I have lost countless hours of sleep and sanity due to the itch and overall pain doxycycline has caused me. I began taking it to help with the pain my acne is causing me, but this hypersensitivity & itch is driving me absolutely crazy. Does the pain subside after a certain point? Is this pain worth it? Please help!
Hi Everyone, I study ways to stay healthy. Along the way I studied Neurological symptoms, knowing what I already know about vitamins and minerals I felt that could be a connection with well rounded knowledge. What I found was most if not all of those symptoms had a common deficiency. Something kept sounding wrong though. Then I looked into Acidic Crystals and how too much acid in the body prevents mineral absorption. Not only does it prevent absorption properly it forms acidic crystals that cause`s inflamation and pain. It is my belief these crystals are also associated with Morgellon`s Disease. Fibers mixed with GMO vegatable dna. The fibers could be partly acidic crystals. I also believe these crystals can form anywhere in the body causing Gout, Fibromialgia, Arthritis, ALS and on and on. Why not Shingles also ? It seems to be the real reason minerals are not absorbed, result it opens the door to pain and who knows what else. My own personal experience is Cherries and Milk ( do not drink skim milk ) resolved a real problem. I`ve seen cherry concentrate get rid of Gout in 5 days also. Look into this deeply because I am confident many can benefit with it. It may be just that simple. Garlic can get rid of many infections if that occurs also.

I have been suggested Doxycline for 5 days (2 per day) before my frozen embryo transfer. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis - hypothyroidism and I take 125 mg of synthroid per day. Currently my TSH is 0.41. Would taking the above dosage of Doxycycline increase my TSH level?
I was prescribed 100mg doxycycline tablets for acne, and it makes me throw up 10-15 minutes after taking it. I tried to eat food with it to lessen stomach upset like it suggests, but if I eat with it I get a headache. The pill has dissolved in my esophagus before and caused it to be chemically ...
