I took the Doxycycline for 3.5 weeks but finally had to stop it. I developed sun sensitivity and heat / cold intolerance and eventually broke out in a red bumpy rash that developed some blistering. I am still quite achy and am having lots of tingly, burning and sharp pain sensations pretty much all over my body. I have even had sensations in my face and eyes which I do NOT like AT ALL!!!
At this point, I am as confused, frustrated and upset as ever! I had cancelled my upcoming LLMD appointment just out of disgust with antibiotics but now I know that I need to continue treatment as I am still very symptomatic. I just don't know WHAT we should treat at this point! *sigh* On one hand, I just want to try to forget about it all and just see what happens to me but on the other hand, I realize that putting off treatment isn't going to make it go away and it could likely make it worse and more difficult to treat down the road.
THIS REALLY STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
