Hi there,

I am treating lyme, bartonella and chlamidia pneumonia with a variety of abx since last September. I would say that I have been improving my condition (which to be honest was not too bad). Some symptoms have clearly improved other are so so. I am also taking a variety of complements and I have introduced Oil of oregano recently.

Before starting the abx treatment I use to have quite a lot of nightmares but down the road with the abx I realized that i was not having nightmares any longer and related this fact with the abx treatment. That was a great add on! (I have to say that my personal situation has not changed and there are no apparent reasons for nightmares, at least that I am aware of).

The fact is that I started to take OoO drops (essential oil diluted in olive oil) two days in, ten days off and my nightmares started again and clearly correlate with the intake of OoO.

What worries me now is whether this is due to some neruro toxicity of the oil or due to some herxing reaction. If the former I should stop immediately taking OoO, if the later I will have to endure it.

Any similar situations out there?

Thanks for your feedback!

By the way, I have to say that luckily I have not had any herx reaction to abx at all, so far.

I don't know for sure. I'm thinking maybe a herx. This will bump the post up for more views.

I haven't experienced this, sorry. Hopefully someone helpful will come along.

I've taken a lot of OoO and never had nightmares, though pharmaceutical antibiotics have caused them for me.
