I had a horrible migrane last night. Every nerve in my head was pounding. I have chronic lymes and have been slowly taking herbal drops. Does this sound like a herx relation ? My lymes is mainly in my head and neck. And what is good to take for the unbearable pain?

Chanymom, welcome to the forum. I can completely empathize with you on the headaches, I wake up with one almost every morning. For a while they'd continue all day.

They are lessening a little, but I've just ordered some Kudzu, that was recommended here, to help out with that.

If you haven't already, please check out our intro, "New to Lyme?.....start here". Pay particular attention to the section on detoxing, which helps rid the body of toxins from die off, that may be overwhelming our elimination process.

What herbs are you taking? Did you start low dose, and what dosage are you at now?

It could be a herx reaction, and a good way to find out is to cut back your dosage and see if the migraine symptoms stop.

Welcome, and sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Most of my pain right now is in the back of my head with severe light and sound sensitivity; it's felt like a three week long migraine. I have been taking kudzu root and pinella and I think it's starting to help (it definitely wasn't an immediate relief unfortunately). Hope you find some relief soon!

Yes kudzu should help. I need to break that one back out again, since I'm dealing with headaches and pressure again.

Thank you everyone for your reply. I am on Pekana detox and MC-BB-1 drops for the lymes. These were prescribed by my lymes Dr. It seems my problem is on the left side of my neck and head the nerves there are always pulsating. I will try the suggestions you have given. This illness is so strange seems it will never go away!

Also I think an infected root canal which was pulled (not by a holistic dentist) made symptoms so much worse.

Posted By : PeteZa - 12/8/2016 10:40 AM
I think the root canal did not help.

How many drops of the BB-1 are you taking?

And on the Pekana are you doing all three of the bottles for detoxing?

My head pain from lyme disease was inflammation. Kudzu is an excellent one to try. Also Japanese Knotweed crosses the blood brain barrier and is worth a try also.

Pounding headaches are often caffeine withdrawal or methyltransferase related. BHMT mutations are bad for these type of headaches.

Caffeine and/or excedrin migraine helped immensely for me.
toxic effects from 2 doses of Levaquin in 2008.....Xanax for 4 monrhs in 2008 (horrific withdrawal effects)......CDC positive for Lyme's in 2009 (prescribed 200 mg daily of doxycycline for 2 months........extreme fatigue, anxiety, decreased cognition, etc. and was becoming worse in 2012......tested for Lyme's through Igenix and was CDC positive.....treatment started 9/2012

I was taking 6 drops twice a day of BB-1 drops trying to work up I take all three Pekana drops. I can't have caffeine because of mitro valve prolapse it's like the Lyme attacks one place in my neck it's constantly pulsating
