Research papers on Stratton/Wheldon's CAP
Went to my doctors yesterday and was uncomfortable with the result. He's the top infectious disease doc in the country but I came away quite worried. I am on 200mg doxy (1 month) and 300mg Rifampicin (10 days) and my results were 71IGg - anything about 22 being positive for CPn. I am having big reactions worse than any previous symptoms of CFS - palpitations, ringing in ears, headache, loss of balance, chest pains, pains in my legs - one day I thought my head would burst the pain was so bad.
I told him about the Stratton and Wheldon protocols and he hadn't heard of them and wasn't convinced. So I have to try and stay on my protocol at the moment and tough it out. He didn't want to discuss porphyria but just wanted to get rid of the infection And also dismissed pulsing in metronidazole. I'm quite worried but will tough it out as I want to get better. im starting the supplements ASAP.
i asked about the meds and he said it's trial and error we have no idea what works, the research just hasn't been done yet. Could you point me to research papers that confirm the Stratton/Wheldon protocols so I can convince him. He said he saw some information from someone in Washington but that person had lost their licence in N Carolina - that scared me.
i'm trying to compile a folder of evidence I can send him to make sure i get the right treatment.
