I have been treating my Lyme and suspected bartonella by my llmd for a little over 4 months and the antibiotic treatment that has included Bactrim and rifampin has made my symptoms much worse and I knew I could expect some really strong herxes. I was very sick for about
8-9 months before I found my llmd.
I have been trying so much to detox...epsom salt, activated charcoal, pinella and burbur detox, glutathione, the list goes on and on, but nothing seems to be helping with the herx pain. I’m afraid I won’t be able to even go back to college after this summer. I don’t know why I can’t seem to tolerate the antibiotics and nothing seems to calm down the herxes they just subside on their own eventually
The past two weeks of rifampin have been very rough...constant sweating, dizziness, muscle pain and spams, head pressure, insane fatigue especially after I take the rifampin, shin and leg pain, nerve pain, and stomach pain
My llmd just got me tested for the MTHFR gene mutation, has anyone run into this issue and tested positive? If so did your detoxing improve upon taking anything for mutation?
The only time I have felt better is a short break I took from antibiotics for 5 days, I’m considerimg stopping antibiotics all together because I can’t keep living like this anymore I can barely get out of the house and when I do, half the time I go home because I begin to feel sick. It’s really starting to affect my relationships and it’s hurting my relationship with girlfriend which is something I really don’t want to lose, she is very supportive it is just taxing on myself and our relationship
I see my llmd after this weekend and was going to talk to him about
treating with herbs for a little while, has anyone tried this approach of switching to herbs successfully?
Thanks everyone sorry to spill out a lot
