I have no inflammation and I am SICK and TIRED of being told autoimmunity is IT and that I am just screwed sorry, so sad, see ya'; you're just unlucky.
When I was dx'd my MRI's showed no inflammation in both the brain and the spine. The neuro explained all this to my husband and I - he said I had lesions (which were not active) and I had no inflammation. The neuro handed me a stack of videos and books on the different CRABS, told us to go home and read and then let him know which one I wanted to take. What I read in that boatload of information was the CRABS dealt with inflammation -----I didn't have inflammation, so why should I take them? Went back to the neuro and told him that I would not be taking any of the CRABS- I would figure something else out. So, I got on the Internet and found THISisMS - been here since 2003 - the wealth of information, the discussion (and yes, some knock down drag out fights) have been an invaluable tool. Your journey, along with others, as you went through the antibiotics regimen; jimmylegs with the supplements; Chris and Revimmune; gibblegook and the herbs; those that have tried the CRABS; Frank and his dear wife; I could go on an on.
I also have had trouble with the autoimmune theory - for me, it just never made sense. I understood the immune system was getting activated, but why? Now, I think we have an answer! I am hoping that when I get back from Stanford next week, I can go to my neuro and say, "I told you so". Don't get me wrong, I like my current neuro - he has even started to write positive articles about LDN for the Natl MS Society - that is quite a leap for him and he has probably had some negative feed back from the big pharma companies who pay him to speak.
Enough rambling on my part.....Thanks again for the heads up on notifying the GP - I will take care of that tomorrow.
Hope you are better today than you were yesterday.
