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?

flagyl: do you have an answer?

I have started yesterday my 15th pulse. And today I feel flu like sympthoms and diarrea. The first couple of Flagyl pulses gave me a flu like reaction after 2 or 3 days. Then I had practically no reaction from other pulses or I felt better and more energetic then usual. I can not explain the present reaction and would like your advice. Could it be coincidencial? could it be that I was a couple of hours in the sun on a boat? (vit.D + metronidazole). I thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge. -------- Presently on mynocicline (100mg bidi) instead of doxyi (because doxy photosensitivity). I changed to myno 2 days ago. Zithro (250 mg every other day) NACi 2400 mg qdi + usual supplementsi. Metro pulse 500mg bidi

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.

3rd pulse and doing OK

Just finished my third Flagyl pulse and feeling OK. Only got up to 8 Flagyl tablets over 5 days before the nausea became a problem. The first pulse I only got up to 3 tablets, and the second pulse 5 tablets before I felt wiped out, so that seems like progress! I think the chitosan, chlorophyll and charcoal have helped.

 Also added an anti-inflammatory called Kaprex from Metagenics which has seemed to keep my sarcoidosis symptoms of sore throat, swollen glands and sore lungs at bay. Its ingredients are Rosemary, Hops and Olive. Has anyone else had any experience with it?



Pulse interruptions

I just need some help with this issue, since this seems to happen to me a lot:  If your pulse is interrupted by flareups, being flattened, etc., and you can't keep any pills down for a day, or two or more - do you just pick up that pulse again to finish it once you're better or just consider that pulse to be complete?  Or does it not really matter either way..



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.  

Very interesting! I'm not depressed, I'm actually really sick. Really.

I've just finished a seven-day course of Flagyli, and - after warnings from both the doctor and pharmacist to stay away from alcohol - Googled "Flagyl" and "alcohol" and came across this site. Didn't know ether was a virtual support group for chlamydia pneumoniae |(how do you explain that to the uninitiated? I've been asked "sexually transmitted, eh"?)

So this is rather exciting and quite interesting as well. My story is quite a bit like so many I've heard or read about.

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.  

Metronidazole(Flagyl) comparison to TInidazole(Tindamax)

 Chanced upon this older thread started in June2006  I am bumping it up; http://www.cpnhelp.org/flagylvstinidazole< for reference and the original thread in context.

I am extracting a post that is very interesting to me and my situation.  Hope that some others may find it an interesting read as well.  Louise



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.

Can bacterial cryptic form develop resistance to Flagyl?

Yesterday I took my first Flagyli 250 mg, no reaction. Today took 2 x 250 mg and started to wonder, is it possible to develop resistance to Flagyl if taken in small doses? I'll be increasing the dose in future pulses if tolerated. My dr wants me to take 500 mg x 2/day for 14 days a month eventually.


We, I've taken 2 1/2 days of 500 mg 2 x a day so far, 2nd pulse of Flagyl (last pulse was 1 1/2 days).  Feel really bad but I think I'll take one more tonight and quit for a few weeks (still take everything else).  I've been pushing myself to get out some, movie Fri nite, sang in the choir today.  I am exhausted but trying to live some.  I have something at church Mon, Tues, and Thurs night this week so pray for me!!!!!
