Need help for my sister. Why CPn test POS and then NEG?

I've written about my sister before.  She asked to be tested for CPni at Cleveland clinic and came back positive, something like 1/125 or close to that.  Cleveland Clinic asked her if she wanted to be treated with 1 abxi for a few weeks. 

She has lung and sinus problemsi, fibromyalgiai, fatigue and serious heart and vein problems and inflammationi.  Basically the falling apart syndrome.  I tried to get her started on CAPi, but she didn't follow through, claiming she didn't have time to get sick.  She did take NACi for awhile.  Now she is really sick, with pretty bad heart problems.  She has been diagnosed with everything under the sun over the years, but then they always end up changing their minds and saying it probably isn't what they thought it was.

Does Oklahoma City even have Emergency Rooms?

You wouldn't know it by me. 

Three days post-pulse #13 and only mild reactions (mostly slight shortness of breath during stressful parts of the negotiations and the familiar "cog fog") so far.  

By the way, Oklahoma City is a real nice city.  The Murrah Building Memorial affected me more than I thought it would.  I think it was the small chairs that represented the children killed in the day care center that made it so emotional.

Lightly Hammered

Thirteenth pulse of metronidazolei (1,500 mg/day) plus Isoniazid (300 mg/day) completed today.  Since about pulse seven I've felt "energized" during the pulse and have had little post-pulse reaction.  This pulse was different with reaction (lethargy, confusion, pain in various areas) starting two days into the pulse.  I'll keep you posted on the post-pulse reaction.

Cautiously conceding I may have been right...

When I was in surveying class, the instructor described the process that one should follow as: "We complete the field work, take our measurements, do the computations and then try everything we can think of to prove ourselves WRONG.  Failing that, we cautiously concede we may be right."

I don't know that I've done everything to prove myself wrong, but I'm going to cautiously concede that the decison to add the amoxicillini was right. 

Following my own advice - sort of

I have blogged several times suggesting that people (like me) who are doing the CAPi on their own stick religiously to one of the protocolsi until they had enough experience with it to know how they were going to react and thus have a "baseline" for comparison with any changes that they make. 

I have followed this advice for a year through 12 flagyli pulses.  Having lamented about the fact that I was not getting the kind of reaction to the later pulses that I got to the earlier ones, I decided to make a change.  Knowing the NACi and Amoxicillini had the same effect on CPni Elementary Bodies, but that Amoxicillin was also effective against other pathogens that might be co-infectionsi, I decided to add Amoxicillin to my antibioticsi.  

Nothing Fancy This Time

Pulse Number 12 completed on August 28, 2008 and I didn't get a chance to find out what any of the Emergency Rooms looked like.  I'll report more on the die-off aftermath when and if there is anything to report, but so far it has been unremarkable.


With Apologies to Willie Nelson

On the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again

The life I love is doin' Flagyli in strange towns

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

Pulse #12 beckons.  In Houston this time. 


Antibiotics to be available without prescription

This is the news:  In England, possible antibioticsi to be sold over the counter, to treat CHLAMYDIA!

This is the story form<

Oral antibiotics are to be made available for the first time without doctor's prescription under guidelines approved yesterday by the medicines regulator.

A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.

If you think its monotonous to read this....

Pulse #11 completed August 1, 2008. 

Where's the excitement in that?

Well, it's time to start pulse #11.  Unlike the last few pulses, I'm not going to be on the road while I do this one.  The tension of being out of town and wondering if I was going to have a reaction that would leave me spending the night in a hospital emergency room just added to the "excitement" of each trip.  Being home for a pulse may make the week anticlimactic.  I'll let you know if anything interesting happens.

I'm unrepentant

Well, first the good news.  I didn't get to find out what the Emergency Rooms looked like in Arkansas.

The better (or worse, depending on how you look at it) news is that after next to no reaction to my last few pulses, I am having significant side effects this time:

I guess I'll get a failing grade in "Planning & Scheduling"

Well, it's time for pulse #10.  I'm also scheduled to leave on a trip tomorrow.  I thought about postponing the pulse out of fear of resuming my old bad habit of "touring the nation's emergency rooms", but for the last several pulses I have actually felt best during the pulse, so I decided I would go ahead.  If it turns out to be a bad decision, I will let you know what the Emergency Rooms look like in Hot Springs, Little Rock, Searcy and/or Salem, Arkansas. 

Also, I went ahead and added atherosclerosis to the index terms since I've also got it although I'm doing this for the M.S.

Anthony Azenabor: CPn "rigidizes" macrophages, subverts anti-bacterial action

This scientist is specializing in the Chlamydiae, so he's going on my 'watch list.' Here is a popularized treatment of his publications<, and I will look for the original papers.

This is going to be a molecule-by-molecule fight, evidently.
