It could have been either, though I tend to think it was the fluid: if I become at all dehydrated, I get a monstrous headache :(

Cipro

Postby gwa » Wed Sep 19, 2007 9:08 am

Cipro causes the gamma interferon level to rise, which is a bad thing with MS. Any of the floxins cause this rise. I do not take any of this class of meds.

Also, Cipro can cause tendons to snap even after discontinuing its use for more than 6 months.

There was a lot of info about Cipro a few years ago during the anthrax scare when so many people got prescriptions of it to take as a preventive measure. It has some scary side effects.

IFN-Gamma, hummm.

this has popped up in my reading, working on understanding the chronology (see coffee/milkshake post) of how CPn stops myelin loss. Do you happen to know where I can read what the IFN-Gamma actually does? Meaning, does the gene/cytokine directly effect Myelin? or does it communicate with something else that effects the myelin? I'm also wondering about TNF in this way. I'm still putting this together so I can report back what I have come up with this weekend. ciao, Ken

Ken,

bromley has posted some very good charts about the workings in the brain and the interferons that would explain things very well for you.

I can't remember which post it is on, so PM bromley and I am sure he will direct you.
