The Faces of Lyme: Mason
“If anyone told you this would be easy…they’d by lying”
Go getter, high energy, on-the-go these are the words Mason uses to describe himself. After moving to San Diego, he noticed these characteristics fading away. He attributed it to starting a new job in a new city, but after 2-3 months of extreme fatigue, he knew something else had to be going on, so he went to the doctor.
18 doctor’s appointments later he still did not have an answer. He heard everything from chronic fatigue, arthritis, fibromyalgia, allergies, mold….
Eventually his symptoms landed him in the ER for three days. After being on IV antibiotics for 24 hours, he noticed his energy dramatically increased. Rightfully so, he attributed his feeling better to being on antibiotics. With the knowledge that antibiotics helped him feel better, he became his own advocate and sought out other doctors who would listen to his story.
In this video, we discuss one of the main symptoms of Bartonella, why we use Bicillin so often as a treatment.
