I started or should say, re-started treatment for bartonella about a week ago. My persistent daily headaches immediately left. The pain over my heart is gone and the first thing in the morning pain in the soles of my feet is better.

When I try to do something, I feel weak. I also feel kind of melancholy. Is this a Herx?

I read somewhere that you do not Herx with Bart treatment. Is that true?

Hey neff!

Is it possible you still have some Lyme or Babesia?

And I would not say you can't have a toxic die-off with Bart treatment. Toxic die-off is toxic die-off.

I have heard someone say you can't- a doc I believe- but I didn't believe it and they offered no proof at all.

Also, a side effect of the meds?

Thanks Tincup - I didn't see this until just now.

I am wondering about Babesia too because sometimes I get cramps and because I feel exhausted whenever I try to do anything - like I am going to collapse.
