Dr Andrew agreed we had exhausted the supply of antibiotics on the PBS. And he was not able to prescribe for Lyme anyway. I wanted to stop the antibiotics too. However I have a feeling that had the Government not put a ban on him treating Lyme kinda stuff, then he would not have agreed to me stopping. I have been feeling worse already since stopping but there is a complicating factor - an abscessed root canal treated tooth. It abscessed while I was on the Zinnat and later again on the Cipro. It tunnelled through my gum to the exterior forming a lump above the tooth several times. It used to go up and down. If that channel had got blocked I would have been in a lot of pain but what pain I had was totally bearable which is why I kept postponing its removal giving priority to several breaks on other teeth between December and now. I probably would have given priority to the right incisor (which had broken off at the gum line) at my latest emergency dental appointment had the dentist not made up his mind for me and took the left incisor out. He said the infection may explain the extra fatigue I have been feeling. Now I look terrible. It is a big loss to have to say goodbye to both incisors and it does not help the depression I still have. I have been depressed and anxious for 12 months. Life has not been fun even when I had my health. It makes no sense at all.
