Just an update, I am almost certain this is lyme and co-infections and I have had it a long time. I did the western blot test and came back reactive for bands 41, 58, and 66. How I finally figured this out is that I have been studying lyme for 6 months now and learned that both amoxicillin and Augmentin are used by lyme specialists to kill lime (along with other specific antibiotics), and it was these two lyme killing antobiotics that I had strange and scary reactions to! I have taken Keflex as well, no reaction, but these two ... bad reactions to my nerves. With Augmentin I lost strength in my arms and legs for 2 weeks. With amoxicillin I lost the ability to walk for a few weeks, with numbness and twitching. So any way I learned from Dr. Jernigan's blog that when these bacteria are killed they release serious nerve toxins.
Another clue was that I started on Tick Recovery and Biofilm formulas (based on Buhner's protocols) and the constant dizziness stopped immediately (the dizziness was terrifying!). Another clue: I was bit by spiders 30 times 15 years ago, spiders carry lyme and co-infections. Another clue: I had chronic fatigue syndrome 20 years ago for quite some time (known to be caused by lyme). Apparently lyme uses up all of your magnesium and I have severe magnesium deficiency for 20 some years despite taking magnesium daily. Another clue: starting about 7 years ago, if I get a fever, after it breaks I get a rash down the sides of my torso (toxins from dead lyme which is killed by raising the body temperature). If I stop taking the Tick Recovery and Biofilm formulas it comes back as well as pains in my legs because it takes about two years on the herbs to kill lyme and co-infections, in my case, I think it is Bartonella and/or Rickettsia felis because I have always rescued animals, dogs and cats. I am also taking Monolaurian 3 x a day and Biofibrin, this company says they have cured 43,000 of lyme. So any one who thinks their MS is actually lyme, you should check out Dr. Klinghardt's articles on this as he believes all MND; ALS, MS, dementia and so on are caused by lyme disease or co-infections. I had/have other weird symptoms such as ringing ears, severe gluten intolerance, pains that move around, needing 12 hours of sleep, heart would speed up for no reason. I don't expect to be fully better for about a year or two.
Another thing I learned, and this will be very helpful to people who have either Lyme or MS (or maybe Lyme IS MS!) is that progesterone is neuro-protective and can help you in so many ways to have no symptoms. I say this because when I suffered this last nerve attack, I started using progesterone cream and 1 week later my pain and inability to walk decreased by 75%!
Benefits of natural progesterone:
Helps Use Fat for Energy
Facilitates Thyroid Hormone Action
Normalizes Blood Sugar Levels
Restores Proper Cell Oxygen Levels
Normalizes Zinc & Copper Levels
Normalizes Blood Clotting
Precursor for Cortisone Production
So I figured out that because I am breastfeeding my 3 year old right now, I have almost no progesterone. So this left me very vulnerable to the lyme. It is as though my body can keep the lyme in check as long as I have enough progesterone. My dad just died of dementia last year at a mere 78 years old and I now believe he died of lyme disease and our medical system is USELESS, CORRUPT, and INCOMPETENT. Last I want to add yet another clue that this is lyme, my 8 year old has autism and they are now finding congenital lyme in all autistic kids!
There is a new urine test for lyme and co-infections: $700 (of course you will have to pay out of pocket due to our useless medical establishment)
