I have what I'm almost poositive are bartonella scratch marks in a few places on my body. Lately, Ive been feeling better.. Does this indicate that its coming back or the opposite.. just not sure why all of a sudden when feeling better I'd get these marks.. thanks :)

This is just my opinion but I think bartonella Is just like yeast. When it's being faught off, it gets mad and resurfaces. That's what happening to me right now with yeast. I've had no sugar at all but it's still trying to come out. Just my opinion....
Symptoms started in 2003 with very intense panic attacks and anxiety. Also had sound and smell sensitivities. Was in and out of the hospital from 2003-2005. Diagnosed with panic disorder. Took Lexapro for two years and symptoms never got better. Suffered off and on for years.
2007 found an LLMD and was diagnosed with Lyme. WB was negative but had ++ on Lyme specific numbers. I decided to not do treatment because I didn't know enough.
2008 symptoms came back with a vengence. Muscle pain, joint pain, floaters, stiff neck, rib pain, slow thinking, brain fog, couldn't find the right words, etc...
2009 went back to see LLMD. Diagnosed again with Lyme plus co-infections....Babesia and Bartonella.

-Chronic Lyme Disease
-Hashimotos Thyroiditis

-Biaxin 250mg to start (starting slow and working my way up)
-Ultram(muscle/joint pain)
-Thyro Complex 60mg(Thyroid)
-Caproyl(intestinal candidas),Psyllium Powder(intestinal cleansing support),Bentonite Magma(absorbent aid for intestinal detoxification)
-Plus a ton of other supplements

It could be bartonella. Are they red, purple or white? If they are colored, for sure I would think it is active. Look for other skin problems such as small red papules that look like blood blisters, crusty moles, pea size dark pigmentation on skin, skin tags, broken veins. . . Do your feet or ankles appear swollen? If you have not gained any weight it would be odd for you to have stretch marks. How do you feel mentally and emotionally?
I hope you are not getting sick again.

They look like a cat scratched me.. very thin lines.. red.. no other marks.. no swollen feet or ankles... I read that sometimes when the infection is being faught off, the marks come out?
