[QUOTE=sarah92202;3001220]Chantel, with the Herx's you may experience symptoms that you have never had before. My son and I started having these body jolts, they felt like they started in the core of our body and would make our entire body jump. we also started having the tingling, mine in my left hand, and him in his leg. He also had this burning feeling on his skin and thought he was being bitten by fire ants, but he wasn't. You are going to feel worse, but don't stop taking the ABX's keep in contact with DR. F if things get too bad. Besides the Acidoph. you should be taking Magnesium and vitamin C, not regular c though Ester-C with Bioflavanoids, make sure that the Bio's are half the mg of the C. As for the ABX's that really depends on the patient. Flagyl and plaq. are not used together, they are the cyst breaking drugs. either needs to be combined with a microlide( Biaxin, Zithromyacin) or a tetracycline (doxycycline, Minocycline) I take all 3 Biaxin, Plaq. and Mino. so does my son. I would stay away from the Penicillins(amox.) and the cephalosporins (Ceftin) I have read that they are Cell Wall Inhibitors, meaning they cause the spirochetes to hide in the cell walls which makes them harder to kill, then when you stop the ABX's they come back out into the bloodstream and multiply. That is why people will think that they are doing better and stop treatment, then the buggers come out and make them sick again. I am also taking WobenzymN which is a systemic Enzyme supplement, I really feel that it is helping. I have had more success since adding it to my ABX's than before. I have read that other people have had lessening of fatigue with it. But you need to discuss this with Dr. F. before takiing it. My doc thought it was a great sup. to use. Good Luck, Sarah:wave:[/QUOTE]

Sarah,

Thank you so much for all of the info. I already have all of those supplements you mentioned so I am set. I've been forgetting things a lot again but I remember Dr. F. telling me to take Vit c, mag and B 6. I remember now because when he said that, I was kind of shocked because he is the first doctor I've ever been too that told me to take supplements. Most don't believe in them.

Also, thank you for letting me know about the ceftin and penicillin. I want to go in knowing as much as I can so I can feel better and maybe avoid any brick walls. I will talk to him about the WobenzymN too and see what he says. I have that here too. In fact, I will make me a list of things to talk to him about before I forget, lol.

I reschedualed my apt. with my endo until June 1st because of this nasty sinus infection I have. I've been having this since Sunday. My entire body hurts especially at night and my neck is really stiff. I feel like it needs to be cracked but it never cracks. Very unconfortable.

Chantel
