Do you have Bartonella? I've heard of "Bart rage" and Lyme can do the same thing, especially when herxing on abx.
I don't know. I'm beginning to suspect it, based on my recent readings of the connection to the bad headaches that I have.
I asked a neurologist yesterday about
getting me tested for it and Babesia (sp?) She said she see if they had the capability or might send out.
The thing is, it escalated to points pretty alarming to me while taking Flagyl, and very probable with the other abx's this past year. So I don't know whether to be looking at the abx directly, or the bacteria, or the bacteria reaction to the abx.
Reminds me of how I notice certain oral flea medications I give my cats. I suppose the flea has to bite the animal to be poisoned by the substance, so the medication somehow incites the fleas to bite. If they have a heavy infestation they will go quite frantic for an hour or so at the start of treatment. I've learned to flea comb them first,to get as many that way.
If this is how the bacteria is going to react, I should hit it will something gentler first, or be prepared to isolate myself until I can take a chartab.
Herxing makes sense,Denikeef! :)
