I posted this question in hopes that everyone on abx would say "yes I'm better" and there would be, for me, an absolute answer. It didn't happen that way. I keep coming back to .... a gene predisposes us, and then some missing info, then a virus or bacteria takes hold. Various ones. So what works for one, then, will not work for all. It seems to me that abx treatment has worked for many. You very well could be one of them.
And, Viper, it IS all about you. And it is all about me. And the next guy and the next. Every time someone tries something, every time someone gets better, or worse, or thinks they've figured something out, or gives up on an idea, or gets a new idea, it IS all about them, and it send waves through this community. I didn't realize that with my "progressive" disease I would enter a world of "progressive" learning, but here we are. ( I babble)
Keep doing what you're doing.
