Understanding different patterns of symptoms caused by microbes is particularly difficult. Laboratory tests are unreliable, and the diagnosis is further complicated by the fact that the immune system in everyone reacts differently to particular infections.
The basis for the treatment of Lyme disease is to answer the question, which co-infection dominates in my case? Doctors relying on designated patterns undertake successive treatment. It seems to be a priority to remove inflammation from the body to create appropriate conditions for further therapy of chronic diseases.
Babesia affects most of all the human brain and the autonomic nervous system. When the disease is dominating, thesick person can’t concentrate and think. He loseshiscognitivefunctions. Depression and anxiety are very common. Fear dominates and emotional outbursts start to afflict the patient. By attacking the autonomic nervous system, Babesia affects the heartbeat, breathing, etc. This means, that communication between the brain and the body is disturbed. All physical symptoms that Babesia causes are therefore associated with dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. Tachycardia, fast heartbeat at rest and / or irregular heartbeat and strong heartbeat at night do not lie on the side of the dysfunction of the heart itself. Babesia is responsible for the dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.
There is often dyspnoea in babesiosis, which is also reflected in problems with the autonomic nervous system. Patients feel “hunger for air”. The dying signal from the command center in the brain does not dilate the bronchi or properly open the diaphragm. This symptom is the most frightening and serious. The patient feels as if he is suffocating or if someone has crushed his diaphragm. Doctors erroneously diagnose this as a “panic attack”. It is also often (and incorrectly) diagnosed as “asthma” or “shortness of breath” or other lung disorders.
Babesia is a close relative of malaria and is partially protozoan and in part a bacterium. As in the case of malaria, people may experience chills, sweating and reflexes of rage. Babesia regulates the optimal body temperature, which also involves a dysfunctional autonomic nervous system. You may have a feeling of being freezing or overheating. It is difficult to warm up and it is even harder to cool. The main cause is the mitochondrial dysfunction, which gives the feelingof strangely uncomfortable skin.
Insomnia is also very common because the protozoan affects the brain’s sleep center. There are severe sleep disorders, trouble falling asleep, sleep paralysis and frequent waking up. Other common symptoms caused by Babesa include blurred vision, problems with intestinal motility and bladder problems. There are episodes of urinary incontinence. Due to autonomic deregulation of the nervous system, there are problems on the intestinal side. Usually constipation occurs, but sporadic diarrhea is not excluded. The dominant Babesia infection can also affect certain areas of the wrists, hands, ankles and feet. These areas can be painful, cramped or warm up to extreme temperatures.
Babesia can cause occipital and / or frontal headaches,(especially behind the eyes) or a feeling of pressure without pain (head in a vise). Feelings that can be sensed directly in the head are sometimes difficult to describe by the patient. The head literally smoulders or burns. There are problems with maintaining balance, the patient is staggering, he has the feeling that he is falling. The patient hears sounds, squeaks and noise. Babesia, as a rule, does not cause acute pain in the body, so if someone has pain, it usually lies on the side of another ailment. Nevertheless, with a defective detox system that results in the accumulation of toxins, a feeling of pain may arise.
Babesia causes a series of symptoms that change over time. The symptoms do not happen appear all at once. Symptoms can change literally every few minutes, making the patient feel crazy. Déjà vu, is the strangest symptom of Babesia infection. In fact, it is really aidentification point. Déjà vu is the sensation or impression that you have experienced an event before. There are also sudden, random, completely non-contextual visions of our life from the past.
