I know its been answered before, I know it can be days, weeks... but I need to ask it again...

How long can a person be herxing? Ive been feeling miserable since last Friday...going on 5 days of headaches (migraines, auras, carotyids), nausea, weak, flu like...

Im sure it has to do with the fact that my abx were upped 2 weeks ago, I added oregano oil as well, my blood was just reduced (phlebotomy) on Friday, and my 28 day cycle is just finishing... but man... I just want to cry I feel so miserable...

Sorry to whine...just looking for sympathy... I was doing well with the protocol for a few weeks, but this last flare has lasted longer then the past ones...

I'm going through this with my 11 year old right now. Started last week, Thursday, she was changing classes in school and suddenly didn't know where she was. These episodes are then followed by pain, numbness, burning, etc, that moves around her body.

Then it all stops and she's ok again. This has been going on several times a day - just picked her up from school as she had a terrible episode first thing this morning.

Seems like a Herx but this is the longest we've experienced since she started treatment beginning of July.

Nothing worse than watching your child go through this.
