Another Antibiotic Added To My Regimen ... Flagyl
I've been dreading adding the antibiotic Flagyl to my treatment but I did my research and decided to just go at it as prescribed. I've read good and bad things about this drug ... some people experience stomach upset which is really what I'm most concerned with. Others say that it causes severe herxes ... which is an increase in symptoms and pain as the cyst form of the spirochetes are being killed and releasing toxin into the blood stream. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
So, yesterday I began with just one pill and did fine with it. This morning I took my first dose of the day and still no issues. I just ate dinner and had my 2nd dose for today ... feeling fine. Don't want to jinx myself here so I am just extremely thankful to GOD that this is going so well this far!
The only thing that could possibly be signs of a herx reaction that I am having right now is a sharp pain in the middle toe of my left foot. Of course my fingers are hurting as they usually do pretty much all the time now anyway.
I will update tomorrow.
