The introduction of an antibiotic can sometimes cause what's called the Jarisch-Herxheimer Reaction or Herx for short. It occurs within a few days as the initial massive die-off of bacteria release lipoproteins that present as antigen. In Lyme Disease, detection of the antigen by the immune system can provoke an overreaction by the immune system that causes the Herx reaction.

Interestingly, consuming too much probiotic - live bacteria - can provoke a Herx reaction, too. The pathogen that is involved in the precipitation of Lyme Disease by a spirochete bacterium called, Borrelia burgdorferi. When the most common antibiotic used to treat Lyme, doxycycline, causes the initial die-off ofreaction. People generally experience a transient worsening of symptoms within 48 hours after the introduction of doxycycline, after which the symptoms recede as doxycycline treatment continues.

Does the timing of your worsenings following a pattern similar to the Herx reaction?
