided to administer an oral nutritional Mg therapy (5 mg\kg\day). The evolution was rapidly favorable: in the course of 4 days fever, articular pain, asthenia, adynamia gradually disappeared. Leukocytes decreased to 5800\cmm, and Mg was normalized (1.74 mEq\L). The patient came for follow‐up after 6 months, then after one year. Clinical manifestations did not reappear."
there are some other nutritional interventions you can start looking at to help you fight off viruses. selenium and zinc are two examples of antiviral nutrients that happen to be typically lower in ms patients compared to controls. there's a whole little constellation of nutritional issues in ms, above and beyond those two. if you're really unwell, a daily multi-vitamin/mineral probably won't cut it. you might be interested in my 'signature' links below. as you know doubt know, there's lots of discussion here on a wide variety of topics. happy reading and welcome to the forum. if you end up with any questions, ask away. you will find lots of support here.
