Hi everyone,

have been feeling pretty desperate the past few days and needed some extra prayers. I am in the midst of a horrible Babesia relapse. Started with migraine last weekend and I never recovered. Had increased HR up to 130’s at rest that has started to subside the past couple days but still having bad palpitations, brain fog, severe fatigue etc feels like constant weight in my chest. Haven’t been able to go to work. Thankfully I have Fmla. I’m just scared bc no detoxing is touching this stuff. I woke up in a lot of pain today bone muscle pain. Tens unit is helping some.

Just looking for some support and prayers. Not my first herx but it’s one of the worst I’ve experienced in a long time. I had been on minocycline and malarone for 6 weeksish maybe more or less. I had been doing well other than struggling with mood symptoms. Doc wanted me to start co artem plan was to wait until I had been feeling well on malarone several weeks before starting co artem however I began flaring up bad while still on malarone and she recommended I stop malarone and do 3 days of co artem. I did Wednesday through Friday. It’s been hell. I’m assuming it’s worse bc I was already herxing when starting co artem. Ugh I’m just so exhausted and ready for this to be over. I keep trying to remember that the herx won’t last forever but ugh when your in it it’s just feels like I’m in a black hole.

Praying for you all today. Thanks to anyone who reads this. Hope and pray we all have better days.

im also home from work bc im dealing with my worst herx in three years...overdid herbs, and then mistakenly ran wrong autochannel on rife machine (meant to use virus one i made but did lyme channel, for WAY TOO LONG)...

only advice i can give you is the mantra i keep playing through my head...i feel awful bc i killed too much, but i did KILL some of this crap, and maybe on the otherside of the herx i will be ahead of where i all of the detox solutions that we know and love ( i should plant a lemon tree orchard for crissakes)...i was able to walk 20 minutes today, swinging my arms like a goober to get the lymph system moving....EVENTUALLY it should ease going on 10 days today...think positive, its all you can do

dbwilco, thanks fo the reply. sorry your struggling with herxing as well. I did manage to get up and trying epsom salt bath now. Hoping this awful herxing will end soon for both of us. I have never used a rife machine but I do have a parazapper will try that again later as well. Definitely trying to stay positive and remember that I’m definitely killing a lot of stuff off right now.

Sorry you’re having a herx from H-LL

Epsom salt baths are the most effective when I’m having a tough time - which isn’t just herxing but also my flares that sometime feels the same as my herxing

Hope you get some relief soon! (And you too , dbwilco)

Thanks girlie muscle bone pain flared up so bad again last night and today but feeling a little better tonight. I’m taking charcoal between meds and seems to help some will continue with that. Trying to stay positive but so scared and anxious about what’s happening in my body. I know I’m herxing but just the fear of the unknown. I praying and believing tommorow will be a better day.
