... I test negative for Bartonella but I know they tests are very unreliable for bartonella and I have all the classic symptoms. A lot of neuro issues, and I had that petechial rash that you described. ... (41 replies)
... r is getting back to me this morning. I will probably have to have an EKG every couple of weeks if I take them together. I am not sure what else there is for the Bartonella which I think is causing most of my remaining symptoms. ... (4 replies)
... he rash and it is tiny spots but under the magnifying glass they have a center that looks like it might have fluid in it. I have not had the rash in two years. Ketek didn't make a difference. I am going on Levaquin and Septra next week. Don't know what side effects these have. ... (41 replies)

... Thank you for answering so quickly. I am filling the prescription tomorrow at work. The doctor did warn me about the pains in the tendons and hopefully it won't happen. I am currently taking Ketek, Amox/Probenecid and am doing well with those. I have a liver function test every month because of the ketek. I will look up the side effects just so I know what might happen. I have... (4 replies)
... Hi Kim, I have bartonella too. It really makes my feet hurt sometimes! ... (4 replies)
... Hi guys! I was on Ketek, but only for a short time. Maybe I'll try it again someday after I get rid of this Bartonella co-infection. I was on Bicillin shots for months. They made no difference at all - so I stopped. They weren't cheap and I never got used to having to stick myself. Peace and health to all. :angel: (4 replies)
... s. Doxy might be almost as good, and tetracycline is another option. Dr Donta, recommends treating LD with tetracycline, IIRC, and it is quite effective against bartonella as well, and probably the least expensive of this class of abx. ... (12 replies)
... hi. this is really late, but for some reason this thread just popped onto my radar. Levaquin worked wonders for me too! i took it with the biaxin and plaquenil. i never felt better! i will admit all the drug combos since then have not been nearly as effective. we're going after the babesiosis in me right now with mepron and ketek, and that is putting up a fight.

... Kim Target was not a totally bad idea. We have to get out. It would be so easy to just pull in our shell. But you have to push. I wouldn't be able to do what I do with our water garden business if I didn't push. My daughter came home from work early because school called and said Hunter was sick. It was a blessing she was here, as it was an extremely busy day. Lots of... (41 replies)
... I am sorry you are having a hard time. Hang in there as this may be another Herx. I googled Ketek and bartonella since both myself and my LLMD suspect that I have bartonella. He told me it would work on bartonella. ... (13 replies)
... me and he was pretty darn sure I have Babesiosis. He was right on the money as I finally tested positive through Igenex for lyme and Babesia. I ended up having Bartonella Henselae too. We later learned that our other dog is also infected with Bartonella Henselae. ... (34 replies)

... Sepra, does affect Bartonella and I have noticed very slight improvement. Also, I hadn't taken Flagyl for the months I was on Ketek, so I wonder what the cysts were doing. ... (13 replies)

... My "spider vein" rash thing on my legs that I am sure is bartonella does flair up from time to time. It has faded dramatically since I started the Ketek, which does have activity against bartonella. ... (19 replies)
... Hi Kim. It is very important to be tested for the co-infections: Babesiosis, both types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. It is estimated that 60% of people who have Lyme are co-infected. Some of the symptoms of Lyme and the co-infections can overlap. Babesiosis is a malaria-like protozoa illness that invades, infects, and kills the red blood... (7 replies)
... Hi dkysh, welcome to the board! I am sorry your son has Lyme disease, but it is good he has been diagnosed. Getting tested for the co-infections is very important. It is estimated that 60% of people who have Lyme disease are co-infected. Having them may affect treatment choice and progress. As someone who has had several co-infections, I know firsthand how important it... (8 replies)

... Hi stickman64. :wave: I just finished a week of work and I'm so darned tired! I'll post a short reply but know that there's a ton of info about Lyme to read and share. Sounds like you did your homework! That's terrific. Knowledge is power. 1) Is IGENEX a well established lab and are their results reliable ? Yes and yes 2) I keep coming back to ALS, even though...
