Crystal, when my husband, Dr David Wheldon, came back from his laboratory with a pack of doxycycline, I thought he was mad and started them just to keep him happy. My MS had become progressive and my right arm was paralyzed: a professional artist unable to paint. David had to make sure I took the stuff for a couple of weeks but then I was so convinced that this was right, I wouldn't miss a dose. Within a month I had regained my clear speaking and no longer sounded permanently drunk. After a few months my sharp mind was completely back and eventually any signs of clonus or spasticity had completely gone. Six months later, an mri shoed not only no new lesions but several fading away. The mri was in 2004 but since then I have done nothing but improve. I can't walk as far as I would like, and I can't run without falling over, but I have regained full use of my right arm and so I can work again at my painting.
My cpn level was only 1:64, generally not considered in need of treatment in this country (GB) but David was so sure that an infection was involved somewhere. Crystal, if you send me your email address I can send you a couple of papers written by Stratton and David, one of which lays out the course of treatment clearly. Here is an article which was in Hospital Doctor a few years ago: http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/Ignoring-the-Evidence.html
or on this page of mine, I have turned it into a printable pdf: http://www.avenues-of-sight.com/hownottopaintawatercolour.html
The papers I can send you you would have to pay the journals for! My address by the way, is firstname.lastname@example.org
Most people who would formerly have written here now prefer to use http://www.CPn Help.org
, all lower case, no spaces, which is not just about MS but the other diseases which may be caused by cpn.
I hope your husband can be persuaded because he seems just at the right stage to be able to walk away comparatively unscathed.
