The following signs/symptoms may be present in those infected with Babesiosis:

***********************

Fatigue

Arthralgias

Myalgia

Drenching sweats

Headaches

Emotional lability

Depression

Dark urine

Splenomegaly

Dizziness

Nausea and vomiting

Cough

Dyspnea

Fever

Chills

Hepatosplenomegaly

Jaundice

Malaise

Shortness of breath

Bleeding tendencies, bruising

Thrombocytopenia

Hemoglobinuria

Hyperesthesia

Pulmonary edema

Encephalopathy

Low to normal range leukocyte counts

Possible elevated levels of dehydrogenase, bilirubin,

transaminase*

Anorexia

Approximately 25%- 66% of Babesia patients are known to be co-infected with Lyme disease. These symptoms may continue for long periods of time, decrease, then return. A low Babesiosis titer (IgG) often indicates a chronic infection.

An acute or current infection may show a higher reading on the IgM test initially. There are over 100 species of Babesia in the United States but only ONE or TWO species are currently checked by commercial labs.


BARTONELLA SYMPTOMS

******************

GENERAL: Fatigue, Restlessness, Combative behavior, Myalgias, Malaise, Liver and/or Spleen

involvement, Abdominal pain, Infectious Mononucleosis-like Syndrome, Granulomatous Hepatitis

BRAIN: Encephalopathy may occur 1-6 weeks after the initial infection and is fairly common in patients

with Bartonella.

Note: Approximately 50 percent of patients who develop Encephalopathy can be affected

by seizures (from focal to generalized, and from brief and self-limited to status epilepticus). Headaches, Cognitive Dysfunction, and CNS Lesions may be evident.

RASH AND LYMPHADENITIS: Erythematous papules (red splotches or slightly raised red spots) may

develop. Such papules occasionally occur on the lower limbs but are more common on the upper limbs, the

head, and neck. The papules may appear on the skin or mucous membranes.

Bartonella may also cause subcutaneous nodules, with some bone involvement possible. The nodules may show some hyperpigmentation, be tender, fester, and/or be enlarged or swollen, but not always.

EYES: Conjunctivitis, Bartonella Neuroretinitis, Loss of Vision, Flame Shaped Hemorrhages, Branch

Retinal Artery Occlusion with Vision Loss, Cotton Wool Exudates, Parinaud’s Oculoglandular Syndrome,

and Papilledema.

BONES AND MUSCLES: Osteomyelitis, Myositis, Osteolytic Lesions (softening of bone), Myelitis,

Radiculitis, Transverse Myelitis, Arthritis, Chronic Demyelinating Polyneuropathy.

HEART: Endocarditis, Cardiomegaly.

Possible lab findings: The following may show up during standard testing:

Thrombocytopenia, pancytopenia, anemia, elevated serum alkaline phosphatase level, elevated bilirubin, abnormal liver enzymes.

X-ray of the bone may show areas of lysis or poorly-defined areas of cortical destruction with periosteal

reaction. Cardiomegaly may show up on a chest X-Ray.

Biopsies of lymph nodes reveal pathology often indistinguishable from sarcoidosis.

***********************************

Reports of biopsies strongly suggestive of lymphoma do occur.

Tests occasionally show an enlarged liver with multiple hypodense areas scattered throughout the

parenchyma.

The chiropractor told me that most of the tightness in my upper back came from the lymph nodes along the sides of my neck sweling. They are going down, but it is taking time for the tightness to subside.

It's confusing, because it seems so many symptoms of each infection overlap.

What are the best tests for co-infections and how reliable are they?
Lyme in NC in 1971? Suspect TBI: Fully engorged tick followed by high fever and tonsillitis. Follwed by , lumps on neck,  chronic tonsillits w/ constant low grade to recurring high (104) fevers, severe unexplained neck stiffness and acute neck pain.   Followed by tonsillectomy, urinary tract infections, miscarriage, appendicitis while pregant, chronic severe back pain. Followed by depression, mild anxiety, mitral valve prolapse, and hypglycemia.  What was this??
 
Bit again couple of times, lyme suspect bite Mother's Day 2007. Bite, symptoms, lyme specific antibodies on the most lyme specific band of all = 39 IgG.  Still awaiting appt w/ LLMD.
