I have been noticing a more frequent sensation going on in my feet lately and am not to sure exactly what it is. I know that foot pain is a hallmark symptom of bartonella but I'm not sure if this is the same type of pain?

People talk about nerve pain or burning sensations. For me, it's more like the feeling of walking on bare bones. When I get up after resting, my feet and ankles feel incredibly stiff, and as I step down it jut feels like I'm stepping with bone. I can't bare

to stand. I now shower sitting down bc it's starting to be too much. What could this be? Or even better, what will relieve this?!

Hi Stefi,

It sounds like Bartonella to me. The nerve pain and burning is typical Lyme, from what I know.

Bartonella for me was pain and tenderness so intense I couldn't walk. I still can't stand on my tiptoes because of bone/joint pain.

I gained relief from a) antibiotics, (Doxy)
b) turmeric, the herb from India that curry is made from. I put powder form, 1 teaspoon, and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil,

in a bullet with 1 cup of coffee, blend so it's frothy, and drink 'er down, once a day. I think it helped alot.
Thanks to advice from the experts here.
c) my own immune system.

(breaking up a paragraph for easier reading for many here)

I agree with jsnyde - Bartonella. Minocycline took it away the first time. Lately, I've had relief with Bartonella herbs.

Tulips, no. I take it apart. Doxy at 8AM, 6PM, turmeric about 10 or 1030AM

I've tried doxy but it never did anything for me :/. I will definitely try the turmeric but is that just something I can go to the supermarket for?

Yeah, I bought it at our food coop - so a healthfood store. If you have a Whole Foods, they have a brand called Tumeric Boost Sport which is turmeric with some sort of chai so makes it taste better in a frothy drink.

My LLMD told me about that. I don't have a Whole Foods nearby so mine is just straight turmeric powder.

I needed a very strong combo with Mino and Factive to help relieve similar sounding foot pain caused by Bartonella. I've also had to take combos with IV levaquin.

Bartonella is not easy to get rid of.

I'm currently taking Plaquenil and azithromyzin along with IV Rocephin. Does any of that hit bartonella as well as Lyme?

Also consider low thyroid as a cause.

I take curcumin for inflammation.

Yep... Google it.

My feet were so painful for two years that I was basically housebound. Many different issues all rolled into one .. so it wasn't only from hypothyroidism.... but here is some info.

PS .. I got a shower chair 4-5 yrs ago and I continue to use it. I got to rely on it and now I prefer it.

stefi, if you want to know which antibiotics treat bartonella, see this page of a lyme doctor's book:


http://www.lymebook.com/antibiotic-treatment-for-babesia-bartonella-ehrlichia-co-infections

You can also read pages 24 and 25 of Burrascano:
