Yes, I was treating prior to pregnancy.
I’ve read that cord testing is inaccurate because it would show my blood antibodies? Not sure if this is true for sure.
My LLMD told me to not worry about bartonella becaus most people’s immune systems keep it in check. Hmm.
But do you think the burning in the mouth is from infection or is it some kind of mast cell activation going on? Allergy to something? So tricky!
Sorry - I see in your first post that you were treating prior to pregnancy.
Cord testing is the standard - I’m surprised your LLMD did not suggest you get it done.
The test is a pcr test (not antobodies) and a positive means infection - as the DNA of the bacteria is seen.
If you passed the infection on to your baby (since you weren’t treating while pregnant) then you will want to know and have your baby evaluated by a Pediatric LLMD - you do not want an infection to go unchecked/untreated for years.
