Yesterday I had my 4th or 5th BVT session.
I've tolerated the previous sessions quite well.
I've been getting 2 stings per session on the shoulders for some time now. Not very regularly I must admit. Last time I got 3 stings and tolerated it quite well. Only a minor herx.
OK so yesterday I got 3 stings from 3 different bee hives. Not sure how smart that was.
Anyways I supposedly tolerated all 3 stings and felt great that evening.
Went to bed quite late but slept pretty tight until 8am ( thank you bees) . Suddenly jumped out of bed with lots of pain, fatigue, weakness. Throughout the whole entire day I felt like crap, as if I'm becoming sick if that makes any sense lol. It definitely wasn't a typical herx reaction. Morning temp was normal but evening temp is slightly elevated at give or take 100° F
Which actually is the highest body temperature I've achieved in years I think ( you know the darn Lyme, bartonella & co are always suppressing my fever). I usually only reach 99.5° F ( the typical bartonella temperature AFAIK).
OK so the 2 sting sites on the shoulders look as expected. Slightly reddish without any significant swelling or pain. These 2 sting sites have been stung before unlike the forearm.
The 3rd sting site on my forearm on the other hand looks very swollen and dark red. It doesn't really hurt much, only a bit of itching. Should I be worried?
Overall I've been feeling less miserable this evening when compared to during the day. The extreme fatigue and weakness have subsided somewhat as well as the body aches. Body temperature is currently at 99.5°F .
Did I get reinfected by a mosquito or something or was the bee sick? Was the stinger infected with some kind of antibiotic resistant streptococcus strain or whatever?
Why did I feel so sick today? I felt perfectly fine yesterday and the day before. Yes unfortunately I was also bitten by a darn mosquito last night but what the hell happened to the incubation period? 12-24 hours?! Oh come on! You've got to be kidding me.
Am I out of the woods yet or will this develop into yet another nasty chronic infection?
Or was the whole episode just some sort of reactivation of my preexisting disease(s) that was triggered by the BVT?
Thanks for answers.
