Steve J's Update: One-week break, then new abx

Submitted by cypriane on Mon, 2008-09-29 12:04

The following is what Steve's LLMD prescribed, but I hope it also does something for his Cpn and Mpn infections:

1st:  One week off all abx (to observe what happens and to entice Bb out of cystic form and into spirochete form).  This ended yesterday.

2nd:  Begin new course today of Biaxin and Ceftin.  This started today, and we have no inkling what effect it might have.  They're not noted for good BBB penetration, but Lymies' BBB's lack integrity.  So, maybe there will be some neuro benefit by virtue of leakage.

This past week off of abx was interesting:

Day 1 - Crummy

Day 2 - Pretty good

Day 3 - Crummy and tired

Day 4 - Very good with exceptional bladder function

Day 5 - Crummy with pretty good bladder function

Day 6 - Awful, tired, fell twice in the bar ditch, couldn't get up

Day 7 - So-so (forgot the injection)

Steve has noted that the recently added B12/methyl folate/P5P injections every other day result in a pattern of feeling better on the day after and not quite so good on the day of the injection.  That was doubtless wielding some bit of influence on most of the week described above.

Wish you both all the best and hope that this treatment helps,

Best Wishes from Maria
