That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style. What I wonder is can we ever really rid of Babs Duncani.
The treatments just arent working as quickly as in my opinion they must.
Even if the labs showed normal I will question them, I still have lots of the symptoms as well. On p of that, I had begun to develop some GI problems from the high doses of malarone and coartem so we decided to stop treatment to see if that cleared up, that it did. Do you know an answer to a following question. Can this be persistent? Normally, most recently I had actually thought I was getting better. Notice, interestingly I was off tx for two weeks and all of my symptoms came flooding back. That’s where it starts getting very entertaining, right? Shouldn’t I stop showing positive after a while?
My labs consistently come back positive for it.
I’m on babesia treatment for almost a year now.
Is it possible for this to become persistent like Surely it’s for lyme disease?My doctor is under the impression now that lyme is gone and I’m just dealing with babesia. Even things that I hadnt had in a long time. However, I have since restarted my protocol again as long as I just dont feel like I’m better. You should take it into account. I had a three week period where I had very little symptoms. Can it become chronic and we just never can eliminate it? I was treating forever. Just think for a moment. Another study tested the Canadian blood bank supply and showed.I believe it was 80 contamination of lyme/coinfection. Besides, while taking with them their bugs, jane Doe’s grandparents get in the rv with fluffy and drive to the east coast.
Lumber from our logging operations.
August 2011 a study from Vancouver island in Canada was released showing that the song birds were carrying infected ticks from our area as they migrated.
Lots of this I don’t have answers to however the location of Babesia duncani vs your daughters travels, that’s what I can share. Anyway, beautiful Christmas trees from the NW carry insects. Just think for a moment. I appreciate the diligence put into writing and sharing your experience with us. On p of that, this should’ve been mandatory reading for all medical personnel. Well written. Certainly, healing Hugs. Thank you being so pro active for you and your loved ones. With Awareness we can be more knowledgeable of just how stealthy these organisms are. Please send a copy of this to the White House.
You are giving us the benefit of your research.
I think I got it in the early to mid ’90s.
I’ve never been to Washington state, and was infected in Massachusetts. Was diagnosed a couple of times with a rash they called shingles but it didn’t act like shingles. Have experienced dozens of the symptoms on the list. It’s a well I came back positive to this from Igenix also. She was negative at that point for all co infections through Quest. In 2009, I begged for treatment since she had bad knee pain and couldn’t walk. He blamed the encephalopathy of the brain on Hashimoto’ He did a pet scan and pet mri which showed severe hypometabolism, in 2013. Therefore he tested her for lyme through the hospital lab, and it came back negative, and said that it was all caused by Hashi’s encephalopathy vs lyme encephalopathy.
My daughter has a weak stomach which is why he ordered IV but why must she be on medicine for co infections that she has no symptoms for and why should Quest show Bart positive in March and negative in July and Igenex showed negative in March and positive in July.
I even had the advanced labs culture test and it came back positive for lyme in six days replete with pictures of the spirochetes.
That’s a fact, it’s 11 years after the original tick was found, my daughter never had a rash or fever or any symptoms noone can explain the symptoms she DOES have. Therefore, what?????? She never ld me or I should have acted on it immediately. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. We live in CT. I don’t know if I can trust these labs, and Duncani I was ld is found in the Pacific Northwest.We live one hour out of NYC. Because she was never IgG positive, that was the argument by the neurologist and infectious disease dr’s in the past that she couldn’t have lyme, the following month she was retested by Igenex with her lyme dr and it showed IGM positive and IgG bands finally showed up.
Fast forward to July 2013, and this month, it showed IgM, IgG, positive plus positive for Bartonella, and positive for Babesia Fish and Babesia Duncani.
As long as my daughter got bitten in 2002 when she was seven, I am so disgusted right now.
Therefore this was the first time a ‘co infection’ showed up. Remember, she didn’t start exhibiting symptoms until 2007 when she had a swollen foot and ankle. However, the LLMD wants to treat everything with IV rocephin, IV doxy, IV zithromax, enula drops, malarone oral and tindamax on weekends and actigall to prevent gall stones. Did you hear of something like that before? In 2012, we saw a LLMD, and she was negative through Igenex for co infections and had a few IgM bands that were indeterminate. No other symptoms consequently or all those years before. Pediatrician will not prescribe more antibiotics, she ok doxy for a month and felt better physically after she stopped the doxy, her cognitive symptoms got worse. Remember, the first lyme test was negative bec it didn’t have enough bands. She also showed positive for Bartonella through Quest’s specialized labs. Nonetheless, she had a brain spect that showed hypoperfusion of the brain in her lobes and basal ganglia. As long as she never turned IgG positive on her western blots, three other dr’s said it was not lyme.
