It looks like the herxing has started though it's hard to tell if it's because of the Olive Leaf Extract or the Minocycline. If it's the Minocycline that's good news because it means I might not have to take Valcyte.
I feel like I have the flu. Muscle aches, stomach upset, bad brain fog (worse than it normally is). The lymph nodes in the back of my neck are painful. And my intestines aren't happy. We went for a tiny drive tonight so I could take pictures of some flowers. During the car ride I felt lightheaded, dizzy, and generally unwell. The herx comes and goes. Sometimes it feels really bad and then fades into the background. Right now I'm lying on a heating pad. The heat helps.
I've read that drinking water with a whole lemon squeezed into it helps along with epsom salt baths. There are some other things that are supposed to help but I can't remember what they are.
If this is what I have to go through to get better then bring it on.
I'll skip the Olive Leaf Extract for the next couple days and see what happens.
I picked out some songs from itunes earlier. I also picked out some new earphones for my ipod since the ones I have need tape to work.
