Review: could Lyme disease cause Confusion?
We study 804 people who have Lyme disease from FDA and social media. Among them, 2 have Confusion. Find out below who they are, other conditions they have and drugs they take.

Lyme disease (latest reports from 4,314 patients) is typically treated by Doxycycline Hyclate, Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, Ceftin, Biaxin.
Confusion (latest reports from 193,223 patients) has been reported by people with depression, high blood pressure, pain, multiple sclerosis, stress and anxiety.
On Jul, 18, 2014: 804 people who have lyme disease are studied. Among them, 2 (0.25%) have Confusion. They amount to 0.00% of all the 193,198 people who have Confusion on eHealthMe.

From this study (4 days ago):
I have so many side effects that chronic fatigue seems simplistic. Almost every cell in my body has been damaged. I have seen over 20 doctors since my cascade of symptoms started (13years ago). They all play dumb, tell me my problem is not in their specialty, or offer me antidepressants. Yet when I look up actual research, I see that most of the pieces of the physiology of my syndrome have been known for years (some for decades).
I also note that on this web site, there is no way to report a high number of side effects or simplify them as mitochondrial damage.
I believe it is the intent of this web site, the AMA, drug companies, and most doctors to deliberately avoid "knowing" about the holocaust of poisoning that is occurring in the name of heath care.
The logarithmical explosion of cancer, obesity, depression, allergies, auto-immune diseases, "rare genetic diseases," and diabetes (to name just a few) matches exactly the explosion of pharmaceutical consumption.
It would be appropriate to apply the scientific method instead of the profit motive to further human health.

Is doxycyclin among these drugs that have been given a black box warning for anyone with mitochondrial disease?
noscreenname on Jun, 23, 2014:
if you have lyme, youre 75% of 100 likely to have either mycoplasma, or serratia. these cause kidney stones, which in turn, cause damage or loss if not surgically removed (struvite type) AND the way the spirochete and other partner bacteria hide from the meds. The lyme docs have known this all along when they said, "it hides where meds cannot get to it". 75% of lymies having myco...= struvite stones that will keep ANY coinfections going on indefinitely via relapse. Its all about meal ticket patients here....sad.

I did have lyme, but it was treated immediately at the appearance of the classic rash. I have been tested several times since - always negative. I looked up mycoplasma and serratia, as you suggested, but found almost none of the symptoms apply to my problems. Thank you for the information. I can now pass that info on to anyone with those sort of symptoms. My symptoms can all be explained by mitochondrial damage caused by doxycycline and azithromycin. Thanks again for your reply. We all need to teach each other as much as possible, as the doctors won't do it.
noscreenname on Jul, 6, 2014:
you know, negative test does not EVER mean no lyme. This is how it works: most tests look for the actual bug; not the lyme test. Lyme test looks for your antibodies to lyme. In raging lyme, bacteria far outnumber the antibodies you can make to fight it. Think of each antibody, as a key that fits in a germ's lock. Once met, the two die together - the antibody can no longer 'react' on the test. test uses dead lyme bacteria, and waits for antibodies to latch on, = positive. Raging infection = millions of busy antibodies, cant register this test. ONLY recovering lymies usually see the positive tests, because antibiotics have now put a dent in the bacterial population.
NEVER ever rely on a negative lyme test. All docs ought to know this. The lab report directs them with these words, as well. Symptoms = #1 diagnosis for lyme. and for you and anyone else reading: ELISA test, is for rash stage. BLOT, is for anything after the first month. My son, got a lyme rash from mosquito bites midwest - he was treated on the spot, with lyme abx -- guess what? 20 days later, broke out in bartonella stripes, looks like stretch marks - lyme brings with it other bacteria, 10 of them if you look it up, almost more often than the lyme bacteria itself = and none of them, respond to the lyme meds - they all need different meds. Hence, if you had the bullseye rash, were treated with doxy etc, you could have the other co infections that dont respond to doxy etc and need a specialist. Doxy shouldnt cause any damage like youre describing. If it made you feel ill, this is called a herxheimer reaction and indicates bacterial die off. (I could not stand doxy when first found with lyme advanced - made me 300% worse while on it, but its a good sign).

Doxy and azithromycin both can cause mitochondrial damage. Both were prescribed, taken, and began my problems before I got Lyme and was treated with yet more doxy, which caused even more serious mitochondrial damage. Large doses of ubiquinol allow my to function at a passible level.
Any and all antibiotics damage your immune system and can allow further infections. Some cause mitochondrial damage. Many other drugs can also cause mitochondrial damage. A huge number of drugs have been recently given black box warnings for anyone with mitochondrial disease. It is also true (though not yet admitted by the FDA) that many of those drugs can cause the mitochondrial damage in the first place.
