    "The infection caused numb limbs, restricted blood flow, fibromyalgia, headaches, brain fog, stomach pain, open sores, swelling, "toxic” blood and debilitating fatigue, which plagued my 2015 season."

    "The interesting thing in this case was the infection: it has a neurological component and I have been tested and found to have a lot of neurotoxins."

    "At times before I was on antibiotics, I felt overly emotional or down, which is not generally in my nature. Luckily the antibiotics helped with this and I feel like I’m able to take things as they are, day by day and one step at a time."

    ´Multiple bacterial infections and a parasite´ either sounds like incredibly bad luck, or a euphemism for Lyme and its co-infections.

    Or it could be she picked up parasites and bacterial infections from the swimming part of triathalons. Lots of chance for infection there too.
