Yes, I too saw an increase in joint pain when on these 3 herbs. I added nettles to the mix per Buhner's instructions for joint pain in his book, and that took the pain away again. And then the other shoe fell...my gut shut itself down from esophagus down...and I haven't been able to eat since. A few LLMD/LLND's and I think this is a result of Lyme/Bartonella herx gone amok, and my body has not been able to recover due to how long I've been sooooo sick (chronic malabsorption = malnutriton; not enough raw materials to make repairs = inability to recover from herxes or flares sufficiently = continual down-hill slide).
So be careful and make sure you are doing detox. Take care,
