I am about to start bicillin injections soon, after a year of combos of oral abx. Getting discouraged and need a little boost. Seemed to be improving then just hit a plateau. Off meds for 2 weeks and all (well almost) of my symptoms returned. And bad.
Now on high dose of oral penicillin and it is kicking my butt! My hair is even coming out more. Have been herxing terribly for 4 days. Woke up with a cramp in my calf the other night and it still hurts! Every part of me hurts. Even my knuckles which have not bothered me in months.
Question- any of you have good results with these injections? How bad are the herxes? Having a nurse come to the house to give me it once a week. I am nervous, but losing hope that I will ever feel good again. Wasn't that freaked out before, but now heading into year 2 of treatment and getting scared.
I am a mess right now. I have no energy to do anything. My body is in so much pain right now I find it so hard to believe a stupid little bug made me this way. My LLMD hasn't lost hope for me but when you're the one hurting your mind starts to freak every once in awhile.
Please encourage me. I feel like throwing in the towel,and hearing how these shots can be bad...it's not helping.
