I am wondering if anyone has neurological lyme related to difficulty walking and speech issues. I am being treated for Babesia and I am not sure if my symptoms are Cerebellar Ataxia or Babesia or if Lyme is a cause of Cerebellar Ataxia? If anyone has any personal experience or knowledge to share with me, please do.

I'm pretty sure Lyme can cause it. Babesia can make you feel like you are on a rocking boat.

Are you being treated for Lyme also?

Yes, I began treatment the end of November seeing a LLND with Clarithimycin and Ceftin, and just started with a new LLMD who switched me to Minicycline and Malarone 2 days ago to start to treat the Babesia. I have felt light headed since starting these however so assuming its a side effect or one or both and hoping it disipates after a few days because I have been very eager to start treating the babesia due to over 2 years of great difficulty with walking/balance.

Is it normal that it resolves after its in your system a while? I have had several people say it is also probably a herx reaction?

It CAN take awhile to get used to it. It's one that should be started in low doses and ramped up.
