Glands permanently up after LDN - infection or reaction to LDN?


Senior Member
Just as the title says; I stopped taking LDN because it was increasing PEM sensitivity, but now I have acquired constanly raised glands (it's lasted 5 weeks). Could this be an infection or just my new normal baseline after LDN wrecked my system? Are there any tests I should do? Is it worth taking a course of Penicillin to clear out any infection I might have? (ive avoided antibiotics for 7 years, which i suspect has contributed to my baseline stabililty). thanks
