I saw my Lyme Dr. and he is aware of what I'm about to write. He is the one that recommended the Paleo diet:
I've been suffering from Lyme disease x 5 years. Antibiotics and other treatments have not helped and I've only gotten worse. I'm 11 days into the Paleo diet and I'm having what feels like severe die off and flaring of symptoms. Is this to be expected ? i.e. not just flu like stuff, but off the wall anxiety that Xanax doesn't help, shaking, trembling, cold to the bone, body aches, crying jags, off balance, head stabbing pains in the back of the head, spine pain, the list goes on.. Thanks in advance..
Instead of cutting out like sugar one week, then dairy the next, etc., I cut out all the bad stuff at once. I now know this was wrong, but 11 days in, I don't want to re-introduce anything and just ride it out.
I have blood flow issues to the brain from the infections, and even they are flaring, or so it feels. Doing everything I can do, including enemas to detox.
