I've recently dx with chronic lyme, misdx 2yrs with fibromyalgia. I've been put on doxy and metron for about a week and have been feeling horrible the last 5 days. I can hardly get out of bed and my pain, even with pain meds, has doubled. I've been told that this herxhiemer reaction will last about a week then I'll go back to feeling my regular lousy self and then in 3 months I should start to really feel better, although I know I'll need to continue antibotics. I was wondering if this was what happened to others with chronic lyme when you started treatment. I want to understand what's happening to me and know what to expect. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
