Six weeks ago my LLMD started me on high dose antibiotics. Amoxicillin 3000MG/Day and Zithromax 250MG/Day.
The first four weeks went well with no major stomach or physical issues. In the beginning of week five I started experiencing more intense numbness, involuntary muscle contractions, muscle fatigue and aches and pains. I'm having difficulty walking now and am concerned about this progressing any further.
I have attributed this to some sort of herx response and notified the doctor after it continued for ten days. The doctor advised to keep going with the abx and we would evaluate at my next appointment. Don't know if this is normal or if I should be concerned that my body is having an adverse reaction to the abx.
Anybody else experience this?
Peace and Healing
