I posted this before and its happening agin. My legs feel like they are about to collapse. Can't stand for too long.

i mentioned this to my lyme doctor but he didn't seem too worried. i'm pretty disabled, sometimes my medications make me a little better, other times like this.

can this be a herx? why does it happen regularly monthly then die down?

thanks

Yes, I have this right now. My legs feel very heavy. They finally felt somewhat normal for a few days on the Mepron/Zith Tx for Babesia. I'm praying it lifts again. I know what you mean and it's terrible.

Had this very thing happen the other day coming down slowly off abx of all things.

Same thing happened when I was ramping up abx.

Both felt like a horrendous herx, I get brain fogged and skin feels warm to touch and then legs feel like they won't hold me and I am very shaky. I feel literally like I am going to drop dead.

I think it is a growth cycle and/or die off and toxins are the cause. Detoxing does help.
