It’s a herx, flagyl rocked me in the beginning and still does hit me somewhat hard nowadays but it is much more tolerable, seeing the progress, understanding the improvement, and realizing that the drug is easier over time is a good signal that it’s herxing. But it’s breaking up the cyst form of the disease, very important and effective med. it could be side effects but a herx seems more likely to me if you’re only taking it for 2 days periods, but you’d have to dig deeper to see if it’s side effects.
Many of the meds we take for Lyme and co have a ridiculous amount of possible side effects, if you think you’re having something heart related or things are becoming to overwhelming with a med call and talk to them about
it. They can help you identify if you think it could be a side effect. Tindamax is another option instead of flagyl. Herxing can happen not only on the day you take a specific med but it can carry on longer. There have been meds I’ve taken and noticed reactions to the same day and those same symptoms continued to happen everytime I took that said drug. So in that instance I was able to tell that drug was causing side effects, not herxing.
It’s even possible to be herxing and having a side effect from the same med, it’s all a messy area.
