I'm super nervous/anxious/scared to be starting antibiotics again and want to be prepared for whats coming.
I've been sick for 5 years, got diagnosed with Lyme & Co 12/31/14. I was on Ceftin, Clarithromycin and Tinidazole for 3 months. I felt awful the entire time. My herx was constant and almost unbearable. I would have pushed through but my wedding was coming up and I didn't want to feel or look sick for the wedding and honeymoon.
Since stopping my antibiotics I've been on chinese herbs and of course have an intense detox regimen and supportive supplements. Despite all of that my bad days have started to outnumber my good and overall I feel awful again. So, I will be restarting oral antibiotics...Minocycline, Plaquenil and pulsing with Tinidazole once a month.
So, I want to be prepared for the herx this time and am just wondering if it is going to be just as bad as the first round of antibiotics. I had to take a medical leave last year, and want to be prepared for that and give my manager a heads up if need be.
