Babesia – from another blogger – with references

From the link listed below:

New research being done by Dr. James L. Schaller of Naples, Florida has brought about a break-through in our understanding of Babesia which is now considered the most common co-infection of Lyme disease, and not rare at all. He has found that not only can the disease go undetected for years, with no symptoms at all (like Lyme), there are many species of Babesia for which there are no tests.

Babesia symptoms, which may go back ten years or more, include one or more of the following; listlessness, slow thinking, high fevers or unexplained fevers, reduced appetite, chills, sweats, headaches and/or migraines, fatigue, muscle and/or joint pain, depression, anxiety, panic, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, cough, dark urine, enlarged spleen and/or liver, jaundice, enlarged lymph nodes, memory loss, psychiatric illness, struggle organizing, urgency to sleep in day, waves of generalized itching, dizziness, chest wall pain, sensitivity to light, and abdominal pain.

If you have some of these symptoms, you will immediately run into a problem getting a diagnosis. Dr. Schaller insists that there are no labs trained to catch the various forms of Babesia.

In his book, “The Diagnosis and Treatment of Babesia” Dr Schaller describes the various tests available for confirming Babesia, and insists that lab technicians are not trained to examine the red blood cells but focus on the white blood cells.
