When a person presents neurological symptoms and characteristics of an ALS, such as fasciculations, atrophy in the tongue, strange papillae etc ... these symptoms are more associated with borrelia or bartonella?

I know there probably are different opinions....but in my case, I went through some pretty severe neurological symptoms, I truly thought I was going to die, I'm sure others feel or have felt that way too.

.....hold on there a minute, I forgot how much emotion comes back when talking about that horrific time...

Holy moly, I am so much better now , I need to thank God every day of my life going forward instead of looking at how I am still struggling to get to 100 %

I had stroke like symptoms but not on one side, both sides, full Body heavy Numbness,Waves of intense hot numbness, Felt like my head was being crushed in by the waves of numbness, intense ear thumping/pulsing,difficulty swallowing, forgot words, mixed up words, brain fog,off balance when walking,tons of muscle twitching, my insides felt sore and infected,vision issues,episodes of almost blacking out,skin issues;cherry spots, liver spots, bart scratches/marks, scalp issues and one first significant issue was a major vibration episode in my brain/head one night at bedtime.

I apologize for venting so much but thank you so very much for your question that woke me up again to what is important in this battle....hope and coming to a place of peace with all of this, but still having strength to keep up the battle and be grateful for the good.

Anyway to answer your question:

I blame the worst of it all on Bartonella.
