Since a most recent tick bite, I have tendonitis pain in both of my arms. I find that now when I take cat’s claw, the pain worsens. (I have been on cat’s claw for chronic lyme.) So I have stopped using it, and my immune system is worse now. Any idea why this is happening? What would you suggest I do for the pain and my immune system? Thanks so much.
Everyone responds differently to herbs, as they do to pharmaceuticals. You did the proper thing: stop taking any if you get a negative reaction. I would suggest you use eleutherococcus, rhodiola, and ashwagandha instead (yes, all three).
