Hey all new to the group was just wondering what symptoms you have had? Has anyone experienced shortness or breathe or difficulty breathing? Struggling to get a deep breathe or any other respiratory symptoms.

    Yes. The worst symptom ever. Oxygen tests all come back normal. This is a very typical symptom of Lyme co infection babesia or what some Lyme doctors call babesia like organism. Requires specific anti malarial type medication. There are also targeted herbs you could try. This will all initially worsen your symptoms but eventually get better.

      Hey jo anne what respiratory symptoms have you had? Due to the fact i live in Australia and lyme disease isnt taken seriously we only have a very basic test for lyme disease but im not ruling it out for myself as i have been feeling very run down for many months now with multiple symptoms that doctors cant get to the bottom of

      Asthma type symptoms. Shortness of breath feeling like my lungs aren't letting in enough air. I had to wriggle around into better positions just to breathe right. It's really weird and horrible. It's a very common symptom. Doctors will probably dismiss as anxiety when other tests come back normal. We are in no better position in the UK really, test is totally unreliable, doctors only know about first line symptoms, they give you a dose of antibiotics and cut you loose, that being said they do admit the disease is in this country at least. I hear Australia are still denying this!

      Why not treat with herbs to see if you experience a herx reaction whilst you find your feet with all this?

      Yeh Australia still deny it but have a basic blood test to look for antibodies due to overseas travels and what not.. im just at a loss as to what whats wrong with me haha

      Difficulty breathing and all that aswell as body and muscles aches and pains and headaches, spleen pain and what not, all tests normal apart from some iron tests and the fact ive had numerous viruses and infections.

      What do you mean by herb treatment

      A lot of people treat with herbs, may sound silly but they do have their place in treatment. So basically what usually happens is when you treat the infection, symptoms worsen initially. So if you treat and symptoms worsen this will help clarify that you are on the right track. This is a known reaction in Lyme disease. I would personally look for Lyme and babesia herbs. Whilst looking for a Lyme doctor of sorts
