Hi, my neckpain and stiffness has increased dramatically lately. For those of you who have struggled with Babesia, do you find that this coinfection tends to cause more of the neck problems? I've been off Malarone for a little over a month (my babesia med) and am beginning to wonder if the babesia is coming back.
I had Lyme and Babesia at the same time and was very ill. I was treated for the Babesia first, with atovaquone and azithromycin for several (~4?) months. I don't recall neck pain specifically, but everyone is different in how symptoms show.
When do you see your doc again? If it's going to be a while, I could call and ask to see him/her sooner just to be on the safe side.
