I was wondering if anyone has had these symptoms and what infection could be associated.

From the start of my illness I started having balance issues that progressively got worse.

The feeling of being in a elevator that has dropped down two floors. My head feels stuffed with cotton and I walk like I am drunk.


I not sure if this would be classified as feeling tipsy or walking onto a cloud.

My blood pressure is always elevated on the diastolic side and when I walk or stand my heart rate will jump into the hundreds.


I'm on rifampin and Biaxon for Bartonella treatment and I am concerned my symptoms are more Babesia.

This is so hard sometimes and I just feel like it will never get better.

Thank you for reading my post and for everyone who helps on this site.

ballance issues could be associated with inner

ear infections(swimmers ear)also the blocked

sensations. These could also be associated with

neuroborreliosis causeing vertigo which a lot of

patients experience from one degree to another

plus tinnitis(or ringing or sounds in the ear)

audio-sensativity....could all be related to

"just" lyme or Bb(spirochete) infections.

A good place to look for symptoms is Dr B's

2005 guidelines which you should have copied

off of here in one of the blue underlined

threads.

These are very lyme101 ish questions and should

be written down to discuss with your llmd.

If you don't have one....get one.

Discuss these symptoms with the llmd off of the

detailed "diary" you should be keeping as a way

of remembering experiences with this or these

diseases.

BP issues will always occur....waxing and

waneing as does everything else....pesonally

my BP has always been the type that is messed

up due to electrical problems my neuroborreliosis

/CNS has always caused.

I am confident that the new culture tests will

shortly end a whole lot of our basic problems...

with spirochetes anyway....hang on!

hope this helps

Sounds EXACTLY like BABESIA to me.. at least those were the symptoms I had!

Check into POTS with the heart rate issues.

Tony... we now have Dr B's 2008 guidelines posted at the very top of this forum. Thanks for mentioning it to her.
