I certainly did not mean to give the impression that I could not walk at all, even though I was well on the way. I could not get my right foot off the floor except sometimes an inch. I used a cane or a 4-wheel walker or to get to the barn, an adult tricycle. Now ten months ago I began David Wheldons antibiotic and supplement regimen. Quite suddenly a couple of months ago I noticed that I was no longer tripping over nothing and could turn around without 5 seconds of planning. I am back in the show ring with our dairy goats. I have been unable to do that for about three years and have missed it enormously. My MS fatigue is almost unnoticable except right now when I am in the midst of my sixth pulse of Flagyl.
I personally think the fatigue is from carrying such a load of "bugs" around. I remember as a child when first waking up from having some terrible illness and just the thought of lifting an arm or a leg was exhausting. That is EXACTLY what MY fatigue felt like. "Waking up" from this thing has been a revelation. So I do still use an electric cart if available for shopping but can walk to the barn, the drug store, etc. I really never expected to do that again.
2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
