It would seem since I added Andrographis and red root tincture (1 teaspoon twice a day thus far) I have begun to suffer immensely, after having almost two months of very minimal symptoms. This is the 3rd time now this has happened to me, I treat I herx so bad I can't take it anymore, wind down a bit, symptoms settle for a month, start a new herb then im in hell again.
This time, it started with increased muscle aches, constantly all day and horrible creptitus. Then comes the depression. Horrible. Then came twitching and popcorn feeling under the skin, a stabbing pain in my arm. Then last night complete insomnia. I even took my Epsom bath, had ashwaganda, I felt tired then got into bed and felt anxiety, internal vibrations, and feeling that my brain was being poisoned by depression. I didn't know a human being could feel such despair but each time lyme seems to take me further into the pits of hell, and when this happens I feel like I am loosing myself. These bugs are stealing the real me. It scares me.
Anyway I got two hours sleep then had to go to work. I am detoxing as much as I can. What should I do, keep trucking or back off on the andrographis? I feel like I need to keep fighting this time, but last night say awful. How can I heal when I can't sleep properly. Other nights I can fall asleep but I find im im such a light unrefreshing sleep, im almost aware that im half asleep.
Any tips for insomnia/internal vibrations would also be appreciated.
Thank you all so much!
