100 tick bites. Would you ignore it?

Ive seen Dr Klemann in Germany which is supposed to be top 3 LLMDs in Europe and he said I had Lyme and co infections.
Well, maybe you should go for the treatment, then.

(I have zero aversions to ticks- I owned dogs ....You remove the tick. I have a phD in: Tick Removal. (counter clockwise, twist, I never lose the head). So then they are all over you.

A bit complex- our western fence lizard is an alternative host and the spirochete is killed in the ticks if they fedd on western fence lizards.

We have a bit lower rate of it here, as a result. (this lizard is also missing from Seattle Washington, so No, it won't like Norway).

But the story is complicated...

Fascinating! I will have a look at it.

Ha, same here. Removing ticks counter clockwise, twist, and never lose the head and burn them til they pop.

Its wild that its possible to have negative tests and still have an ongoing infection.

Valcyte. I'd tried other things, both alternative and pharmaceutical, but nothing helped until I used it. I started it, then hit support for my immunodeficiency, and then worked on my other infections.

You might look into 10 pass ozone. There are German made machines sold into the US for it, so I assume it's available somewhere in Germany, and I know it's available in Austria.

If you're near Berlin, you might see if you can go to Charite to have your immune function looked over.

@ChookityPop The whole Lyme thing is not full of quackery. Lyme is a very persistent illness and can destroy people's lives.

Given the scenario you presented, it seems likely that you may have been exposed to Lyme. If that is the case, finding a knowledgeable practitioner experienced in treating it would be an appropriate next step. Though there are a few here with a history of Lyme, you might find more experience and recommendations on a Lyme forum.

As for mycoplasma, I had it with chlamydia pneumoniae. Though I took both azithromycin and rifampin orally, they weren't enough, not were botanicals, UVBI, high dose vitamin C or HBOT. Eventually, I was put on 4 months of IV azithromycin, rifampin and doxycycline 3 days a week, which was successful in riffing me of them, but at a cost to microbiome health.

These are difficult infections. Getting knowledgeable expertise is essential.
Hi

have to keep myself short as I am very severe.

I have titres for cpn (igg+iga), if you find the time, I would be VERY grateful if you could please put anything you know about its relation to me/cfs, how you got treated for it and how you were before and after treatment (in severity) into one post? Also is there a relation of how you felt to the titres? Did they go down?

Thank you.
