I know a lot of you have said you have these same symptoms, but I am really freaking out again.

I keep getting the sensation that my brain and/or

heart is just going to stop...especially at night.

I woke up from a sound sleep tonight because I felt

like everything just "turned off". I've been

getting a lot of "tremors" almost like shivers

throughout my body, but especially my chest.

When those act up, it seems to trigger this awful

feeling. I've had the chills off and on too.

I've been on amoxy - 2-3 grams per day,
clarithromyacin
and artemesinin

I've been on this protocol for months and nothing

has subsided.

Could I still really be herxing? I'm worried that

it's not working and the Lymies are running

rampant and wreaking havoc in my brain/body.

My Dr. tested my amoxy levels a few times and said

it was not at the threshold he wanted to see it

at. But because of my symptoms he did not up my

dose.


Sorry for the long post... freaking out though.. [Eek!]

pammy, [group hug] [kiss]


sure sounds like you are herxing and that's where the spirochete are BEING KILLED OFF; and that's what we all want treatment to do.


you're going to hit bottom when herxing when it continues to kill off these suckers in our entire bodies.


do you have asthma or respiratory problems? i'd use asthma INHALER to help during these times.


been a long time since i've herxed, etc. and i can't remember details well since i've had chronic lyme 38.5 years!!

at least this takes it up for others to come by and reply with how they are coping techniques!


best wishes. get up, watch a comedy to relax yourself and tickle your funny bone! [group hug] [kiss]

Do you have any scullcap tincture or magnesium (& calcium). Vitamin B-6, too will help calm the overwhelmed nervous system, especially tremors.

Is your blood sugar low? that can cause tremors or shivering, too. But if you eat any carbs, be sure to add a little healthy oil at this time of night.

Are you taking milk thistle or other liver support. Artemesinin makes me shiver, too. Liver support and those things I listed above really helped me.

Normally, a big glass of water is not great right before bed, but it may help with getting out some toxins.


Try to get warm with a cup of decaf herbal tea . . . maybe listen to some soothing music - and I hope you have a good night's sleep and tomorrow will be better.

Hugs coming you way.

Your symptoms sound more like Babesia than Lyme to me. I personally don't think Artemsia or Artemesinin by itself will cure babs.

And the latest research says that you need to cycle art -- 4 days on 4 days off -- otherwise it loses effectiveness.

You could get a bloodslide done at Fry labs for Babs. If it shows up then I think you will need a stronger babs protocol.

This is not medical advice, just info based on hubby's experiences.

Good luck.

Thank you for the responses...

Keebler- I've been trying Mag but every time I have

to run to the bathroom...too much info. I know.

I've been taking B6. I don't have any Skullcap..

I'll look into that.

I do take milk thistle.

I feel like I'm getting heartburn now. I wonder
if

it's esophageal spasms...I've had that before. Can

that cause the fluttering? I just rubbed my chest

and the pain is very bad now.
