I figured out pretty easily as the day progressed that my first IV treatment today DID in fact cause a pretty significant herx.

My LLMD did not think I would notice anything after one dose. Well I am okay, but definately herxing. Feel like I have the flu. My SKIN hurts. All over. Like sunburn sort of, or like when you are sick with fever...

I am exhausted and going to bed,.Good nite julie

Julie,
I have heard from some patients the first is the worst. After that the herx isn't as bad.

How would you compare it to oral abx herxing, worse, better, same?

When do you go again?

Well I definately had some horrible herxing from orals. However this is different because it was so quick - I was so tired, so wiped out, and still am over 24 hours after the first dose...I feel horrible, and weak, achey, etc....but still functioning.

I was supposed to go tomorrow for my 2nd IV but they called to cancel so now I go back Tuesday. Seems kinda silly to have such a long wait in between visits.

So anyway as I told my husband, I can see why people recommend the IV abx for chronic/neurological lyme. Feel like it went right in my system and starting attacking those bad guys.

Yep, I know what you mean. The smell oozed out all over me. And I declare I felt it hit my brain! I instantly got a headache and the 2nd time I got extremely sleepy. I love the stuff! Maybe that's one drug I could become addicted too. :D
