Hey guys, so I have straight bartonella symptoms. The blurry vision, shin bone pain, feet pain, terrible dissacoation, aanxiety, ect. But, I also have noticeable muscle loss on one side of my face and have had it ever since my bartonella got let from dormancy from a stressful life situation. I know this is many Lyme though but was wondering if bartonella can cause it? I really don't know what I would do. In treating bart with Rifabutin and minocycline and going on my 4th day. So far flu like symptoms, a little bit depression, fuzzy vision, and some brain fog. Its bearable.
Bels Palsy is hallmark Lyme. But, I wouldn't be surprised if bart also causes it - as bart hits the nervous system (cns and pns) hard.
Nonetheless - when you treat Bart with abx, lyme is usually covered. Minocycline is a good med for lyme and I believe rifampin also has some action on it.
