I'm back! Always something new and exciting in the life of a chronic lyme sufferer.
I'm still feeling great (there is hope!). Energy great, mind clear and happy, exercising.
But I developed a very painful spot on my head. Like it hurts to even move my hair. about the size of a donut. Not a headache. Doesn't hurt until I touch it but WOW. Went to the dr. cause I was afraid of a stroke or tumor. The nurse came in and said right away the same thing happened to her and after about 2 weeks, shingles broke out on her face. Then LLMD came in and said she thinks its more nerve pain caused by the bartonella. I have quite a bit of peripheral neuropathy in all different spots. She agreed to run both tests. Shingles test IGM was negative but IGG was positive. ?? was it too early for shingles test. We are 10 days out now and no outbreak. Still waiting for bartonella test result.
I am taking anti-viral as well as back on bactrim for the bart.
Has anyone had anything similar ? Thanks.
