So I'm really lost right now. It's been 5 months on my full treatment of Doxy, Azithro, Rifapin, Tinidazole, and Flucanozole for my Lyme/Bart combo and things were looking great. I was becoming more aware of my symptoms and how they were disappearing, I was understanding what was and wasn't anxiety, and I was starting to feel really confident that this would be all over soon. Especially the weeks when my anxiety was my lowest, I felt (gasp) normal again. Said optimism also comes from the fact that I was *extremely* fortunate to get help only 1 month after the tick bite, so my projected recovery is under a year.
But within the last few weeks, everything has gone to hell. I've had 4 panic attacks in the last 10 days, I am extremely agitated and sensitive to lights/sounds when I'm not in my house, I'm developing separation anxiety because those last 4 panic attacks occurred by myself; it's just all crazy, crazy amounts of anxiety.
The only new symptoms I've had since this spike are these really irritating rashes/pin-prick sensations that increase my body temp and headaches that come on more frequently, but that's it.
So is this just Bartonella giving its final farewell show? Did I uncover another coinfection that was lying dormant? Or am I just in the general Lyme loop of fun?
My current plan is to try to get on some anti-anxiety meds ASAP, but I just feel so bad b/c it felt like I *almost* there and now the anxiety makes it feel almost back to square one :(
