Mercury Poisoning Update

Submitted by macorn on Fri, 2009-12-11 18:42

I suspect I may have mercury poisoning and am going to GP next week to discuss testing. The more I read on the internet makes me think this may be true and maybe this is why I have not experienced any success with CAP.  In fact I have gotten quite worse since I started.  I have gotten the impression that this is another condition that doctors dismiss.  Sound familiar???   I've also read that many of the diseases being treated on the CAP can also be caused by mercury poisoning such as MS, which I have.  I had all my amalgums (mercury-filled dental fillings) replaced with porceleon.  I can't remember if this was before or after MS diagnosis; but my gums were turning gray which is a sign that the mercury was seeping from the fillings.

Confused on supplement schedule

In a recent post from LouLou she mentioned taking her abx and then her supplements two hours later.  That's NOT how I do it!!!  In AM I take abx with coffee, in about an hour I have my breakfast and take supps.  OR I may take them all together.  In the 4:00PM, I do the same thing; abx all together or maybe separated by about an hour (without food).  I have dinner around 6:00PM. I thought this as OK; at last that's how I understood it.  I just reviewed the handbook and didn't read that the two-hour separation between abx and supplements was required.  BTW, I do take the calcium and magnesium alone before bed.  Since changing from Flagh to Tini, I have no problem taking abx or supplements

"Signature"??

How do I make changes to my 'signature'?  I've done this before many times.  My signature block is blank when I'm in the 'edit' mode.  I hope the answer isn't that I have to retype it completely.  Does my question make sense?  I had posted weeks ago that I had quit the CAP.  Well, I didn't; got scared!  Thanks for help.Smile 

QUIT THE CAP!

At my last appointment with my neurologist on Monday, he would NOT give me a perscription for RIFAMCIN.  I have gotten so much worse since I've been on the CAP.  I can still get around the house using my rollator, but not as easliy.  The only outside-the-house activity the last 6 months has been going to the dr.  A friend goes with me and "we" use a wheelchair. 

I have never been able to identify with any of the reactions to abx problems of others on the CAP; it was as though the abx were sugar pills.  I have just progresed with my symptoms of MS. 

So I stopped the CAP.   I was such a believer, but as I guess 'no more' for me.

Rifampin -- what strength? HELP!

I could not find (in the protocal section) of the handbook, anything about Rifampin.  However, I did see a mention of it in D.Wheldon section.  I am going to neurologist Monday a.m. so I need it ASA.  How much and how often info needed please.  It is talked about quite aften and I thought it would be easy to find.  Thanks.

Is this a reaction?

My body is so sore???  It seems (to me) that it has been such a long time of 'poping pills' without results.   However, maybe I have had some; I seriously do not know.  I have been a little sore in my shoulder/neck area for about a year; 
I would only notice it when my big brother would give me a big hug (which he doesn't do anymore since I yelped at his big squeeze).  I changed from Flagyl to Tinidazole at my last pulse, which concluded three days ago.  The last few days I have been EXCEEDINGLY sore in this area.  I never thought this could be a reaction until this mornng, thus this blog.  Oh, I occasionlly get sore-to-the-touch on my skull; this has been going on a long time, I don't remember how long.  Would like input on this.
