I have M.S. but its in remission?

Got the results of my latest MRI today.  The radiologist report said that in comparing with the previous MRI (January 2009) there was no change in the number or size of the lesions and as in 2009, none of them were enhancing.  

Every other person I know with M.S. is deteriorating but I'm getting slightly better and the doctors won't believe me that the antibiotics had anything to do with it (even - as with my neurologist - they ask me specifically whether I have been taking them).  

If there is any downside to the CAP, it is that without it I would probably be retired on disability by now (and due to a quirk in the way they changed our retirement plan at work, the disability annuity is slightly more generous than regular retirement).   

All I can say is that I feel blessed that I found the Wheldon Protocol and this site.

 

I'll second that!

As will I!   Really good news!  That is what happened with mine, till by number six we figured out what was happening.    By choice I won't have any more.  The last one showed even more significant shrinkage and some had disappeared altogether.

Great news! So happy for you. I plan to have one more MRI this year - but it may be the last

5oo mgs Ceftin 2 x/day, 500 mgs Zithromax, 500 mgs 2 x tini pulses,100 mg diflucan, 4.5 ldn; Wheldon protocol for MS April, 2006 to May 2008. 2008 MRI shows NO NEW DISEASE ACTIVITY, 2012 MRI no new disease activity.

Well, my neurologist is something of an "MRI junkie" so as long as my progression remains "atypical" (and they won't accept that it's due to antibiotics) they are likely to recommend a new one once a year (which is what my insurance company will pay for) to try and figure it out.

CAP for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazole + INH completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.
