Day 4 Doubts

    Hello again,

    though I try to keep journaling more or less every day I have some problems regarding the SEP. It´s not possible for me to do each day a new exercise. I simply do not find the time to do so.

    Coming now to day 4 and the questions to answer.

    What was the most disheartening thing a doctor has told you about your symptoms?

    Two so called specialists told me that I contracted lyme disease - just according to the symptoms. Please remember that my main problems were and are always numbness, tingling and weakness in the arms in combination with neck pain. The specialists told me, that it would not be possible to heal that disease and that I will have to take antibiotics for the rest of my life. Just in order to avoid, that the disease will bring me into a wheelchair.

    In what ways have you kept that in your mind?

    I took antibiotics over years without any success. Even worse - new symptoms arised. As soon I felt or feel something new - e.g. tingling in the leg - I think to myself: "Oh my god - the antibiotics don´t help any more and I´m straight on my unstoppable way into a wheelchair."

    It is really not simple to deal with that topic as it really leads fear.

    A friend had Rocky Mountain Tick disease and was cured with antibiotics.
    The doctors who told you lyme disease can not be treated should keep up with developments.
    I just went to Dr. Google and found at least one article about treating lyme disease.
    It is from Shea Medical. I am not recommending it, just telling you about it.
    The article says,

    Antibiotics are not enough to treat Lyme disease according to a new study in mice by Columbia University. Doctor Brian Fallon, director of the Lyme and Tick Borne Diseases Research Center at Columbia University, conducted a shocking experiment. The experiment was with lab mice that were infected with spirochetal bacteria (the underlying cause of Lyme disease). The mice were treated with antibiotics and later exposed to non-infected ticks. The ticks, after being exposed to the antibiotic treated mice still became carriers for the infection. The findings pointed to the fact that antibiotics don’t cure Lyme disease. We understand that studies in mice do not always correlate to human studies but in over a decade of treating Lyme disease patients this data matches exactly what we have found clinically in our practice. Antibiotics are not enough. However, our medical group has discovered a revolutionary solution for patients to improve their quality of life.

    Read the rest at the web site for lyme disease treatment.

    Good luck healing!

    Good morning Walt,

    thanks for your reply. You are right - lyme disease does not have to be incurable.

    Since the antibiotics didn´t change anything to my health in the last 10 years I took the decision to treat the rest of my symptoms as TMS. It is almost proven for me that it is no more lyme disease - if it was one day. what also is not 100% sure for me. I´m talking about the following symptoms:

    - shoulder/neck/arm pain (one day left the other day right)
    - insomnia
    - weakness and tingling in my right leg
    - stomach problems

    These issues can be TMS from my point of view. Also due to the fact that my latest lyme blood tests were always 100% negative. But every time I recognize a new symptom or a changing symptom or some strange nerve sensation I come back to the Dr.´s statement which fears me a lot and makes it not easy to let lyme go now.

    What helps me in such moments is my evidence sheet. Who the fuck is able to do a combat workout 4-5 times a week if he has a serious illness or an infection like lyme & co.?

    Good point Chris. I have a friend who is disabled. Not doing workouts with Lyme and co.
