I have a few quick questions for my internet friends;

1. How long did you treat bart for?

2. Have you ever relapsed?

3. What meds did you find most effective?

4. Are there IV meds that work well against this TBD?

Thanks everyone! [kiss]

I treated bart for 12 weeks with a rotation of Rifampin M-Fri, zith on sat, sun, and doxy everyday. I finished 2 months ago-I hope I don't relapse!

Hey Babe,

Everyone responds differently so it's hard to pin down a specific bart treatment. Can take several months to treat in some cases, can repeatedly relapse.

Levaquin and rifampin seem to have a good effect against bart as does other meds.

I have done 4 months of Levaquin, with a break here and there and feel most of my Bart symptoms are gone.

I never thought I had Bart until I was traveling in India on a pleasure trip with my daughter and mother and got gastroenteritis. They treated me with IV Cipro and my remaining "Lyme" symptoms vanished 100%!!! When I got back to the states I asked my Lyme doc about it and he put me on Cipro & Zithro together and I had less flare each month premenstrually until finally I went symptom free!!! 2 months symptom free and then I got pregnant and have been breastfeeding ever sicne my daughetrs birth but once I am no longer breastfeeding i can't wait to go on cipro again and see if I go symptom free again*)!*)!! I am a feral cat rescuer and have worked volunteer with feral and orphan cats since the age of 12 when I began to volunteer at cat rescue places in Los Anegles- so I have had tons of exposure- and with 6 cats now- still have- !!! My doc was going to take me off all abx at 3 months no symptoms (pre Doc J recds!!) and I was sooooo close!!! When I told my doc I was pregnant his face fell, he looked so disappointed for me, but I am glad, it has all turned out lovely- and he was glad for me, too- but I had mixed feelings too at first- we had planned to have a baby but not so soon*)!*)! I only have one remaining symptom, a left knee flare once a month before my period, but I have to stay on abx or I decline rapidly and dramatically!!! I am very grateful for my recovery.

Still, I can't wait to try cipro again!!!! It was honestly the healthiest I have felt in my whole life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH- and I was running 8 flights of stairs 3 times a week with no tendon problems but I did get tendon achiness and would be gentle with myself then!!!
Best wishes,
Sarah
