I finally feel like there is a light at the end of what felt like a never-ending tunnel. Last week I attended an appointment at a local private hospital to see whether they would treat me for Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. Whilst they have said no to giving me IV treatment they have offered me an oral antibiotic pulse protocol which they think will cure me of Lyme. They say it has cured others similar to me before, so I have high hopes.
Now that they have said they will treat me I feel like my stress levels have plummeted, though I must admit they did soar back up when I saw the price for treatment. I have no idea how I am going to afford it, but at the end of the you cannot put a price on health! Being free of some of my symptoms and having to battle with my body less seems like something out of a fairy tale to me, yet now it is just at my fingertips! Having less pain, less to contend with would be bliss.
I have been lucky that my Botox has worked rather well since I last saw my neurologist. So I have not had to cope with my Dystonia stressing me out at the same time. Today is the first time I have woken up and thought ooh actually my jaw and neck don’t actually feel quite right. Not that I am complaining, with only two weeks to go until my next lot of injections for it to only start twinging now is fine by me as the muscle are not distorting yet.
For those of you who are unaware there are currently two Dystonia online petitions going around. One is US-based the other UK. However it does not matter where in the world you are you can sign either one or both, and I urge you to as it will help make a much-needed difference by boosting awareness of the condition!
