I've been lucky, I've had reactions, but nothing too terrible.
Ok. To cut the long story short. For 2 years I have been dealing with prostatitis, urethritis and reactive arthritis after an intercourse. I have also problems with fast heart rate and body tempature which I am always very sensitive to cold.I had symptom free time for almost 4 months. Then the thing came back again. Countless semen culture, urine culture ,some specific tests for chlamydia trachomatis pcr , mycoplasma pcr were negative. However last week a cpn test IgG came positive. Test value was 48 which was over the normal test value 22.I live in Turkey. I must say doctors are not helping me much because they are imcompetent even in the research universities.
it’s been a fortnight since i finished pulse 3. After effects were nausea, fatigue, more fatigue, exhaustion, more aching, basically, every reason to jump off the world. Then it, suddenly, felt so much better! Today, my drop-foot was quite severe, but, as Paul was there, to lean on, i still went for a long, long dog walk. I ache, as much as before, but, really, that isn’t too much. Sleep has been elusive, i have drunk a little and blamrd that, but I had to drink champagne, at a funeral, two days ago, and, still, felt good yesterday! i’ve had night sweats but, at 49, i think that is probably to be expected!
Last Monday, I was so inspired by JaneK's post, I decided to start a pulse myself. I am early this time but at least I get it in before my holiday. This is, I think, pulse # 45. I have one more day to go.
Finished pulse number 3 yesterday, it wasn't a walk in the park, but nor was it too difficult. Yesterday I was more awake than for ages, but, slept dreadfully last night, so i'm tired today and our long dog walk, on the beach, exhausted me, i ached (strangely, n my arms,hands and and elbows) but, again,not too much. I haven't had the CPn test, and won't, for the same reason haven't asked for an updated MS dx ... suggestion! I don't think many of us here are 'victims', just people carrying their crosses with as much grace and humour as possible. And i'm looking forward to a drink tomorrow night!Jane
What can one do to kill CPN without taking antibiotics?I have read that Ozone can kill one phase of CPN. Will that stop the cycle?
After my marathon cold coming to an stubborn end, I have finally been able to pulse again. This morning, I got up early (for me) and took a tini tab. This is pulse 44. I had planned on using metro but the tini were close at hand. Let's see how we go with this one.

Oral lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant, has been found to reduce the progress of brain atrophy in secondary progressive MS. Here is a link to this fascinating paper. http://nn.neurology.org/content/4/5/e374.full.pdf The trial was a small one, but the authors hope to conduct larger multicentre trials in the future.
The day before yesterday I walked home, an easy peesy walk, wearing my ruck sack, which had very little weight, but some. As I reached the end of my street the weight threw my balance off, so I couldn't help but stumble backwards into the road and fall. Thankfully our quiet road was empty so, having righted myself, I continued on my way, staying close to the wall and now I take hubby out with me. I've always been very, very strong and capable and walked fast, but can't now,so this scared me, and convinced the neighbours that I'm a boozer! I began pulse 2 today with a little trepidation but realised my vibrating ear drum has been quiet for a few weeks, so I'm feeling it willall be worth it, just take David's advice, to be careful of falls, seriously!
