So I've been treating Lyme and Bartonella for over a year, this really improved a lot of my physical and neuro pain type of symptoms I had. But I'm still stuck with symptoms such as brain fog, depersonalization, depression and vission issues. I also started getting hot flashes and feeling warm at night during treatment.
So I asked my LLMD to try Babesia treatment despite my test for it being negative, to see if that can help with these remaining symptoms. I just started Malarone 4 days ago (Sunday), and I've been getting a flare up of old symptoms coming back, the physical and neuro pains. I always assumed those were because of lyme or bartonella, is it possible to get these kind of flares from babesia too? I guess I should also mention that during the last weekend when I started the Babesia treatment I also cheated on my strict really low sugar diet which I've been on for quite a while and ate lots of sugars. I've read high amounts of sugar can cause flares, so I'm wondering if it could be just that I'm dealing with right now?
I'd like to know your opinions, thanks.
It could be that the leftover bits of bart/lyme could be flaring now that you’re hitting Babs.
My LLMD says Babs needs to be treated before the rest will fall.
Plus there is a lot of overlap with these infections.
