Is it normal to have low blood pressure while herxing? I am currently on amoxcillin atx, I have 5 days left of a 30 day treatment...Has anyone else experienced low blood pressure? Also getting what feel like hot flashes, and a weird heavy and tingling feeling on my tongue is thiis normal? Thanks in advance

I have experienced bouts of low blood pressure both while herxing and also when not. I also get bouts of wooziness and that awful faint-feeling, and bouts of hot flushes (or flashes).

My LLMD said that the low BP, wooziness, and faint-feeling are caused by autonomic nervous system dysfunction, which can occur with Lyme disease. I learned on this forum that a lot of Lymies also suffer from this, so you are not alone.

I haven't experienced the heavy, tingling feeling on the tongue.
