Hello!

I am wondering what kind of foot pain is caused by Bart? My foot issues started out as plantar fasciitis 2 years ago (got it from running)...

I've tried PT, many forms of treatment, including shockwave therapy (ESWT) and a cortisone shot, nothing seems to work for very long.

I was just diagnosed with Lyme, Bart, etc. Now I think the soles of my feet are not healing due to bart? The pain is a dull ache across my heals and arch... sometimes I feel the pain at the attachment point for the plantar fascia as well.

I have another appt with my podiatrist Monday morning.... so I am wondering what is typical for foot pain/sore soles from Bart?

Thanks for your input!!

Yes, this is classic Bart.

Vitamin B12 may help with the pain at the point of attachment.

From my experience, only toxic metals (gravity!) caused this problem. You may want to check into that aspect. I used to have a very real problem with Bartonella. Bartonella was long gone, while the metal toxicity persisted.

Take good care.

Gigi,

So if one has foot pain relieved by Nettle Leaf and exercise, would metals still be the issue and not toxins from Bartonella??

Just curious,

Thanks for the info about B12... I started that 2 weeks ago, so maybe that will help. I was tested for heavy metals and thankfully, the results were all negative.

Razzle, If the metals were removed from the body (not an easy task!), they may not be the issue.
That is something only ART testing or similar can answer over a period of time. Metals do not move quickly. And Bartonella is a tough infection.
Exercuse helps, but it only mobilizes, and the rest is up to the body. Metals take a lot of patience.

happydaychick, depending on which type of heavy metal testing you did, that may be a good answer for you. As a rule, the toxic metal testing we have available today is inconclusive just as testing is is for Lyme and infections. Permanent freedom from meuro symptoms will tell. Often the body is not able to release metals and usually Lyme and toxic metals go hand in hand. I have never seen it any other way. Only few doctors are knowledgable on this subject. www.klinghardtacademy.com has a lot of info on the subject.

A hair test and a healthy mineral balance tells a lot whether metals are a problem. Hopefully you have no and never had any metal in your mouth.
Energetic testing will eventually show them, but not all the time.

I hope you get a clear answer. so that metal toxicity does not hold you back as it did me and many others. We keep thinking Lyme while actually that is not a big problem any longer.

Best to all.

Has anyone else's bart symptoms increased in the past few days? A full moon is coming up and my bart symptoms are coming back.

I think I may have a bart like organisim that just might be a parasite. This has happened to me before between the new moon and full moon (going to try more anti parasitics tonight).

My husband's severe foot pain is nearly all gone, Mepron did the trick within a month or so.

My foot pain is mostly gone, too, although there is still numbness. There was a time when I could not stand to have my feet touched, could not wear shoes. Pins and needles pain was horrible. Walking in the morning was nearly impossible.

Neither of us has any more metal fillings. It really does seem that the abx will eventually fix it. Hope you have good luck, too.

My doctor said it's all anecdotal evidence and there's nothing to suggest it's Bartonella. It was one of those things I always read on forums but she really stressed it's dangerous to think you have something based on such a common symptom. I tend to agree with her.

My feet pain responds to rife bartonella freq. no doubt in my mind that it is bart related.
