Hi! I'm hoping someone can shed some light on what I'm going through and allay (or confirm) my concerns.
Last Monday (6/15) I started treatment for suspected Lyme with 300mg of Omnicef twice a day. That night, I got home from work with a fever of 102, a lot of muscle pain, and soreness.
Over the next four days, I continued to have a fever usually between 99.5 and 100.5, developed a cough, sore throat, night sweats, and headaches (none of these are symptoms that I had experienced previously).
On Friday, I talked to the doctor and she told me to stop taking the Omnicef and see if the temperature went down.
By yesterday, all the symptoms were still there and I went to see her. She said it was probably a herx, got blood to send to Igenex for Babesia testing, and told me to order Chlorella and Burbur and that the fever should go away in the next few days.
Today, it's still here and I'm getting really worried. Would a herx still be going 4 days after I stopped taking the medicine?? Is there anything else obvious I should be thinking of? I don't think fevers are supposed to last 10 days.
