It’s really freaking me out, I have read previous posts regarding this and most people are saying it’s nerve damage or magnesium Defeciency, could it be a herx? Is there anything that indicates which one of the 3 or could be?

It’s my right calf and I could feel it last night in bed too and this afternoon.

Yes, it could be a herx. I haven't had excessive twitching but others have. Bartonella does a lot to muscles.

I had regular twitching in many places including the right calf. It now happens very rarely. Seemed to go away pretty quickly after starting antibiotics. I have no idea to what bug it should be attributed.

Bartonella POS
Ehrlichia POS

I've had excessive twitching in my calf for a few years now. Got worse once treatment started. It is still there, but more intermittent now. The weird thing is that the twitching started before my tick bite in 2016. I believe I already had some sort of infection that I was unaware of before the tick bite. Even though the twitches are intermittent now, when they do kick off, they can be anywhere instead of just the calves. But, my calves get them the most and most intense.

It could be benign fasciculation syndrome or just the bugs or die off messing with your nerves. Just go with it. Only control what you can control. No sense in worrying about what is out of your control. One thing I have learned with all this is that new symptoms will come and go. It's easier to roll with the punches than to take em tensed up. So, relax a bit. Stress can sometimes cause them to be worse.

Good advice, Hoagie!

Even though my symptoms started in 2009, I still keep getting new symptoms since I started treating with herbs. It's crazy how much stuff these infections can do to a person. I didn't know it was Lyme until Jan 2017. All those years before then, I think I took it all in stride better than I do now. Whenever something new would pop up, I knew it was "it" - the mystery illness and I would mention it to my doctor when I'd see him once a year and tell him what weird new things had happened that year. He believed me that something was going on. He just didn't know what.

New symptoms worry me more now because I tend to take it as a sign that I'm getting sicker and will never get well. Or I get super analytical trying to figure out what's causing it so I can adjust my treatment. I should probably take Hoagie's advice and just relax and roll with it.
