Flagyl pulse, Day 10 - Antibiotic Protocol Day 886

A few nagging symptoms. A vague feeling of plateau. A general dissatisfaction. All were creeping up the last couple of months and I realized I'd not done a flagyli pulse since Christmas week. My doctor understood and okayed my latest adventure.

Quality of Life Post

Hi, I don't want to mislead anyone. A patient told me about this site and I am not here to plug my office, a treatment or ask for money but I would like to ask the MS community for some input and a few minutes of your time. I do not want to intrude on your community so I thought I would ask before posting anything further. There are many people in the world who ...
