Are brain swelling and loss of ability to form words symptoms of herxing?
| Di33
I am trying to be a caregiver to someone very very close to me. She has Lyme with Bartonella Babesia and Ehrlichia. She is not on antibiotics but instead is trying BVT (bee venom therapy). She has had over 500 stings and is experiencing herxing a great deal. Today was probably one of her worst days. She said her brain felt like it was swelling and she couldn't hardly walk, she couldn't form words well at all, hence she couldn't really communicate much to me while it was going on. She knew she was herxing and I figured she was too from past experience seeing her in great deal of pain. I guess I just want to know if anyone else has experience these types of symptoms with herxing. Thank you in advance for your response(s).

Waiting to be cured.
| Frankie Shapiro
I seem to be getting the flu every 1 to 3 months since September of 2014. It starts the same: soar throat, mild fever and runny nose. Those all clear up with simple regular Tylenol. Then about 5 days later I end up having the worse cough imaginable. It starts off with phlegm but after a day or so it gets really really dry with no sputum at all. The cough never lets me sleep, I miss a lot of work and am home bound for 11 days at a time. I go to the doc each time and no injections, antibiotics or any antihistamine seems to be able to kill the cough. I cannot sleep and my spasms are loud, often, painful and have me choking for air. I have no idea what to do at this point. I am only 37 years old and cannot live this way. I cry so much and want this gone, pls. help.

Cytotec from hell
| MaybeToLate
The 4 April I went to a doctor to get an ultrasound. There I found out that the baby stopped developing in week 7+3. At that point I should be in week 9+3. She suggested I come back after one week for a second check. I came back the 12 April and got confirmed that it was a missed abortion. I got 4 cytotec with me and decided to take theme the following day. 13 April I woke up 5 am and took theme. Went to bed again. Slept for 2 hours. Woke up again and took care of my kids. Got visit from my family member. Nothing happened accept some period looking like pain. Than she went home and it started. After 16 hours of taking cytotec. I was constantly I toilet 3 hours. Than it stopped and I went to bed. Slept the whole night and next day I was fine. Out with my kids. Played football with my son. And started to have pain. We came home and I started to feel sick. Like having an influenza. Days went by with me feeling like that. Than 16 April I started to feel really bad. Started to shake and feel cold. Having a cramp that didn't stop before one hour. I was actually crying. The 17 April my husband took me to hospital. There I found out that I was having still left overs. And an infection. The doctor removed it. Said that there still remaining few small but hopefully they come out it self. I got antibiotics with me home and some medicin that should make me stop bleeding quick. The 19 April I passed a huge cloth of blood. The 20 April I was having an appointment by the doctor who confirmed my MA and gave me cytotec. She made an ultrasound and said that there is just some water left but it should come out it self. The 25 April I stopped bleeding. The 27 April I have had a check up in hospital. Everything was looking fine. The midwife there told me to wait 2-3 months with trying again. As the pregnancy test was still faint positive. I than took one test home the 1 May and it came out negative and have come since than. Now for 11 days I have experience lower back pain and period like cramps but no period. It's 4 weeks and 3 days after cytotec and I am getting crazy not having my period. I want to function normal like before.

My experience with Prevpac
| Ann R
I have had stomach issues for a few years bloating, nausea after eating and reduced appetite. My Dr did an endoscopy with biopsies which showed H. Pylori. I had inflammation in stomach and esophagus. He prescribed Prevpac which was going to cost $530. Called Dr. Office and he changed the prescription to three separate drugs which makes up the Prevpac coat $14.85. I am in my 5th day and the second and third day was very bad with watery diarrhea. On day 4 I woke up feeling a lot better and today same with no diarrhea I also have the gnawing feeling in stomach along with bad taste in mouth. I read everything I could find on this medicine and I applied all the suggestions for taking it. First I took Pantoprozole on empty stomach about 30 minutes before eating which reduces the acid, then eat your meal and then take the medicine with lots of water. Be sure to take a probiotic with the pills. Then mid morning I eat Activia, then eat lunch, then mid afternoon I eat another Activia. This and the probiotics help restore the good bacteria that the antibiotics kill. In the meantime I keep salty crackers or pretzels with me and eat those to relieve the gnawing feeling in stomach. Because people said they could not sleep I take a Melatonin every night before bed and I have slept every night. I am feeling so much better and the watery diarrhea is gone. I do hope after this completed that I will test clear of this bacteria. I never want to have to take this medicine again although it has been much better than I expected. Good luck everybody.

Vqltrax
| Mmatalon101
Hi, My son has pandas. The problem is none of the antibiotics are working. If anything making it worse. Dr Trefliti put him on Valtrax. A Medcine used for coxsakie. We saw succes with the Medcine but after having strep again we put him on antibiotics and doing bad again. We left dr Trefliti due to being unreachable. We went to Dr Shulman and she said valtrax doesn't even help coxsakie. But we haven't seen any improvement besides the valtrax. What do I do

Please help! Colitis history, knee swelling, sore all day everyday, anal fistulas
| Chadley
Okay I'm going to have a little bit of a story here for you all. But when I was 15 I was diagnosed with Ulcertive Colitis and had multiple surgeries for it. Had an ileostomy bag for 3 years. Then it was reversed. Lived healthy for 4 years. Then 2 years ago I started dealing with sciatica. Made it hard to get outta bed but it wasn't awful. Than I started getting abscesses which turned into anal fistulas. I had a complex fistula that showed up on the MRI they gave me. I was in a lot of pain and the surgeon decided it'd be best to put the Ileostomy back on my stomach and give me remikade to "hopefully" get rid of the fistulas. I haven't received the med yet but since surgery I have now been dealing with random inflammation in my knee. There's nothing wrong with my knee that they can find but I have to get it drained weekly. Next day it's swollen. What's causing this? Plus I haven't been diagnosed but I'm worried I also have fibromyalgia because I wake up every morning and my neck, back, knees, and arms are extremely stuff and sometimes get better throughout the day but not always. I get a lot of headaches. I guess after all of this my question is what do I do to live a healthy life without being on meds/antibiotics all of the time? Please help. I'm only 24 and want to be happy.
