Hi guys and welcome Indianagirl.
Frango - I was wondering what rock you were under. LOL Happy to see you again.
Marsha - thanks for the encouragement!
My fever doesn't go really high, it just stays at a temp where I feel like crap - right around 100. On the days when I'm not Herx'ing, it feels so good!
The dizziness may still be there, I can't tell because I walk (shuffle, really) so slow due to the pain of dying Bartonella. It may be a bit better, but time will tell.
I've been Herx'ing for 3 months on Levaquin for Barttonella co-infection. I never had any definite pattern like this when I was trying to fight the Lyme alone. I guess its true that co-infections complicate things.
I am just coming off a bad Herx: rashes red and itching, fevers, headaches, even worse fatigue, crying spells, feel "drunk", can't think of the right word when I am talking, I forget something that happened ten seconds prior.
I tried a detox bath last night, but I promptly vomitted shortly after getting in it. yuch - I despise throwing up. I can handle a lot (cuts, bruises, blood, injections, diarhea, etc) but I HATE vomitting. blech!
I will try another one tonight.
I use a detox recipe I read on the boards here somewhere: two cups Epsom salts and four bottles hydrogen peroxide dissolved into a hot/warm bath. I dry brush my skin to get the lymph moving before I get in.
I increased the amount of ingredients because I gained so much weight and there's a lot more fat tissue for the toxins to get drawn out through.
Tomorrow I try to quit smoking again.
Peace and health to all.
