    Hi all,
    I have not posted here in sometime. Needed to make a new account recently. Was on abx for 6 months- stopped. On IVIG therapy for neurological issues. Restarted ABX when lab work FINALLY confimed I was positive for bart.
    I have been diagnoses clinically with Lyme and tested positive for Bart.
    Since re-starting ABX, Bioxin for about a month and recently added Rifamin. (Protocal for Bart) I
    noticed my fingers became very stiff and joints started to swell. I have significant finger joint inflamation at this point. I went to get blood work and my ESR is 111 and CPR 5.8.
    I also have slightly low neutophils 39.2 (40.7-75.6) and slightly high lyphocytes 51.6 (15.5-47.1).
    Could this be an infection or possible other issues creaping up? Most of my issues till now have been neurological. Very scared.


    It is interesting that your neutrophils are a tad bit low and your lymphs are a bit high. I am exactly like you but switched. My neutros are tad bit high and lymphs are a tad low. It has driven me crazy. Let me know if you figure it out. I just saw a chiropractor who did lots of bloodwork. I will find out about HLA’s, something about epithelial growth factor and a bunch of stuff. She says it will help her decide what my weak areas are with the HLA’s. You may want to consider this if you haven’t already. Also MTHFR.
