Please help. We are on our 2nd round with Pandas and now Lyme co-infections with my DS(23). Twelve years ago he responded beautifully to abx. This time he has not responded to abx or to one round of IVIG (no response at 8 weeks). He has treated yeast successfully, mycoplasma and H pylori successfully, no active strep or viruses, although ASOs still high 400s and Dnase B at 300. Babesia duncani at 40, and possibly some bartonella - although no symptoms for any lyme or co-infections. Physically he is the picture of health. His symptoms as an adult are invisible but still debilitating - ex
DS8 is 19 months in since the sudden onset. We've had multiple abx treatments, tonsils removed, IVIG, high dose pulse steroids, 10 weeks of partial hospitalization for ERP therapy, another round of diagnostic testing. Positive for D1 antibodies on Cunningham panel, positive for Babesia duncani, and lyme. Some indication of bartonella. Treatment for lyme & co-infections. Another HD IVIG...more Babesia/Lyme/Bart treatment. Added LDN...switching out abx for Lyme&Co. Overall better than last year but aggression and liability issues still. Still getting one or two red hot ears without expl
Does anyone here know whether plasmapheresis gets rid of Lyme spirochetes? Thanks. The reason I ask is because I suspect I may have nanobacteria, due to symptoms which mimick Lyme, so I thought if plaspapheresis could zap spirochetes, then it can zap anything.. In 2005 a mammogram indicated grossly dense breast microcalcifications which were non-cancerous. Ever since puberty, in fact, I was unable to lie on my breasts, so I suspect long-term nerve damage was committed by my internal nanobacteria.
