I would say a definite yes on bartonella, as it can cause bone pain pretty much anywhere.
Mold can cause MARCONS which can be nasal or dental.
A doctor well versed in the Shoemaker protocol for CIRS should be able to help you uncover mold and MARCONS issues.
Regardless of what doctors state or tests reveal (or don't reveal), trust your instincts and observation skills above those. For example, if an ERMI or HERTSMI-2 test comes back as "acceptable" according to Shoemaker, it doesn't mean it's acceptable to you. His "acceptable" numbers apply to probable safety for reentry for those who have successfully treated and are recovered. Labs are supposed to be done at strategic points prior to and after reentry. If labs show a recurrence of inflammation post reentry, then the environment is not safe and further remediation/cleaning is required.
A lot of people (doctors included) don't understand or follow that, probably because it's time consuming and expensive.
The HERTSMI-2 on my house was 10 - the maximum considered "safe," and that was prior to any remediation. My house was making me sick, but if I had blindly convinced myself it couldn't be my house because the HERTSMI-2 was 10 and had stayed and done nothing, I would be dead now, and my parents who lived there probably would be, too, and they don't have Lyme symptoms like I do.
Furthermore, according to Shoemaker, OSHA considers a Total ERMI score (Group I plus II) over 30 a cause for concern. Both my house and workplace were over 30. The OSHA guidance is for "regular people," not those with CIRS, Lyme/co, genetic susceptibility, etc. Sick people will stay reactive to much lesser levels of mold.
Sorry for the long post. I just feel that needs to be said.
Mycometrics is the lab I've used for all my ERMI tests. I've tested 5 buildings so far.
