Hyperthyroid Driving Cpn Conversion?

Submitted by raven on Wed, 2010-09-15 23:53

I had to start a Tini pulse a little ahead of schedule. It seems that some of my old areas of concern are flaring up again. Some stiffness in the muscles around the side of the head and an area around my left ankle stiff and sore. Muscle cramping.

What I am wondering is if this bout of hyperthyroidism has awakened cryptic Cpn in those areas and triggered conversion from cryptic to replicating bodies. It would seem logical that turning up the metabolic heat would do this.Perhaps this is an ideal time to take action and hammer it down.

I am going back to closer spaced pulses (9 days apart instead of 2 weeks). There is no way I could take Tini continously--I would just feel too yucky.

Also made a skin cream with flagyl in it. Ground up 250mg 1/2 tab in the mortar and pestle with some skin cream and applied to the affected areas on my leg.


All interesting, Raven, and you are keeping the heat on.  Sometimes I suspect that people make excuses for not doing flagyl or tini because it is so brutal.  But that is how we get from here to there.  With rewards waaay down the road and flagyl responses upon us, it is easy to see why we could duck.  Obviously, you are not a believer in "ducking"!
