Does Babesia treatment cause a herx? I wasnt really having symptoms until I added in a few things that obviously babs doesnt like. How long does a babs herx last? Ive read it can last a long time until the parasite load is down?

I had terrible herx when treating babesia. I'm sorry to say. In the beginning I herxed for months. My herx got shorter the longer I treated. I hope this helps.

Sick since January 1985. Misdiagnosed for 20 years. Tested CDC positive October 2005. Treating since April 2006.

My first couple herx's lasted weeks! Severe depression, irritability, anger and so on. Lots of crying for a guy who didn't cry for any reason for years. How are you treating it if I may ask??? Hang in there!

Yes! I felt pretty horrible for months. My doc did give me a break from abx for one week out of a 4 week cycle. That week off was the first time I felt a little better. Those weeks off were a godsend - a break from the herx, a chance to detox, a needed mental break.

Yes, you can have significant herxes from Babesia treatment. I get them. Keep fighting and reaching out for support.
