As was mentioned in another post, doc put me on Ainia for babs but thats it except to pulse art monthly. I did get some abart as well

My question is really whether it is common to treat for babs and lyme or bart at same time?

The reason I ask is because some symptoms of both or either bart or lyme (hard to tell one from the other sometimes) have returned. Brain fog is getting worse as is joint pain ect. Alinia wont address any of these issues.

Doc is very receptive to input so if something else should be done as well they would probably be ok with it so long as it's safe.

My job often requires a high level of concentration and focus so brain fog is not acceptable. If any of you gurus could give some input here it would be appreciated.

My doc puts me on as much as I'm able to tolerate. But some docs do it slowly, and I think the end result does the same thing.

Did your doc give you A-L too? Maybe no lyme abx because of yeast and more. I was able to tolerate alinia on A-Bart, but not with abx (created a lot more yeast and side effects with the antibiotic).

Hitting babs helped to get rid of my brain fog. But stress can bring it back out again (did with me recently). Alinia is great in that it hits babs and other parasites.

You can always add some herbs for lyme or try salt/c.

No A-L Catgirl. It makes sense what you are saying. I started the Alinia but not so sure I like it much. I keep needing to try to catch my breath and have had a dull headache all day.

I don't know whether any of this is a herx or a side effect of the med. Time will tell I guess.

Thanks for the reply.

Mine is treating all coinfections and Lyme at the same time although I am not taking what you are.

I do had Buhner herbals to the mix.
