It has been 4 days since I started taking the prescription meds, Azithromycin and Nystatin, and today I feel like absolute crap. I slept for 11 hours last night. I just feel more tired and out of it. No pain or anything. Just extremely tired and cannot focus at all. Nothing I do or take alleviates my tiredness. I hope this doesn't last too long. On top of that, I feel like I am starting to get a cold (or herx?). My nose is running, I'm getting stuffy, and I'm starting to get congested. It seems to help when I take cold/allergy medicine. I didn't feel this crappy when I was just taking herbs...

And yeah, I am detoxing. I use activated charcoal, my rebounder, detox baths, and the detox/drainage kit given to me by my LLND.

That can be so hard to tell. I've been trying to figure out the same thing all week. My current guess is both. Maybe both for you too? Hope you feel better soon.

There's a lot of members posting about catching a cold and/or flu virus the past couple of days.

If it is a virus, your symptoms will subside soon. Rest as much as you can.

I have extreme fatigue this week as well and can't quite figure out what triggered it. I am not sure if it's a herx from supplements I am taking or maybe exercising a little too much or maybe I am just fighting off a virus. I don't know but I am hoping it passes soon as well. I figure my body is telling me to rest so i plan to do just that all weekend. I don't have any cold symptoms, just major fatigue, can't focus, inflammation, etc. When I took azithromycin it made me extremely tired as well so you might have a little bit of a herx/cold combo going on...try adding in some vitamin C and rest as much as you can.
