Recently diagnosed with neuro Lyme and bartonella. Marijuana makes neuro symptoms worse but its suppose to help. Is there something else going on?

Antibiotics: How about appropriate treatment with IV antibiotics and staying off the weed. I assume they did a lumbar puncture and the tests on the spinal fluid confirmed active lyme disease. If not, see an infectious disease specialist. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ Lyme disease, bartonella, & babesia. Have noticed increasingly stiff & painful neck w/ head pain & pressure for past 3 days w/ fever ranging btwn 99.6 & 100.5. Are these symptoms typical?

YOU ARE NOT 15 MIN!: I agree that you should not assume the neck pain is Lyme spasms, and get to ER. We would like to propose that while Babesia can raise temps, Bartonella can be immunosuppressive-floats in blood--you do not die. A fever with Bartonella I would take seriously. My wise MD friend is right. If 3 infections--missed one? ER. As Fallon, MD Columbia recently posted-ticks are infection bus-over 1-3 bugs. ...Read more

Could bartonella cause demyielination lession by itself without having Lyme too?Did lots Lyme wb tests and are negative.Just bartonella is present

Might have Lyme: Bartonella can cause many neurological symptoms; i don't know if it causes demyelinating lesions. However, 20-30% of those with lyme do not show positive WB tests, so negative tests do not rule out lyme. Did your WB test the 31 & 34 bands? If not get one that does (igenex). The WB measures immune response. Those most ill may be negative. Taking anti-lyme herbs/antibiotics may turn the WB positive. ...Read more

Can i tell me how i can get rid of a bartonella rash?

Can i tell me how i can get rid of a bartonella rash?

GOOD QUESTION-debate: VEGF and other chemicals can be involved in skin and blood vessel change. 1) A debate over treatments.
