Bump (someone asked when a borrelia infection begin to be more "hard-to-treat" in another thread, and maybe some answers can be found in this thread)!

From Norway:

Vil sjekke flåttbitte uten utslett

A google translated quote:
Those who go with infection (s) from ticks for a long time without treatment, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk for serious illness.

This quote from the first post in this thread, must be a "persisters infection":
2: Monthly flares, where recovery between flares, then reaches the same level between flares; patient experiencing only continue increasing symptoms with particular stress / immune suppression, flare activity may continue for years - fragile - some would later experience relapse => need for follow up / “safety net”= be able to contact a doctor when needed, so incipient relapse can be stopped early.

It is good to read that some pt do get better, even if it takes years of hard work and complications with treatment.

It gives me hope I started to loose.

Thanks for bumping this thread.
