My 15 year old daughter was in the middle of a 30 day pulse of flagyl (upon taking a cocktail of rifampin and zithro for the past 12 months) on Monday when she came down with what appeared to be her typical "mono flare" ( sore throat w/white patches, fever, severe headache, extreme tiredness...). Her doctor thought it was strep, took a culture and put her on Augmentin. Late Tuesday night her fever continued to spike, racing heart, she was complaining of a stiff neck and her back was hurting and her legs were sore (still after 2 full days of Augmentin). We took her to the ER. Monospot was negative, strep was negative but they discharged her with strep presumption after 2 bags of fluid. She is feeling better today. In light of these negative test results, there is simply now no explanation. Could this have been a herx? Has anyone experienced anything similiar? Thank you in advance for any and all considerations.

Hi and Welcome Heather,
I'm sorry your daughter's going through such a miserable time.

Anything is possible herx-wise and I am not expert.

May I suggest reposting this in Medical Questions. You'll get more hits and input there. Hardly anyone comes down here to the catacombs. [Wink]


I have been having this sorethroat, fever, etc... type thing this past week and have been wondering if it was strep or mono type thing. Sorry not to be of more help.

I'm glad she is feeling better today.
