Nothing is ever easy

A couple of updates on my last post.

1) It seems there is some disagreement about the reliability of the Fry Lab blood smear for bartonella. I'll need to look into this more.

2) The minocycline is causing me to wobble and slide around like a drunken ferret. Turns out that women are much more likely to experience vestibular disturbances while taking minocycline. In one study, 70% of female volunteers reported vestibular disturbances, compared to 9% of women taking the placebo. Yikes!

Tomorrow I'll call my LLMD and see what I should do. I imagine I'll be switched to doxycycline.
