How long can this herx last from the biaxin and plaquenil? I hurt all over and my burning and intense neck and spine pain are back with a vengence with the severe spleen pain too. Not sure how much longer I can take this. Someone please tel me this will end soon and I'll feel better for it when it's over.
Thanks for any advice or input.
Take care,
mimi

If it was me I would halt Plaquenil and cut back on Biaxin. Your back pain may be a sign your organs are packing up with toxins. You should be taking Milk Thistle..... work the bacteria load down gradually over time.

Just my $.02 which is equal to, or greater than, all the combined forces of the AMA, CDC, CIA, AAA and AA.

I can't totally Relate!
I've been on biaxin and doxy for 4-1/2 months now and I'm in extreme pain. My skin is burning. Can't eat. Totally overwhelming. Is this considered herxing?

I've been on Biaxin, plus anti-protozoa and herbals for about 6 months and treating Bb and Babes. Did major herxing months before all this but never on Biaxin so my bacteria load must be down now. I have however experienced lower back pain while taking Biaxin which went away after reducing dose temporarily for 12-24 hours and taking more Milk Thistle. I don't concider this backtracking, just adjusting the dose.

Mimi, I hate to tell you this but, you asked? My last 2 years of abx I stayed in a constant herx. That's why I had to go another route. I decided rife was the way I was going. Each one of us is different.

I waxed and waned the first 1 1/2 on abx, then a turn for the worse happened and disabled me. Abx became my enemy. I pulsed and did everything I knew to lessen the herx, couldn't handle it.

Take care, Pam

Bugmenot, thanks for the clarification I did not take my abx last night. Thanks for the advice [Smile]

Pam, hi and thanks for the advice I have been thinking about you and hoping you were doing well. Well I am still rifing for detox and support only and drinking detox tea and so much water. Last night I did the castrol oil pack and heating pad over my spleen and liver. I feel worse today but I know it is from the toxins moving. I will try all I know again today. I am supposed to go out of town in the morning for Christmas.


Treepatrol, Thanks your advice might be the least painful way to go. [Big Grin]
I don't have any pain meds. but yes I do take nyquil to sleep when I am this miserable. Thanks , again

Thanks to all of you [Smile]

Merry Christmas or HappY Holidays,
mimi
