I have MCS, too. I tested positive for Lyme and ehrlichia, but most of my symptoms seem to be related to bartonella.
I also have CIRS from mold exposure and HLA-DR genetic types that are multi susceptible to all biotoxins and the specific gene for borrelia.
I am a very poor detoxer.
Looking back, I've always been sensitive to smells and especially smoke. I've also had signs of bart since infancy or early childhood.
My chronic Lyme symptoms started in 2009. It was then that I got fragrance out of my environment. This was when the chemical sensitivities became noticeable and started to affect my life.
In 2015 after a respiratory virus, my symptoms went full throttle and the chemical sensitivities started to really interfere with everyday life and at work. In Sep 2016, I was diagnosed with CIRS from mold and left my moldy house and workplace. At this point, the chemical sensitivities got even worse and became painful and miserable. They get much worse when herxing. The worst they ever were was when I took cholestyramine for 11 days to detox mold. I had to stop because it was unbearable. That was in Nov 16. I still have the sensitivities. I hope and pray I can get rid of it eventually.
