I've been on treatments before and had different herxes on different meds. But never like this.

I can't think straight enuf to put a sentence together, I'm forgetting EVERYTHING, I'm twisting words around and I'm so confused that I can't calm down without taking a Zanax.

I gat very nervous when I talk to anyone because of this. Also my body is twitching and jumpy- if that makes any sense?

I go on mon. to see my llmd so of course I will bring my journal and try to explain the best I can what's going on.

Is this a herx? I'm on doxy IV. I was on 150mgs. twice a day, but my llmd just uped it to 200mgs. twice a day.

Now I'm really scared. I am also in ALOT of pain EVERYWHERE!!!! I'm currently on Oxycontin(40mg) one in the morning and one at night. I have oxycodone(15mg) for breakthrough pain.

This is a strong dose for me!!! I was on oxycontin 20mg at first but the pain was so bad that she uped it.

But now I am falling asleep standing up. I actually fell asleep on the toilet!!!!!! Not liking this at all.

Anyway, does this sound like a neuro harx herx????

I don't believe you actually said you fell asleep on the toilet!

Het TinCup, Trust me, it wasn't a pretty sight!!!!! At least that's what my mom said.

So, what do you think? am I herxing (neuro) or not? (silly question, right?)

Ok.. enough teasing...

Sounds like a herx to me, chick-a-dee.

You said..

"I gat very nervous when I talk to anyone because of this."

Yes.. VERY familiar. Once you stumble over a word or thought.. you realize you did.. then you focus on THAT... and then while still trying to think and talk.. you stumble more.

Kinda like an avalanche of bumbling idiot things coming out of your mouth.

NOT PRETTY!

You said..

"Also my body is twitching and jumpy- if that makes any sense?"

Yes.. you feel like you are zipping around in 50 directions and can't stop and direct yourself to do ONE thing.

OK..

If the pain gets worse..

CRY UNCLE!!!

No need in suffering so much. OK?

Also...

Watch CAREFULLY your yeast.. which CAN add to the mental confusion.

And.. be aware of any allergic reactions that may occur.

Other than that.. I can only say I am thinking about you and hoping this suffering does you good.

Did that make sense?

You KNOW what I meant.

Feel better soon you goofy baboon!

PS- And let me know if you need anything.

I am here and at your disposal.
