    Hi everyone,
    I recently started (slowly) on olive leaf extract, I don't know if I have any bugs besides garden variety herpes (doctor won't test), but decided that it wouldn't be a bad idea due to past tick bites and some strange illnesses that were floating around my workplace before I left my last job.

    I read all I could find about herxing. I am on three capsules a day right now and it feels like someone turned up the pain like a high-end stereo. I kind of expected that, but it also seems that someone turned up the volume on the ringing in my ears. Is this part of herxing or am I sensitve to this herb in such a way that I should discontinue?

    Thanks in advance!

    The reason I ask is that I also had some pretty upsetting reactions to 5htp and melatonin that, among many other things, involved really loud tinnitis. I have this ringing all the time anyway, but not this loud.
