My Own Lyme Protocol

My Own Lyme Protocol

After I passed out last week (read the whole story: here) I was fed up with the entire situation. I want to go forward again and for this treatment is simply necessary. Because I have tried so many treatments, protocols, medication and supplements it was unclear to me how to proceed. I do not have many options left. I have tried almost everything there is and the choice that I do have is to go abroad for experimental treatments that offer no guarantee. Moreover they are so expensive that I cannot afford them even I wish to try them. But my preference lies with natural medicine and supplements anyhow as they do not weaken my body any further.

Passing Out

Passing Out Due To Pain

Chronic Lyme Disease


Last week it happened to me again… Passing out due to an overload of pain. With this post I will try to shed a light on what this exactly means with the purpose of letting you know more about what it is to have Chronic Lyme Disease.

The last few weeks and months have been horrible for me. Even worse than the months before. This itself is not a surprise as I often have my worse months in the fall and winter. For example I always catch the flu when the “flu season” arrives as a result of my weak immune system. But over the last 2 months I have not been able to leave the house at all. I mostly lie in bed trying to cope with all of my symptoms and the excruciating pain. My symptoms vary from having high fever, feeling nauseated and feeling weak to having more severe standard symptoms (muscle and joint pains, nerve pain, headaches and fatigue).

Aside from a weekend with friends in September I have not been able to do anything.

I am not writing this to whine or complain about it, but to give an image of how the last few months have been for me. Let’s call it the “build-up” that led to this episode.
