Since about 3 hours I have developed a very painful sore throat, on the left side of my throat, it’s so painful to swallow not sure if it’s the bugs, a herx or just a virus.

Should I take my herbs this evening?

If it’s a herx should I skip them?

Or just skip the killing herbs?

I think skipping the herbs for this evening wouldn't hurt.

Well, even the herbs that help with your immune function can be contributing to a I'd stop them too.

The alcohol may contribute to the sore well.

Thanks girlie.

I will give them all a miss this evening and give my body a break, hoping to get to the infrared sauna tomorrow so hopefully will help.

Uh-oh. That sounds bad. Bartonella can swell the lymph glands. Red root and/or danshen can help with that.

It could be a virus. Strep can cause a really bad sore throat. I had it once. Sickest I ever was before Lyme. Do you have a fever? If it's the worst sore throat you've ever had or you get a fever, go get a swab test for strep.

Hmm.. worst ever I’m not sure but feels quite bad. A lot of my symptoms at the mo are pointing to bartonella, I’m taking sida Acuta and houttuynia for it maybe I should lower the dose for a few days

On the other hand it could be viral I went to 2 toddler groups with my little one last week, it’s like a germ fest in those places
