I was starting to feel so much better pain wise, that allover sunburn skin pain left completely, so did the muscle twitching, head pain, less foggy brained, and muscle spasms, still had joint/bone pain and stiffness though. Anxiety comes and goes....def a little better though.

The beginning of this month i got sick with strep throat and tonsillitis. Ever since I am in so much body pain, some burning skin pain is back, and muscle twitching is back.

This week my nerves feel like they are on the outside of my body. I can't deal.

Is this a herx or did I have a setback due to the illness? I did have to stop my zith and go on biaxin for 10 days, so could i be herxing from going back on zith?

also My doc changed my meds to start treating the bart, should I wait to feel better before stopping the doxy and starting the ceftin and rifampin?

Yeah it's really hard, almost forgot what it was like to feel this bad. Still not as bad as I was though, something to be grateful for.

I wonder if Im herxing on top of it though, idk if someone should start new antibiotics if they are in the middle of a herx?

Hope you feel better soon Shahbah.
