My answer is yes, but I am speaking only for me. Our pain is uniquely (really?) our own, but you obviously can barely bear it - but bear it you are. I had to outlast it and did. It took months and when it left a particular site, that place was much, much better. I am 67 years old and was becoming amazingly arthritic. It is now at least 95% gone, and on good days, ALL gone. This doesn't happen, according to experts.
2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
