that's what I hate with these diseases is it can be incredibly hard to get clarity and figure out what is what.
I tend to herx quickly, as in 30min-1 hr after I take something. But I thing that is somewhat atypical. For a while though I couldn't establish my herx patterns because I was so sick and symptoms were so overwhelming I was in a sea of sickness, I constantly felt terrible.
I know quite a few people herx hard some weeks into their treatment. Did you have flare-ups like this before antibiotic treatments? I don't want to say everything is a herx because it's easy to just assume that and then make some mistakes, but in your case it could very likely be a herx. I think it is a good idea to wait for things to settle down before throwing another abx into the mix!
Houttuynia doesn't make me herx much either... some herbs make me herx but that one not so much. Sometimes it's hard to know what to make of these things!
Good luck!!! hope things calm down soon.
I did have daily flares prior to any treatment...so sometimes for me it's difficult to assess what is what
