I suffered with progressively worsening pain in my hands, wrists, arms, and shoulders for 4 years. Last year, I was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica and had such severe pain by then I was prescribed 20 mg of prednisone to try to alleviate the progression and pain. However when I dropped the dose biweekly per doctor instruction, the pain was returning.  Although I did what the doctor ordered, over time the pain was getting bad again and I couldn’t get below 10 mg.

On January 2, 2018, I started doxy, NAC, and the rest of the protocol supplements. On 1/30 I started azithromycin. By today, 2/22, I’m down to 7 mg pred and will reduce to 6 mg next week! I know not everyone responds quickly to the protocol but I just wanted to say, for me it’s working quickly on the pain!

Trish, it is very good that you have been able to start to reduce the dose of prednisone so quickly: long may it continue!   I hope that you have as much success with your asthma: thinking of my experience I think you might well..........................Sarah

Hi Sara,

My asthma is gone. For some reason doxycycline alone stops it but it didn’t impact the upper body pain until I started the azithromycin. I still have some but it’s the mildest it’s been since I was on 20 mg of pred last year. In other words, this is the best I’ve been without the prednisone doing it! Did you have asthma with your ms?

2003 Asthma diagnosis - 2004 took doxycycline per Dr. David Hahn work - asthma free. 2014 developed upper body myalgia/arthritis and asthma returned. Dec 2015 c pneumonia bloodwork IGG titer 1:512. Took 6 months of doxy for asthma flare up - again asthma gone but myalgia stayed. Dec 2017, extreme fatigue started. Emailed Dr. Wheldon. Research on cpnhelp.org - Jan 2, 2018 started Wheldon protocol.

Yes I did, but it just faded away before I started metronidazole!  The asthma began roughly when my MS changed to progressive, but it was the first thing to go......................Sarah

Well done, Trish

Stay with it. Mine is all gone and has now been so for several years.  It is (unbelieveably!) curable.

  There are some times when it doesn't seem possible, but perseverance pays with great rewards here.
