16th Pulse Finished

Body

I finished my 16 Pulse yesterday, Friday, May 1st, 2020.  Again, a five-day pulse of Tinidazole.  This was a more difficult pulse, with greater periods of fatigue than the last several pulses.  

Pain issues this week:  I had more pain + stiffness + soreness in right leg ---I think much of this is largely due to a fall I had prior to the last pulse.

I finished my 17th Pulse yesterday:  Friday, May 29th, 2020.  Again, a five-day pulse of Tinidazole.  This pulse was a mix---most days I had very mild fatigue, and one day included some very intense pain down the right side of my body.  

--This past month I have continued to rehab from the fall I took.  My knee is almost back to normal.  Two things helped enormously:  KT/Kinesio Tape and Comfrey Salve.  Rebounding is soft/low but I need to do it to help with low back aches.

--I realized I have not been taking any supplemental Vitamin C, so I started taking Sodium Ascorbate for the last few weeks.  I get a definite boost in energy from it.

--I have stopped taking Agmatine Sulfate for a time as the Boswellia Serrata seems to be a very effective anti-inflammatory, increases energy, and improves mood.
 

Updates:

Scleroderma:  Upper back is rapidly softening, loosening, and receding.  I’ve still a ways to go, but it is nice to see this area of hard, thickened collagen receding at what seems like a faster pace.  Yea!

Ankylosing Spondylitis:  No stiffness, no pain.  What can I say?  This is great.

Psoriasis (on elbows only):  Still reducing in circumference.  Redness is reducing.  Both elbows are much thinner and more flexible.

 

--We are preparing for my mother-in-law to move in part-time as the care-home won’t allow any visitors.

--Temperature here today is 111F/43C!  Much too hot for May!

 

Cheers and thanks for reading, and as always I look forward to any comments,

Hi Jan,

That sounds excellent. It’s so good to see. All the nasty problems diminishing. 😊 I’ll start a pulse tomorrow.

I’m in quarantine in Auckland with limited chance to exercise, so I can’t really judge if my walking is still improving. I definitely recommend getting assistance at the airport. It was super. It had never occurred to me before but I’ll do it always from now on. If there are any flights. Honestly: Qatar Airways from London to Sydney via Doha seemed only 30% full. The cabin crew were wearing full head-to-toe white hazard suits.  I can’t see how long these flights can continue unless the fares go up dramatically. 

Bye for now!

I've been following your adventure to get home... after falling on a slick (wet) floor, I am all for any preventative measures!  

I don't think my family is going to be travelling (via air) in the near future.... I also don't see how the airlines can maintain almost empty flights.... terrible waste of fuel. 

How is New Zealand?  Did you feel the earthquake that didn't rattle the unflappable PM?  Where are you in NZ?

Good luck on the upcoming pulse!

Cheers,

Jan
