" Sounds to me like a lyme die off turning to toxins in your system. Unfortunately that is what we must go through to get better. I had a hysterectomy at 32 and hot flashes din't tingle or burn, but when I herx it does. Did your doctor explain to you that you will have to get sick again to get better?? Meaning that when we take meds that kills off the spirochettes and that trns to toxins in our system. Saying that then we have all of these weird symptoms. Alot can be quite scary and painfull.
I too have been on Artemisisn and had a big die off. It does take awhile to get use to the fact that we have to experience pain and uncomfortable things to get better. Everyone is different and it all depends on how long you have had it and if you have any coinfections. If you have any concerns I would talk them over with your doctor. I hope that you get to feeling better soon :) "
