To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

I think anything is possible when it comes to Lyme. Just be careful and if it gets much worse consider that it might be an allergic reaction. Hopefully, it's a herx and you're on your way to getting better. Hope you feel better.

I herxed the first day on my med combo. I'm not sure which one did it though I think some of us are just more sensitive to meds than others are.

I agree with Scorpio. Keep a close eye on it and if it gets worse, call your doctor. If you can't reach your doctor, call the pharmacy. They know just as much as a doctor about medicine.

I hope it subsides soon!

When I picked up my doxy at the pharmacy I took it while shopping and began to feel it on the way home. I had a headache and body pain all over. That was the beginning of treatment and the biggest most productive herx ever - lasted for weeks.

The only time during all my years of lyme and treatment protocols that I herxed was when I begged my family doctor for a prescription for Doxy and he gave me enough for 1 week.  
 
I herxed for 2 or 3 days and I was taking 100 mg twice a day.  I was sweating, felt really hot, then got chills, felt really strange and when it was all over I felt great.   But that 1 week prescription was not enough and because I didn't have a positive blood test at that time he refused to prescribe more Doxy for me.    When I finally did see a LLMD I was given Doxy but never herxed but it.
 
From what I have learned all these years, a hot body is good compared to a cold body because lyme spirochetes can not survive in a hot body but love a cold body. 
 
And RD, yes, one must avoid the sun when taking Doxy as well as eating some food with it.  I didn't know that at the time and my head was in the toilet bowl too many times after taking Doxy on an empty stomach, not good!! 
 
Oh, before I forget (I am getting older), never lay down right away after taking Doxy as it can do damage to one's esophagus (ulcers  I believe).
 
Hope you feel better Veromia,

Thank you Deejavu and RD,
I was advised by my LLMD that I need to get eagle eye sunglasses fittons which keep out the sun on the sides of my eyes as well as the fronts, and to buy rocky mountain sunscreen. I did so thank u for the precautionary info.

Oh, definitely.  I take 400 mg a day and take a break on weekends.  But from day one, herx city - especially the neuro herxing.  Now I have this lovely little side effect from taking both the doxy and the rocephin where I'm losing my sensation to urinate.  I drink plenty of fluids and realized the other day that I had gotten up to pee at 5:30 a.m. and it was 6:00 p.m. before I realized I'd not gone all day.  I had to make myself go.  So I have to be sure I make a trip to the restroom every four hours so I don't end up with a UTI.
