Feeling Worse After Treatment? Maybe It’s Not Lyme Disease

Feeling Worse After Treatment? Maybe It’s Not Lyme Disease


“I was always a healthy person. Always in the gym. Still am, when I can. And anytime something came
up, I was apt to see a doctor because I always wanted to
make sure I was healthy. That’s the gold of life. That’s better than any wealth
you can have is your health.” “I had a lot of medical
professionals confused with my health condition.” “I was feeling like
severe headaches, severe migraines,
arthritis symptoms. I had a bilateral carpal
tunnel syndrome release, which was unsuccessful. So he sent me to a Lyme
disease specialist. ” “He felt that it
was Lyme disease. I did the treatments and he
was getting ready to put me on an intravenous pump for
antibiotic treatment and that’s when I started going
blind in my right eye. And that’s when I thought, ‘Well
maybe this ain’t Lyme disease, maybe this is something else.” “Come to find out, what I thought was Lyme
disease it wasn’t.” “I went to a neurologist and I
consulted with an eye surgeon and that’s when I went
for an MRI and they saw that I had a golf [ball] sized
tumor on my pituitary [gland], which was crushing both
hemispheres of the brain and was wrapping
around the optic nerve. ” “It kind of made
me feel disappointed because you would think
that a lot of people in these positions
would have grasped it or picked up on it sooner. But instead they felt that
it was all in my head. And come to find out it was
It was the size of a golf ball and it was a tumor
on the pituitary.” “They removed approximately
90% of the tumor and the medication
I’m on now helps to keep the growth
hormone levels in check. If I would have been diagnosed
sooner, I could have went on medication and shrunk it
all together without surgery.” “I wouldn’t want to
see someone else going through the same thing
that I’m going through. I mean, I’m still here. But there’s days when I can do
everything and anything and days where I can’t even
get out of bed and if I was diagnosed
sooner, I wouldn’t be going through what I’m
going through now.” “I have three children
and a wonderful wife and I’m lucky to be here still.” “It was a very trying time for
about 2-3 years with my children and my family and
naturally I couldn’t see it. But they could see it
and they could feel it. Now, looking back, hindsight,
I’m lucky that she’s still there and my family’s still
there with me. They stuck by me.” “People need to be a
little more knowledgeable about Lyme disease. Antibiotics is just
given out regularly and it’s just a fast, quick fix. And it needs to be
looked into further because other people
have diseases where antibiotics will
affect them even worse.” If treatment’s not working, there’s got to be
another cause.”>>If you have been treated for chronic Lyme disease and still do not feel better, please advocate for your health and get a second opinion.>>If you believe you have had untreated Lyme disease for months or years, please see an infectious
disease specialist who uses FDA-cleared,
fully validated tests.
