I havne't posted in a while because have been really doing well.

Last night had night sweats,,nothing major but still there. Today, I have horrible malaise sweaty, no fever.

Havne't started any new meds. Could I be herxing? I really feel like death.

It be the bart since I am only on bactrim ds for this.

LLMD won't use other notable bart meds since they interact with mepron.

Please help....

I'm sorry Janice. My doc did iv zith for bart and each time I went into remission. Until this time when I'm ready to hang it up. I'm on herbals now, last night for the first time, ankles killing me, psych symptoms so off, no joint pain this time. I'll never understand this. My herbalist says every disease she treats gets worse in the spring. Maybe herxing plus change makes you like this. I'm scared, tired and disgusted, I feel like I traded me in for something I never want to see again. I'm sure you feel the same way. I'm so sorry you're going through this. Trying to pray, nobody would make this go on for so long. Feel good and hold on if it is a herx.

What is your current treatment?

Mepron and Bactrim?

Mepron made me feel and look like death but it got rid of babesia.

Janice-maybe it's just a herx. Although bactrim also hits bart-got rid (i hope) of mine

How long has it been since you upped your dose? If it's 3-4 weeks, probably a herx

I upped it a while ago but then backed it down due to crying. She upped it about two weeks or so ago.

How are you doing?

I'm up and can't get any sleep. I still have a fever but feel somewhat better.

Now have tingling. I know this is herx. Just not sure from what.

Sorry you don't feel well. I don't know what to say since I didn't take those drugs. I have heard people go through h-ll with that. Maybe you can do a search to see how others did with the protocol you are on?

Feel better soon!
