This is really weird. I am having some anxiety and my body just feels extremely weird. I only just started taking antibiotics today so I'm thinking it can't be from that.

I have that 'uncomfortable in my skin' feeling....the creep crawly sensation....and I am now wide awake! I kinda feel like I'm on the verge of having a panic attack...but not. I guess that doesn't really make any sense though.

I tried to close my eyes and go to sleep but I can't and I almost feel like I have electricity running through me.

Anybody relate to this? I keep telling myself I'm fine but this is just too damn weird!

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.

Hi there,

I think it definitely could be from the antibiotics. My anxiety flares up really badly on biaxin and also on doxy, though the biaxin is worse.

I can't figure out if it's a herx or if it's just the way the antibiotics affect me. Either way, it's unpleasant.

Of course I can't tell you for sure that that's what you're experiencing, but in MY experience, yes, antibiotics can bring on panic attacks.

I hope you feel better soon, anxiety is no fun.

That was a herx for me. It felt like I was hooked up to a virbrator. It went away eventually. It resurfaces a little if I change abx.

I feel okay this morning so I'll keep an eye on things and see how today goes. I assumed it couldn't be a herx since I just started abx yesterday but I will add that I have always been overly sensitive to meds.

We shall see! Thanks for the replies.

I use to have that electrical feeling all the time. I think it was a neuro symptom of LD. I would really notice it if I laid down to try and relax. Felt like an electrical current was running through my body. It has gotten better with treatment.
