  • 1 hour lunch break before Push
  • Glyoxal shot (butt)
  • Push #10 – dosage “.07” which was the same as Friday. Reaction: no shakes, bad neuro pain, body aches/pain, headache and fever up to 103.0, had toradol injection for the pain.

Tuesday 4/29

  • Detox IV
  • Detox Shot (arm)
  • 1 hour lunch break before Push
  • Glyoxal shot (butt)
  • Push #11 – dosage “.12”. Dr Fong wanted me to go up more (.05 instead of .01)  since I hadn’t been shaking. Reaction: chills, body aches and pain, neuro pain, fever up to 102.0. Ended up getting a mag rider (magnesium IV) and toradol injections because my leg pain was awful.

Wednesday 4/30:

  • Fasting blood draw for labs
  • Colonic – off site at another medical clinic. That was quite the experience. :/ I am focusing on detoxing since my body isn’t cleaning itself out like it should. Adding in more fiber and supplements to keep me regular. 
  • PEMF treatment on my knees
  • Detox IV
  • Detox Shot (arm)
  • 1 hour lunch break before Push
  • Glyoxal shot (butt)
  • Push #12 – dosage “.17” Went up another .05 today. Got hooked up to a mag rider as soon as I got into bed. This way it would already be in my system and I wouldn’t have to stay at the clinic as long waiting for it to finish. I can’t seem to find my record of what my reaction was and I cannot remember. I know it was rough, and I did have a toradol injection to stop the fever and pain. 

Thursday 5/1:

  • EEG (Electroencephalogram). Had this test done to see what is going on with my brain. I have a lot of cognitive lyme symptoms like short term memory loss, brain fog, concentration issues, etc. This test had a few things show up, and the way they described to me what was going on was insane. I’ve always had issues reading, ever since high school. I would get really intense headaches, my eyes would jump all over the page, I couldn’t retain what I was reading, or my mind would wonder and think of other things. Turns out I have an area of my brain that’s not working properly which is the cause of all that. It was crazy to me, because I never mentioned this to them since I had been dealing with that way before my Lyme flared up. And I thought that was always something to do with my eyes – not my brain. I’ve also had problems with headaches, jaw pain, and grinding my teeth. Turns out that showed up too. I will look into this further when I get home, and hopefully will be covered by insurance.

    “Lookin’ good!”
  • Detox IV
  • Detox Shot (arm)
  • Appointment with Dr Fong. This went well. He reiterated that he wants me to be shaking at the beginning of my Push reactions, and to not be afraid of going up more than .01 or .02 in my dosage. He ordered for me to add in Apple Fiber with Apple Pectin each day to work on my regularity, as well as rectal ozone to kill any bad guys up in there. (I know all of this info is just so exciting- but I’m just keepin’ in real. lol) I also had another tube of blood drawn to check my thyroid levels since I haven’t been on my thyroid or adrenal meds since arriving here. 
  • Glyoxal shot (butt)
  • Push #13 – dosage “.20”. Reaction was extreme aches/pain, hard shakes for a good 30 minutes, bad neuro pain, fever up to 102.5. I skipped the mag rider to see how much it actually helped me. Each of those IV’s is around $100 and I am really trying to be frugal with my remaining funds. I did however get the injection of toradol to stop the pain after a couple hours. It was probably the roughest reaction I’ve had so far. I got up to go to the bathroom and almost fell because my knees and legs hurt so bad. Resulting in my first wheelchair experience.

Friday 5/2:

  • Darkfield analysis. I will post the video of this later on. It didn’t look as good as I hoped but I still have a week left.
  • PEMF treatment on my knees
  • Detox IV
  • Detox Shot (arm)
  • 1 hour lunch break before Push
  • Glyoxal shot (butt)
  • Push #14 – dosage “.20”. I stayed the same as yesterday. Reaction was extreme aches/pain, neuro pain, extreme shakes for 30-35 minutes, fever up to 102.6. I ended up riding out the pain and did not have to get the toradol. Hopefully that means my immune system is really getting stronger! 

Saturday 5/3:

I was planning on going in today but I have just been in a funk, and completely drained, so I decided to take the whole weekend off to relax.

Have a great weekend everyone!
