Oh wow girlie... How long after your first dose did the herxing start??
It was always on the Friday evening (after my 3rd dose ) and the first time ever I’ve been I so close to going to the ER.
This happened on cycle 2
My husband had gone to bed (he works saturdays) and I stayed up - and a while later my arms started jerking (never ever had that before)
And then my heart started racing (never had that before either) - then I decided to take my temp and it was really high - if I’m remembering correctly - 103 F
And full body pain - even my head was sore to touch.
...and then my mind started to go to dark places as I googled all sorts of sinister causes for my symptoms - including Sepsis and the one that Dap or Dara can cause - methoglobenemia (spelled it wrong)
I could not sleep.
I didn’t have any Tylenol to take - because we never get fevers so I never buy it.
I woke my husband and told him he might have to take me to the ER
and he needed to call in sick for work.
He drew me an Epson salt bath and that really helped.
I went to bed and he had a camera on me so he could see how I was doing from downstairs
I could tell he was concerned which made me more worried.
It took the entire next week to recover - so I postponed week 2 meds until week 3
