Anyone see an increase in their symptoms from this past full moon?

I've noticed-more aches/joint pain/fog, and generally always notice more anxiety

Like to open a quick discussion on this topic as I know that is has been brought up many times.

I've had joint swelling and joint pain. That is not my main symptom and that is strange.
My main symptom is/was chest pain and breathing problem and it is getting better lately.
I guess symptoms are migrating or co-infections are changing.

I've had a horrible time the last 6 days, I imagine the full moon increased the herx symptoms I've been having. Over the weekend I could barely get up I was so achy and fatigued.

Absolutely. There is a big difference for me during the full moon cycle.

I don't feel anything with the Full Moon.

I wonder if it depends on which infection(s) we have .

I have had horrible joint pain. Typically I also have horrendous anxiety. This month hasn’t been as bad for me on this. I think essential oils might be helping. The joint pain has me regretting getting out of bed every morning. shakehead

Oh geez, thanks for reminding me, I forget every time that it's happening.
I have increased pain (nerve/bone/neck/etc.), bartonella brain symptoms, waking up in early morning (bartonella symptom for me), etc. For some reason it seems this month it's really upping the bart-specific symptoms for me; more often it's babesia symptoms.

The past 2 days I've been having muscle twitching, especially in my legs. It even woke me up this morning. I also woke up drenched in sweat. IDK if its because i have a cold or if it's a herx??

Im having loads of unpleasant bart symptoms including new ones like waking up with shin pain...i am also passing obvious parasites with mucoid biofilm colonies surrounding the thin white worm. Ive also seen the thin white worm inside of ropeworm type mucous a yearvago when i started alinia . Ive found a few posts online linking bart with intestinal parasites...just thought id toss it in there to see what you think...why are three of us having similar symptoms at the same time, ive also had an uptick in those "muscle twitches" though i now often wonder if its worms moving around

My Herx reactions have been far worse for about the last 5 days or so. Twitching in my legs went from almost non existent to non stop for about two days as well. Headache and eye pain/burning/irritation. Hopefully this is bringing the little monsters out of the woodwork and my body is killing them! Hence the Herx?

Major increase in depression symptoms here, along with some physical ones. First time I noticed this.

Doors, I'm on Alinia too but went down to a pulsing dose so not taking it every day now but I will have to look more carefully for the parasites. What dose are you on and is it daily?
I didn't mention muscle twitches but that's a regular symptom for me and I see an uptick with *any* bad weather (cold/damp mainly) but since the weather *is* bad where I live now, I'm not sure if uptick now is that or the moon. . .

We oddly don't, despite being atypical in so many ways... the moon cycle doesn't appear to bother any of us.

I believe people when they say they are affected. I wish we understood more on why though. I so wonder about parasites though (which don't seem to be a major issue for any of us).

Having said that, my kids have STRONG SEASONAL REGRESSION - starting in fall. Summers are, by far, their best season for feeling better.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.

JP, i've been on Alinia 500mg twice daily for a year now. I think the hives came out about 3 weeks in, I had stopped taking the Alinia for a week at that time as I was also having intense vomiting and passing a lot of weird mucous rope worm type mucoid sludge. I thought I was having allergic reaction but it turns out it was a herx.

It's happen enough with the full moon where I can see a correlation, however it's not every time a full moon happens.

There was a bit of an uptick this time.
Lyme (Igenex) - Positive IFA and WB bands 23, 31, 41
Ehrlichia (Igenex)
Mycoplasma (Labcorp) - Score: 595

I've charted my symptoms and they did flare every 28 days (especially before I started treatment). The flares did not line up with full moon or new moon phases.
