Hi folks:

I hope all is well. I've been doing pretty well the past few months. Fingers crossed it continues.

My daughter has also been doing well. She was dx'd with Lyme, Bart, and Myco in 2015. Has been off antibiotics for a couple years and treating with MC-Bar-2 and Houttouynia.

Anyway, she's had arguably the best year since getting sick. She's effectively "normal" and feels great most of the time.

However, the past month she's noticed her fingers are twitching. It's not accurate to say her hands are shaking...that's not it. It's almost like the muscle twitches that I sometimes get in her calves she is getting in her fingers.

She can still write and do things she needs to do for school. But it's annoying to her.

I suspect this is a Bart thing (again). What's weird is how good she feels.

Anyway..should I be more concerned? We're seeing our LLMD in a few weeks and I was going to bring it up then vs call now. Thoughts?

I don't know about Bart, as I don't have it. I'm wondering whether this is a Lyme situation, since we are deficient in magnesium, which can cause the muscle twitching.

We all usually find some form of magnesium supplementation. Once I did one that caused my muscles to go completely limp!

Happy to hear you are better!

I've had that before, for me I think it was mineral/amino acid deficiency. I took apple cider vinegar and also more minerals. Sometimes though it can be parasites, so EM helps with that.
