Has anyone had their long-gone symptoms return during treatment? I'm in my 6th week of treatment for Bart (Zith + Rifampin) and my feet and legs are going numb and tingling, and my muscles are jumping all over the place. Those are two of the first symptoms I had about 5 years ago but I haven't experienced them in a while. Is this part of a herx reaction? Is it normal?

Yes, old symptoms can return. You may also get new symptoms too while treating. When I started treatment, my panic attacks and anxiety cam back full force. I hadn't had problems before treatment for three years.

The muscle jumping is normal when treating. I would let your doctor know about the tingling and numbness though just to be sure.
