Tried Grapefruit seed extract a few days ago and everything seems to be worse. Feel like I'm rocking back and forth when standing....And today sharp, stabbing chest pain on my left side has started. Left arm is tingling and going numb and bad pain in left hand. Also clammy hot feeling, and chills at the same time....Pressure headache in forehead...and a shaky feeling that comes and goes. Also kind of feel either really sad and down or no emotions at all, like at times I'm just here in zombie form. Could all of this be a herx from the grapefruit?

Also anytime I eat something solid it hurts all the way down, and its like I can feel it hit my stomach...And that also hurts, like a weird burning...jumping sensation. Not sure how to explain it.

Sounds awful.

Why did you take the grapefruit seed extract?

Are you taking anything else for treatment?

WalkingbyFaith - The GSE is a cyst buster

Taytay - are you taking antibiotics with the GSE? You don't want to bust open cysts and not have something to mop up after.

And..are you detoxing?

It is really terrible. Took the GSE to replace plaquenil. Was on 30 days of doxy and plaquenil, and currently searching for a new llmd. The entire 30 days I have felt terrible...Was told by doc it was herx reaction. Jumped straight to herbals once prescriptions ran out.

And yes Girlie, taking:

Cats Claw
And a daily multivitamin

Wanted to mix some that would hit potential babesia and bartonella as well...Since I am pretty sure there is a lot of bartonella involvement in my case.

As far as detoxing just a lot of water with lemon.

I just tried GSE (in a mixture called Agrisept) last month, and it hit me HARD. I took too much too fast, and it gave me awful symptoms for a month after stopping. Chest pain, headaches, GI issues, emotional swings, insomnia, panic attacks, chills, low HR.

So yes, GSE can do that! If you decide to stay on it, go so slow- a few drops a day. I was surprised just how powerful it was!
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
