Symptom or herx? Got back on doxy I guess a week and a half ago after a quick escalation of symptoms. Since then, I've developed more symptoms, including air hunger and now a new issue -- anxiety. Had my first panic attack ever while driving my son home from school on Tuesday -- a fiasco involving an ER trip. Today I was driving him to school and I felt another one coming on. Felt like my scalp was crawling and I was going to pass out. I had to pull over and have his dad come take him. I waited and breathed and listened to a calming CD and was finally able to drive home with difficulty. The way back home was a road that had shoulders. The part I couldn't do is a winding road with no shoulders. I don't think I'll be able to do that road anymore.
I drive a ton for work and for this kid's school. I have two part-time jobs and one is about
an hour away. I will no longer be able to go there until this is solved.
Now it looks like I can't even drive my son to school (about
half an hour away). He may have to drop out of his private school if this continues because his dad can't drive him both ways every day and there is no one near us to carpool with. (He loves his school and didn't do well in public school.) I feel like I'm dropping all of the balls I've been juggling.
I have a new patient appointment at the Jemsek clinic next week, if I can figure out a way to get there.
I'm wondering if I might have caused a massive herx by taking nattinokinase for weeks when I wasn't taking abx or herbs. Did I release a ton of lyme, and now the doxy is causing a huge die-off?
Also, I was starting the doxy slowly, 100 mg twice a day. I just upped it to 200 mg in the mornings. Should I back off to the lower dose for now?
Should I try something for detoxing today? I take sarsaparilla and I'm supposed to be adding chlorella (which I haven't gotten yet) and charcoal tabs (which I haven't managed to work into the schedule yet). Would it stir more of this up if I try epsom salts?
