Thanks for the bump Girlie - how long have you been back on treatment? Are you doing ok?
BabsBunny - I feel a lot of muscle pain around my shoulders and shoulder blades. I am not really depressed, but I am veryyyy moody and anxious feeling. My head also feels like it's going to explode which is how it felt the last time I was on it..
tickbite666 - since I did two months of treatment before I took a month off, I hope that it doesn't take 9 weeks to start turning the corner.. hopefully it's a little quicker since I have 8 weeks of treatment under my belt.. I think this herx came on quicker than it did when I first started. Like you said it was around week 4 when things really got bad the first round. Now since restarting I'm only on my second week and its bad.
I hope to hit bartonella after a few months of this. Especially if I don't see any improvement. If I do, then I will continue probably for 5 or 6 months.
I just started on Monday...
Actually I don't know if the first go at Babesia wasn't successful. Don't know if the leftover symptoms are babs or bart.
The Practioner has put me on babesia treatment...anyway...
So we'll see how it affects me this time. It's double the dose of Mepron...holy moly....
Oh geesh that sounds rough!! I think I read in another post that you had some tendon pain behind your knee? I am getting that now behind my right knee. Maybe I am thinking about
Actually, I should have said that my head pressure was somewhat better after my first 'go-round' at Babs..and my tinnitus is pretty much gone...I have to concentrate to hear/feel it now in my right ear...and sometimes it's faintly there.
i just didn't rid of all my symptoms...unfortunately.
I didn't have tendon pain behind my knee...but I had Baker's cysts. how about
I also had some pain on the knee itself (actually both knees) - does that count?...hehe
