I started having slight chest pain yesterday after adding Biaxin to my Rifampin about a week ago.

This morning its a lot worse. It's mostly in the center but does extend to my left side where my heart is.

Is this a herx? Or is this something more serious?

I was on Biaxin a year ago and don't remember having any issues at all with it.

If it continues I think you should talk to your Dr. about it...just for peace of mind...have it checked out.

I've recently had some pulsing pain on my left side of chest...and I don't know if it's the heart or not....

So many things to worry about.
