Newby needs help! Need MD in New England
Hi you all,
I just joined your group. I've been somewhere between tired and exhausted for almost 3 years. Recently I got my holistic MD to test me for chronic infectionsi. On Monday he told me that I had had all 5 that he tested for, including Cpni, but that I was not currently infected. When I asked whether I might have Cpn even though the test was negative, he said yes and offered me a 3-week prescription for doxycycline renewable 3 times. I was out of his office before I had a chance to ask him about using a CAPi or about the various protocolsi.
Now I don't know what to do. He says if I feel better on the doxy, that will show I have some sort of bacterial infection. He didn't say under what circumstance I should renew the prescription and take it for 9 weeks. I'm worried that taking doxy by itself might not prove anything or might make things worse.
I mentioned to him that I tried taking NACi and felt pretty awful on it. He didn't think that that was an indication of Cpn. He said I could feel bad because NAC increases liver detox. I didn't get how that would be true.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Are there any doctors in New England who are experienced in treating Cpn? Should I try the doxy and see if it helps?
Thanks so much! I really want to feel better.
