Thought this would be interesting to read:


Description, symptoms, and treatments of co-infections:

Babesiosis is a malaria-like protozoa illness that invades, infects, and kills the red blood cells.  Symptoms include fatigue, night sweats, chills, fever, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, headache, dark urine, muscle pain, joint pain, nausea, and jaundice.  Treatment is an anti-malarial combined with an antibiotic--often Mepron with Zithromax (or Biaxin or Ketek).
 
Ehrlichiosis is a bacterial infection that invades and infects the white blood cells.  There are two types of Ehrlichiosis:  Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) and Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis (HGE).  Symptoms include malaise, fever,
sweating, nausea, dry cough, headache, muscle aches and
pain.  Treatment is most often Doxycycline.
 
Bartonella also known as cat-scratch fever is a bacterial infection.  Symptoms include swollen, painful lymph nodes, muscle and/or joint pain, nausea, vomiting, chills, anxiety, insomnia, red rashes.  Treatment is often Levaquin or Rifampin.
 
Mycoplasma is a bacterial infection.  Symptoms include fatigue, breathing problems,
headache, muscle pain and soreness, nausea, lymph node pain, and cognitive problems.  Treatment
is usually Doxycycline, Minocycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, or Ciprofloxacin.

Just as an add-on: Bactrim and Biaxin together can be used to treat Bartonella as well. (at least, I hope it can!)
