Here Comes The Herx ...
Ok, so this is the 4th full day of Flagyl. and just like clockwork, I'm having a herx. I thought I might be starting one last night as I had some random pains and more muscle twitches but now I have the lovely all-over body aches.
There are two ways to look at this. One is to feel (can't even think of a word to describe how it "should" feel) .... maybe somewhat "assured" that the meds are killing off whatever organisms I have in me. The other option would be to feel depressed, disappointed, bummed that this just confirms my diagnosis of Lyme that much more. I suppose that I am stuck somewhere between the two feelings. Do I have a choice at this point? Not really thinking that I do.
For now, I choose to continue my treatment as prescribed and have faith in God that it will work in His time!
Symptoms: Body Aches, weakness, back, shoulders, legs, lightheaded feeling, heading up to a bath and bed. :( 8:02 p.m.
