Well I thought I'd update this at the end of one week of Doxy at 100mg. There's really not an awful lot to write home about so far but I figured it was worth posting so that there is a balance to all those who get completely clobbered and people who also get little reaction don't think they're a hopeless case.
I've had no problems. No nausea, nothing. I have noticed a couple of changes though.
My vision has improved in that I'm no longer getting the weird ghostlike circling in one eye and my light sensitivity is not as bad as it was but, my right eyelid has begun an intermittent twitch and my eyesight seems to change from one day to the next. I noticed that one day I can wear my normal glasses for computer work, the next day I can't see a darn thing with those and have to use my reading glasses. The following day no glasses at all.
I've developed pains in my knees. This seems to happen only when I step up or down on something. Given my recent track record with stairs I'm being uber cautious when attempting to use those.
I find I'm sneezing quite a bit and when I do, I get a handful of mucusy lumps rather than the usual wet spray.
And finally, I've had a slightly raised puffy area at the top of my back over my spine. I'd been suspecting it was an oncoming Dowager's Hump. If I ran my hand over it there was no feeling but if I scratched at it with my nails then I could vaguely feel something. That has been intermittently getting hot.
Other than that I'm fine. I spent 4 hours gardening yesterday. All back breaking digging and this morning not even a twinge. I think I'm turning into SuperWoman.
Increased the abx this morning. Will report back.
