Herxing Like Crazy Even Off The Doxy

    I've been off the Doxycycline for two weeks now and am Herxing like crazy today. Either that, or I caught the bacterial intestinal infection my daughter brought back from Europe. In either case, my toilet is my best and closest friend today.

    I really believe it's Herxing as I have the telltale burning in my torso. I've never had this with anything but the Herxing.

    It has been normal for me for about the last six months to feel really well when I go off the Doxy and to Herx hard about two weeks later. I will see how long I can go without any of the mycoplasma symptoms' returning. I will stay off the Doxy now as long as I can as it seems my own immune system is taking care of the little beasties. My biggest fear is that some will survive and start to recolonize inside my cells. If I wait til the symptoms reappear, it will be a step backward and I will have to start the Doxy treatment all over again. It's all trial and error.

    I see my PCP and specialist on the 19th and will try to get a month's supply of Famvir to see whether it will put me into a remission like it did when I was on it for 10 days. I now believe I also have a stealth Herpes-family viral infection which will have to be brought under control for me to recover from the CFIDS.

    This is just one of my regular updates to let y'all know what is going on as I do seem to be getting better. As always, the Guai seems to be keeping the FMS symptoms reversed most of the time.

    Love, Mikie

    I appreciate your kindness. My Herxes are very short lived these days and I always feel really well afterward. It's just part of the treatment.

    Love, Mikie
