I was doing pretty well on herbs since March when Levaquin gave me tendonitis and then everything I tried to take had bad side effects. I was so dizzy from the drugs I could not walk. So I started the HH capsules and increased the dose up to 16 a day. I was so mentally out of it sometimes I forgot to take it. I forgot to reorder and was out of it for 5 days during which time I took Cumanda. Anyway I don't know if it is my fault or just the BLO being so powerful, but I began to get symptoms again about
3 weeks ago. I contacted Zhang about
the new HH-2 capsules and he said it might be a herx - wait and see for 1-2 weeks. I was taking ten of those a day which is the equivilent of 20 of the regular HH capsuels. It is getting worse, not better. I have headaches every night, night hot flashes, insomnia and burning in my shins - and have to get up to go to the bathroom every two hours.
So at 4 o'clock this morning I got up, went through the cupboards and found the old prescription of Rifampin. Took 300 mg, half the dose, and am now waiting to see what happens.
This is depressing. Right now I believe this disease is incurable and I will never be well. I was so hopeful but now I am falling into despair again. Thanks for being there.
