Am awaiting IV approval.  My eye started getting blurry first week of February which coincides with when I started diet and exercise routine.  Nothing major, 15-20 minutes on treadmill.  I was feeling great which is why I started exercising again and had cut out sugar and eating healthy again.  I am wondering if the start of zpack in January and the exercise reactivated the lyme or cyst form.  Any opinions?  Should us lymies really not exercise to the point of sweating?

Yes, exercise can lead to herxing... I just realized, every time I went back to school in the Fall, I'd have a 4-6 week bout of increased leg pains (my first Lyme symptom) before it settled down again...must have been herxing due to the increased walking in college vs. being at home for the Summertime...

Stupid questions but do you think herxing good? Does it mean bacteria being beat up and toxins being released? or just your body struggling more to beat it?

Could be either one, or a mix of both, depending on the strength of your immune system (and probably other factors I'm not thinking of right now).

Herxing means die-off of bacteria (good), but it also means clogged/overloaded detox pathways (not so good).

I've read here and on other chronic illness forums that exercising to tolerance is better than trying to force onesself to stick to a set plan no matter what. So maybe throw in some detox baths, etc. and see what happens?

Good luck,
