Re: Good to hear from you

I had wondered how you were getting on. You sound like you are doing well. I'm glad. Since titers indicate immune response, you can actually have a rise in titers under treatment as bacterial dna is liberated and cytokine responses are triggered. It is a not uncommon response according to Chuck Str...

Re: My Adventures in MS and Welcome to Natgas

Just a quick update on me. I have been very busy and really haven't been logging on too much to the various sites that I used to frequent. I'm still on my antibiotic combo although I reduced the Zithro to 250mg MWF due to cost. Stratton and my doctor both said this dosage should work if taken for an...

The MRI results are great news! Congratulations. And that's without the Flagyl, right?

Re: can I check this comment?

What you're doing is fine!

I'm sure Sarah will chime in but I am sure I have read that Dr. Wheldon is in fact waiting for 3 or so months to introduce Flagyl these days.

Tim,

I just saw Dr. Powell a few weeks ago and he's my doctor. He's a great doctor and is very familiar with all the research, he can tailor a protocol to your needs.

Any questions do feel free to PM me.

Thanks Bromley for starting this thread, "Anti-biotics: Had Your Fill of Them?", and for your tact and diplomacy discussing it. I must say I've had my fill. To all--carry on and be well. Sharon Well this discussion appears to have ended, mostly, although Bromley had raised some interesting question...

Sarah, Congratulations! Undoubtedly there are subtypes of MS and bacterial is just one of them. Think of hepatitis- there is viral, toxic, auto-immune, etc. It sounds odd but those with bacterial MS may be the lucky ones as a very effective treatment appears to be available! (My personal belief is t...

Re: My Adventures in MS and Welcome to Natgas

While on vacation I had an appointment with as Ali G would say, My Main Man, Dr. Powell. I learned a bit more but the most important nugget is this. When you kill Cpn with antibiotics it releases even more endotoxin (hence the charcoal). Pangestyme can be taken but is expensive. So, there's an over-...

Justinian, You are obviously well-intended, but LifeontheIce is in fact a practicing medical doctor. I severely doubt it is news to her that metronidazole can cause neuropathy. She's relating a summary of our conversation which was basically founded on the fact that she initially felt like crud whil...

If I had sarcoidosis I might consider investigating the Marshall protocol further but for CPn I cannot imagine that it would be effective. Just a point of clarification: When I say, "struggling with climbing stairs", I mean I would get out of breath, or my legs would be wobbly, or it would feel like...

Re: Merck found guilty re: Vioxx

It will be interesting. I believe the critical difference will be, it is pretty obvious Merck knew of these problems, I don't believe anyone this is the case with Tysabri.

A couple of things. I am undiagnosed with a vague neurological condition, positive VEPs and CFS/Fibromyalgia-type features, followed closely by a MS specialist as someone with a 'clinically isolated syndrome with unremitting symptoms'. Last March (2004) I was struggling with walking up my stairs and...

If you look up any condition for which long-term antibiotics are prescribed but not univerally accepted by the medical community (disseminated Lyme, prostatitis, interstitial cystitis) you will see that many people report more than a 4 month wait before impressive results. If a person finds such a w...

Re: My Adventures in MS and Welcome to Natgas

Well, two weeks after my MRI was performed, my doctor finally sent me a note. He apparently didn't read the MRI himself but says the spondylosis, in his opinion, isn't clinically meaningful. If he's right (and I will be getting a 2nd opinion to ensure he is) then the most likely diagnosis for me is ...

Oh and let's just say some (or all) of my symptoms ARE due to cervical spondylosis instead of demyelination- which would be great news. It might be that my improvements are not some weird placebo effect... The plot thickens! http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/medicalnews.php?newsid=27375 Promise of Tet...
