Default Lyme and Panic Disease

"There are many Lyme disease cognitive symptoms that cause rushes of panicky feelings. The most typical is what I call "Lyme urgency." This is a psychological feeling which is related to a need to drive oneself to attend to tasks, combined with a feeling of concern if one doesn't act on every task at the moment that one thinks about it. What results is less overt panic at the time and more chaos in the long run. The distraction that one experiences from this compulsion leads to unfinished tasks and then exhaustion as one works longer and later to fix the chaos from all the interruptions. This, in turn, connects the panic to depression in many people."

I wouldn't say I have panic attacks but "Lyme urgency" does describe my behavior and the unfinished tasks and the chaos. Very often, just before leaving for vacation, I just "have to" work on some things that I have been putting off for weeks and months. I only seem to be able to single-thread my activities. I have difficulty prioritizing and planning and coordinating multiple activities in a way that is most efficient and effective. And my lack of effectiveness does make me angry with myself and depressed at times. I thank God for my wife who is able to look at the good I do as well as the chaos and lack of accomplishment in other areas:

Default Lyme Disease and Rife Machines

Here is a paper that I believe was the beginning effort which led to the book, "Lyme Disease and Rife Machines":

Here are a number of positive reports of Lyme sufferers who used Rife machines:

Here is a site that has a lot of good information about Lyme Disease (also a lot about caring for reptiles and amphibians if that's your interest):

Heart lymes is past horriable.. help!

i have suffered many years with lymes disease. when i got lymes, i had the bulls eye rash as my friend did. we were very sick. i didn't have my insurance then, so all i could do was take erythomycin 33 mg. 3 times a day for 10 days. i am allergic to the docy. i have since then had all kind of weird and terrible pains, burnings, confusion , you name it. my vit d level is now very low at a 10. that scares me. i also have diabetes. plus every time the dr's do a test for lymes it comes back negitive. now they are sending me to a rhumatoligist. will i get help or will they even believe me. i wonder. if i don't have lymes, i wish some one would please tell me what that big bulls eye rash was and why i was so sick about 3 weeks after having a tic removed. we live in the country on a lake and deer walk thu our yard all the time. i would dearly love to be able to do the things i did before i got sick. i first got lymes in 1993, then it was better after 1998, then i was reinfected in 2003. any help? ty and bless you all loraina

Loraina,

As you no doubt know, there is no proven way to deal with chronic lyme disease. I can only tell you what I am doing that seems helpful for me. Unfortunately, the stuff I do is either relatively expensive, or potentially hard on the body.

I am doing the salt/vitamin C therapy (see my post, "Salt and Vitamin C for Lyme Disease). I have problems with high blood pressure if I don't make sure to drink lots of water. I would not recommend this for you since you have diabetes. If you do decide to go this route, be sure your doctor approves and monitors you. I would think that extra vitamin C (without the corresponding amount of salt) would be helpful and safe for you. I am also helped a lot by sea buckthorn - I am taking the tea, and oil from the seeds and oil from the fruit of the sea buckthorn plant. I also consume a cultured milk product called kefir along with undenatured whey protein powder (the one I use is "Fat Flush whey protein powder"; it's important to use whey protein powder that is undenatured to preserve the whey components that help your immune system to fight bacteria). Finally, I am planning to purchase a Rife machine. I just haven't been able to decide which one yet.

I wish you all the best.

Default Why salt/c not good if diabetic?

Hi wasabi, I've been reading some of your info on the fibro forum.

I've also self-diagnosed myself with chronic Lyme (infected about 9yrs ago). Last year I tried the salt/c therapy & it was the one thing that gave me improvement. However I did get concerned about my blood pressure so stopped taking it. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about the same time of my spider bite (yes,spider-not tick). Just curious if you have a link for me to read about why the salt/c shouldn't be used if diabetic cause I've never heard this before (or I forgot).

Thanks for sharing all the research you do!

buttons,

I don't have a specific link for you to go to. I just believe that one's body has to be in relatively good condition to handle 12-15 grams of salt per day. Also, cardiovascular problems and kidney problems (many patients on dialysis are there because of kidney failure caused by diabetes) seem to be strongly associated with diabetes, so I don't think the salt/c treatment for someone with diabetes is a safe thing for someone to try without being under close supervision by a doctor.

Default You have a good point

OK, this makes sense. I'd be sent off to the loony bin for sure if I ever mentioned anything I've taken for the bug invasion.....cause we don't have Lyme disease in WA state,and we don't have any harmful spiders either!

I did make a poultice for the bite on my foot when it decided (after many years), to bother me again. I got the lesion to raise up considerably & was able to get liquid from it,had it cultured of course,but I made no mention of perhaps culturing for mycoplasma....nor did I admit to the foot doc that I had used salt on my foot.

Are you seeing any improvements using salt/c? It really helped my arthritis in my knees & gave me more energy than I ever expected to have again. One weird thing that nobody else ever mentioned: about 1/2 hr after finishing off my glass of water/salt/c, my feet would both be freezing cold. Any theories on that?
