I am a chronic lymie and am functioning around 90% right now after taking out my mercury and root canals and doing only 3 months of Minocin. Also now work with a naturopath who has gotten me back to work in the last 4-5 months.
I went to the Dr. for a sore throat I've had for about 12 days now. They did a strep which was negative, but since this doesn't feel like a cold and is mild (not better, not worse) they decided to give me a Z-Pack for 5 days. I thought I would herx from it because of the Zith stories I've heard but I feel nothing! I don't know if this means I've worked down my load or not but it's strange as I usually feel any abx hit me in some way. Sore throat is getting better also.
Sore throat has never been a lyme or CMV, HHV-6 symptom for me.
