Herxheimer reaction: It sounds like you are experiencing jarisch-herxheimer or "die-off" reactions. When antibiotics kill bacteria, toxins from the dead bacteria can create a wide variety of symptoms including all you mention. To treat help your body detoxify- useful measures include lots of water, antioxidants, supporting methylation pathways, chlorella, homeopathy, saunas & epsom salt baths- see http://bit.Ly/15g4usy.
