I'm a little bit concerned that there isn't much difference for me between Flagyl side effects vs. herxing. However, the fact that I feel better today than before I started the Flagyl says a lot.
I want to find out what other parasitic infections of the CNS that Flagyl can treat. I assume that while other illnesses may not refer to it as 'herxing' as much as we do, it is the same situation when it comes to die off.
I only have CNS symptoms, so the diseases I've read about that pertain to the intestines or fatigue or pain don't really pertain to me. Mostly, my nervous system is just extremely overstimulated and out of whack.
Does anyone know off the top of their head what other infections can cause these symptoms? I'm not going to stop Lyme treatment; I just figured this may be good to look into.
Current treatment (began June 10th 2009):
Biaxin 1000mg/day, Pulsing Flagyl 500mg/day 1 Week Every Month

Chlamydia pneumonia is a 3 life form bacteria and flagyl is also effective at treating the cyst form of that bacteria.
Lyme, anxitey, depression, chronic C. Pnuemoniae
