I've been suffering from nasty episodes of aseptic meningitis lately since treating babesia (burning brain, dementia-like confusion, nausea, light sensitivity etc) as well as increased neuro symptoms and suspect that a bartonella flare is the cause.

If anyone here has experienced anything like this did you recover by being more aggressive with your bart treatment or by backing off of all treatment, detoxing until you felt better and then slowly building up again? I'm honestly not sure which path to go down!

I'm already doing all of the usually suggested basic detox things and taking a variety of anti-inflammitories and neither really seem to be making a dent in my symptoms. I know the advice on this site is usually to go slowly and detox but is there sometimes a need to be more aggressive?

I guess my biggest worry is that I'll find out my symptoms are actually caused by toxicity and that by treating more I'll only make myself worse!

Many thanks

Oh, boy. The million dollar question. I've been going through this same dilemma for months now. At times I get the feeling that I need to increase herbs to subdue the symptoms, but I'm so afraid of making the herx or flare worse, that I chicken out. There have been times when backing off on the doses has helped, but the longer I treat, the less that seems to work. That's one reason why I feel like I probably need to take higher doses, even if I pulse the higher doses to get the symptoms under submission. I get psych and head stuff, too, and bouts of rage. When the brain inflammation gets worse, mold and chemical sensitivities get worse, rage kicks in along with bouts of despair and wanting to die, so of course I walk softly and am not too keen on taking risks for that reason.

I don't get the dementia type confusion or nausea, though. That sounds awful. I take anti inflammatory supplements and epsom salt baths. Kudzu root seems to help the brain burning and brain inflammation for me, but it's a dance.
