Yes, I believe you can die from a herx...but it's NOT common.
Letting a herx go uncontrolled doesn't do anyone any good.
Do what you can to alleviate it...
I know someone who did. (or it's now thought that's what happened) This was many, many years ago - in the 1960's.
She was sick for a long time and in a wheelchair - they finally diagnosed her with Lyme disease and admitted her to hospital for treatment.
She died the next morning.
It was a friend of mine's husband's mother.
