lymie mom - He doesn't think I have Babesia, because my symptoms seem to line up more with bartonella.
I have read that Babesia usually (not always) - is more sudden onset and you feel really unwell.
Thanks for the link - listed under Bartonella symptoms - was sweats. So, it's hard to figure.
My Dr. is leaning more towards bart because I have a lot of nervous system issues. - nerve pain, buzzing/vibrations, shivers, anxiety (minor now since treatment),
Also, my circulatory system is affected. (I sometimes have venous pooling on the tops of my feet).
Utah - sounds like you herxed from the Rifampin - I would think that's leaning toward Bartonella?
It's all such a puzzle.
