Took flagyl for 4 day pulse. 3 days after stopping, I have tingling in all my limbs. Is this from the medication or a herx?

I have mostly neuro. Symptoms left so I'm unsure if its the lyme being attacked or something I should be more concerned about.

Give it a few more days to see if it goes away. Flagyl can do that, but usually with long term use.

Thanks! Its much better today but still there. Is this a common herx symptom for lyme?

That was never a herx symptom for me.

Here is a quote from Burrascano regarding flagyl:

"4. Flagyl can be irritative to the nervous system- in the short term, it may cause irritability, "spacey" feelings, etc. Longer term, it can affect the peripheral nerves, causing tingles, numbness, etc. If mild, a change in dose may be required. Often, extra vitamin B can clear these symptoms. If the nerve symptoms persist or are strong, then metronidazole must be discontinued or these symptoms may become very long lasting." (page 15)

You may be especially sensitive to the flagyl. Good thing you are not taking it continuously in that case.

You may want to try adding extra vitamin B to see if that helps you.
