When I have a symptom disappear slowly, most of the time I don't realize it unless I look back at symptom logs OR it comes back again. I quit logging quite a while ago and now regret it as I cannot see on paper what and when things have improved or what has not..Sigh.... Back to logging and charting for me! This crash/relapse has me flattened completely and this is the worst I have felt in 18 mo. in regard to energy levels...I have weeks of resting ahead and I am not happy about it.
****I am wondering if any of you with Lyme or CFS/ME have the heavy gravity feeling? It is like a magnet is pulling me down to the earth whether I am standing or laying. I feel like if I lay down for too long I won't be able to get back up. Standing still for more than a few seconds is risky. This nasty symptom is back. The good news is that this was gone for months and months along with waking up after 8-9 hrs of sleep and feeling extremely anxious and out of sorts immediately. Both of these were gone ...GONE for at least 14 mo. and now they have crept back into my life. DANG!
The doctor now has me back on Doxy ~ every other week.....opposite the Zithro/Mepron weeks. She thinks this will keep me from sliding any farther back and hold the Lyme at bay. I am all for that. Treatment for Lyme is really a journey in outsmarting the bacteria...in any and all ways possible.
Lesson Learned today: Keep records! Log symptoms, activitites, meds ~ all of it......SO, when the doctor asks you about it you have answers for her and for yourself. Good grief.
