Anyone know how to tell the difference between if you are reacting to the med and having a side effect vs a true die off of bacteria and experiencing a Herx?
I started my first doses of Doxy and Cipro last night, took my second dose this morning. Am feeling really anxious, my heart was fluttering, wanted to puke after breakfast. I did not have my usual coffee.
Driving in I found myself totally overwhelmed by the road and the other traffic and couldn't listen to music like I usually do. I feel so hyper sensitive and overwhelmed. Also have a headache starting.
I did write my LLMD, and she usually gets back to me quickly. Based on some comments from another poster, I am suspecting this is from the Cipro. I also don't think it is a herx, seems too fast.
Just wondering if others have any thoughts.
