My IVs: 4 months on rocephin, 2.5 months on Zithromax, finishing up 30 days of Flagyl.
 
A couple of oral meds for bartonella and bebasia.
 
In the past week or so, I have been feeling so many of the stabbing pains in my fingers and toes.  In the past few days, I've noticed that now and then, when I speak, complete garbage comes out, where I might have to try several times before I get the words.  It's sporadic.  My mind feels slower- I just don't know how to describe.
 
Why is this happening now?  Is this a herx and could a herx take this long to come on after this long of a period of antibiotics?
 
I worry because my doctor said we should take me off the IV soon.  Am I ready?  How will I know if I'm ready?
 
Thanks.

Hi mokeyho,

Detox, Detox and MORE Detox! This happens to me too when I have too many toxins in my brain. Try a detox bath, it will make you feel better. If you had a portable infrared sauna, that would be better.

Are you feeling any better? Usually, LLMD's treat two months past your symptoms going away.

Well, these stabbing pains I had before starting treatment, but they went away and now they've returned. I have definitely seen improvement- no more swollen joints, no longer painful to climb stairs, but these stabbing pains are annoying. So, I guess I should mention this to my doctor. Maybe I need another month of Flagyl. Do you know if one month would be enough or would longer be more appropriate. Now that I think about it, the stabbing pains have started a couple of weeks after adding Flagyl.

What do you recommend as a detox bath? How long? My tub it tiny, so I can't completely submerge- does that matter? My knees and chest stick out of water :) Should I submerge my head? Thanks CajunGrl :)

In order to function before I got better. I could not have made it out of my bed without cymbalta.
It is not a cure, but while you are trying to find your, it helps to walk and be without pain.
Our family all got lyme in 2004. It has been a long battle. But all is well now with my children. Feb 8 TH of 2009 is when I left Envita. And I am celebrating a year of perfect health.

When I went on oral Flagyl apart from the awful herx, a lot of different symptoms including speech got a little worse. It seemed that the cyst-breaking power of Flagyl made for a lot of mess in my brain and spinal cord.

Do let your doc know what's going on next visit so that you get long enough treatment.

mokeyho,

All you need is Epsom salt, hydrogen peroxide and a dry brush. You can get everything at Walmart. You do not need to submerge your head. You can get a cup and pour the liquid over the parts that are out of the water.
