I read on someone's blog that protomyxzoa tolerates other protozoa but is aggressive against virus' and bacteria, so it is common to have the protazoa parasite, toxoplasmosis.

This can affect your eyes. My one ongoing complaint that never goes away is red irritated eyes. It causes floaters but I have not had those. I get headaches, which this can cause. You can also get this infection from cats.

Does anyone else have it? It is treated with anti-parasitic drug daraprin.

I don't know if I have this, but reading about it is quite sobering. I mixed up with wild, feral cats in my past.

I started doing salt/C for what's left of Lyme, parasites.
Also some silver spray, which I've never done before-

I feel like I've done a lot of pharmacueticals already for parasites, so hope new protocol can get what's left.
Have you thought about it?

When you figure out the red eyes, let me know :-(

I tested PCR positive for toxoplasmosis and treated with daraprim and zithromax before beginning lyme treatment. I am also positive for protomyxzoa rheumatica.

Can I ask what lyme blog you found this information? Are you saying that if you have protomyxzoa, you may not have activated viruses or bacteria because it attacks them? That is not the case for me...

Here is the blog
http://protomyxzoa.blogspot.com/2012/07/understanding-protomyxzoa-rheumatica_12.html

This is part of what her writes:
P-myxzoa lives harmoniously with other protozoan organisms, as indicated by my positive tests for both protomxzoa and toxoplasma (gandii), but it is aggressive against bacteria and viruses.

He is not accurate in everything he writes which he implies comes from Dr. F. He says he is a patient of Dr. F and posts his diet but it is not vegan. In fact, he places fish at the top of his good foods list.

I am wondering why my eyes have never cleared up. Is it permanent damage, an infection medication cannot reach because antibodies are not crossing into the eye because of circulation (why people with cornea transplants don't need steroids) - or do I have another infection and if so what?

There are a lot of people complaining of eye problems and the LLDMs just ignore it. I also wondered if it could be Ehrlichia which causes red irritated eyes in dogs. Although doctors dismiss Ehrlichia as easily treated, in dogs if it is not caught in the early stages it can require a lifetime of antibiotics.

I have always thought I will not be well until my eyes clear up and the headaches are gone. This must be an infection that the drugs I have used did not touch.

nefferdun,

I don't know if this might apply to your eye issues or not, but I am currently trialing the IMRS mat which is pulsed magnetic therapy.

One of the die-off effects I've experienced is in my eyes, with the bottom lids almost twitching. The consultant (who is lyme-litterate) told me it was the eyes detoxing. She said patients improve their eyesight tremendously with the mat.

Another product that I think I'm going to try is an antioxidant called Astaxanthin that is specifically great for eye. It was just mentioned on another post about curcumin and inflammation.

I have never heard of the IMRS mat. I will look it up.

I take hyaluronic acid and that helps but as soon as I quit/forget things get worse.

Also the BEMER mat is supposed to be good.

We do hear a lot about eyes and LLMDs do blow it off. Have you ever tested for ehrlichia? All the TBDs can cause these problems.

I have one eye that turns red and irritated frequently. Hypercoagulation was suggested as the cause. When I started using Serrapeptase the redness resolved.

FWIW,
Karen

Listeria: this is the bacteria from raw/ lunch meat.

Toxoplasmosis: another infection from cats (sorry kitty lovers.)

Pregnant women are advised not to eat deli lunch meat, nor change any cat litter.

I've taken Bolouke and Serraptease for extended periods, did not seem to help my red eyes.

I'm going to try an eye Dr. next month, see if I can get an antibiotic eye drop...

Surprise, I tried an antibiotic eye ointment. The first day it felt soothing and I thought I found the solution but the next day it was worse.

I tested positive for Ehrlichia which causes red irritated eyes in dogs. Human doctors say Ehrlichia is a piece of cake to cure and dismiss it as soon as you are given a couple of weeks of doxy.

But vets say when animals are not treated shortly after being infected, Ehrlichia can go to the spleen when it is very hard to get rid to, often requiring lifetime antibiotic maintenance.

So maybe it is Ehrlichia even though I did several months of doxy and 3 months of Rifampin.

Sometimes I look like I have pink eye. Otherwise I am pretty much ok most of the time as long as I follow the low fat diet.
