Hello,
 
I am in my 4th week of IV Rocefrin (sp?).  I have been on doxy, as well as bicillin injections and biaxin prior to to the IV.  I have not had any noticable clearing, just an overall increase of symptoms.  I am so  afraid because I feel like I am getting weaker.  I have constant tingling, buzzing, vibrating in my head, mouth throat area as well as down my legs.  I have constant muscle twitching.  I feel like I have worms in me.  I have more frequent headaches and neck stiffness.  When I move my neck from side to side I hear a weird swishing sound.  My biggest concern is that my left hand and wrist is getting so weak that I feel like I won't be able to use it soon. 
 
Can anyone tell me if this is what I should expect while on these heavy dose antibiotics?  I guess I felt like since I am being treated that I would start to at some point feel less of my symptoms and not considerable worse and more weak. I have overwhelming anxiety as well.
 
Thanks for any input.

Thanks, I do see my lyme doctor regularly and he doesn't seem alarmed by the increase. Of course, he also hopes for the clearing.

It is helpful to know that some people herx the entire time. It is a bummer and I just hope I get through the treatment.

Kelly-

When I was on Iv rocephin I had continued worsening of symptoms. Turns out it wasn't the lyme, it was the bart getting worse because rocephin doesn't touch bart. So it may be a good idea to touch base with your doc. The worms sound like what I had before I was put on Iv doxy. Doxy does slow bart. I would encourage you to talk to your doc and be sure to mention all symptoms.
