Thank you for taking time to learn more about Eddi's battle with Lyme Disease. She has been overcoming Lyme and all of it's related symptoms and side affects for some 15 years. Eddi did not get the proper diagnosis until November of 2013 after years of seeing many doctors and attempts to treat individual symptoms and several hospitalizations. In December 2013, she started being treated for Lyme. Lyme treatments cause Herxheimers which is a detoxification reaction to killing the toxins in the body. It is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms. There have been times she's had to take a break from treatment because of Herxheimers. But she has continued to have progressive treatments over the last 4 years.
Most people don't know how sick Eddi has been. She has not shared with many people that she has been battling Lyme and she doesn't like to talk about the symptoms or struggles she faces daily. She tries to push herself to go out, see friends, and join in things that are important to her because she hasn't wanted to give in to this disease. So if you've been around her and she seems like everything is fine it is because EDDI IS A FIGHTER and an OVERCOMER! She is at a place where the symptoms are no longer manageable and we need more aggressive treatment. Eddi's doctor has recommended a new treatment approach so we will be going to Lifeworks Wellness Center in Clearwater, Florida for 8-12 weeks. We are extremely hopeful for the outcome. We are believing for a complete cure! She is ready to have her life back! I'm ready to have my wife back! :-)
