I have mentioned my wife in the past & that she is hard headed. I think some of you might know what I mean, based upon some of the responses that I have heard from here.

Here is her brief story:

2005-2010: She had periodic UTI's & pain in her lower abdomen.

2010: She had a bout of shortness of breath. She had to lay down on the couch and catch her breath.

2011: She had 2-3 weeks of painful headaches & migrains that went away. Her tiredness and stamina has declined over the years & is most apparent now. When she sleeps well, she has bursts of energy. She had a reaction to her PPD test & was bed ridden for a few hours.

June 2012: She had lower abdomen pains & she had felt nausea. GI docs found H. Pylori & gave her a round of meds. The ABX caused her to have a yeast infection & she was given anti yeast meds. It all resolved.

Sept 2012: She has had trouble going to sleep & staying sleeping the past few months & it is more apparent now. Trouble with sleep is something that I have battled with for years! She never had any trouble sleeping, but now even when she is exhausted from 14hr work days, she has trouble to fall asleep. Again this is exactly me!

She has developed a UTI after intercourse that has become painful to the touch down there. Her lower abodomen hurt & the pain went toward her back this time, maybe her kidneys are being affected now? She will get a scan tonight at the local hospital, since her primary has sent for one. They had found resistant E. Coli when cultured.

She has had parasites from South America as a young kid & has had tremors and twitches. I have felt her twitches myself & is it feels like the same ones that I get. She has low vitamin D. She also has had ringing in the ears for years she professes. She had the ringing in one ear last night.

Since she had parasites in the past, it would make sense that they weren't completely eradicated from the sound of her symptoms. Google parasite symptoms. Once infected with parasites, it is prudent to do maintenance cleansing on an ongoing basis.

If just one egg is left, the cycle will start all over again. The infection can be transmitted back and forth between a sexually active couple.

If she is open to this possibility, perhaps you can start her on an antiparasitic herb like parastroy or a pharma med like Ivermectin.

Lymed- your wife's symptoms are very similar to my story. I too have had the stomach pain and in the end H. Pylori. This is what I think sent my immune system over the edge. Or if you look at it the other way, the Lyme suppressed my immune system so mug the H Pylori took over. I had a bout of severe stomach pain so bad I thought I was passing a stone. This was about 4 months prior to to the H. Pylori. then the Lyme and Fl 1953 and Mycoplasma Pneu. I hope you can discuss with your wife the potential of her symptoms. I hope for the best for both of you!

I am beginning to make the connection between parasite & overall bacteria load via sexual transmission more clearly than ever.

Sex and exchange of body fluids cause a transfer of organisms. It is much more complex than just HIV or Syphilis or any STD.

I think we might have exchanged our loads over the years & now as a result it is taking a toll on both are systems.

Winni, thank you for your response. I was suspicious since I had gotten sick & each time I get what to me are clear cut indications of Lyme & CO'es. The problem is that I end up being the Lyme NUT & she is the CDC type Nurse that knows ABX are dangerous and should not be taken for lenghts of time.

I am going to keep this forum going as she gets new symptoms.

Yesterday, she felt her heart beat off. As if she had extra beats.

When I checked her blood, she has some of the same organisms that I have. Looks like Borrelia, but in smaller quantities than my blood.

Have you considered starting her on any of the parasite cleanses to see what kind of response she gets?

Glm, she may be having premature ventricular contractions. I was diagnosed with this in July 09. I was having massive panic attacks and had just had bronchitis. Has she had her heart checked. What did you mean about her blood? If she is a nurse I am sure she is very in tune with what is happening so I was just curious. I hope you can convince her to be tested. Btw, I am still available to chat anytime. Take care.
