My nerve pain comes and goes - so not 24/7
The past several weeks (6-8 weeks) I have had more good days and parts of days... so I am hoping that this is a trend.
I tried a few things to no avail: CBD oil, Gabapentin, greater celandine and kudzu herbs.
I just recently tried Gabapentin again but I am now weaning off because it doesn’t appear to be helping - as when I am late taking a dose - I don’t feel worse - in fact I feel better sometimes.
I think for me it is treating infections and time to heal that’s helping
But now the conundrum. I was feeling great for a while. My last mycoplasma test showed the score increased (and an active lyme band). My LLMD gave me a mycoplasma protocol concoction. Got to nearly full dose (probably too quickly) and now this.
If these infections will technically always been in my body forever, then when one feels fine, shouldn't treatment stop?
I feel like I just stirred the hornets nest. So now I'm questioning using these herbs.
I hope this is just a 5-7 day herx and isn't an on going chronic symptom.
Next time I feel good and go a while symptom free, I don't care what test show, I'm just going to do maintenance herbs until I have reason to treat more aggressively.
