Background - on maintenance protocol taking abx one week a month on M/W/Th/F
Last night - a few hours after taking my Rifabutin, mino and Ceftin, a herx set in with fever 101, high heart rate and horrible thoracic area back pain. I questioned whether it was a herx - how can I still be herxing ??
Maybe it’s because during the 3 weeks off of abx, the Bacteria is flourishing and then I hit it with abx.
I went to bed and had a hard time falling asleep with the rapid heart beat. I managed to get a few hours.
In the morning I woke up with my usual “Pang” of anxiety plus sweating.
Got out of bed and no back pain.
This lasted all day - I can’t remember the last time I had an entire day pain free.
It’s 8:30 pm now and I now have some back pain - maybe a 2 out of 10.
Had monthly lab work done several days ago and my wbc count was higher than it’s been in a long time = 4.8
I had a phone call from the J clinic a few weeks ago - asking if I was taking the leucovorin (folate) as that was good for wbc because mine is always lower than they liked.( 4.0 to 4.2)
I wasn’t - I had stopped taking it when I stopped taking the dapsone and daraprim.
So I started taking the leucovorin again now my wbc count is higher.
I’ll see what happens next time - I’m continuing to take the leucovorin - so hopefully my wbc count will stay up or even increase more.
