After four years on the merry go round with blood test and countless Dr.s I just found out that I have Bartanella too. I don't even remember what that is......lol I am going to be changed next week from my usual 2 hour IV treatment to 5 hours a day. It is not painful because it is done through my port in my chest. I am happy with the friendly staff that cares for me at the clinic. I feel okay after 4 days of treatment this week. I do not miss the head aches and the fever and the brian fog or the pain. It actually feels odd to feel well.
I keep meeting really wonderful people here. The support and the love and the feeling of a higher being, yes god, is something that I can not ignore. I feel like I am here for a reason. I hope that others find a way to get the help that they deserve for themselves and their loved ones as well. I only can hope that this could be a answer for the many that are suffering. I hope and pray that this works, for the sake of us all.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

FROM WIKI

Treatment is dependent on which strain of Bartonella is found in a given patient. While Bartonella species are susceptible to a number of standard antibiotics in vitro—macrolides and tetracycline, for example—the efficacy of antibiotic treatment in immunocompetent individuals is uncertain.[8] Immunocompromised patients should be treated with antibiotics because they are particularly susceptible to systemic disease and bacteremia. Drugs of particular effectiveness include trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, and rifampin; B. henselae is generally resistant to penicillin, amoxicillin, and nafcillin.[8]

Thank you hope, would that include Lavaquin? Well this might finally get rid of the chest pains. It explains a lot of the problems that I have been having with stress. Hopefully now that it is finally being addressed it will get better. I have taken way too much doxy, and minocycline already.
But I am seeing a big improvement with my therapy now.
I am not looking forward to the 5 hours of IV stuff next week, just boring.
Hey did you get the information hope that I posted about the patches? It is to keep the mosquitos and ticks and bugs off of you? I am not going without one. And have one on my Lilly as well. It is not harmful like the deet and makes the bugs want to go else where. Since I am a mosquito magnet, I am most concerned now about after going through all of this treatment, getting re-infected. Again and again.
