I have been recently dx with chronic lyme; after 2 yrs of misdx of fibromyalgia. I started doxy and metron about a week ago and I felt horrible for the last 5 days. I can hardly get out of bed and my pain, even with pain meds, has doubled. I was told this is herxhiemer reaction and should last about a week and then I'll feel my normal lousy self and then in 3 months I should feel much better and many of my syptoms will be gone. I was just wondering if this is the pattern that others with chronic lyme have followed. I want to understand what is happening to me and what to expect. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
