CAP and Gilenya?

Greetings,

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with being on both immunosuppresant MS medication and CAP, particularly in the first few months when improvements may not yet be apparent?

I have been on Gilenya (fingolimod) for about 15 months, but happened to start doxy for another issue and felt immediate improvement in my symptoms and disability. I believe that doxy is a strong immunomodulator, so it may be working alongside the Gilenya.

Still, ...

Antibiotics and hepatitis anyone?

Hello thisisms,
This is my first time posting. I have questions specifically about antibiotics below, but there is a long background in between if anyone wants to read it!

Two years ago I developed demyelination after a combined hep A/hep B vaccination.

My symptoms are quite atypical of MS - They all occurred initially within a couple of weeks after my vaccinations, and have been abating and recurring intermittently ever since.

Trepidation, antibiotics and - progress(?)

Trepidation. That's what I feel at the moment. My wife (L) just started ABX's last night, on the kind advice of Dr Wheldon and we don't know what's in store. So many questions - mainly rhetorical - why didn't I find this treatment earlier? Will it work? Where are the stories from people who didn't benefit from this treatment, just for the sake of balance? Did I source the best supplements? Have I organised timings ...

Help! trying to get my husband to start ABX.

Hi everyone,
My husband was diagnosed three years ago with RRMS. His MRI last week showed new lesions and he is having more symptoms, severe fatigue, foot drop, weak extremities, visual difficulties and falling frequently. I spoke with Dr. Stratton and had our neuro run the test for the CPn and his level was 1:128. He is reluctant to try the abx but I think it might help. Please I am desperate. We have two ...

(NAC) N Acetyl Cysteine please help if you know

I'm wondering if anyone here knows anything about this? (specifically about hypertension)

Here is a paper just published in Phlebology and Phlebology-Online by the Australian Phlebologist, Paul Thibault, who started off treating ccsvi for people with MS but then realised that There was more to MS since most people relapsed very quickly:

Starting ABX for PPMS

Hello everyone,
I have PPMS and live in NYC. My neuro and internist are supportive of me starting ABX treatment, but I can not find anyone who has prescribed the protocol before and who is comfortable with the stages and/or side effects.
First question- have you heard of a dr that treats in Manhattan or NYC?
I did get my CPN load checked by a blood test and Dr. Stratton said it was 'high', but ...
