Hello, i am a 49 year old female. I was diagnosed at 38 with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and lyme disease. Recently I was diagnosed with bartonella bacteria, also known as cat scratch fever. My infectious disease doctor has put me on anti-biotics
to rid me of cat scratch which I contracted from a tick bite in 1992.
Two weeks ago, I went for my yearly eye exam and was told that I have cataracts
, a mole on my eyeball and have thinning of the eye ball which has now put me into the position of having my retinas detach.
As you can see, life has been a bit rough the last 10 - 12 years and the thought of my vision going funny is making me very uneasy. Are you able to tell me what I should be doing in my situation? Can I make my eye situation improve through supplementation, operations, etc., does cat scratch have anything to do with this? Will it go away when the infection goes away? Do medications have anything to do with these issues? My parents were in their late seventies and early eighties when they got cataracts, why do I have them (actually felt my eyes becoming cloudy about 3 years ago) at my age?
Look forward to hearing from you,
