Hi everyone.

I was wondering if you can tell the difference from a really long herx and a setback?

I have felt poorly for a couple weeks now. I think it was started when I had to get a colonoscopy.

I think the prep really sent me into some sort of crisis. Just a guess though.

I was telling everyone who asked how I was doing that I am making slow improvement and was functioning at 50% instead of the 10% I was at when I first saw my LLMD.

Well I feel I might be at 20% right this minute.

My glands are huge. They have always indicated how I was doing, the worst I feel the bigger they get.

The pain is unbelieveable. Sweats and twitching like crazy.

The most worrisome is the brain fog is back. It had been gone for 2 months.

I am wondering if I could get aseptic menningitis again, even though I am on Biaxin/Plaq??

All I have been doing is sleeping, which I know is important, but I would like to see my Hubby at some point!

Thanks for any advice- Melissa [Frown]

Hi Merrygirl:

I would guess you are having a temporary setback due to the trauma on the body (mostly the prep).

I still get setbacks and I'm a year and a half into treatment. Still need a nap everyday too.

I had five very good days in a row and now today I feel crummy. I started a parasite cleanse this week so it may be die off.

It's very hard to tell sometimes, isn't it?

I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like you are listening to your body and doing the right thing by resting.

Thanks for your advice as always.

The prep was very hard on me.

I wouldn't get that procedure again.

That Prep could have kicked out what good flora you had left in your GI tract.
