Interruption of ABX – Waiting for Biopsies

Sunday night I went to the emergency room with severe abdominal pain (upper/lower left quadrant, front and back – [as an aside, I have experienced pain on my left side since almost the beginning of my ABXi in April of last year –2007].  I kept contributing the discomfort to possibly die off and/or my spleen.  My dr. could never find anything on x-rays or a cat scan, so I just kept plodding along, as it was not intolerable.

FMS symptoms, besides pain meds??

Good afternoon!

I've been having fibromyalgiai symptoms for the past 4 days- neck, left shoulder, back of head, band across my head from 1 temple to the other, down my spinal cord. I haven't dealt with fibro symptoms in several years and I can't remember what I can do to relieve my pain and stiffness.

I've been taking Lortab (Hydrocodone with acetaminophen) and/or Ultracet, aspirin, using a topical analgesic oil rub and a moist heat wrap. I'm also stretching. I've considered the chiropractor and massage therapist just haven't made appointments yet.


Ive heard it all !! Here we go again , Just switched doctors because the last one was a complete moron. I was hoping this one was a bit more on the ball as to what is happening all around us ! wrong! I was advised that there is nothing wrong with me and that getting better with this treatment is all in my head . He can not support what I am doing and is willing to treat me for physcological problems if I wish. Holy shit ! Its all in my head! No doctors have had an explenation for why my heart was going all out of wack or what is causing the dizzy spells or the vision problems ,or the spactisity or for that matter why my whole family is sick with chronic coughs ,sinus infectionsi , spastic jerking, and so on!

CPN in Synovial Fluid????

Over the past 3 days my walking has gotten progressively worse.  My right knee is so swollen and painful I can't bend or move it. When I walk I try to "make up" for my peg leg with my good leg... now my left leg is starting to give me pain.  I had a dr. appt and he seems to think it's bursitis.  My FM symptoms are also worsening... again this all started with the addition of Azith.  Katman, I know you said you had extreme joint pain/problems..... anyone else?


I am Hilly and have been suffering from Lyme Disease and other tick related diseasesi for some time.  I also have Morgellons, and feel I probably have chlamydia pneumonia although it has'nt been diagnosed as such.  

pulse 10

I finished pulse 10 on wed. 4 x 500 1x 1000. yes that's right folks you read it right 1000. The usual pattern .....disrupted sleep,depression (milder) ,anxiety (also milder). It fools me while I am taking it that I am handling it., ugh the week after. This time I am having pretty good chills and pain in my calve muscles. I hope it ends like it has the last 3 times at 6 days and improvements follow. On a side note my saliva is better not normal yet but much more comfortable.

Question -Actos

 Hello everyone,

  Well im 5 weeks into doxycycline now 300 mg day. The first few weeks I was like good, Im doing good, not getting sick. Then POW! Started with a bit of weakness and then went full blown to bit of everything. Havent left bed much in 2 weeks.

 Saw doc today, he gave me actos. Ive read about these meds for the anti inflammatory deal, so I know its used and why. But it is a blood sugar regulator as well. I wouldnt take it but I really need to not be so weak/sick.

 My ears even hurt.... Like I have ear infection. I havent had ear problems since I was a kid.

 Curious if actos worked for any of you.

minocyline instead of another abx?

I am on the wheldon protocol for MSi, and keep reading of the abxi minocycline. I was wondering if it could be used instead of the doxyi or roxyi? or if it could be added to the regimine? I would prefer to replace an existing medication over adding, just to cut down on pills i have to swallow. Im starting to gag.

charcol has worked wonders.

I have been doing very very well recently, still on my antifungals Lamisil and Fungizone, these 2 have made a very significant impact on my health. I added the charcol about 1 month ago and at the time I enjoyed yet another lift. Colon has been working really well nowdays, and has gone from being constantly constipated and full of gas to working almost normally. I still am sensitive to its movements, but in general it is a very pleasent improvement.

I am still lacking a little energy and sleep could I think be deeper, but everything is continuing to improve so I hope to see some more benefits yet.

One of my major symptoms being panic attacks is pretty much done with, but does depeand still on the colon.

I can't reccomend highly enough these antifungals.

I really suspect that many others who are doing abxi would benefit also from antifungals.

Advair for lungs..

Will taking this interfere with my treatment..?  My lungs get so tight and congested from the bacteria.  When I cough up phlem my syptoms are sometimes non existent.  Doc also wants me to take oregano oil caps for this.


Question for Jim K

Hi Jim, you mentioned somewhere that you were taking a small amount of Benicar as an anti-inflammatory, I think you said 10mg. Could I ask you .......did you ever take bigger doses and in what way do you think the drug is helping?

 My doctor is considering using an ARB as an adjunct to the Wheldon protocol abxi as I am having great difficulty in staying on this treatment.

Thank you. Elinor
