Hi Al, time for a tea break so I'll write whilst drinking.
You should never think that not being too badly affected precludes you from either posting here or finding out about antibiotics because you are interested in them as a treatment.
Everyone, I would think, is worried when they first start that they will find it doesn't help them, whether most of their lesions are in the spine or in the head, but the first aim of antibiotics is to stop progression, then see what happens. It is more difficult if all your lesions are in the spine to get around the lesions, because there is obviously so little space to move around, but stopping progression is just as likely as anywhere else. The best example of that is Guner, who posts in this very section. You maybe have already read his postings. He was diagnosed with primary progressive disease when he was 25, I believe, whilst studying in the States. Ten or eleven years on, and back home in Turkey, he is in a wheelchair, but within months of starting treatment somewhat over a year ago, he managed to stop all progression of the disease. You might care to send him PM. Also Katman, who also writes here. She is away until nearly the end of the month, though, showing her goats at the National Goat Show in Indianapolis.
If you have read all the posts about antibiotics, there are also many in the Regimens section, where I post my updates, and many other people who have been helped enormously. Another place to look is a site called http://www.CPn Help.org
where many of the same people post, as well as others treating for different ailments often caused by CPn.
You say you have read David's website, what I would suggest you do is both write to him and also print out the pdf file on his site:
to show your private GP. I think I might know who he is, if he has prescribed the LDN for you. He would also be welcome to correspond with David. This might be a very good thing because quite a few people started by taking LDN then moved onto abx, often taking both, as well as statins. Some people say that this is not a good idea because you never know which is benefiting you. I say what does it matter if you are getting better? This comes from someone who had only ever taken abx twice in her life, for scarlet fever and an infected mosquito bite.
I wasn't tested for CPn until a few weeks after starting treatment, and then I showed minimal antibodies, when one might have expected them to have risen a bit by that time. That is why David often just treats empirically. CPn is notoriously difficult to test for.
