I started Lyme / Bart treatment about
2 years ago. I began the treatment with supplements and Paleo Diet, worked up to Buhner herb protocol, then finally to Doxy/Plaquenil/Rifampin/Tindamax (pulsing on weekends) abx which is where I am at presently. So far nothing has really moved the needle for the muscular skeletal pain and fatigue I experience daily. In fact, Pain symptoms have progressed significantly, which I certainly was not expecting.
Is the increased pain a herx reaction? I was under the impression a herx is a distinct spike in symptoms returning to a higher baseline of health after the herx. I have just experienced a gradual worsening of symptoms since I started 2 years ago without noticing a discernible pattern of symptoms as it relates to herbs or abx. Not sure what my next treatment approach will be...new abx protocol?
Also, I had a clear facial complexion until I started treatment. Once I began the Lb Tonic I began noticing small acne on my forehead, not bad but noticable. Now that I'm on abx my acne has gotten much worse. At first I was hopeful that it was a detox reaction of a bacteria die-off, now I am just wondering if it is the result of the abx just messing with my good bacteria balance. Anyone else deal with acne as a part of the treatment?
