I was just going through my list of current symptoms, and am seeing the same ones come up a lot.

Of these symptoms, do you think they represent Lyme, Babesia, or Bartonella. As of right now, I have only treated Lyme and Babesia (still treating)

- PVC's (heart palpitations)
- Vertigo

- Intolerance to Fluorescent Lights (dizziness and panic symptoms)

- Panic Attacks (shortness of breath, dizziness, feeling hot, and feeling like I'm going to pass out). Never had before I got Lyme.

- Costochondritis
- Muscle Fasciculations/Spasms
- GI issues
- Nausea
- Some brain fog
- Fatigue - New symptom

Panic attackes are definatly bart related and so are PVC's. So is fatigue. Not sure about the others.

Don't you wish this stuff was black and white???

I've had all of that and so far have tested positive for Lyme and Bartonella.

HI Bella,

 

Do you monitor your blood pressure? I realized these symtoms were not panic attacs but were felt when my pressure when up, I am on two blood pressure meds and feeling much better. Try to get a reading in the morning and while you get these weird feelings

Bella,

You know I've noticed in some of your other posts that you and I have very similar symptoms. I can tell you that my anxiety was bad when I was first infected, then it leveled off and didn't reappear until I started treating Bart. When I first started Levaquin, my anxiety was through the roof. I had a panic attack on a plane (NO FUN)...and that kick-started the whole anxiety thing. As I've treated Bart, my panic has diminished (though it is not completely gone), my fatigue has disappeared, and the fasciculations are barely noticeable. Even my palps and shortness of breath have diminished.

So, I would lean toward Bartonella, but I think Lyme is always there and could certainly be attributed to those symptoms as well.

twitching is the Borrelia for sure. Can't say for certain for any of the others since there can be so much sx overlap.
