I just found this on another forum:
Found that very interesting. I have bartonella and have been feeling anger/rage again. I almost laughed at that one post about the child with tiger eyes and rage.
I've been saying all this time that I think I was born with the bartonella. Well my mother has glaucoma now, which is caused from optic nerve damage, which can be caused from bartonella.
Lucky for me, I just had a complete eye exam a few weeks ago, and it was better. Last year the doctor said something looked funny in my optic nerve and did al special image exam of the optic nerve. That was done again this time, and the areas that looked bad last time are now normal.
That's good you're having regular exams to check your optic nerve.
I've had it done once...thanks for the reminder - I should have a retest.
I told the Ophthalmologist I had lyme and she recommended that she look at the optic nerve and also had me do the Visual Fields test.
My LLND and i had a discussion on bartonella - I most likely got it as a young child...but managed to maintain good health throughout my life - except for a few anomalies. like the high bilirubin I got in my teen years...that went away with bart treatment....and some other 'stuff'. I grew up not being a morning person because I always felt nausea upon waking....so never had breakfast.
Maybe that was bart.
Had many, many cats growing up..and in particular one really bad cat bite - that I had to go to the Dr. for - it was infected so bad.
