[QUOTE=ticker;3386618]Thanks Ryebeach! I have had Babesiosis, both types of Ehrlichiosis, Mycoplasma, and Lyme.

I had a severe case of Babesiosis, and had to treat it more than once. I took Mepron and Zithromax. I took Doxy for the stubborn Ehrlichiosis infections. Doctors say when co-infections are present, the symptoms of each infection are more severe. I believe this.

I live in Tennessee--a state where Lyme "does not exist!"

How are you?[/QUOTE]
Hi Ticker
I am doing okay . I came down to W Va to visit a friend and we went shopping and I am exausted with ear pain again. I can't seem to take any draft or wind in my right ear .It is certainly a long journey we all have taken . I have had a pretty decent week . The holidays seemed to bring on the symptoms more.
I have had alot of stress in the past few years dealing with the lyme a nephew that is 28 with a small child living with me and never wanting to leave and not contributing anything to help with me out of work so I just recently had the nerve to say get out and took the brunt from my husband It was not pretty since he is my husbands nephew . He makes really good money and can afford to live on his own.
So maybe without the extra catering to people and watching a 2 year old almost every day I can finally take the time to rest and heal better . The little girl brings me such joy but I do not have the energy to keep up with all of it .
I hope the zithro and mepron and levaquin combo will do the trick this time.
What were your symptoms with all of the co-infections? I also have the bartonella and Ehrlichiosis .
The neuro stuff is improving but not gone . The nerve pain continues but dr r says when we get the co-infections under control maybe this will subside and he also gave me b12 shots to take to see if we can get me a little more energy .
I can't believe how much this disease is just ignored and the sad way the doctors just will not even consider the possibility of someone having lyme
I New Hampshire where I live they did a study on the deer ticks in Rockingham County where I live through the university of nh and found that 50% of the ticks were lyme or co-infections present . Why in the world would the medical community not want to recognize this and help people before they wind up like some of us It makes no sense to make people suffer out of ignorance .
I just am grateful for people like yourself for giving all the support you have for people like myself that had no other support in the beginning and still now
Thank you so much for being there when I was in real need

Just found out from a blood test last week that my blood is 'loaded' w. Bartonella. Now on Zithromax and Rifampin. Scared but relieved to know what I'm targeting now. I just started Zithromax last week. Noticed one day of extremely bad leg pain, worse than usual, but other than that just some stomach aches. Not sure what to expect, and when to expect it (should the worst be week 4?) I'm worried that oral antibiotics are just going to ruin my insides and im wondering if i should be on IV.
Going to the support group tomorrow, I'm excited to meet people who understand.

Hi 11
I am sorry to hear your results The leg pain is most likely from the zithromax and Rifampin combo . I started on Zithromax IV and mepron in nov then the levaquin was added and my legs are killing me and my knee is swelling and I am not getting around so well these days My doctor had warned me about this because it targets your nerve endings to eliminate the bartenella and babesis with mine
Mine feels as bad as I was last year which can be scary The ear pain has returned too .I keep telling myself what I did before when I was on the IV rocephin that this in the end will make me feel better It is most likely a herxing
For your stomach issue make sure to take your meds around meal time They really get to your stomach alot and if I try to take mine without food it bombs mine out bad
I don't know if I will make it to the meeting tonight I have not been feeling good but will try
Good luck with the meeting I went to a couple up in me before and it was really helpful
Take care and keep us posted
ryebeach
Oops I forgot to let you know it is really a good idea to take a gooo probiotic while you are on treatment to ensure that you replace the good flora in your intestines while on treatment Make sure they are the refridgerated ones You can get them online or through your local health food store
