I've been on abx (doxy 100 mg 2x daily first two weeks then doubled it and added azithromycin, flagyl to it for the other 7) for the past 9 weeks after finding an engorged tick. Off and on joint pain has been my main symptom so far along with general flu-ish feeling. Well, I took 5 drops of stevia Sat morning and had horrific joint pain all day. My neck has also been cracking since then but now have neck stiffness and an inflamed feeling in back of the neck going up to skull. Yesterday I had a huge pressure headache along with the neck cracks. This morning I woke up and neck felt stiff and inflamed, esp right below the back of skull. Never had any neck issues before and am wondering if the stevia could have triggered it?
Does this sound like a herx or something else? Can a herx be a new symptom you've never had before?
Feeling horrid. Been taking lots of burbur-pinella along with turmeric and vitamin c and had to pop an ibuprofen.
