Posted 12/30/2013 8:28 AM (GMT -7)

Hello everybody,

I want to make public the failure of BCA Augsburg in Germany ,after almost 1 year of antibiotic , different combinations (azitromicyn,minocyclin, artemisinin, rifampicin, naturopathic antibiotics + multiple supplements)
my initial Lyme symptoms get worse and they did not have any other treatment solution.I mention also the huge treatment cost , more than 10,000 Euro without any improvement.I want the people that consider going there for treatment to know about another 10 people that I knew from Augsburg, no one had any improvement after getting antibiotic treatment there.Just beware about this Lyme treatment option is not so successful like they claim. Have a happy New Year 2014.

Another ex patient here who would like to make a formal complaint. I am having difficulty trying to locate the relevant body to approach.
I ended up seriously unwell and hospitalised.

I've had this clinic recommended to me by the doctor I was seeing until recently, however the $30,000 price (travel from Australia, accommodation etc) made me want to proceed with extreme caution.

I'd definitely spend that on a definite cure, but I've become a hardened skeptic during my ordeal, so I'm glad to see some others post about their less than satisfactory experiences there.

Also, in response to those with their detoxing and healthy eating advise, in the over nine years I suffered "chronic fatigue syndrome", I tried and followed a low gi, gluten free, sugar free diet, along with at times, dairy free, the caveman diet, any number of variations of "healthy" diets, as well as all types of detoxes, supplements, potions, elixirs, and vitamins, and in all that time none of them made any difference whatsoever.

Now I have my Lyme diagnosis, I struggle with the notion that I can cure this with an approach that failed to halt its progress in the first place.

edit: added topic title.

So there are other people like me!

Antibiotics made me sicker than I was before taking them - and I was pretty ill by that time. But they started this cascade of pain upon pain upon pain that I cannot seem to get out of.

What are those other people doing for it? Have they found anything...anything at all...that helps?

Once those antibiotics began me on this horrible pain cycle, it never stopped - not even when I stopped taking the antibiotics.

I, too, have tried all those diets and detoxes - they do not help one bit.

Do you have any ideas for what we can do to help ourselves, Martian? Do you know of more people like this? What do we do now?

I didn't go to the BCA. I'm followed by a LLMD (i think it's the good term)
I took 2 months of antibiotics (azitromicyn and fluconazole). This cure (december 2013-february 2014) made me sicker than I was before taking them. This cascade of pain is very long.

Other treatements tried was decreased pain (silver colloidal, essential oils...) a little, for a few hours.

My last treatement (decembre 2014) tried decrease a lot of pain. Near zero pain. For all day!
I suppose pain is created by infection.
Futur answer the question : do i make a other cure of antibiotics?

At least we don't go to the questionable BCA Clinic, which is run by some of "our friends" from the ILADS.
