Zilla of the Resistance at MareZilla.com

***So after years of suffering with doctors unable to figure out what has been wrong with me or how to make it better, my dentist inadvertently found the missing piece of the puzzle and may have saved my life in doing so. Now I need to find a doctor who is willing and able to treat me and, as I look for one, I am learning that obtaining treatment is very expensive. My friends in the Conservative Blogosphere are helping to raise awareness of my situation in the hopes that with help from Tip Jar Hitters, I will be able to the medical care I will need in order to get better and reclaim my life. Story of how I got here below, scroll down for updates.***

 

Find out more HERE and wish our friend Zilla well  :)

    Done. I saw a documentary on this very thing a few months ago. It was very frightening to see people suffering so much from this disease and so many doctors who were trying to help were losing their license over it. Zilla is right, this type of thing is our future under Obamacare and it has already started.

    Oh, Zilla, I am so sorry to read what you are going through.
    Although your frustration must be through the roof, it does sound as if the new doctor is ‘on the ball’.
    I hope and pray you are given a solution soon.

    Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sarah Palin and even Andrew Brietbart and his legacy all say they want to vet Obama this time around. Yet none of them will stand behind Sheriff Joe Arpaio who has announced that there is probable cause to believe Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.

    They are all full of you know what!

    It seems like lyme disease is starting to rear it
    s ugly head more than usual. My sister in law just recovered from having lyme disease and rocky mountain spotted fever. she had it for 6 months before the doctor finally tested for it.

    And I am just now finishing up antibiotics for Rocky mountain spotted fever from a tick bite that would have gone unnoticed if I hadn’t told the doctor about my sister in law. It’s crazy that something so common is continually misdiagnosed.

    @Zilla,
    I consider myself a lyme disease survivor. Both my wife and I suffered similar symptoms that you described for many years. We are both almost 100% cured for at least four years now. I will send you an e-mail message about support groups, and information regarding Lyme that was crucial in our ability to fight it off.

    I’ve been down the back pain road before but thankfully mine has been resolved with surgery so far. Wish you much success in your future treatment and I made a humble donation to your tip jar.

    Now, if I could only do something about this Restless Penis Syndrome…..

    Thank you BFH and Reiuxcat, and all of you wonderful iOTW friends at the blog and here in the comments section! I love you all.
    The good news is that I found a specialist, who has an excellent reputation, an hour away from my home, and thanks to everybody who is helping me, I was able to pay for the visit today. They took lots of blood for testing and really seem to know their stuff. The bad news is that I am currently very VERY sick with something called a Herxheimer reaction, which is due to me being poisoned by neurotoxins as the antibiotics start to kill the Lyme bacteria and they release horrible evil stuff as their “FU” to their host victim. From what I read, this is a one of those “it gets worse before it gets better” things and hopefully I’ll be less sick soon, but today is really really bad. I will try to update my blog tomorrow to thank everybody who has linked to me and let everyone know what’s going on, and hopefully be able to catch up on the thank you emails I need to send to all the nice people who hit my tip jar to help me. Thank you all so much for everything. I truly do love y’all.

    Tip jar hit.

    Zilla, I hope you recover. Prayers are with you.

    While reading the recount of your physical situation, I was in disbelief. It was as if you were writing about me – including the relief in my body during 2 rounds of antibiotics for a root canal gone awry.

    I was tested 14 years ago for Lyme’s but results came back negative. I believed then and still think I have it. Body inflammation and cartilage erosion is too fast and furious for arthritis only.

    Tell Zilla to go to www.http://marshallprotocol.com/

    Register.
    Then go onto the forum,tell them what you have and ask one of the moderators for a list of doctors in your area. This treatment has helped hundreds of people with chronic Lyme disease.

    Your story is not unusual. Normal doctors don’t know. Chronic ill health and chronic pain are MOST often due to a stealth infection in the body, because the bacteria hide somewhere in your body.
    They do not use expensive drugs, but the treatment is a low dose of an older cheap antibiotic which you build up to a higher dose in several months depending on how you feel

    You can even email Dr Marshall himself.He cured himself of a so-called incurable disease called sarcoidosis which usual doctors treat with heavy steroids.
