Brain herx ... whoopie ...

Jun 30 2011

It started yesterday, getting worse throughout the day. I didn't think much of it at the time -- I've been feeling bad for so long it that it seemed pretty normal.

 Woke up okaydespite not sleeping well. Three hour later I had to coax myself into the shower, mumbling to myself "after a hot shower, you'll feel much better."

Called Dr. J. to let him know the ritalin stopped working. I was hoping he'd give me something stronger; instead he told me to stop taking it all thoughter. Bah . . .

16 days until the MCAT. I haven't studied in the past 2 weeks. I'm really scared I'm going to fail a 265 dollar test.

The pain in my head is pretty bad. I'm hoping it's not as bad tomorrow, be I fear it will be worse. 

Body is twitchy too.

I really hope I don't fail this test. I'm so scared. Don't know what else I can do.

I'm sorry to hear of all of this. I am searching on here about Brain Herxing because I have become a complete NUTCASE since starting the Flagyl in addition to the Amoxicillin and Zithromax. Am I the only one who has become a psychotic crazy person on antibiotics??? OMG This is so hard.

My body has been twitching as well which is very strange feeling. I also get rigidity like my entire body is stiff and i have to try to let it relax but it doesnt work. I took myself off the Metadate (like ritalin) because I am worried it is contributing although I never had a problem with it in the past.

I dont know how I would get through a huge exam like that. I can barely hang onto my job!! I have had to get all kinds of things to help me stay focused and organized.

This is such a freakish disease I am trying not to lose hope of ever being my normal self again.

I leave it in Gods hands..
