the seizures are terrible... Luckely I don't have them... I only have unexpected muscle twitches, sometimes spasms, but no seizures.
I got tested positive (PCR test) for Bartonella (only after the second or third time), and that was confirmed by a sequence test, just to be sure.
My symptoms are these (sometimes don't know what is Lyme and what is Bartonella)- I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but well) - most of them are there for over 14 years, some longer:
stomach problems (GERD), leaky gut, IBS, feeling depressed, extreme fatigue, severe brainfog, decrease of my intellectual capacities, huge amounts of heavy metals in my system, derealization, anxiety attacks, anger, irritation, arthritis, eye floaters, after images, permanent headaches (7/7), periods of OCD, worsening PMS, insomnia, overall flu like feeling, feeling as if my whole body is beaten and bruised, like run over by a truck (worse in the morning or after sitting down, after a nap), weight gain, erythema nodosum, very painful joints, swollen joints, high (never under 95/min, periods of 120-130/min) and irregular heartbeat, skipping heartbeats, red dots on skin, hairloss, small skin tags, granulomas, sometimes very short of breath, low bodytemperature, very frequent bronchitis, recurrent pneumonia, very painful feet and 'frozen' joints (especially in the morning, and after sitting down), really severe bone pains, painfull stiff muscles (all over my body), creepy crawlies all over, numb feeling in parts of my body.
I think it's a very good idea to treat your whole body, that's what I do. I personally feel like this is the best thing to do - but it's really hard...
