Re: Persistence of borrelial DNA in Bb-infected mice

Dear Carina, The reason why so many, in fact a vast majority of all infection specialists in the world, have decided that dark field microscopy is an unreliable method to diagnose Lyme is beyond me. But as far as I can tell there is scientific evidence pointing to that the method is fraught with too...

The Psychological Effects of Tetracycline Derivatives

Hi, This thread is spurred by me actually watching a group of tired people become dramatically much more active, spiritual and subjectively reporting improvements in many aspects of QOL*, except perhaps UV-sensitization and difficulties to sleep, the latter possibly related to an increased level of ...

Re: clarithromycin and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil)

Hi, It is a medical doctor who is visited by many, who knows a little bit less than myself regarding the molecular basis and expressions of Lyme disease, but obviously much more when it comes to clinical practice. One unique aspect of this particular Med is that he respects the knowledge of patients...

Re: Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction

Hi Yvonne, I used every pain-killer I could think of in an as high dose that I dared and the pains/fever subsided within three days. Since the doctors didn't know what it was they allowed me to compelte the treatment. In retrospect the nature of the pain was interesting since the headache also inclu...

Re: Persistence of borrelial DNA in Bb-infected mice

Hi, Funky-O : I beleive that the hiding places identified so far in mice, and in spite of i.v. Ceftiaxone treatment (corresponding to adequate treatment in humans) formally include joints and also the tendons. The latter has been verified by a Finnish plus a U.S. research team. Hello Carina , Nice s...

Re: Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction

Hi Yvonne, It's good that you publish these descriptions of classical J-HR's, since in my opinion this word is rather often being mis-used, among patients with Lyme, to describe any form of ailments or pains which can, and oftentimes will occur during an antibiotics treatment. Unfortunately, J-HR is...

Re: Persistence of borrelial DNA in Bb-infected mice

DNA injected in tissue is normally degraded within a week. Fortunate people can eliminate the infection completely without any treatment, others somehow become friends with their spirochetes, yet others walk around for years and years with some unusual manifestation of the disease. The manifestation...

Re: clarithromycin and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil)

Hi, Only for three weeks, then 3-4 months of abstinence to monitor time to a possible relapse. If it's Lyme then I should relapse towards the end of that time-frame, partly based on previous experiences with Ceftriaxone and according the litterature research I've done. If experience a relapse earlie...

Hi, Less common side-effects of Clarithomycin ellegeably includes headaches, dizziness/motion sickness, rashes, alteration in senses of smell and taste, including a metallic taste. But Hydrochloroquinine is not entirely without neurological side effects in my experience, tinnitus becomes more pronou...

Re: Atypical dermatological manifestations of Lyme borrelios

Hi, Thank you Yvonne for bringing this (tragic) case to my attention. It is very unfortunate, but perhaps understandable under the circumstances, that the work up did not include a post mortem with additional Lyme testing and attempts to cultivate tha bacterium. I also noted that the full version wa...
