This is what a #herx reaction can look like. This is why having yet ANOTHER UTI. Is such a big deal and also why getting any other “simple” infection in scary as hell. Im on macrobid for 3 days, twice a day. An antibiotic that is mostly used just to target UTIs. However once an antibiotic kills any bacteria related to #lymedisease, the toxins release from that bacteria into the blood stream and those toxins are worse for you than the actual bacteria themselves. Just like how chemo kills everything including the cancer cells, the cancer cells release the toxins inside as they die and it causes the same type of reaction in the body. What is pictured is not for pity, mostly I want to just save this as a record for my doctor cause I’ve never recorded me having a reaction so far, but I’m posting for awareness. Having a UTI for other people isn’t a big deal. It’s annoying and painful sure, but when you take antibiotics, you feel better. When I take them, depending on the antibiotic, within an hour or two, my legs start trembling and I know it’s starting. This time my movements were very jerky and unstable. Pictured: tremors, muscle spasms including in my neck and mouth and jaw, head ticks. Not pictured: loss of leg muscle function, abdominal pain, nausea, brain fog, pain muscle pain, flushing, feverish.
My husband was helping me prepare a detox foot bath and I was untangling the array mechanism in this video. It was very heavy disputes weighing 1 pound if that, and motor skills were greatly diminished. This has happened so many times over the course of the year and a half and I just want it all to stop. Please...please. .
