Similar experience here. Had some blazing Herxes, but no noticeable decrease in symptoms. Could very well have helped though if I'd been able to stay on it long enough, but the die off was causing some unbearable kidney pain. I woke up one night literally feeling as if someone had kicked me in the right kidney. I jumped out of bed in a panic and realized that my right hip also hurt so bad I had to limp. After drinking about 5 glasses of water the pain abated enough to go to sleep again.
