This was one of my first symptoms and has yet to lessen with treatment. What causes this?

Do you know what caused it? A particular infection?

Probably bart or babs. I've seen it listed under both depending on the source. All 3 B's can cause headaches. Bartonella headaches are worse pain. Babesia is described as more of a feeling of head pressure.

Ashleyann82587, since diagnosis of co-infections is so unreliable, I never tried to figure out those. I just kept on treating Lyme and eventually did things for the co-infections. I KNOW others will disagree. That is because we are not all alike and we all will need different treatments.

As for head pain. Glory did I have this. Around my eyes, behind my ear was the worst, and the lightening zaps on the top of my head.

Head pain was the reason I went to the doctor initially. I thought all kinds of bad things were happening in my head. Not one medication stopped it.

It was lyme treatment that finally got rid of my head pain. I was doing herbals and so many that there is no way to say which ONE made it go away. Frankly, I think it was a combination of all the herbs. Like herbalists say, synergy.

Just keep on treating and drink lots of water!!! Sorry, I am not more helpful.

Have you checked for lymph node swelling?

There are occipital lymph nodes.


I had one flare on bartonella treatment - just above the occipital lymph node (behind my right ear)

since youre seeing Dr P, i agree with Peteza, try not to worry too much about which infection it is....dr P will hit them all on the protocol....i think alot of people forget that there are many strains of bart, lyme etc, some discovered some not, testing bad/non-existent....so its really BabLo and BartLo (babs like organisms)...who the hell knows what that tick had...i keep trying to tell myself, that if i am reacting/herxing, then whatever i am on is hitting it....i THINK bart is my big problem, but i have tested positive for lyme and babs, not bart....so who knows....just detox and keep going....

i think it's swollen nodes in the occipital area. if u gently massage the area around your eyes you will notice instant relief.
