Thank you for sharing your experiences.
I think 1-day is actually the typical length for me. The longest I've ever had is 4 days (usually before my cycle) but the 4 day "herxes" before my cycle don't typically bring me to my knees and put me in bed. They are just worsening of symptoms. The 1-day random "herxes" are the ones that are intolerable (but better now than 2 months ago) Not sure why my LLMD is saying 1 really bad bedridden day, doesn't usually indicate a herx... I think it's because she is looking for a trend on my calendar, one the supports the bacteria's life cycle... Which makes sense, but then, what would be the explanation for the 4 or 5 random horrible days throughout the month... Maybe just needing to detox? So its actually the abx causing these horrible horrible days...?
Or maybe a confection(s) is contributing, as the life cycles are all different...? Who knows? Very frustrating.
