I never tested pos for Bartonella, but suspect I might have it. I have been on Zhang's for 4 1/2 months and have seen progress. The foot pain is gone now (one of the things I thought might be Bart related). I plan on having my reg doctor do a CD57 the end of feb to see if it has gone up. I had one done when I was first diagnosed.
Physinvent, Are you doing Zhang's? If so what do you think of it?
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol
