Link with asthma and chronic infections

An old but interesting piece about the link between mycoplasma and chlamydia species and chronic asthma, and by inference other chronic chest infections.

Another reason for the need of the return of the General Physician, I would have thought.

Antibiotic Regimen

I've been on the regimen since January 05. So far, nothing really to report, although my leg spasticity has been getting progressively worse. Has anyone else noticed the same? It would seem that 1) this could be as a result of the regimen and is a passing phase 2) it is totally unrelated or 3) the antibiotics may be having a long-term adverse effect (I read on the BBD site that antibiotics can contribute to ...

Ignoring the Evidence

Well, it may not be a hefty scientific paper, but this arrived through our letter-box this morning.

"Hospital Doctor" is the British hospital doctors' coffee break reading matter, published weekly
and very widely read. David wrote this in an hour or so and I supplied the artwork!

Then we both forgot about it.

Now I have put it in the occasional essays section of my website
because the "Hospital Doctor" only has a certain amount ...

Calling all Minocycline Users

Minocycline has great promise as a therapeutic for MS (just search for it on our forums and you will unearth a mass of information explaining why). As it is a very straightforward therapy IF it works, there is a great deal of interest to see how those experimental souls willing to try it are faring.

Could all the people using minocycline please post their experiences in this thread? In the loose form of:

How long ...

The gen behing CPn

Hello,

What do you smart people think of this discovery? Something tells me that it is very important.
http://www.thisisms.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=210&mode=&order=0&thold=0

Hasn't CPn been implicated in these three diseases: cardiovascular disease, rheumatism, and multiple sclerosis. If so this would possibly explain why this bacteria can get a hold of our bodies. It would also support the antibiotics treatment, maybe followed by a long term statin treatment to avoid that the bacteria come back.

Let me know your ...

Long-term antibiotics do not cut heart attack risk

Thought this might be of tangential interest...

"Long-term antibiotic treatment designed to fight a common but stubborn bacterial infection does not reduce the risk of heart attack, according to two studies released on Wednesday.

Previous studies found that more than three-quarters of heart attack patients were infected with Chlamydia pneumonia, a bug present in the fatty plaques that clog arteries"

Do antibiotics preclude other treatments?

Thanks to information I've obtained from this site, and the exceptional contributions of Anecdote (Sarah) and others...I have just now started on an antibiotic regime, in fact, on my third day. My question is, I've started the antibiotics through assistance of my GP. I have an upcoming MRI and appointment scheduled with a neurologist at the MS clinic. If the neurologist recommends that based on the MRI I start on one of the CRABS, do ...
