Too late, I think I have given myself gout (a few times, very mildly) However, luckily, I just back off and it resolves itself in a few days. The weird thing is that even though I have been on this dose of Inosine for a number of years, it never happened until after i started taking the raltegravir.Scott1 wrote:Please don't get gout. I had it once and it's not just a sore toe. The whole body doesn't feel great. Maybe back it off a little. More is not always better. If you do get gout remember that Valacyclovir is a purine nucleotide analogue so if they give allopurinol you will be taking a purine and an antipurine. Hard to exert yourself when that battle is happening.
I virtually always take the stairs if its an option! I don't feel it anywhere specifically, just generally in all my legs. The more the flights, and I start to lift my right leg less and risk kicking the next step and tripping if I don't pay extra attention.Scott1 wrote:What happens if I said climb a couple of flights of actual stairs? Where would you feel it?
Not too sure, I think its generally normal, except my right leg is worse, so I tend to not lift it high enough, or if I am tired, drag/kick my right toe on the ground. As it gets worse, it almost feels like its a controlled falling forwards.Scott1 wrote:Is your gait normal or do you lift one hip and move your leg in an arc?
Havent tried, I'll give it a go later and let you know. I do know that historically, my babinski reflex has come and gone.Scott1 wrote:If you lie on your back and pull one leg back so the knee is above the hip and the lower part of the leg make the leg into a L shape which way do your toes want to point then?
EDIT: just got off exercise 30min ago, but when I try it, my toes don't appear to be going anywhere. ie the toes simply follow the angle of my foot.
People who use ABX's for MS address your points. There is a specific forum on TIMS regarding it, and it has been developed by a microbiologist and a university research team.Scott1 wrote:It's interesting what you said about ABX. A lot of bacteria have pumps built into their walls, particularly the ones with thicker peptidoglycan layers. When an antibiotic attacks them, they sort of shut down and go into hibernation and devote all their energy to pumping the antibiotic out. When the antibiotic ceases they resume normal activity virtually unscathed. This is how resistance has developed. While you are on the antibiotic you think there's an improvement and as soon as you cease using it the bacteria hit back hard. You may have experienced that problem or you may have had a herximer response. In either case the course may not have done its job.
I understand you were asking whats specifically in the capsules, but there is non specified, which is why I told you what I took them with. My brand uses bioperine to boost their absorption. And I take the fish oil with them myself.Scott1 wrote:On the Q10, I was thinking about what sort of oil the gel capsule has in it rather than what oil you take along with it.
When you factor in how many I take, the cost probably works out the same. I may give your brand a go, but I would not expect any difference, so am in no rush. I have used other brands historically.Scott1 wrote:You do take a lot of the brand you use. It would be interesting to see if the type I take makes a difference. They cost more but you wouldn't take a dose as high.
