2011 ill 10 days high fever diagnosed( no test) Mono sent home treatment amoxicillin still in pain and unwell 3months later test and diagnosis Lyme treatment Doxicyclin 14 days some improvement but not recovered diagnosis muscle cramps, joint pain, swelling legs,Rosacea doxy again retested April Lyme positive sent to Infectious Disease specialist told not Lyme (no test) sent to Rhuematology multiple tests, no positive results for anything tested. And on and on and on! Last seen dermatologist diagnosis post inflammatory skin changes. Feels I had a rash over 2/3 of my torso and thighs that I did not notice because I am of a darker skin tone. Supports diagnosis of Rosacea, feels much of the problems may be caused by Lyme which I do not have a diagnosis for.
From this study (1 week ago):
I don't think I have completely recovered. When I started the medication, I almost immediately started noticing issues with difficulties urinating. I also noticed significant pressure in my prostate area. I have been off of the drug for 3 weeks now and still am noticing that I feel pressure down there as well as difficulty urinating. It has gotten much better, but 3 weeks out and I am getting scared of permanent damage.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Concerned about taking Mucinex with Verapamil and Diovan for hypertension, and Tramadol for arthritis pain.
