Asprin and Brain Fog or Herxing

Just would like to ask how many have tried taken a Bayers Asprin to see if there is any relief from the sick feelings of the Herx?

Please post feedback on this, if you haven't tried it, please if your doctor says its safe, try it!

For two days in a row it has really helped me feel much much better! I would like to know if I am just having an up time or the asprin 1-per day is really working.

Both times took it because I felt brain fogged, and about two hours each time of taking it I have had almost complete relief from the fog.

Reason for relief is the anti flamatory affects of the asprin. They believe the fog can be caused by swelling of the small blood vessels in the brain from the infection, causing a decrease in oxygen which causes the slowness and lost feelings. I only know what I am feeling and some info I read about. The asprin is doing something or it is two times the same pattern in two days. I don't usually get relief from brain fog. Once it comes on during the day it progesses for me all day. Only in the morning for a couple hours is it not so bad.

When I first had bells apsly (almost 2 years before dx of lyme) I was on baby asprin for 4 months.... I think they were more afraid I was having a stroke.... Glad it works for you!
