Does anyone know if babesia causes foot pain? Top as well as soles - my feet are so painful I can only wear flip-flops, I can't even get them into closed shoes if I tried or walk. I've noticed during 'flares' the foot pain gets worse to the point I have to back off my meds but that takes the edge off, doesn't make it go away.

I know bartonella is connected to foot pain but I read somewhere that babesia is too?

Hi
I don't know if babs is associated with foot pain. About six weeks into babs treatment is when my bart symptoms really came out. That is just my experience but thought I'd share.

Do you know if you have bart? Not saying you do but that is what happened to me.

Hope it eases up for you-good luck

Thx for your replies. Yes, could be bart (suspected but not confirmed by labs-I was on the 'cusp')... it's awfully painful, burning + joint pain- the eye-watering kind. My doc wants to wait to treat bart..are you seeing a reduction of this symptom if you are treating bart?

Randibear, how do you function with so much pain?? Do share your secrets!! [Smile]

My LLMD told me that pain on tops of the feet was Bab, so I though so until I started energetic tests. Now I know that this is heamomycoplasma. And since this pathogen is located in red blood cells, treating Babesia located at the same place increases the symptoms.

You can crash your feet by wearing flip flops. You can't wear sneakers?

You don't need plantar fasciitis on top of the bart/babs.

I have both Babs and Bart and LLMD says foot pain is from Bart.

Just sharing my experience, I am not a doctor.

Could be that as you beat down and suppress babs, it allows the bartonella to come forward.

--------------------
Lyme positive PCR blood, and
positive Bartonella henselae Igenex, 2011.
low positive Fry biofilm test, 2012.
Update 7/16- After extensive treatments,

Dr C says foot pain can be babs if its all day, morning pain is usually bart...hard to say it's definitely one or the other. I get a foot throbbing when treating babs
