I can only speak for myself....I herx 24-48 hours after starting or changing antibiotics. Although, I did not herx when I was on low doses of doxy (200 mg/day) prescribed by my GP. What antibiotics are you taking? What dose?
I was prescribed 300 of doxy 7 days a wk, Zithro 5 days a wk and Flagyl 2 days a wk. My dx was based off clinical findings and 1 pos (31) band, 2 IND bands (34, 41) on the IGM
I am starting the doxy this week and will add the zithro Monday, then the following wkend will add the flagyl. I dont want to bombard my system all at once
I was having awful pains all over my body last night and wondered if it was a herx. Not sure though because the day before I had bad pains in my hands, but last night it was all over, toothache type pains, and bad electrical pains...Not sure if it just me getting worse and a bad night or part of a herx. I feel okay this morning so far, well okay as in sick as I usually do but not worse
How long did it take for you to start feeling btr?
I have no clue if its a herx or just me getting worse..I feel like I was getting worse before the meds so I have no clue. The evening seem worse for me. It is odd as today during the afternoon I felt actually pretty good-oddly my muscle twitches have calm down the past two days. However I went to the gym and feel awful now, just tired, weak like I am on the verge of a flu. Can being on meds make you feel bad and good for a few hrs?
I doubt it would have settled my twitches down so quickly, maybe the mag is FINALLY helping.
