I'm feeling much better lately. I've had some up and down days - but since getting out of the hospital, resting, and getting a new roommate I'm feeling around a 4, sometimes even a 5 [1 -10 scale, 10 is symptom free]. Anyway, wanted to let you all know that the illness has been less intrusive lately. I also had the Brain SCAN done. 3 abnormal brain scans, and now as of March, I have a normal Brain SPECT. This is very positive. It means that whatever is going on is improving, and it's likely - since the only medicines I've been using are antibiotics - are that the antibiotics are targeting whatever is wrong. The IV antibiotics, plus the antibiotics given in the hospital, as well as the ongoing Tetracycline seem to have had a positive impact. Sepsis is gone, no high fevers - I'm finished with the Levaquin and Bactrim, and I continue using the Tetracycline. Dr. Donta [Lyme Specialist] never wrote me back after I sent him that e-mail in which I chastised him. I suppose I will call Dr. Raxlen in Greenwich CT and see if he'll work with me to continue the Lyme therapy. I'm not sure if I'll still go to Tufts. I suppose that if I continue improving as I have then there won't be a need, but if I notice more down days over the course of this week I'll be ready to plan evaluations out and go for further testing in Boston to see if we can target whatever is causing my situation. I still feel that Chronic Lyme is the most likely problem - but again, there is no way for me to really know. I'm glad the scan was normal. I've noticed a significant decline in depression since being hospitalized as well. In-fact, I've noticed no depression, or abnormal moods at all. I still notice sleep abnormalities though, but overall I'm doing well for now.
