Babesia has caused me difficulty breathing and sometimes very scary. Maybe it is the Lyme, I don't know, but I found a lot of symptoms of Babs and air hunger and difficulty breathing were always listed.
I also had an extremely severe eye infection that lasted over a month. I saw the top cornea specialist iin our area, yet I do't think he ever figured out what was wrong -- I had to go to him almost every day, as it worsened every day. They changed my meds every other day. I felt like a guinea pig.
This Dr never had any great insight -- some of his treatments made it worse and were then immediately changed. I feel positive this had to do w/ Lyme, altho the Dr stated it was a virus, so it could have come from my CEBV or one of the other Herpes infections I have. Some days he said he was treating me as if it was Herpes and others he denied that.
The pain that comes and goes in my eyes now feels either that the infection is not completely cured and/or I now have glaucoma, which he is NOT treating.
To reiterate, difficulty breathing and air hunger has always been associated w/ Babs in everything I have read. Doesn't mean I'm not worng. Lyme kicks all our 'A's uniquely.
