Hi everyone,

I am on Buhner protocol and was making slow yet steady progress.
Then I got a cold and its been 4 days since my symptoms are gone, but now I feel absolutely miserable, worse than when I had the cold itself actually.
I can only stay awake for 3 hours at a time, my muscles are weak and I have a constant headache.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on?
I was able to stay awake all day long before this cold.
Is all the progress I had made with my Lyme (before my cold) gone now?
Is there anything I can do?

Thank you all.

I doubt if the progress you made is gone now...it just may take you awhile to recover.

Did you stop the herbs while you had the cold symptoms?

I would take it easy...don't push yourself...rest if you need to.

I had a cold that apparently turned into a secondary bacterial infection. Do you think you could have the flu now?

Don't worry about losing progress. I've been going through the same thing. We'll regain it. Please take care of yourself and get plenty of rest, fluids, and nutrients. Try taking or upping your Vit C to boost your immune system.

When I first read your post, my first thought was you went from a cold to the flu. Maybe??

Did you add any new herbs recently or increase doses? Could also be coinfection symptoms coming out.

I am going through the very same thing. I had a really bad cold last week and sx ended about 4 days ago but I was left feeling really weak and dizzy and tired. I've been taking some elderberry syrup and I think that is helping things improve.

Thank you guys so much, I don't know if I have the flu. I don't feel anything besides extreme fatigue and weakness? It's really concerning me. I don't want to lose all the progress I made. Freaking out sad

Thank you so much for asking Girlie, not sure if any of you were praying for me because I feel much better today. Kind of like where I left off before the cold. Thank you all for the support, it means a lot. This place is so great.
