Does anyone here have Babesia and severe heart symptoms?

I wasn't sure if Babs causes heart problems, or is that just Bart?

My two biggest symptoms are air hunger and horrible heart symptoms.

Thanks for your time.

I have heard that heart problems are often associated with babs. I think of babesia rather than bartonella for this symptom, but just my non-medical opinion based on what I have read.

I have Lyme, Babs, and Bart. I had a lot of palpitations and was worked up by a cardiologist then put on atenolol. I have problems with shortness of breath. I stay confused on what symptoms go to which disease. A lot of them cross-over. I never had night sweats. I really never did sweat much anyway until I started treating all this stuff now my face will perspire.

My worst remaining symptoms are lung/breathing problems and heart symptoms.

We "think" it's babs but still trying to figure it out. Oh yeah, and my hormones are still jacked and I don't sleep well.

Thanks for the replies =]

I have severe heart symptoms.

They aren't as severe as they were, but are still quite bad. Palpitations up to 180bpm, and even faster a few times. Does anyone have a heart beat that is very strong? Feels like a strong beat all the time.

My Dr kept asking if I had air hunger, but I didn't know. Until I started on Mepron. Within a week all of a sudden I could *really* breathe!

I have noticed the last few days my heart seems to be beating stronger than usual. I was thinking maybe it's the relatively new to me flagyl?

I had to go to ER for heart problems. After being on Mepron for 2 months my shortness of breath and palpitations have got alot better. For me, the heart symptoms were babs.

I have episodes where my heart pounds. My rate doesn't change it's the quality that does. I feel it pound in my chest. It will always do that with a herx too. I have gotten no explanations for it. Doesn't happen as often now, use to get every afternoon.
