For future readers with Ankylosing Spondylitis/Scleroderma:  I don't write too much about how my walking has been affected by Cpn, but it was the first major symptom that something was really wrong with me.  In the fall of 2016, I had been getting progressively stiffer with what I thought, at the time, more painful sciatica.  Sleeping became a nightmare as I couldn't turn in bed without significant pain.  Then, one day I woke up and I couldn't unbend myself to stand.  I couldn't turn my torso... I couldn't twist to clean myself.  I couldn't walk upright basically.  I was stuck in this bent position most days for months.  And then I took the Doxycycline for a trip and most of the pain went away as did much of stiffness/soreness.

Thanks Jan, it will be soon: updates are now completed, so research can be looked at!

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.
