I have Chronic Lyme Disease. Are there any alternative medicines that can help relieve some of the symptoms?

Question by Empress KitiKat: I have Chronic Lyme Disease. Are there any alternative medicines that can help relieve some of the symptoms?
I was misdiagnosed multiple times because Lyme testing is so problematic. Now it’s chronic. I no longer have any type of medical insurance. Is there any type of holistic/alternative medications that can help with some of the symptoms? Primarily body aches, fatigue, headaches.

If the infection has been killed with antibiotics, the bacteria is gone. However, what sometimes happens if the disease is diagnosed late, the bacteria has time to cause tissues damage, which I suppose can cause long term problems.

But “post-Lyme disease syndrome” is tricky and there is controversy as to whether or not these are ongoing symptoms, due to a poorly treated infection or infection treated at a late stage, or there is another cause such as an autoimmune condition. So basically it may be due to a reaction of the immune system that does not switch off, even though the original bacteria causing the infection has been killed. Treatment or management really depends on the symptoms and AltMed has nothing to offer.

You need to see a Doctor who specializes in this area.
