Dahlia - I, too, am an early diagnosis and a zero on the EDSS scale. I was terrified on 19 AUg 2005, the day I was diagnosed, and I spent nearly two weeks reading on the net non-stop. I came to the conclusion I did not believe in the autoimmune theory, which meant it had to be some kind of disease. Then I found a reference on ThisIsMS regarding an experimental drug for MS that was really antibiotic-based. That leads to a google search for "antibiotics MS". I found Sarah Longlands and Dr. David Wheldon. She posts here on ThisIsMS under the name 'Anecdote' because doctors keep telling her her cure is purely 'anecdotal'. There are dozens of us doing antibiotic therapy and I have not yet seen one person who is not having results, be they simply okay all the way to outstanding. I have been doing it for five months (today is the 5mo anniversary, actually) and what I know is I have not experienced any progress of the MS and most of my bizarre symptoms have vanished. Numb fingers and toes are gone, draggy feet, useless shins, slight slur in my speech, gone. And the brain fog, where your thought processes just bog down.... gone. Come check us out. We have a bunch of medical professionals not only contributing to the site, but also as patients. I'm no zealot in most areas of my life, but I really believe we've hit on the answer here. And it's not a bunch of wishful thinking; this was started - and continues - due to the work of a group of amazing doctors at Vanderbilt University. We don't post much here anymore, since we have all the resources we need at CPn Help.org - - - medical studies, referral information, support forums, you name it. I promise you it's not pie-in-the-sky.
