Unassisted Stomach Exercise

Well this is weird. I've been happily sailing along on the Wheldon Protocol. No major issues for a year. I got the nausea to start off with but found ways round that. Got the sun issues from the Doxyi, don't know whether that's now in the past as we've not had much in the way of sun.

However, with this latest pulse I'm suddenly getting stomach spasms. It only happens at night and only if I'm lying on my right hand side. If I roll onto my left side it stops. It's exactly like having one of those electric exercise machines on that cause your muscles to contract.

I don't get them during the day at all, possibly because I don't lay on my right side in the normal run of things, it's a bit difficult to work like that.

Flagyl interactions with tetracyclines?

Below is a small paragraph from Lyme disease dxi/tx guidelines of Dr. Burrascano that struck me as I was reading, anyone heard of Flagyli/tetracycline interactions?

Wanted to get this in before vacation

Well, pulse #19 was so mild that I wanted to get the next one in before starting vacation.  Pulse #20 was completed on 3/12/2009.  I'll be really surprised if the post-pulse reaction sends me to the emergency room in Hot Springs.

I think they may have been right

I recall reading an observation that when people on the CAPi start to feel better, they seem to blog less often.  I guess there must be something to that because I forgot to log on and blog when I completed pulse #19.

The aftermath was not entirely reaction-free as I did have some shortness of breath on the 4th, but more charcoal banished it in short order.  

Eeeek is it really that long!

How embarassed am I? I just realised how long it's been since I was on here. Yikes.

I've been feeling so well and I've been so busy that time has just flown by, or is that the brain fog getting worse?

Well updates I suppose. One year on from diagnosis and I haven't had any relapses. I thought I was having one at Christmas but it turned out to be some ghastly virus as the OH got it as well.

Intermittant Protocol

Intermittant Thereapy~~~ There recently have been quite a few who have gone to intermittant therapy (hurray!).  I know in recent discussions comments are made "to refer back to their individual posts" to see what that consists of.  It is difficult sometimes to query this site for such specific information re each member.

Completed pulse #18 tonight. 

My wife is listening to a recording of "Jerusalem" on Youtube.  The music makes typing this whole thing sound more auspicious than it is.

CAP, step three: doubling Doxycycline

I've been on Azithromycin 250 mg M-W-F for two weeks now, and  die-off symptoms (or what I've been experiencing, anyway) have been progressively decreasing (not so strong as before, not everyday). Hence, I'm considering of doubling Doxycycline, starting next week: am I pushing too much?

Chronicles of a Rifampinaut: 29 and 30 down, 31 coming

It's been  while since I've posted or really spent much time here.  I don't know why exactly, just have had other things occupying my mind and time.  Even so, I thought I would post how things have gone these last 2 or 3 months, or some short blurb about it.

Both pulse 29 and 30 went better then earlier pulses.  I suspect the reasons are because I started using a gel capi to enclose the dose of Flagyli and I've been becoming aclimated to the greater dosage amount then I had been last summer.  And of course, each pulse knocks the CB load down more so there's always that.

First CAP anniversar, progress report and thoughts...

It's hard to believe but I am on 13th month of CAPi treatment. I started on January 02, 2008, twicked my protocol a little for a couple of months. Since March'08 I settled on Doxyi 200 mg/day and Rifampin 600 mg/day. In Nov'08 Bactrim was added twice a day. 2 weeks ago I switched from Doxy to Minocycline. So, right now I am on Mino + Rif + Bactrim.

Switched from Mino - My Doxy Diary

 My Doxyi Diary: 1.17-2.20.09 (I had been on minocycline since Sept. It had caused extremely painful wrists, fingers, shoulders and knees. I needed to see if Doxy would be more tolerable. It appears so far that it is the case for me. I also take Azith M-W-F. Last entry at top going downward to first entry.)

Drying out

I must be drying out from the "intoxication" of the bacterial detritus because I can't come up with a snappy subject line any longer.  I guess this forum may have just lost a promising contender for the Bulwer-Lytton contest. 

Anyway, I just downed the metronidazolei to mark the completion of pulse #17.

 

 

 

 

Backsliding...

I am in a quandry.  I am concerned I may be developing a resistance to doxyi and/or azith, is that possible? Or could it just be time for me to mix it up?

 I am again very ill with severe bronchitis and/or cpni pneumoniae symptoms.  I am almost physically at the point I was in March of 2007 when I was first diagnosed (bed ridden, chest pain, deep bronchial coughing, very weak)  This is about the 3rd episode over the last 6 months (2nd within the past 2 months!)

In all honesty my improvements over the past year haven't been significant, other than a reduction in brain fog and a reduction in my FM symptoms.  As each month passes I keep adding to the mix..... I KNOW that is part of this process -- it just becomes more obvious how infected I must be.
