I´m from Germany and having lyme disease - which never was the main problem - and bartonella - which IS the main problem, I think.
After a long time with no symptoms I relapsed in 2016. Suddenly I got histamine intolerant and for a
long time I didn´t realize where the dizziness came from, until I noticed a connection to certain fruits (avocado), vegetables (aubergines) and fermented things like parmesan. On a low histamine diet I lived a nearly normal life. Now I wanted to attaque the source of my food intolerance, which in my opinion is bart related and two weeks ago I started drinking a tea made of houttuynia and what shall I say... I´m feeling worse.
My heartbeat is set up to 65 bpm (normally I´m having 51 bpm (I´m doing a lot of sports.), I´m really exhausted, my little joints (toes and fingers) hurt from time to time and I got a scratch mark in my neck. My tinnitus increased and I´m having a little stomach and back pain. My joint cracking is indescribable.
I´m drinking two cups of the tea per day (one in the morning and one in the evening) - 3 grams on three cups. Additional: During the day I try to drink a lot of purified water, am taking milk thistle, am on a sugar free diet and am taking opc and msm.
Should I stop the tea? Is this exhausted feeling normal? Did anyone of you go through the same feeling?
Is this just coincidence?
I´m sorry for all the questions. I registered here because in Germany the information on bartonella is very poor.
