so today is my day one of the three days off rifampin, after doing it about
12 days. It is definitely an easier night. I still have these two weird bumps on my skin that I describedin another post and now they feel uncomfortabl- I guess that s bartonella or something coming out. eek. But I have less panic today-
This was the thread where someone said not to stop the rifampin even for a day. So I am concerned about what will happen when I resume it. But at the same time. yesterday I felt so symptomatic all night after the rifampin nd I feel a little less so tonight- and that my body is having more of a chance to detox the die off.
In a few days I do rifampin again for 4 days and I am just going to trust my doctor and hope he knows what he is talking about.
Someone told me treating lyme and coinfecitons gets worse before it gts better but then it gets better so I really hope that is true. Since I started rifampin I have havd a lot of anxiety and fear and things, and not been going out much. Today I feel slightly beter in that way but also that I still have a way to go on the rifampin. I really hope it can get rid of this awful bartonella.
