I am in a big flare right now and would really appreciate any ideas what to do next.
Besides Lyme and co-infections am I struggling with hsv. Before outbreaks I usually get symptoms which many would describe as herx (body pains, muscle pains/ weakness in big muscles, chest pain, tiredness, flue-like feeling etc.). Valtrex is unfortunately not of a much help, maybe I developed resistance, so this is not an option for me anymore. Now I am struggling for weeks with an outbreak and started taking following supplements and herbs in July:
- lysin, olive leave extract, vitamin c, zinc, neem, oregano oil, nac, sida acuta (20 drops/day), houttynia (10 drops /day), selenium, copper, vitamin B, vitamin E (not every day), magnesium, ALA and l-carnitine (not every day).
Detoxing with act. charcoal.
Hsv outbreak is not going away completely, max. for a couple of days and then comes back and my body just flares more and more, now I get nerve pains in arms and legs, partly very intense so that I cannot sleep, muscle weakness is worse, nausea, headache, flue-like feeling. I am really frustrated and don't know what to do.
Many would describe my symptoms as a herx, but my feeling is that all symptoms are related to hsv. I feel that I cannot push my immune system more, but don't know how to regulate it.
I would really appreciate any thoughts or ideas or your experience.
