Herx Force One

ImageI appear to be having a major “herx” reaction to my meds. This is apparently “good” because it means the drugs are working.

Basically, it’s a result of the bacteria dying and spilling their guts into my blood stream – their guts are basically endotoxins to which my immune system suddenly goes “WOOOOAAA!” and kicks off a massive street fight in my body. The symptoms of that are basically huge headaches, mental confusion, fatigue and insomnia. I can say without reservation, yes, they are the fucking symptoms.
