Shell, to clarify, I was talking with my prescribing doctor about someone else's case. My MS responded beautifully to abx and improved steadily, with little reaction to any of the abx.
I am absolutely fine after two years on abx and plan to do six months of roxy and more continuous flagyl just to be sure I killed all the little pockets of bacteria, then I will be going intermittent sometime in April or May of 2008.
I did not want to erroneously name the co-infections, just speculated on what I may recall from the brief conversation. I said I would check on it and post the info later, which I will. (My interest level in co-infections is mild curiosity, as it would appear this never applied to my own case of MS.)
If, indeed, part of the list of co-infections she was talking about is Lyme, then that makes sense. People often test negative for Lyme when they actually have it, so it may be there, hampering the effectiveness of the treatment of the cpn infection for this particular friend.
