how significant is altitude in mito function

    I'm moving from Connecticut to the desert to do a mold avoidance stint before starting antibiotics for bartonella encephalopathy. I also have M.E.
    As soon as I hit 3200 in the mountains feet I started having exponentially more mental problems that only increased as the altitude did. By 4500 i couldn't open doorknobs and by 6800 i couldn't speak and had partial paralysis. By the time I got below 3200 i started to clear up a bit but was still hospitalized with "high altitude cerebral edema"
    My guess is that since i have so much existing brain inflammation, the slightest bit of pressure decrease allowed it to swell even further all the way to the point of HACE at merely 4500 feet.
    My question is, since I felt a significant improvement when I crossed 3200 feet does that mean I'm out of the woods anywhere under 3200? Or is it just sensible that the lower the elevation the better. I'm obviously trying to reduce inflammation here so is the lower the elevation the better for your mitochindria?

    Well that about answers it, thank u. I haven't been keeping up much with the blogs, the past couple months were really labored getting myself out here.

    Seems like you have had some tough times:( Just hope you can manage to pull off a low altitude healing spot for yourself:)

    Thank you, Jude

    Yes, the altitude problems were a total suprise so I have to rewrite a plan but I will figure this out and get this underway anyway possible
