I am French and my message is translated because my English is not perfect. I hope you understand.
I have all the symptoms of SFN but not yet confirmed. In December 19 I started to have terrible burning feet and itchy hands. I couldn't stand shoes or socks. Then in 4 months it started to leave on its own to leave me alone for 7 months.
I have had confirmation of lyme (relapsing fever), traces of barto, mycoplasma, as well as other reactivations. Candidiasis, according to the doctor. No autoimmune cause according to LLMD.
I saw a neurologist who told me that SFN is idiopathic.
I changed LLMDs because after 4 months, I couldn't stand the treatments of the 1st. My body was burning all over me, not just my feet and hands. The back, the face, the eyes, the stomach.
I didn't think it was this SFN that was coming back in force, I was thinking of Herxes or the evolution of Lyme.
My new LLMD started out by trying to treat candidiasis first. I had too many burns and he changed the treatment by adding an abx. There he wants to attack the bartonnelosis with rifampin and other abx / plants treatment.
My body is burning all over me it's hell. This has been going on for several months.
Strangely enough, last week I was on vacation by the sea and my pain has decreased by over 50%. They came back in force on their way home.
I am losing hope more and more to cure myself or relieve these burns. Can Bartonnelose be the cause of this SFN? is this Lyme?
I have a lot of bart symptoms and I'm finding more and more of them and getting interested in them. SFN is he part of it?
Can Abx increase SFN burns?
I don’t know much about
SFN.. but I have had some burning while treating these infections.
I was told by the neurologist that I didn’t have it but he didn’t do a biopsy.
I do believe my dominant infection is Bartonella and that’s the source of my nerve pain.
Have you tried putting cold towels or ice packs on the burning areas ?
You might be able to get some relief .
