Here is a list of the improvements I have seen:
-- The stability/strength in my right foot got better (aprox. 30%).
-- My right leg became really heavy after walking for an hour (comparable to a healthy person who would mount 3kg around his ankel), that got better (aprox. 40%)
-- I can walk much further. When I started the maximum distance I managed to walk was 70 minutes at about 5km/h. Now I am able to walk for 120min at about 6km/h and feeling better afterwards.
-- When I started I was not able to run after 35min of walking. Now (I tried it today), I can run (not long and not that perfect) after 45 minutes even after 65 Minutes I could run even though I clearly felt a motoric handicap.
-- I used to feel a moderate fatique after longer walks or similar workout, that is nearly gone now.
-- Spacticity (which becomes evident after waking up or when I sit for a long (1 hour+) time) impoved noticeable - this might get worse again when it gets colder outside.
-- L'Hermittes signs in my feet improved, though I think it has been even better when I reported that impovement about a week ago.
-- Regarding the balance I'm not sure. I was doing pretty good during my holidays. I think I'm still a bit better when I'm trying to stand on one foot, but my walking balance might sill be the same as when I started with the ABX.
I printed up your entire thread and have been reading it all week. I was very excited to read this post and I want you to know that I think its a great thing you're doing keeping this record for everyone and folks like me. It's very much appreciated.
I hope your foot surgery goes flawlessly for you. It's good that your ABX won't be impacted.
I wanted to check with you to see how Tinidazole (2x 500mg per day) is different than Metronidazole (3x 400mg per day). Is one more effective than the other?
I also picked up that Roxithromycin (2x 150mg per day) is more tolerable than Minocycline or Azithromycin.
Do you know if there are substitutes for the Doxycycline too?
