heart issues


here is a link to our cardiac page. On that page we have a paper about thromobsis which is essentially blood clots caused by CPn.  here   Since we have some interest in the possible connections, I thought I'd remind people about this. Remember that CPn is very well studied int he cardiac field.  It is considered en emerging pathogen for atherosclerosis.



I thought I would move these posts to the main topic lest they get lost:

(If you click on the link, though, there are tons of interesting things to look at.)

Janice first:

Fo several years before I started the antibiotic protocol, I could see my abdominal artery pulsing through the skin.



Then me:

Yes Janice, and I could hear David's heart beating away at night in a hard and somewhat erratic way.  I didn't need to hold his neck to test his pulse, just listen.  It was way to fast for someone fast asleep.  About six years ago he had an operation which required a line in.  The blood clotted around it straight away.  When he eventually took it out himself, because there was no nurse available, a single, thick dark brown glob of blood came out.   Two years ago he started the abxii for CPn: he did register as having a slightly higher load than me.  Very quickly the heart became softer and regular, pulse dropped, blood pressure dropped.  Gradually, after that, the hardness in the vein softened and now it is as pliable as any other.  If he cuts himself, the blood is bright red and free flowing.  If I wake in the night, I don't worry about him......Sarah

Recently I noticed that I now bleed when I cut myself. Before I didn't. One time years ago I went in for blood work, and the nurse never got any blood out. Other times my blood would clot before they got the tube filled.

The last blood test since starting antibioticsi, the report came back that my blood was turbid.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.
