I have a few friends that have had it a couple times as well… we’re all in the woods on a regular basis. Each of us has gone to various doctors for treatment and there is a range in the way docs may treat it. Many are not up to date on what works best.

    My co-sufferers and I now agree that a 2 week course of Doxycycline IS NOT ENOUGH. We’ve each done 2 weeks as prescribed and had it come back or just plain linger for several months… aches and pains, lethargy, foggy mental state and heart palpitations. The third time I got it, I talked the doctor into doing a second 2 week session about a month following the initial one. The difference in how I felt was amazing. The returned mental clarity and loss of muscle and joint pain had me feeling better than I had in 2-3 years. They’ll tell you 2 weeks is typical and sufficient… typical maybe, but many people I’ve talked to agree, 2 weeks is not sufficient.

    There’s a doctor in Connecticut (I don’t know the name) that has become a specialist in treating Lyme and has had people on much longer antibiotic courses with great success. It can be quite debilitating and negatively affect your daily life. Don’t screw around. If you can work out an extended duration of treatment somehow, go for it. The symptoms can abate and then come back a few months later and then are harder to get rid of. I don’t know why doctors want to draw the line at 2 weeks, but they’re under treating it and setting people up for permanent issues. At least your doctor has said to come back. I would do so without question. It’s not my intention to amp up your concerns, but to encourage you to advocate for yourself.
    Great info on that. Thanks so much.

    Do you have a source to get doxy without a script?

    My reserve is out of date.

    Best stock up on some good tasting live culture Yogurt for Breakfast each morning..like all us smart folks. Tillimook Farm Style Peach taste like it has peach fuzz in it. Thick as cheesecake. That should keep your little gut bugs somewhat relenished from those strong antibiotics. Have some Breakfast cookies as sold at Kroger to go with.

    Good that you caught it in it's early stage. Wouldn't hurt to take another two weeks worth just to be sure.

    If that photo is you, you may have some bigger problems than a tick-bite.

    That photo is not of me, but my rash is just like it. Actually from what I have been told, the rash is the first sign and initial stage. The rash goes away treated or untreated. Mine is already starting to go away. Starting Amoxicillin for 3 days must have helped. I am not worried of it becoming a bigger problem as long as I take a month of antibiotics.

    If you have naturally fermented kraut, that has not been processed, that will do same as yogurt.

    Then you need some smoked kielbasa, horseradish, and brown mustard to go with it......

    Avoid Chobani, yogurt, unless you want Halal. They have been taking the offal Sotero imported and are infesting Idaho.

    And these are nice "peaceful Muslims", unless you are a 5-year old Christian girl.....

    Yikes thanks for the scoop. We have an ice box full of that stuff. Wont buy anymore. Tillamook is my favorirte but Kroger quit carrying it and starrted seeing massive amounts of Chobani which I thoughtg was made by nice Greeks...but apparently not.
