I've been diagnosed with BABESIOSIS and have been on

Customer Question

I've been diagnosed with BABESIOSIS and have been on Doxycycline for a little over a week. I remain exhausted, want to sleep a lot. I'm still not tolerating activity well. With just a small amount of activity ie: pulling a few weeds, walking up and down the stairs a couple times in a row, my heart starts pounding, I have air hunger, feel like I'm going to drop so I rush to the couch and wait to recover. I bruise very easily and Neal very slowly. I have macular degeneration and recently diagnosed with wet on the left eye and have had two injections for treatment in that eye. I found out about my BABESIOSIS after the second injection. I am also immuno comprimised
