My current symptoms are foot pain and some mostly low grade joint pain. The joint pain is primarily in the wrists, but sometimes i feel it in the other big joints. I just finished a heavy metal chelation with DMSP. My symptoms got worse while I was doing the chelation. I don't know if that was because of mineral depletion, or if it helped break up biofilms and allowed bacteria to roam around free. It's been a few weeks since my last chelation. I'm doing mineral replacements, and I'm starting to feel a bit better. Here is my current treatment protocol: 1 DS Bactrim/twice per day, 1 HH-2 capsule/three times per day, 20 drops samento/twice per day, 20 drops cumanda/twice per day, 15 drops burbur/twice per day, 200 mg nattokinase/twice a day. I was on the bactrim for three months over the fall. I tried going off of it, but my symptoms worsened very quickly. I had pretty intense multiple joint and foot pain within two days. I think it was from bartonella because that seemed to quickly an increase in symptoms to be from lyme. I then went on rifampin for two months. I was getting better but I had to stop it because of an interaction with another medication. So now I've been back on the bactrim for about
3 weeks. I've been on the samento for over a year- the hh and cumanda for almost 3 months. I just started the nattokinase to help break up biofilms. I was on serrapeptase before that. I haven't had a lyme herx since about
august. I also have what feel like these bartonella die off effects every time I start a new treatment. I get really irritable and the foot pain gets worse. So those things makes me think my symptoms are mostly coming from bartonella. Does that sound like a correct assessment of the situation? Does anyone have any ideas for other treatments I can try? Overall I'm feeling pretty okay. I can work and exercise, but I would like to be able to get off the pharmaceutical antibiotics some time soon. So any advice would be appreciated.
