Hi Trina, Yes Bartonella can cause swollen lymph glands....But
So can an active infection of lyme, ehrlichia and babesia. Your body is trying to fight it off.
You need to go to a LLMD and be tested for ALL Tick borne infections. I had swollen glands for years. 3 years of antibiotics with gland slowly improving. Now I am doing homeopathics, my glands are finally down.
I originally crashed with both kinds of Ehrlichiosis they can test for, I almost died from that disease. Don't play around with it. Seek an LLMD!
I had all of the tick borne diseases and treated all. I still have lyme, bartonella and babesia. It's een a constant fight. Lymph gland go up and down, even when I get a cold along with this stuff. Take care and good luck.

Hello, I started 3 weeks of doxy for an EM around may 18 th or so.Was told there was no need to do blood test as as EM was all that was needed to diagnose lyme.
So...I went to the library figured I must have something else going on because I still feel sick and have one week of abx left.
My daughters doc said I must be off the abx for 6 weeks to test for coinfections.I do not have a sinus problem going on .t The lymp nodes starting hurting, chills, aching ect..two days before I found the little nasty tic that left the EM.
JimBOB What is the herb or tincure you are talking about and can I get it at any health food store ? How much do I use?
If my blood test come back postive for any infections I will go to see a LLMD.We are on a really tight income.I am hoping our insurance will pay for the nearest one in Kansas city .
I guess I am really hoping my daughters doctor has some expierece in dealing with lyme cases.And was wondering and if any of you were fighting active infections while lymphs were hurting.Am afraid the Doxy is not working
