    Can anyone explain exactly how they feel when they're herxing? It would be very interesting to hear some of your stories. I'll be looking forward to reading them.

    Thanks everyone,

    Its kinda confusing but when you change meds or start on probiotics or even change your diet, the bad bugs in our body start to die off, makes you feel sick like the flu or a flare. this can occur with good changes we make...At leats for me until our body adjust... Thats how I explain herxing...

    I have been using a product for the past 6 days to cleanse my body. I've also changed my diet and am eating more veggies and fruits. On the third day I started to feel really ill. I feel like I have a bad cold or the flu, i.e.,severe headache, sore throat,painful, swollen glands, runny nose, congested, cough, extremely fatigued, achey...just want to stay in bed. Basically, all my FMS and CFIDS symptoms have been kicked up.
