It's funny. I KNOW this is a herx. But because of the neuro/brain stuff I feel more like I am having a breakdown and my perspective is off and things just don't make sense.

I have been looking for words of encouragement today, but have found none.

Started omincef almost 2 weeks ago and added azithromycin (sp?) last Wed. Right on time (4 days) I started feeling crappy, tired, irritable, achy, headachy, stiff neck on Saturday. I stayed in bed half the day yesterday.

Today I thought I was feeling better but I am so tired so irritable and so frustrated. I have been on the verge of tears all day. I actually think it would feel good to cry if I just could.

Does this sound like a herx?

On the omnicef only some of the minor annoyances actually got better! (floaters went away, ringing went away, started to feel my forehead and parts of my back) I think I started to feel a little more energetic too.

Today I had a horrible day...things just wouldn't go my way. I wasn't in a position to take it today.

Out of state LLMD wants to start IV if I tolerate these meds. The in netwark infusion company says that they will cover the plan IF I can get an in state MD to sign off. Keep running into roadblocks there. How can a solution be so close and yet so far? How can people play with another's life so easily and still live with themselves? I am so tired of the ins and outs and confusion and politics (and expense) of this all.

Thanks for listening and understanding.

definitely sounds like a herx, been through it all and still spent today crying for 3 hours straight

Actually, crying is a good way to release toxins,if you can

I know all about the horrible game the insurance and docs play-I think they should be brought up on charges sometimes-what gives them the right to play with our health?

Hugs and prayers

Thanks. I seem to be feeling a bit better today. Had some good news regarding IV treatment and tried infrared sauna.

Thanks fr the encouragement. I really needed it!
