It's Lyme disease patients that herx...not fibromyalgia. We have many similarities with Lyme, and lupus, and MS, but we don't have the bacteria in the cells like some with Lyme do. That's caused by the bite of a tick.
Check out the Fibro 101 thread as I suggested in your other post. You will find info about fibromyalgia. Also in that thread there is a link called "What Else Could It Be". This is why we are thoroughly checked out before a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is given. They want to rule out Lyme, lupus, etc. You can have both Lyme and fibro but those of us that only have fibro do not have the bacteria in our cells that we are trying to kill.
If you have Lyme disease, we have a wonderful Lyme forum here on HealingWell. In the bar at the top of the page is our forum quick jump. Scan down until you see Lyme and then click on it and it will take you to the Lyme forum.
