Has anyone ever gotten a clear runny nose from a herx?
I started to get a fever and swollen/mildly sore throat almost a week ago. The fever was 103 now down to 100-101 but I'm still taking advil. Prior to the fever I had been headed downhill for weeks and things got worse after adding Plaquenil to doxy and rifampin.
I hardly ever get "colds" and I haven't been around anyone who was sick. Do you think this is a herx or a cold? I'm also having a lot of pain in my muscles and joints which could be from the fever or an exacerbation of my normal Lyme and coinfection symptoms.
I was also in the woods recently and saw quite a few ticks on my clothes although I didn't see any attached. I'm thinking I'm pretty much covered with the meds I'm on but is it possible it could be yet another re-infection?
Oddly enough I am extremely hungry also for the first time in months. Yet I'm losing weight again.
I'm having runny noise with clear mucus, coughing, fever and muscle pain right now. Although its been about 2 years since my body has herxed this much, it feels very familiar!
