Welcome to our community!! I'm so glad you decided to join us!!
While I agree with what jrpsf has shared, it's a bit harshly put. LOL!! But, still it is true. The abx are not to heal the body, but to rid the body of the bacteria that's created so much dysfunction in the body. So most of us herx and feel horrible, just be sure that the herxes aren't too bad, as they can get life threatening for some.
Everyone is different in their symptoms and in their herxes - I was infected for 40 yrs and on week 3 I herxed for 3 weeks straight - then as long as I kept detoxing in every way I could, I had very minimal herxing from there on out.
I agree with Girlie - if you wouldn't mind listing the things that you are doing for detoxing now, we might have some suggestions. You can also get a genetic test to see if you have a genetic mutation that makes it very hard for your body to detox. There are specific supplements that you can take to help the body detox better if you have those gene mutations known as MTHFR.
