I am starting my treatment for lyme. Started last wednesday on doxy 200 mg(yes i know its a little low of a dosage). Starting that night, i went into a crazy brain fog and the next day i had much worse joint pain, fatigue,foot pain,neck pain,tingling lips etc. I haven't really recovered since then.
How long can herxing last(assuming thats what I'm having?)? I thought it was nasty before, but this is pretty rough stuff. I also guess i dont know if its a herx..or just the lyme getting worse but i guess thats indeterminate pending time.
