I am sorry this is a bit of a story, but I have no where else to turn.
I am a 34 year old male, healthy(Other than Lyme) and active. 6 months ago I was diagnosed in both the USA and Germany as having Lyme. I started antibiotic treatments, rotating in/out different antibiotics, often taking 2 at once. Amoxicillin, Azithromycin, Doxycyclin, Minocycline, and Rifampin are the ones I can remember. In addition, I started taking Serrapeptace, Samento, Chlorella, CBD oil(No THC), and vitamins. I was doing great. Working lots, lightly hitting the gym again and I was probably symptom free 4-5 days a week, with minor symptoms other days.
A couple friends and I went on a fairly easy, but long hike. about 9km in, one of my friends fell and hurt his leg so we basically had to carry him back to the vehicle. It was absolutely exhausting, we were all sweaty, dehydrated messes, but that night I felt ok. The next day was a disaster. I was more Lymey than I had been in 6 months. 2 days later I went to my doctor and she took me off Rifampin, kept me on Minocycline, and put me on Cephalexin. My world crashed. Every day around noon, I felt EXTREMELY Lymey, Herx'y and basically I felt waisted drunk, with an extremely sore neck. It was as sick as I can ever explain and was basically bed ridden for 4 days. I called my doctor and she immediately took me off Cephalexin. I started to feel a little bit better and we decided it would be a good time to try IV Ceftriaxone. The plan was to do 6-8 weeks worth of IV, 3 days in a row each week. After three days of the IV, each day I started to feel worse. By day 3 I was quite lymey again. Its been 4 days since I had my last IV and I have more Neurological issues than I can handle. I was supposed to start taking Tinidazole on my no-injection days, but my doctor told me to hold off until we figure this out.
Todays Status(13 days after the Hike)
I took Minocycline, CBD(No THC), Zeolite, Chlorella, and vitamins. I feel like my brain is too big for my skull. Constant headache, dizzy, sleepy, nauseous, brain fog, sensitive to sound/light and sore neck.
What happened to make me regress so badly and what can I do? I am starting to panic. What could the hike have done to regress my progress like this? I am open to any suggestions because I cant go on like this.
