Also getting better on antibiotic regime

Hi. This is my first post, although I've been listening in for a while.
I started taking minocycline in May 2004 after reading about the Metz & Yong study results in Canada. The minocycline resulted in some limited, but immediate improvements. When researching the reasons antibiotics had an effect I came across a link to David Wheldon's website about Chlamydia pneumoniae on thisisms.com.

I've been diagnosed with RRMS for over 20 years and had graduated ...

Antibiotic treatment

Dear all,

I started my anti-biotic regime just under two weeks ago. As Sarah suggests, its probably best to let some time pass before describing any changes. My changes to date have been mainly psychological - I feel better because I'm doing something. As I've mentioned before my neurologist (I live in the UK) told me there was nothing he could do until I had experienced a second attack. My 'thick' head has disappeared.

I ...

Keppra for stiffness?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has had experience of using Keppra (levetiracetam) for controlling stiffness. My Neuro has suggested I start using this to see if it will help with the stiffness problems I am having.
If you are using it what dosage are you taking?

Thanks,
Andy

Antegren implications

Dear all,

In a month's time we will hopfully know if Antegren has been given approval by the FDA. Let us assume that approval is given on the basis that it is more effective than the current CRAB drugs (why is it that the four CRAB drugs have the same effectiveness - I've seen estimates of 25-30% at reducing attacks - surely you would expect some variation?). I think it would be worth starting a ...

When is MS - MS?

Dear all,

A couple of questions:

When I was dx'd in May my neuro said that I had ms, he's reasoning - the MRI showed scarring in two areas of the CNS (brain and spinal cord). When I went back to see him four months later (as he had asked me to) he saw that I was distressed at the thought of having such a vile disease for the rest of my life, and said ...
