Wicked herx, this is like a pressure all over my head like someone is squeezing it and making my eyes push together. Also feels so fuzzy/foggy/strange. Almost like a headache but not exactly pain - but sounds even are muffled, almost a noise in my head like a buzzing.

are you doing any detox, like charcoal?? maybe taking a couple times off would help, as far as the IV's go too....I'm sorry you're feeling so aweful....

have you done bicillin shots? I know Danny had tremendous sucess with them

Yes actually I don't go for my next IV until Tuesday so I might be able to enjoy a little break. I have the activated charcoal and sometimes I feel like I should not take it because I feel like I am always taking something so it will just counteract the other meds. (?)

I am going to try that olive oil/lemon thing tomorrow -

It is horrible feeling like this but I feel like I am finally really making progress in killing these spirochetes....How are you doing Jaime????

Sounds so utterly familiar...I hate the feeling you are describing, it isn't fun at all.

Let us know how the lemon/olive oil goes. A/C can be used too - I have done both. A/c for me, I will take a few days in a row and then notice some "clearing" of the fog etc. Just take it two hours before and/or after medicines.

I hope when the month is over you notice some really good progress and all this will have been totally worth it.

I'm hanging in there...been a terribly busy couple of weeks...I was a group leader for vacation Bible school...3 hours a night, for a week, in charge of 30 kids ages 3-12...then yesterday was my mom's bday and she wanted me and the kids to go to the zoo with walked around there for about 6 hours...really really hurting... hub doesn't get it of course.... now it's the weekend and he'll want the house cleaned, and I hurt from my toes to my head. But I will put on some awesome Christian music that gets me going and do what I have to do!

let us know how the other stuff goes :)
