Hi,

For those of you with Babesia, could you tell me what your symptoms are? This is assuming that you are able to distinguish the Babesia sxs from other sxs.

Thanks,
Kania

When you say babesia does it cover babesia duncani and microti?? I was tested with babesia duncani only as it was the western strain is this true? As microti is from the eastcoast. Or it doesnt matter?

Does anyone know the cycle time of Babesia and/or Bartonella? I have what I think is a Babesia headache about every 10 days.

my Babesia and Bart overlap so much that I cannot tell most of the time.

but Lethargy - "lead suit feeling", sweating with hot and cold flashes and chills says babs for me.

Not true...the mainstream says Duncani, or WA1 (its old name) is west coast based, but Focus Diagnostics has found it all over the USA with their test via Labcorp / Quest. I'm from Mass and have it.

BTW..here is a consolidated list of Babs symptoms from various sources

The only 2 symptoms I could distinguish as Babesia were night sweats which I haven't had in several months and shortness of breath (air hunger) with occasional dry cough which I still have.

Some other symptoms which I see on that Babesia symptoms page listed above which I attribute to Lyme but who knows facial tremors/twitching, extreme fatigue, unable to regulate Blood sugar.

--------------------
I am not a Doctor and I never played one on TV, I'm just a lab rat with Lyme trying to rid myself of this horrible disease.

That previous thread covers just about everything. Reading it again there is only one thing I did not see. Babesia microti is more likely to causing the drenching sweats than babesia duncani.

I have duncani but I did not realize it because I never had significant sweating. I thought my hot flashes were from bart.

I have Babesia headaches once a month. I used to have them every 2 weeks or so but I have improved with Mepron and azithromiacin. I used to have night sweats but that has also improved.
