Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

More for Camp Other... I said: Otherwise, you leave us to the wolves. We are desperate and vulnerable and very easily preyed upon - even those of us who were strong of body and mind before getting sick have been so neglected by the IDSA and misled by ILADS that we have fallen for dangerous treatment...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

Hi everybody! Whew. I'm finally able to type a coherent sentence. I wanted to respond to Camp Other about people using long-term IV antibiotics for Lyme as well as a number of other conditions with poor tests and vague definitions like Lupus and RA, etc. The most important thing about taking antibio...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

Hi Camp Other! Guess what? I have issues with your issues with my issues... But I'm not thinking very clearly right now, so I'll have to respond a little later (hopefully!). Hi Margherita! I also want to address your very good and valid points further. And Duncan - About your ENT tests - what were t...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

Hi Duncan! It's always nice to read your posts. They always make me smile and think and sometimes even laugh out loud - especially your use of emoticons - but this last post had a rather serious tone to it. I think that either means you aren't feeling well today or we have struck upon a nerve. If th...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

There is a terrible epidemic going on right now - and I don't mean Lyme disease. It is the Intravenous Use of Antibiotics . People diagnosed with anything from Lyme Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) and even Scleroderma are calling it the Antibiotic Protocol o...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

I actually agree with Wormser and Lantos in that further antibiotics cannot help an infection that is dead or was never there in the first place, but what, then, is going on? I can read the literature just as well as the next guy. We all already know their position. But here I lay. In bed. Sick as a...

Re: Chronic coinfections in patients diagnosed with chronic

Way to put the work in, Wormser!

Wow. How much do they pay you to "evaluate" minus the "value"? I think I could actually get off disability and do that job!

Re: Webinar On Persister Cells in Lyme?

I was able to catch this webinar and was rather impressed at the respect and attention persistence was paid. It was very different from the tone of those at the CDC who used to basically make fun of those searching for persister cells. The CDC has even added an extra paragraph to their condescending...

Re: Kim Lewis finds up to 1% Borrelia persisters in vitro

Thank you for the information, LHCTom, though I am very sad to hear that our infections may not be over.

Re: Webinar on Lyme - state of research on persistence

Some questions for Linda Bockenstedt: You have found dead, left-over, immune-reactive Lyme spirochete debris in mice. Have you yet found this debris in humans? Do you have any ideas as to how to rid the body of this debris? Is inflammation from immune-reactive debris enough to explain the myriad neu...
