Yes. Brutal bee-sting like nerve pains. Complete exhaustion and super cranky. Almost like pms from hell... but no, that's something else to look forward too. haha

I was a little cranky yesterday but otherwise feeling pretty good. I decided to take stromectol specifically because the full moon is a good time to hit parasites. Yikes!

Last night I had a horrible headache, dizziness so bad it made me nauseated, chills, hot flashes, sweating and stomach cramps. I am exhausted today. I have not felt this bad in over a year and a half.

I don't know if I had a reaction to the stromectol (I didn't eat anything with it) or if this is a die off - or both. This morning my voice was hoarse and I know that is not a side effect - it is a symptom of PR.

Yes, I am treating parasites, and sick. My stomach and bottom are reacting horribly.

I'll refrain, and spare you any details.

I guess I don't know how to answer that but to say, yes, when things 'flare'

or worse for me this feels like a relapse, and my body doesn't feel well, I am afraid to eat right now, pain, less sleep, then yes,

'trash talk' and 'depression' can come into my mind, and I have to fight it. I have to fight my negative attitude (things will always be like this?? Fear)

Negative self talk, guilt I'm not enough and have to stay down right now. Don't know if you are spiritual or believe in God,

but at these times it can make you dig deep. Reading positive prayers, if you believe in God turning it over,

while getting through, doing the best you can. Stay in today.

These last 2 full moon cycles, I've been treating parasites hard- and it psyically makes me feel like junk-

exacerbates and increases my 'issues' around this disease, manifests it.

Yes, I believe the parasites multiply and make things worse around the full moon.

I have never been able to clarify my Lyme borrelia cycle - who knows, maybe it coincides, but, I know I have parasites.

P.S.
This has been true for me in the past as well, example, Tindamax over a full moon cycle, was harder.

well I have been crying, hopeless and depressed, with flare of jumping out of skin feeling and nausea and dp. I guess these could be parasite symptoms.

Surprise I have also never been able to clarify a lyme cycele, but have noticed that I'll feel really bad every 3-5 days, for about 24 hours. Anyone else?

Yes. Every 7 days for me. Killer head pressure.
It seems to be Mondays lately. I've missed work the last three Mondays.

But the parasites show up in the toilet about 5 days before the full moon. So I tried Combantrin this month. Hopefully it will help knock them down a bit. (I'm retaking it in 2 weeks when I deworm my cats). Just to be sure.

CD57, sorry it's so hard right now--

Honestly, no, I can tell no other infection cycles- shorter cycles like you are describing are some co-infection, as borrelia is longer,

28 days or so. I just have a clear full moon cycle down (days leading up to it), and am peri- menopausal, which is a different 28 day week event than the full moon one,

which hits with PMS- started bio- identical progesterone cream few days ago, and reading up on this- I fit it to a T.

46 years old, had my last baby at 40, and severely crashed after that birth,

which I chalked up to the stress of trying to recover my older spectrum daughter- then, we found Lyme 2-3 years ago in both of us (older daughter only- didn't breast feed the younger one.)

Anyway, the peri- menopausal stuff has been very enlightening, and learning to care for my adrenals.

Has anyone also found that it takes a few days , if you have been on anti parasitics over the time of the full moon, for the herx to clear up?

Basically does it take a few days after killing over the full moon to return back to feeling a bit better both physically and emotionally ?

Yes.

And actually today (day after full moon) I am feeling better, eating more again.

Protocol hasn't changed, nor anything else.
I am a definite full moon-er.

I definitely have issues on full moon days, told by LLMD it is parasites. I get very depressed, intoleratant to life's stresses, slight rage feeling along with anxiety. I continue to hit parasites hard with Alinia, and Mimosa during the full moon phase.

Bringing this back up.

Past posters how are you feeling with the Full Moon coming?

Not sure if the Full Moon is related to DD's heightened anxiety, sleep etc.
