I don't know where to begin, I got sick 6 years ago it took 4 mths for me to get a lyme diagnoses and the Dr gave me Biaxan & Plaquniel for 18 mths felt pretty good not a 100% but knew there was a piece of the puzzle missing, so I went to a lyme mtg that I found online. And listen to everyone and found out about coinfections

Fast forward went to another Lyme Dr and read and read about lyme and company the found out I had babs and Bart, treated babs with cortem think it did the job, been treating Bart for a few years off and on with Rifampin, Zith and Plaquenil and Diflucan for yeast cause the 1st LLMD did not inform me about probiotics, Well I thought I was doing pretty good so I took a break from all antibiotics and being honest went crazy with sweets, Had severe stress in my life for at least the last year.

Now getting to my questions I started having severe back pain and my calves are so swelled that if I bend down they touch the back of my knees it is unbelievable pain, I also have pain in my knees, burning in my thighs, pain in my buttucks.

So I go to my PCP and tell her listen this isn't how I felt with lyme before so she said she would do some blood work and a MRI of my back

This is the findings : Antinuclear Antibodies:
Homogeneous Pattern H 1:160

MRI Findings: Minor L5-S1 Disc Osteophyte complex is seen here with Mild bilateral L4-L5 and L5-S1 narrowing

C2-C3 C6-C7 Minor Disc desiccation
Impression: Minor degenerative changes of uncertain etiology, this could create neck pain

Went to see my PCP today to ask for assistance to get out of work on STD for awhile because I am having severe pain, feel exhausted unusual amounts of muscle pain, calves are so swelled that my ankles come up over my socks, and so she says I can't really help you cause what do I write pain, I felt like screaming, although I didn't I am exhausted I am in Pain, my emotions are out of wack. I need to focus on me, myself and I

Anybody out there who could relate is this yeast, hormones (no cycle for 8 mths) adrenal glands, bartonella

I was really bad when I stopped my antibiotics ate chocholate like every meal no probiotics, under severe stress losing health insurance, don't know if I will be able to continue working, very ill daughter needs open heart surgery, the list could go on forever.

Anybody have any similar experiences PLEASE

Oh my!

I am SO sorry your doc would not help you further.
That must be incredibly frustrating.

I can't offer advice re: your test results but I wanted to tell you I will pray for some relief from the pain you are having and also to send you a cyber hug.
[group hug]
