After 10 months on the Stratton version of the protocol there are definitely signs of improvement, sadly my prescribing physician (rheumatologist) has retired and moved out of state so I need to find a replacement.
Ok Feeling very strange today to say the least
Been taking all the supplements I could easily find for a couple of weeks now in Prep for starting abx.
I was taking 2mg (Swanson) B12 Sublinguals a day without any side effect.
Well since starting the NAC I have been having a lot of lower back pain in the night and read on someones blog that taking the B12 helps with that, so I had a couple more B12's early last night (for a total of 4mg for the day) to see if it helped me sleep.
I had Some very Good news today.
As I failed to respond well to other treatments for my uSpA, I just spoke with my US Doctor and he is willing to support me on ABx. Yeaa !! I am so excited
However his experience with ABx was obtained doing a study under Dr JD Carter at USF with a very simple protocol of doxycycline 100 mg twice daily and rifampin 600 mg daily for 9 months.
Great for a for a short study but as a long term treatment protocol I'm not so sure??
Ok My first Blog post so here goes.
I went & ordered some of the recommended supplements (at least the ones that were reasonably priced here in the UK) & started taking them a couple of weeks ago along with the NAC in preperation for starting Antibiotics.
