Wanting to add Abilify. Will this make things worse?
Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
Throat tightness is pretty frequent. I can go 3 days feeling good, And then my throat starts to act up and that can last for a couple of days. When my throat is at its worst my left ear can turn very red and hot to the touch. It is very annoying and embarrassing. Also when its at it worst I feel out of it, almost like I'm in a cloud & can't get out, or think straight. I have gone to several doctors & they have came up with many theories, all though nothing has worked. I've had blood tests for my thyroid and those came back (within normal range). I have had an ultrasound done on my neck & they found a couple of small nodules. The docs told me that I shouldn't worry about those. I have changed my diet to see if it was food allergies, I have taken a very strong antibiotic because one of the docs thought it might have been Cellulitis. I have been doing numerous searches about all this, I found an article saying the throat & ear flushing symptoms can be from Gerd, So I started taking Omeprozole a little over a month ago. I do seem to have a couple more better days, but then the headaches start. They are some of the worst headaches I have had in a long time. I'm usually down for the count once they hit. Light sensitive, Sound sensitive, Pressure throughout my head & in the back of my neck at the base of my skull.
