Started malarone (atovaquone-proguanil) for the first time two weeks ago for my babesia. Do these symptoms sound like a babesia herx?
Headaches all over the head
Stiff, weak muscles and muscle pains
Chest pain (air hunger)
Spaced out feeling
Throat closing feeling
Nausea, Stomach pain
Off balance wobbly walking and constant feeling (like im on a boat)
Yikes - are those all new symptoms since starting the malarone?
Definitely sounds like a herx.
What are you doing for detox? You should be detoxing - multiple methods daily to help flush out the toxins.
It's the toxins created by die-off that cause the inflammation, resulting in an increase and/or additional symptoms to appear.
