My husband and son both have buzzing inside their head that they say sounds like bees. There is a vibrating feeling, at least with my husband.

If you have this, what meds help alleviate it? (I mean abx or herbs, not pain killers).

Most importantly, do you think it's from babs, bart, lyme or something else?

Thanks so much,

The first few weeks of treatment I felt as if my head and brain were vibrating so I'm guessing it was part of the herx. I also hear swishing noises in my ears, especially when I'm laying down. I thought this was due to high blood pressure so I purchased a monitor and experience the swishing sound even when my blood pressure is not elevated. So many strange things seem to happen with Lyme.

I will give you my opinion however it is only based on my experience since I can't get a + test on coinfections.

I think the buzzing is either babs or bart. I have had that off and on thru my 3 years of being ill. Some meds would settle it and others didn't. The meds like rocephin (aimed at lyme) didn't touch it. For me, the best drugs seems to be either doxy or mino ( tetracyclines) and biaxin and plaquenil. There are so many different strands of coinf. out there and it seems they even react differently to diff. drugs. I was on zithromax and mepron for 3 months and I was not getting better. But biaxin and plaq. are drugs that can be used on babs and I am doing better on them. Maybe tho, it is bart because that combo works on bart/Blo too. At this point, I don't know which one or if I have both. I do know that I am feeling like I am making progress on mino, biaxin, and plaq. And I have thru out my illness had the buzzing. Hope this info can be of some help.
