Day 6 

I had a horrible evening last night… My head my throbbing so badly that I couldn’t fall asleep.  I was so tired but my body wouldn’t allow me to fall asleep.  

Finally a little before 1am I started to drift off in utter exhaustion… UNTIL my alarm went off and it was time to take my activated charcoal and clay détox powders, down a glass of water and go back to “sleep”. 

Well today the headache lives on… It honestly feels like someone has taken a sharp object and pierced it right through both of my eyes … A sharp deep pain.  And simultaneously has both hands squeezing my brain as hard as they possibly can.  I have head pain like this before… But doesn’t make it any more fun!!!

It f**king kills!  A pain so bad that I almost feel like my body needs to pass out from it to protect itself.  

Anyways… That’s all for now… I start Doxycycline tomorrow… I guess no summer sun for me.  Apparently this stuff makes you hypersensitive to sunlight and you can severely burn if exposed while taking it..scary.

If anyone has any tips for me please leave a comment, I would really appreciate it!

  1. Hi Laura, its Christina (Lady of lyme). I’m so sorry to hear that you are herxing so intensely 😦 … Have you ever heard of Cholestyramine? It works wonderfully to soak up toxins, it’s like a super XL version of clay and charcoal. A little bit of it goes a long way! It’s a prescription, but I thought I would mention it! When I am feeling exceptionally toxic with those neuro symptoms like headaches, crushing head etc I always reach for it. I LOVE charcoal too, but sometimes I need a little more heavy duty lifting!


    • Hey Christina! Thanks for stopping by. Your site has given me so much useful info in starting this process! I was actually reading about Cholestyramine last night, so funny you should mention it! So this was HERXING? I don’t know why, but I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of a Herx. I guess in my mind it was something weird like my arms flailing in the air. But this makes sense now. I will ask my doctor about the Cholestyramine. Thank you so so much!! Xo
