Have tried several different protocols, and have yet to herx once.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I think we've had a few members over the years who didn't herx.


Have you not had any increase in symptoms while treating?


I've read that it's not necessary to herx...and not everyone does.

Have you been on herbal or antibiotic protocols?

I don't think I herxed. I only improved on treatment luckily. I would get a little extra tired after a dose of Flagyl, but not sure if that herx and/ or die-off reaction. I havent tried Rifampin yet, it may bring a herx... hopefully not.

Nope, not a one, even with the Byron White formulas. I do get tachy with azithromax, head pressure with mino but those are side effects, not a herx. My indeterminate Igenix, negative Lab Corp tests and no herxing had me questioning if I really had Lyme. After a year of treating, band 23 finally popped for Lab Corp and my cd57 was super low, so that convinced me. Like Missouri, it's been only improvement. I still have a whole box of Alka Seltzer Gold going to waste cry

I wouldn't get hung up on herxing, consider us the very lucky few!

Consider yourself lucky if you don't herx. It means your body is doing a good job of ridding the toxins. I'm convinced that herxing, especially severe herxing is detrimental to your recovery.

do you ever worry that lyme might not be what's causing the symptoms seeing that it seems like close to 100% of people herx?

I used to think so, but I had the bullseye rash from my first tick bite. I was a kid in the 80's and my mom didn't know anything about lyme then, so it was never treated. about a year ago, after a few different lab tests and thinking back on all the symptoms I had, as well as, all the doctors I went to for different "ailments," I'm confident it is Lyme.
