So I have been treating a Bartonella infection...at least that is what the doctor believes I have. I had been breaking out in red streaking rashes on my back and front chest area which would then scab over and leave scars. I showed pictures and the actual rash to my doctor and last October put me on Bactrim/Zithromax combo. I was on that for 3 months with no resolve on any symptoms at all and the rash was even worse. He then switched me to Rifampin/Levaquin and the rashes have totally disappeared since March but I still have the symptoms...Not even a one percent reduction. I still suffer from chronic tiredness....nerve pain...chronic mental overstimulation which can happen very easily and leads to debilitating fatigue where I end up in bed laying quietly for the entire day...poor sleep... I just feel that if these were truly caused by Bartonella I would have noticed something....I am done.
