I've been wondering about this myself. Really high fever sent me to insist on getting tested in '92. Some where around 104F and made me so delirious my 13 year old daughter got the neighbor lady to come take care of me.
Of course the pos. antigen test "couldn't be Lyme". I the Fam. Dr.that pulled the blood for the lab put me on some kind of antibiotic for 10 days just because "I had to be having an infection somewhere...."
I walked around feverish like that during a highly stressful time, and then we moved and I had a complete breakdown healthwise. I pretty much zombied out for I don't know how long.
The fevers came back last Spring, which was enough to convince my Dr. to have me tested again and with whatever test they used it came back pos. for RMSF.
The disappeared after the 90 day doxy and zithromax, but returned in the 30 day interim I was struggling to get an appointment and get him to prescribe abx again.
So, I've been taking Flagyl for a couple weeks or more. I've recently upped it to 2xday. Low grade fevers with the extreme aching/burning muscles is hitting me again in the late evenings.
I would think between the abx and the occasional oxcodone-acetaminephen I take for unrelated severe chronic pain, the fevers would be kept at bay.
Realizing low fevers are good, that the body is trying to cook out problems, I hate the flu-like aching that comes with it.
If I ask him to have me tested for Babesia he's only going to make another face at me. What's some good natural ways to deal with it, that won't mess me up if I don't have Babesia?
