Hello everyone,

I've been treating lyme, bart and babesia for the past six months.

I am on minocycline, rifampin, zithro and malarone in high dosages.
In the beginning I felt horrible from herxing, but over the summer I have felt a slow but steady increase health wise, until now.

For the past two weeks I have felt sluggish, tired and depressed.
What do you think? Could it be from the babesia treatment?

(PS. this forum is a gem!)

Have you been having your liver checked? You could just be getting an overload of toxins. Maybe it could be time for you to switch up your treatment? I don't know.

Also if you are having a stomach trouble too, you might be having gut disbiosis or a yeast infection.

ALOT of Lyme patients suffer a relapse in Fall.

Here is a post from last year ;

As you can see, it can be caused by many things.
I still don't have my answer. Hope you can figure it out.

Talk to your doctor.

Maybe it's liver as mentioned above. Maybe the meds aren't the right ones for you at this point.

Thanks for the answers everyone!

I've had my liver tested continually over the treatment period. At first my liver took a beating, but the latest test (in mid-June) came back with a better result than the first test.

I feel a bit like I am breathing through a coffee filter, is that similtar to what us lymies call 'air-hunger'?
