No i was not tested for bart and babs. My Lyme doctor always says to me that the antibiotics he give me are good also for co infections. No i was not symptom free when i stopped but my DR. said the results are better and i should feel better (but i didnt) so he wanted to test HLA-DRB. I think he also dont know what is going on. The problem is I am from Bulgaria and here 0 people who understands from chronic lyme and i am treated from a specialist in other country.
I have inside doubts - do I have rly still Lyme or it is something else. Is it normal to drink 1 year - 2/3 antbx protocols and still no results and now even worse after that.
BTW i am starting ANTBX again and this time i will detox, diet and add herbs also.
Which antibiotics did you take for bart? And were you on an antimalarial for babesia?
Which country - Germany?
You were feeling much better with the treatment - does that not give you confidence that it's lyme?
"Is it normal to drink 1 year - 2/3 antbx protocols and still no results and now even worse after that."
But you did have results...you were feeling better...but didn't stick with it long enough...or didn't treat coinfections.
FYI - it can take longer than a year...many people are treating for 2+ years...unfortunately.
