I was just diagnosed with Lyme disease one week ago. I don’t know much about it other than that it’s a bacterial infection that I’m on antibiotics for. I have lots of pain all over and I’m wondering is this a lifelong disease or should it improve?

    Lymes has “flares” and “dormant periods”. The antibiotics put the disease back to sleep so you don’t experience the symptoms so much or as often at least

    My lyme doctor told me that it goes away after treatment, but I think Quinns is right because my cousin has been going to him for ten years. I'm at the beginning of treatment though, so it's just continuous symptoms. I wish you luck!

    Yeah some people experience what Zonnie is saying about continuous flares when being treated. If symptoms reduce then suddenly have a super bad time with it during treatment it’s called a Herxheimer. Which is good but also sucks

    I had spent thousands of dollars on treating LD , no result whatsoever, I could say I’m worse. You have to check for mold and other Enviromental factors or healing is not gonna happen , no matter what
