Well, back on abx after 2 symptom free months off (they came creeping back 3rd month)
Last night I had intense stomach pain, nausea and headache and a temp of 101-I assumed it was the stomach bug. However, I had a milder form of this bug last month, around 30 days ago.
To be fair, there is a lot of stomach bugs going around here-I never had a temp with a herx before-has anyone else?

Hi beths,

I run a low grade temp when I have huge die off. Like 99.5. Hope it passes soon.

I can't remember. Is it babs that's bugging you?

Yes, I am fighting bart and babs-I rotate malarone/zith/cumanda then bactrim/zith/cumanda-this put me into remission, but I think I went off abx too soon-should have pulsed longer; but was anxious to "be done".

However, the minute my symptoms started creeping back, I went back on abx.  While I was off abx, I was on garlic, resveratrol and supps-I often wonder if they were hitting something the abx didn't, and it was a relapse, or a herx.

Hi Beths,
I run a low grade temp when I herx, usually under 100.5, but my normal temp is 98 or below.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day  5 months 
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol

I think it's the flu-started Sat with a headache and nausea, climbing temp. Then progressed to a bad cough and congestion. Fever broke Mon, but back again today.

If it's not gone by Thursday, I'll call  my family DR.
