Hi. Thanks for reading. I have Chronic/Late stage Lyme Disease and need urgent treatment. PLease help me raise the funds I need for urgent treatment. I am deteriorating quickly now and without this treatment will end up totally disabled or worse. More ...
On returning from a holiday in Malta I got seriously ill for about 9 months and couldn't breathe, I couldn't walk properly and in general couldn't really do anything. My hair fell out and the doctors kept saying it was a throat infection, a flu bug, a chest infection etc etc. After 9 months of being on antibiotics I managed to go back to work and was then told that I had been suffering from viral infection similar to glandulafever but I never regained my strength and struggled with working and then child rearing whilst being in a lot of pain and so fatigued that I slept a lot of the time and was prescribed lots of high dose painkilles and diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, connective tissue disease, arthritis, depression, anxiety and on and on. 3 years ago I woke up one morning with meningitis symptoms and felt really poorly and these came back every couple of weeks until I ended up bedridden and in so much pain I couldn't even turn over in bed. I then contracted a throat infection and was given antibiotics and all my symptoms disappeared and I had energy. When the course finished it all came back again and this went on, on and off antibiotics for 2 years until finally I heard about Lyme Disease and asked my Doctor to have me tested and it came positive. I struggle every day with severed pain and fatigue and nausea and am getting sicker and sicker by the week. Im virtually housebound now and cant do much.
Because ive been on antibiotics for so long, im now contracting antibiotic resistant infections and the treatment for Late stage Lyme is a cocktail of high dose intravenous antibiotics or a more natural approach, one of which is Dr Cowden's Protocol which is also used in Lyme clinics and by Lyme doctors as an alternative to the antibiotics, I have decided to treat the Lyme using the Cowden Protocol. Because the NHS wont treat Late stage/Chronic Lyme Disease I am having to pay for this treatment privately and it will cost me £300 per month for 18 months treatment. I need this treatment urgently as ive got to the stage where this disease is crippling me and will kill me if not treated properly. PLEASE HELP. Thankyou.
