Since my Armin labs test result does not show which co-infections I could have, I am not sure which ones I could possibly have right now. After yesterday's thread I decided to get in touch with my doctor, if I have bartonella so she might add another antibiotic for it. When I was there she checked my throat with her hands, I guess that check is related, is not it? What is the typical symptoms of bartonella you guys experience? Somewhere I have read it suppresses immune system, my NK cells on total is 100, borderline suppressed and I do not know if it is related. Do you have any idea about it?

Did she check your throat or the sides of your neck?

Bart can cause lymph nodes to swell...
I had two swollen lymph nodes that both resolved on bart specific treatment..and have not come back.

Typical symptoms I experience: Rib pain, foot pain, and I have a lot of nervous system involvement that could be specifically bart.
I think my tailbone pain was bart, too - it resolved as well.

Some people talk about eye issues.

Excuse my English, yeah she checked my neck. My syptoms are mostly feeling an ache on my knee especially when I walk and muscle ache. Recently after the antibiotic usage, I started some light throat ache and a slight fever.
Before my treatment I had lots of neurological symptoms as well. I even had Bell' palsy and lots of neuropaty around my legs and arms. Recently I do not have this numb feelings on my arms and legs, general fatigue. I had my tests in Armin lab and it does not give me any detail about coinfections. I just want to do my best with treatment so I guess I better get in touch with my doc.
