Can Lyme Herx Cause Pots Flare?


Recommended Posts


I'm struggling with Lyme induced POTS. Started doxycycline for the Lyme a month ago. I have had definite herxing (flu feeling etc) rather cyclical but Sunday and today checked my bp/hr when feeling poorly and my HR was elevated for me to where I get POTS symptomatic. HR BP had been fairly stable for about a month. I know many of you have battled Lyme. Can a herx cause a POTS flare and/or HR increase?
