I have been diagnosed with a chronic bacterial infection
So I'm new here, just wanted to post this and see what you all think.
I was diagnosed with M.E/CFSi around 3 years ago, so I was just 17. Now 20 years old I had my blood sent off to Dr. AW. He confirmed an infection of
"Borrelia - like spirochaetal forms". Also;
"Bacterial forms i.e. Chlamydia Pneumoniae-like forms/Micro-cocci forms/small-form bacteria (all treated by the Chlamydia Pneumoniae protocol)".
He has reccomended Samento for three months then we are going to have another look at my blood I think. Although, I am sort of delaying the Samento as I want to know just how much of my symptoms are down to Candida. I am in constant contact with Dr. SM for other health issues, so I think I may need some drug intervention for Candida. I have always struggled with it and don't want to load myself up with antibiotics yet, hence the Samento, abxi will probably screw my gut flora up again! Dr. AW also advised not to take vitamin Di as it has implications with chronic illness. The video he reffered me to is here; http://www.vimeo.com/2585394
In the phone consultation Dr. AW we briefly discussed my treatment of moderately sever acne with antibiotics approx three years ago. This was no prescribed my Dr. AW but my own GP.
It may be clear to me now that what I thought was my very violent and quick decent into M.E after taking antibiotics three years ago, was actualy massive die off symtpoms. It took me almost a year to get back to feeling a little bit 'normal', but I have never felt well since. I was on a high dosage of tetracycline, I think almost 500mg-750mg, daily for around 10-12 months.
I recently had a phone consultation with Dr. SM (Dr. SM is now my main doctor, Dr. AW is the doctor I go to for the issues I'm discssuing above) and her next step of treatment is revolving around chemical sensitivity, as I have a problem with perfumes/cleaning products etc.
As far as prescription drugs go, I have been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue by Dr. SM, I am currently taking Prednisolone (1mg) daily. Also I have poor pancreatic enzyme secretion and maldigestion of fats, so I am also taking Creon Micro.
I just thought you guys could give me some good advice maybe?
