Imoxicillin ? Lyme Test? Yeast Test?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Imoxicillin ? Lyme Test? Yeast Test?

Postby savagek » Sun Sep 02, 2007 7:43 pm

Been diagnosed with MS by my Neurologist. Also, seeing Lyme Literate doctor to rule out Lyme disease. Lyme Literate doctor put me on Imoxicillin 500 mg which I take 2 pills twice a day for 30 days due to a bad sinus infection, only been on for 7 days. I will get the results of my Lyme test Sept 10.

Should I see inmprovements of my symptoms during this period on Imoxicillin if I have Lyme disease
and or MS?

What should I expect with the results of a Lyme test. Is this yes or no or something more confusing?

Has anyone else diagnosed with MS had Lyme Disease ruled out being from an endemic Lyme area? as I really cannot see how someone could not want to rule this out, and at this point I am in that very position.

Also, Lyme Literate Doctor requested Yeast test test.

Anyone had a Yeast test and Why?
What does this tell?

Thanks,

Rob

Sorry Rob, I've only just seen this. You might well see improvements of your symptoms whilst on amoxicillin whether you have lyme disease or MS: it depends what the visible symptoms are. You might also feel somewhat worse as well, at least for a week or so. What are your symptoms, and how do you feel now?

The diagnostic criteria for LD is EXACTLY the same as for MS--clinical. There is no definitive test for LD in spite of what doctors may tell you.

My daughter started the LD treatment when she was first diagnosed with MS (because she had SO MANY non-MS symptoms that were typical LD symptoms.) She actually did really well then stopped and went totally "MS".

As I have shared on this forum, she participated in an alternative treatment (still does) and is doing very well.

You need to educate yourself about the Herxheimer reaction so you will be prepared and understand what it is. If you do in fact have a bacterial infection, you should experience this. Your LD doc may have already explained it.

I wish you the BEST of luck on your journey...

No matter what I think about colloidal silver, that is a good explanation of a herxheimer reaction. You have to remember that not getting one doesn't mean it isn't working.

Stupid farm boy indeed! :roll:
