3 weeks into tx, swollen fingers.

the past few days my fingers are really swollen and the knuckle joints are very sore, especially in the morning. I do have fluid retention from time to time, but not with joint pain. i have been playing guitar hero a lot so maybe its just from that, but i called the dr's office anyway. i usually dont call with symptoms because i just figure everything is due to herxing but this is an odd new symptom.

Re: 3 weeks into tx, swollen fingers.

Hi roro. Many people do herx around three weeks, so it may be what is happening. It is always good to let your doctor know what is going on, so it is good you called.

Re: 3 weeks into tx, swollen fingers.

i just saw another post about bartonella and this symptom, and that was one of the co-infections the dr tested me for. i will get my results when i go.
