    10 minutes following the initial infusion of Rocephin (IV push over about 5 minutes via PICC line for the treatment of Lyme disease), I had a seizure. How common are seizures as side effects of Rocephin? By what mechanism does medication lead to a seizure? Is it possible that I would have the same reaction again, if the method of administation were changed to drip (maybe over the course of an hour) rather than IV push?

    Seizures are listed as a RARE side effect of Rocephin. In Lexi-Comp (medicine database), it lists seizure as a possible side effect (along with 100+ other rare side effects), and states that all of them occur in less than 1% of patients. I don’t think anybody knows the exact mechanism (sorry).But it is possible that you would have the same reaction again, though nobody can really know. Its not an allergy, but a very rare side effect. Lyme disease has neurological effects and it is possible that it lowered your seizure threshold to a point making you more susceptible to having a seizure. In this case, you would probably not have a seizure again with Rocephin in the future…for other infections, etc. But I don’t think anybody will tell you that they are positive about this.And yes…it is very possible (and likely) that administration of it over a longer period of time would lessen the likelihood of you having a seizure…but again, nothing can be guaranteed…Not a whole lot of help, but at least an attempt….

    August 3rd, 2012Adminlyme disease in dogs

    For the past year now I have been having these symptoms, mostly nerve symptoms. I don’t want to write a book here – like I have done previously with my symptoms – so I will try to keep it brief:First cycle of symptoms (1 year ago): incense wave of pins and needles like never before, very intense. Random skin itching all over body.Second cycle (11 months ago): Very sensitive skin, felt like skin was sensitive to air! Very strange.Last cycle (three weeks ago): burning sensation on skin. Hard to describe but if you’ve ever experienced it, you will know what I mean. I would be sitting outside in sun and get an isolated patch of goosebumps on skin… Creepy, which induced a ton of anxiety for me, as my symptoms had returned.In addition to there sensory symptoms, I have felt my cognitive game slip. I mix up words, feel like my brain is not that sharp (I am no Albert Einstein), but definitely can make a noteworthy change in brain function. Memory slips and such. So, a brief bit about me, female, symptoms started when I was 29, I will be 31 in August, European decent (fits MS description like a glove). Otherwise very healthy, workout 5x/week, don’t ever eat junk, eat tons of lean protein, fruit, vegetables, avacado, carbs, grains.. etc.. drink loads of water. So, i don’t think I am lacking anything in my diet, like vitamin B..My family is from the mid-west, Minnesota. I am back often. I currently reside in FL, but recently my dog was diagnosed with Lymes. She had had cornea ulcers and I spend over 1K in vet bills and finally we found out it was Lymes causing the cornea ulcers.. Which is apparently not a very common side effect of Lymes, at least 4 different vets couldn’t figure it out. Point of the story, she was exposed and I didn’t even know it. Is it possible I could be too or is this MS.There is more, after my 1st cycle of symptoms I had a brain scan, the Dr. told me there here no brain lesions. Well, after getting a second opinion, my neuro yesterday told me there WERE lesions on the scan, two. But not typical MS lesions. He ordered another brain scan with contrast, blood work (for Lymes and auto immune diseases) and 2 spine scans. So what is my question, I am sitting here with bad anxiety waiting and want to know if anyone has had a similar experience? Does this sound like the onset of MS, or maybe Lymes? Or maybe something else I am way off…Thanks in advance for your time!

    Thats really bad for you.it would be better, if you ask a doctor.Best wishes!
