Nancy began having flu like symptoms in April of 2005. About 3 weeks later, she had the tell tale sign ~ the Bullseye Rash. A doctor put her on Doxycycline for three weeks. After completing the three weeks of antibiotics, Nancy went back to the doctor feeling like she had been hit by a bus. Her doctor graciously gave her three more weeks of Doxycyline, but she was still not better. Nancy went to another doctor who put her on more Doxy. Finally in late 05/early 06, she found Dr. J (the infamous one from NC/SC).
After speaking with his staff and tons of blood work, they have decided she has no co-infections. Nancy has just been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. She decided to do just oral medications. She was on them for 14 months. In July of 2007, she had a second tick bite. Nancy did several more weeks of Doxy. Nancy will always have some Lyme issues, but in general she feels well.
Nancy currently has Joint Pain, exhaustion and hearing issues. Nancy has four components to her treatment plan. She uses medication, nutritional supplements, a healthy diet and exercise.
Nancy's current prayer needs are that she can be strong and for her husband to find employment.
