    HERX Question...How long before you herxed?

    I was just curious if everyone here herxed or if some did not herx? Also if you did was it right away or weeks later in the treatment?

    Because lyme can be so difficult to treat, everyones treatment is different, herx time is also different. I can teel you that with myself my DR started me on DOxy first. I took ONE 100mg of doxy and within 45 mins I was herxing...within 3 hrs had lost the feeling in the left side of my face. Remember everyone is different. Somethings will work and others won't.

    Hi trust1.

    No Lyme infection is the same for everyone. Our body's are so different that folks Herx in different ways, at different times and severities.

    On my first abx protocol (Ceftin), I Herx'ed at 3 weeks with fever, sore throat and chills. On my second abx protocol (Biaxin), I Herx'ed at 1 week with the same symptoms.

    I'm currently on my third combination of abx (Omnicef + Ketek) and I Herx'ed within 2 days with a massive headache and a fever. Then, at week 3, I Herx'ed again with fever and a headache. My doctor seemed pleased when I reported this to her.

    When my Herx's end, I feel no better than before. I am still waiting for improvement.
