If you have to ask.... then it's not a herx - haha! Just kidding. When I had my one and only herx, I was within 3 feet of a bathroom for 10 or 11 days.... I threw up, had diareah, sinus dripping, sweats.... it was like the bacteria were pouring out of any
opening they could find. I also knew within 24 hours that "something was changing".... after that herx, I thought I was cured, best feeling in the world. Lasted about
4-5 days and then I went downhill again.
I know this sounds crazy but I want to herx until it's over.... I just don't know how to bring it on... what abx's to take etc. During my herx I was on doxy and rifampin. Tried this combination again and nothing happened...NADA... I hate this disease.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Meade
