Sorry, microbiology isn’t my thing (though as a Lymie, it’s about
to be!) so I don’t know how to describe what’s happening.
My eyes are very dry, which seems to be common with Bart. Actually scratched my cornea and when the doc put the dye in, she seemed frustrated and said my eyeball was absorbing all the dye and she needed to use more.
Anyway, on top of that, I have been having very hard stools... BUT not constipation- I’m actually going MORE - 3-4 times a day - and it comes out quickly, but it’s hard. Sometimes fully formed, sometimes the little balls, but all hard.
Trying to drink more water... but I’m just urinating more frequently!
It’s like the water is going right through me and not being used by my body.
This is all very recent, so I don’t know if it’s a Bart thing coming out from treatment, or all the new pills I’m taking (added slowly, so no one in particular caused issues), or if my system finally crashed from of year of abx.
My appetite is crap. I started feeling like I was literally starving. I was trying to eat more - fats and protein and veg and bone broth and thought maybe my diet was too restrictive so I added more carbs, but I was ravenously hungry an hour after eating. Then suddenly eating makes me sick.
I was doing so so well and this past week has been miserable.
Diflucan (last one today)
Lots of probx
Suppose to be on Doxy but I’ve been waiting for my stomach to settle before adding it, but I can’t plateau.
current plan is to stop all Rx’s for a few days and try to reset.
I’ll call my doc, eventually, but you know you always have to go thru a receptionist and wait a day or two and the info just doesn’t get through.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
