It’s an oh shit moment when you see the bullseye mark on your skin. Part of you hopes its just a rash, but another part of you knows what it is. When you visit the doctor they automatically give you antibiotics. Apparently the sooner you get medicine in your system the better. A week after I was in the woods shooting a video, I noticed the bullseye and started to feel sick. Once that happened I setup an appointment and got it checked out, however, they made me wait a few weeks to get blood work done, but when I finally got the results, I wasn’t surprised.
Even after the taking antibiotics for three weeks, I still noticed occasional stiff necks / headaches. I was irritated by it because I thought I was in the clear of experiencing symptoms due to seeing a doctor really soon. I ended up going back to the doctor to see what was going on. They did more blood work and it didn’t show that I was bite a second time. The doctor didn’t seem to think the symptoms were from the lyme disease, so I thought maybe I should go to the chiropractor to get adjusted. I have two problem areas along my spine that always seem to go out that need adjusted, but it’s nothing major.
Around the same time of getting adjusted I decided to do a seven day cleanse. It kicked my ass. The first few days were pretty rough. Aside from visiting the bathroom frequently, I was feeling very drained and even got a fever. Towards the end of the week, I was starting to feel much better, but I didn’t know if I was feeling better because of the cleanse working or because I just was no longer feeling shitty. It’s tough to tell, but I think it worked and the reason I believe that is because I don’t experience the stiff neck / headache combination anymore. Sure I get occasional headaches, but not like the unique symptoms of lyme.
So, did the symptoms of lyme just naturally go away over time? Did the chiropractic adjustment do the trick? Or was it the seven day cleanse that kicked the symptoms? I don’t know, but maybe it was combination of them all. I’ve heard that people who have lyme do some sort of cleanse to clear out various toxins and reboot their system. Again, I don’t know – I’m not an expert in the medical field. What I do know is, is that I hope the symptoms never return and I hope I never get a tick bite again!
