First off, one day I hope that I am able to be the provider of information instead of the seeker. Thanks once again people.

On herxing - for a few days my feet killed me. Then I got the headache from hades and my feet stopped. Now my feet hurt again and no headache.

It is like that with a lot of the symptoms. On and off. Is this typical? I'm on doxy, azithromycin and tindamax.

Jan,

Not only is this typical, it's textbook herxing. I know this may be "gross" to imagine but since you started taking abx, the buggers are running rampant around your body.

They're running away from the abx and trying to find different places to hide. So this is 100% normal (even though the inconsistency is frustrating, scary and upsetting...you just have togo with it).

The good news is: They're scared. They thought they had a nice cozy home (with no major enemies) in your body).

Now you're bringing in the ammunition and the civil war begins. I actually enjoy picturing the little *******s scared, scurrying about in a frenzy (like people in a hotel if the fire alarm went off).

Now it's YOUR turn to control THEM.

Hope that makes sense!! They will find the weirdest places to hide. One day they would be in my neck , then choose ONE nuckle on ONE hand, then left hip, then right hip, then lower back, then feet, etc.

Hang in there and trust that it's totally normal and actually very positive!

Best,
