One more question...as I’m being treated assuming I have Bartonella, is there a way to tell when I’m herximg (aka RXs are working) vs. just feeling more of BART symptoms? Do they just just more aggressive during a Herx? Or does something else change?
I’m getting married in six weeks and would give anything for this all to be gone by then! Thank you guys.
Sometimes it's easy to distinguish - ie You get an increase in current symptoms and even new ones start...that generally is a herx...especially if it happens soon after the start of a new treatment for bart. (ie within days to weeks).
If the bart infection is continuing to 'invade' it symptoms can come on slower...but, they can also appear quickly.
But...for some of us...like me...it's difficult. I get flares that aren't herxes...but they have been happening all along...even prior to treatment.
Whatever it is, I would look into getting a good detox regimen going...to help flush out the toxins.
Re: being better in six weeks. Well, no one can predict that. Because you caught it early, it's possible that you will feel better within 6 weeks...but often that isn't the case.
