Hi all

I have been gone so long since I was in an onlnie bearevemnt group after my husbands accident.

I am suffering from horrible anxiety, severe dizziness and the pain started in all my joints again. I went back to the LLMD and they started me on biaxin for now for babesia and lyme.

Since i am so bad with abx, they are gradually building it up but I am still afraid. Just half a pill makes me throw up all day long. I am not sure what to do. My GP tested me for babesia but no results yet. I have had the test before and it is always negative.

Is this babs, lyme or just serious grief. The llmd said grief can cause all these symtpoms too. I have not grief group in my area or anyone to talk to about this. I dont whether to treat this thing or get my head "examined"...

Today I truly feel like I cannot breathe from panic. It feels like my chest is being crushed and I am shaking all over. I am already on xanax for my inner ear disorder but it is not helping this at all. Any ideas or suggestions.

Diagnosed with chronic neuro lyme 12/10 after 30 years of vertigo.2 tick bites in 3 yrs from upstate NY. Was on omincef for nine mths..zith and rifampin stopped.Remission~ All the pain and symptoms are back and I am not treating now with biaxin.

I do beilive is BABS.I had a silent babs for decades.It was activated right when my mother died.I was in grief group and my anxiety and vomiting increased.I had than anxiety throught the roof and start chocking.I know the tightness in my chest increased and so did my anxiety and joint pain .it was lyme and babesia than followed up with bartonella ACTIVATED fully .
I ended up in Er and started passing out.I know it was Lyme and babs and bart untreated and I have had them but beeing assymptomatic.
I do beilive that VOmiting is babesia.I do not care about tests.ONLY QXCI test showed I had babs and msucle testing aproved that I NEEDED HIGH DOSAGES OF ARTEMISIN. Which I did but I never killed it fully.

I treated bart and chased lyme.NEver fully recovered but come to a certain degree functional and was in remision .My LLMD said I had no babs.But a car accident made me take blood transfusion and RBC went so low.The vomiting went out of hands and anxiety adn night sweats.It was babesia.I am now in treatment of babesia.I feel the bugs crawling.Biaixn plaquinil and Mepron is working as I became resistant and can not handle artemisin after 4 years of using it.
I had had lyme for 20 year and 20 year ago is when my vomiting started.It was babesia since thatn .I have bartonella before.

The shaking is babesia -cold chills ( lyme too ) can not breath , panic, the ear disorder is lyme .I am having and had many ear issues before I knew I had lyme.Lyme is in your head and b/c babesia is activated lyme in this areas is activated too.Lexapro did not helped when my PCP gave me 5 years ago .I started shaking all over and had epileptic case.I strted passign out vomiting severely.You need to be treated.

annier,

I can't say for sure what the cause is, although I suspect it is a tick borne disease and not the grieving that is responsible (although emotional trauma can make anything worse).

I just want you to know I am praying for you to find the path to complete healing.

Hugs!!!!

Thank you for the advice and prayers. Orginally they said to take artemisin but I never started since my husband died suddenly.

I have been so upset and lost that I just gave up on lyme. I also could not financially treat it any longer. It has gotten worse than the first time last year. I called the llmd and he wants me to start biaxin. There was another drug they wanted for malaria originally..3 days on and two weeks off(cor...?) Then they called me back quick and said they were changing it since that drug would interfer with the beta blocker I take for my blood pressure.

Many bites...I agree with the shaking. I am always freezing cold but then I wake up at night sweating from my sleep, nightmares and severe anxiety. I can be sitting fine and I feel like I have lead on my chest and a non stop dry cough all the time. People always think I have a cold but I cannot help it. It is like I am fighting to breathe.

I am going to start the biaxin slowly as they said. Just wish I could do something for the naseau?

yes the persistent cough and the sweats were on me as well.I know babs can make you cold to the bone and sweats at night.I have that too.No is not a cold that you are having is babs in lungs area and the brain spreading and activating the lyme in the areas around the neck and head.
