AN ADVERSE REACTION & DOG THERAPY | USA Trip for Lyme Disease Treatment Part 5

This vlog shows my forth week of clinic when I started getting new herxheimer (herx) symptoms, I had a severe reaction to a pain relief drug and I got some dog therapy. I was missing my dog like crazy so to have some puppy cuddles in clinic really gave me a boost!

I really hope you enjoy watching :)

    I am so sorry you have Lyme too. Can you let me know which Lyme Doctors you use here in the UK, and USA. I am from Buckinghamshire England and myself and Daughter have Chronic Lyme.

      Hi Jane, I am not currently seeing a Lyme specific doctor in the UK. I went to the stram centre in the USA for 9 weeks of treatment. I’d recommend joining an amazing Facebook group called Lyme Disease UK discussion group. There are many incredibly knowledgeable people on there who know more about all of the options that I do. Getting treatment here is tricky due to the strict NHS guidelines and the lack of understanding but there are some options.
