I posted about methylation yesterday and how in trying to do so my pain has amped up, but it occurred to me last night that on Wed, I may have been bitten by a tick. I decided to sit in the sun and I was laying back and I felt a bite. When I looked down, what I saw looked like a tick was on my ankle and I took my finger and got it off of me. It left behind a little dot where I was bitten. No rash or bulls-eye, etc. I was concerned at the time, but nothing happened. Yesterday, (Friday) my pain started going nuts and it's not normal pain. My feet and hands are killing me and I can't get relief. I put on a Butran's pain patch and it didn't touch it. Also, behind my eyes hurts. It hurts to walk. I emailed my CFS doc and he actually called me, which is rare. he doesn't believe it's Lyme but inflammation due to the bite. He only prescribed me 3 days worth of Doxycyline. I have already had one day's worth of Doxy. I knew that didn't sound right and @zzz just reminded me that I need 4 weeks worth. I am scared, as he hates to prescribe antibiotics. he is extremely conservative regarding abx. If I call him on Monday and say I need more, he may so "no." Does anyone have any suggestions as almost all of my docs hate prescribing antibiotics. I don't know what to do and I am running low on funds to see an LLMD. They cost a fortune. I have spent almost $700 on meds this month alone. LLMD's cost about $250 for a first time appointment. Correction-found an LLMD that I used to go to actually...he is $450 for a first time appointment. He used to take Medicare and doesn't anymore. Robbery. I have Common Variable Immune Deficiency so I can't fight things and my IGG is low, plus I have the Sjogrens on top of CFS. I can't fight infections due to the CVID. Thank you.
