I agree, Anthony. I use to flair every New & Full moon. Mine was due to a protozoan infection. Once I treated for that, I haven't lunar cycled since.

My LLMD told me parasites usually lay their eggs on the New Moon & then they hatch on or around the Full Moon. That is why the Full Moon flair up is worse than the New Moon. At least mine was, anyways!!!

@ Raven

When you say protozoan infection do you mean babasia?

I'm assuming Babs, as I never tested positive. I know for a fact that I also had a filarial disease, Heartworm. (I helped out at a local, dog shelter before I got really sick)

Yes... humans can get Heartworm if they are immune compromised. Sadly, my son has been DXed by a CDC Dr. with Heartworm too.

Artemesia Annua treats both of these infections, so if I did have Babs, it must have gotten rid of that also. No lunar flairs for over 8 months, so far!!!

The full moon usually causes my symptoms to worsen.

The most recent full moon cycle was extremely disturbing. Not only did it cause problems, but I had encountered three straight days of enormous amounts of activity during the cycle.

This was the worst that I've felt in a while. I am feeling a little better today.

New moon for me--big time. I wonder what the difference is? Why some people r affected during new moon and others during full moon?!

I have been 90 - 100% for awhile, however the full moon brought a flare of symptoms just reality that it is still alive in me.

I had a flare for just 1 day, the day of the full moon.

So for now I keep plugging away and hope to be posting in "success stories" soon.

Oh and I never tell people the whole full moon thing, cuz you know the reaction we would get!

Hard enough telling people we have Lyme, and forget about Co's.

I noticed co-workers complaining of feeling awful that day as well.

My daughter who is a nurse says, "er's are always busy on a full moon". Also says they have a saying when it's crazy at the hospital, "must be a full moon tonight"!

Guessing there is some merit to it but still sounds freakishly strange to me Smile

I just pieced together that symptoms worsen for me on the new moon. This month's new moon was on the 13th and I notice I get a headache every month just before the new moon. This one happened on the 12th. After that I feel like I am digging myself out of a trench for the next week. My symptoms seem to be the weakest on the full moon. I am trying to figure out how to treat based on this cycle. I am assuming the worsening of symptoms coincides with chronic reactivation/ reproduction. Should we anticipate this and updose into the flare? This seems to be a common enough phenomon that there should be some studies done. There must be something we can glean from the correlation.
