Who out there is functional? (Non-Ms'ers)

For the benefit of perspective......I am curious.  We get varied responses on physical reactions to pulses, ABXi, etc.; BUT,  in the big picture, how many of you ( on a day-to-day basis), are still functioning below normal.... or non-functional?   How many are unable to work, drive, take care of the home, cook, etc.?

Some of you speak of your pulses taking you down, but yet have the physical capabilities of going to the gym, carrying out day-to-day activities and working.  (Which, by the way, is fantastic)  This query is in no way meant as an offense to anyone.  

 Since I am unable to do a poll, is anyone willing to share?

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.

IV Treatment for CPn?

Does anyone have any thoughts or knowledge of treating CPni with IV Ceftriaxone? I have been diagnosed with Late Lyme Borreliosis, and CPn.

 I have neurological complications, (radiculopathies,limb buring sensations with exertion, fasicualations, etc), that are my main symptoms. I am housebound, and can't walk more than 50 m max.

These symptoms are being assigned at least in part to the Late Lyme diagnosis.

Consequently, I am told that the treatment I need for the Late Lyme is IV treatment ceftriaxone for 1-2 months.

Does anyone know if ceftriaxone works well against Cpn?

 Regards Dar

Antibiotics and antimicrobials; tablets vs capsules when available and generic vs brand names

My question primarily is from a user perspective, regarding the cost/vs side effects  of purchasing brand name capsules vs tablet forms when there is a choice. 

Cost seems to often be in favor of the tablet form. 

For those with no stomach distress with the capsules, seems either might be fine. 

For those with stomach respsonse to the capsules (such as myself) I have now realized that I do have a choice of the tablet form,

as well as a higher priced choice of another brand name Doryx that is reported to have less stomach response symptoms. Reported to be newer and more costly than either the tablet generic or the capsule generic.

Help I am so confused

I am still trying to get a grasp on Chlamydia Pneumoniae, I just found out on 4-11-07.  But I have been sick for awhile  Cry.  I am just starting Antibioticsi again......eeeeek Foot in mouth.  My symptoms have been sinus infectionsi and uppper respitory infections , Phlaringitis, Broncotitis, Asthmai.  In and out of the Dr. office the month of April, and my throat swelled shut I could go on and on.  I ended up at an Infetious disease Dr.

Update on Treatment

Well, I have been on AP (doxyi) for almost a month. Have definitely been herxing, mostly in my hands, which makes sense, since that is where my disease has been the longest (Raynaud's for 25 yrs). Strange, because my hands have never been really painful, just extremely sensitive to the cold. Now I feel like I have RA in them, they start hurting during the night, waking me up, and are so bad in the mornings that I can't lift, twist or turn anything. But I think they have been better the last 3 days, so maybe I am over the hump.

Fighting the SPMS beast

Hi folks, I'm new here, having found this place from There, I learned about C. Pneumonia, and it really hit home. See, most every year since I was 10, I've had walking pnuemonia, hacking, wheezing, feverish, achy, the whole nine yards, even as recently as two years ago. Seemed a likely culprit to me. So, I've been taking the following: doxycycline 100mg 2x/day roxithromycin 150mg 2x/day flagyli 400mg 2x/day simvastatin 80mg 1x/day I've been getting better, slowly but still, that's better than I had been. I have a looooooooooooong way to go.

Notes on NO and CPni: I had been doing massive doses of Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, trying to prevent exacerbations. It worked, sort of. I didn't have what I knew as an exacerbation for about a year ... but I did continue losing ability, at a faster rate than before.

Earlier Version of the Vanderbilt Protocol: Stratton, et al.

Please note: this is an earlier version of the Vanderbilt protocol developed by Dr. Stratton and his colleagues. It is here because it contains useful treatment info for reference. Please see Dr. Stratton's current protocol in the Cpn Handbbook. <


Vanderbilt University has some of the world's experts on Cpn, and has been testing antibiotic treatment especially with MSi. The Mitchell/Stratton, et al patent has highly detailed information about the testing and treatment they have developed, and can be found at this link<.
