I was just thinking after phsinvent mentioned in my babs post that different strands of babs react differently to abx. So I am wondering if readers will share where they got (or think they got) their TBI.

Mine was gotten on vacation to Table Rock State Park in southern Missouri. Very beautiful place but not thinking I want to return. mad

Outer Banks, North Carolina- camping
14 years undiagnosed Lyme. I had a bulls-eye rash following a camping trip to NC in 1994. Swollen knees and replapsing and remitting vertigo followed for the next 14 years. All Lyme tests negative. Could possibly be B. lonestari due to being bit in the South.
Just began treatment with low dose Minocycline and Benicar on 12/08.
TGF B1 and C4a very high indicating inflammation.

#1: Maryland - camping

#2: Virginia - hiking

I didn't know what was happening either time...I put the pieces together after I found out I had LD.

I don't know for sure, but I think it was in the desert in California when I was bitten by a red fire ant...I've been bitten by other critters that could have also passed along a spiral payload, too (mosquitos, fleas, spiders, black ants, horse flies, etc... but no known ticks).
Chronic Lyme Disease, Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, Anemia, Lymphopenia, intermittant Pancytopenia, chronic malabsorption/malnutrition, etc.; G Tube; Currently TPN-dependent.
Meds:  Zofran, Pulmicort, Heparin (to flush PICC line), IV Oxacillin (for G-tube site infection).
