thanks for the update.
i also have low wbc on rifampin (8 months in treatment). how long since you have stopped it? my dr assured the wbc will return back in time but when you say they do not, im getting a bit worried.
when u say wbc low what does that mean? u are far lower than minimum interval value in your test?
i also have the leg pain u describe and need for moving them. that's classic bart. i am certain it's bart because i have positive b. quintana IFA test. also having a lot of shin bone pain recently.
mpost - my WBC have always been lower than range while on abx. When I take a break they come right back up. I had a 2 1/2 month break because of higher liver enzymes....and the WBC went right back up after one month.
How low we talking? Mine dipped to the mid to high 2's for awhile. But usually they're in the mid 3's.
My regular Dr. (non lyme literate) wasn't even worried. she told me she wouldn't be concerned unless they dropped to under 2.
Mine are now mid 3's while treating Babesia.
