After 6 months of frightening symptoms:
Chest pain, shortness of breath
Paresthesia (painful stabbing all over my body), Muscle Twitches
Head pressure, brain fog, drowsiness, fatigue
and after going to my PCP, Two Rheumatologists, Hematologist, neurologist, cardiologist i was told by my primary care provider that it was anxiety causing all my symptoms....shortly after I became aware of LLMD's in my area (NJ) and immediately booked an appointment. I began treatment the first week of January 2018 with Bactrim given to me from my LLMD, since i had a positive western blot test.
Two weeks into the medicine i believe i began to herx as my symptoms especially the paresthesia increased to a very painful point. It then calmed down for a week and the pain returned soon after. I visited my LLMD and told him what had happened and he responded by saying the medicine is working.
I have become worried as to when and if the herxing will become less severe. I also am worried that the medicine isn't helping and i am just become worse with my symptoms. The pain keeps me up at night and goes on throughout the day, it will usually last a week and then calm down. I am a little over a month in and the herxes seem to happen every other week. Has anyones herxes happened that frequently?
I am wondering how often people herx? and the severity of the herxes
Thanks to whoever reads and/or replies!
