akathisia and air hunger- herxheimer reaction to lyme and babesia treatment


this super flattering video is a herxheimer reaction, also called a healing crisis, from the frist day of a new cycle of iv antibiotic treatment for late-stage lyme disease and babesiosis. this was taken about two hours into the episode. my writhing around can be broken down into three primary parts: akathisia (inner restlessness), air hunger (not getting enough oxygen) and severe muscle cramping. i feel like i should also note that i was also having a mild allergic reaction to a sulfa based antibiotic, so this isn’t just footage of a severe herx. treating late stage lyme doesn’t have to be this brutal, but in cases where the infection has been raging for years, this is not an uncommon reaction. if you’re interested, i’ve been writing a blog about my lyme disease diagnosis and treatment- more about lyme and my journey with it at lymeinthecoconut.wordpress.com

Life cycle of Babesia microti


Babesia are malaria-like parasites transmitted by blood feeding ticks. Infection with Babesia microti causes humans to become anemic, experience spiking fever and chills, and exhaustion. In some cases, the infection can be fatal. This 3 minute video demonstrates the life cycle of Babesia microti, starting in the blood of white-footed mice. Follow the parasite as it is ingested by deer ticks, and finally is transmitted to humans through tick saliva. Special thanks to Rick Smith at The University of Rhode Island for narration; Rick’s brother was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease.
