Please can you help me with neuro appointment.

I can't believe it's been 3 months (I'm tacking this on tonight 12/5/07) and we're on the eve of the day Kim will get her very first script for abx. It's been a long road; just getting to the starting line.

If you're interested in maybe understanding more about abx and you don't know where to start, begin here. You might also want to see

I think that we need to seperate ms and lyme. Antibiotics can not work on ms other than their antiimflamatory affects but with lyme they can actually kill it stopping it from more damage. Their must be a small precentage of the 2.5 million people diagnosed with ms that actually have lyme or some other parasite that left unchallenged will do nervous system damage. It seems the only way to get rid of any doubt ...

Small EPO trial

EPO is being trialled for neuro-protection. This small study shows promise.

Exploring recombinant human erythropoietin in chronic progressive multiple sclerosis 30 August 2007

The neurodegenerative aspects of chronic progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) have received increasing attention in recent years, since anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive treatment strategies have largely failed. However, successful neuroprotection and/or neuroregeneration in MS have not been demonstrated yet. Encouraged by the multifaceted neuroprotective effects of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) in experimental models, ...

About Detrol...

My friend was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis last year. The doctor recommended that we send her to a specialist to have her bladder “ballooned”. Her mother said “no way” and started looking on the Internet for alternative treatments. After taking Detrol she is able to sleep through the night and she is back to leading a normal life.
This is just to make people realise that only a Doctor’s diagnosis is not enough, you must ...

Stopping minocyclin (maybe temporarily?)

I don't know whether to be disappointed or not-I had a follow-up visit with my neuro who prescribed minocycline for me last month. He wants me to finish what I have then stop and see how I feel. I am to continue with the other supplements he gave me, including NAC. He said he has several patients on minocycline long term so we can go back to it later if we want. But it doesn't ...
