Momtothree - I too share the ms symptoms along with extreme anxiety, constant crying and depression (who wouldn't be?!). I am on Mepron, Plaquenil, and zithromax. I will probably need to be treated for bartonella. From what I read, all the mood symptoms are strong indicators of this coinfection and some say this should be treated first to get the mood symptoms in check in order to deal/handle the rest of the treatment. I, too, tested negative for coinfections.
As for short circuits, I have had moments where I cannot get a particular word out or forget what I wanted to say. I'm going to have to be more aware of this.
Also, from all I read, what seems to be brought up over and over again on this forum is the need to build up your immune system and be sure your hormones/adrenals/thyroid are being handled. I don't have all the answers on building the immune system while we are feeding our bodies heavy abx which knock the immune system down further. I'm doing my best diet wise and detox wise. I did go to an endocronologist and am going through the adrenal, hormone, thyroid testing. I do believe that if I can build my immune system up and work on keeping the others in balance, hopefully that will help me get over this. Interestingly enough, I went through adrenal testing last year through another doctor which revealed extremely low seratonin levels and cortisol levels which were never addressed by supplements etc. From all that people write, there seems to be a strong connection with lyme, the immune system, hormones, thyroid and adrenals. I think this is a factor in my anxiety and depression.
