    For those of you whose you who caught Babesia early and are feeling *roughly* back to normal, how long post treatment did it take for you to reach this milestone? I am heading towards four months past treatment and still dealing with a low level of fatigue every day, slight balance issues, etc. Progressing yes, but seems at a snails pace. Not looking for treatment advice, know I am on the mend (had tons of lab work in the the last month all negative), but looking that the slow pattern of recovery is the "norm"

    Hi franken,

    I'm sorry to hear you have been dealing with Babesia. It sure is a nasty infection.
    That's good that you caught it early.

    The people I know who have treated for Babesia all have other co-infections too, so I don't think they could pinpoint a certain time. They treated more based on remaining symptoms.

    Many of them also had infections that were not recognized and caught early, which seems to be the norm around here.

    Hopefully someone else will chime in with their experience.

    All the best to you. Hope you are completely well very soon.
