Your post reminded me of something interesting that happened to me that I'll share with you.
A few years ago, when my infection was at its worst, my wife and I flew to visit some relatives. At the airport I had to go through the new scanners where they can see your whole body. Well, when I got scanned, it showed that I had something dense and foreign in both of my quadriceps/front thighs. The scanner doesn't show detail like an x-ray machine, it just uses color to show density. Both quadriceps showed red to indicate an alarm.
I was pulled to the side and the TSA person did a physical pat of my things and ran the hand-held metal detector over my front. There was nothing there, just my jeans and legs. Nothing in my pockets either. When I was pulled to the side I saw the image and my frontal thighs were colored in red where the rest of the body was green. I asked them what it had shown and they said that the machine had detected an anomaly so I had to be manually scanned.
Up to this day I wonder if the machine actually detected my Bartonella infection.
At that time I was having such awful Bartonella symptoms. I remember that at night I had to sleep in a fetal position because my legs would hurt being stretched out. When I walked, my thighs would feel burning pain at the muscles/nerves.
Wow, that is very interesting. I'm travelling again in a week...maybe they'll show something when I'm scanned too!!!
