    When does a herx end?


    This is probably one of those questions that dosen't have a specific answer, but can anyone tell me how long a herx lasts and and what point you can reasonably expect to feel better than you did before it started?

    I am on week 4 of this round of meds, and have felt "fluish" for weeks although that is beginning to subside. I have achiness in my knees and hands and other joints where I never used to have it. This just started. I can't tell if the almost constant nausea is from the Babesiosis or the Flagyl.

    The thing that is driving me crazy is that I feel so spacey and weird. That and I keep having these flashes of anger and also just feel like I'm watching everything through the wrong end of a telescope, if you know what I mean. It just seems weird and surreal. I want to do things but I can't even function like this, I mean I can't even plan things never mind actually do them.

    It's probably exacerbated by the fact that I 've become isolated and don't have anyone to talk to about it here. Sorry to carry on, I just wish I had some idea what to expect.
