Dianna's CAP: GERD, Migraines and CPn -- Smooth muscle?
I'm reporting Dianna's results with the CAP. She started it for a variety of complaints, and because we live together she's probably carrying some load. Her Ig tests were mildly elevated.
Three of her complaints - mild rosacea, GERD, and migraines - have improved markedly since she started. The asthma seems unchanged, and her hypertension had disappeared before she started the CAP. At this point, she's done 3 weeks of Doxy, and 2 weeks of Azithromycin. She'll start Flagyl next week, if all goes well.
I hesitated to list the migraines; she didn't start the abx with any notion that the migraines would improve. Still, they have, and we can't think of any other changes that would account for the improvement.
It made me think about the diagrams and photos in The Potbelly Syndrome. CPn apparently loves to live in smooth muscle. I think these diseases may share a common cause -- the weakened, disorganized muscle cells can't close sphincters or reliably adjust the size of blood vessels.
Could rosacea, GERD, migraines (sometimes), and even CFS/ME be considered as "smooth muscle diseases"?
