Really Bad Herx!
I have been herxing off and on since I started my new "yellow paint" drug. It's powerful! But last night was the worst! I jumped in my sauna to detox and was drowning only after 14 minutes so got out and showered to get all the toxins off before they are re-absorbed like I always do. I could feel the air hunger start but it wasn't too bad. Once I was out and back in the living room it hit me BAM-MAJOR air hunger! I could NOT get air, my chest hurt, my chest was super tight, I was getting dizzy and started to tip over and felt like I was going to pass out. My husband was at the store so I went downstairs to take a xanax. I tried to control it for a while but it was just getting worse so I knew the xanax would force my body to slow down and I would be able to breathe again. When my husband came home he found me bent over on the floor in the kitchen, I was trying not to pass out and focus on breathing. When you are like that it feels like an eternity until the drugs kick in. I crawled back up the stairs to lay down and wait for the drugs to hit me. It took a while but I could feel them slowly start to work. Once they kicked in full force, I was drugged and feeling good and passed out for the night! This is exactly why I do not detox at night when it's just me and my daughter at home or just me. You never know what kind of reaction you will get. The sauna got really deep into my tissue this time. It's good it's killing things but way too overwhelming when I am already herxing. Lesson learned, if herxing already do NOT do the sauna! Today I have air hunger and I am super drained but this is nothing compared to last night!
