As for your 41 yr. Old woman. If she does not remember a Tick bite or rash, perhaps as it was stated in your article that she had 4 surgeries through the years before taking sick with her dreadful ailments. It is very possible as I am reading stories of this now. That the blood supply if she had any transfusions of blood or contaminated blood products through the years could have made her very sick. Mainstream medicine is not up on tick born diseases and insists that there is not enough problems to be concerned with. But it is just the opposite and truly this lady needs to be talking with somebody who will look at her for Babesiosis.
I researched My wife’s issues for a number of years and found that a number of her issues pointed to paniculitis and so I found an article out of Philadelphia university and began to try to understand it. I found that one of the possible causes of paniculitis is Babesia. As the article states, the parasite as babesia is. A malaria like relative attacks the pancreas triggering a type 2 diabetes problem as it did with my wife. Then it works on the liver and kidneys and that disables the ability the filter out the toxins in the body, there for creating the subcutaneous nodules in the fatty tissue layer under the skin. My wife also has been tested positive for lyme and bartonella and candida with H. pylori as a complication for her medicine intake.
