Re: Winged scapula in lyme borreliosis

Oh wow, that sounds really interesting, thanks!....I'm going to forward this to my docs, maybe they have access. I've been off antibiotics for about a half a year or so now (thanks to a short round of dapsone), and my back has healed a lot. I can finally start to do some back exercises with weight/f...

Re: Possible Lyme Cure - Stevia with Dapsone Pyrazinamide Flagyl Tindamax

I'll chime in. I second the dapsone protocol. I did it without the stevia tho, although I have put stevia in my kefir in the past and it always spiked my neuropathy. I made it up to 100 mg of dapsone for about two months total. (Had to take a break because was having trouble getting the local hospit...

Re: Porphyria & Dark Urine

Well, good news. Even tho I did not make it the full 6 months on dapsone, only made it two. It seems to have had a major impact. I have now been off antibiotics for about two months. Previous to this I could not last more than two weeks off antibiotics. Fingers crossed I am done with antibiotics for...

Porphyria & Dark Urine

Does anyone know of conditions which will turn urine dark on exposure to sunlight other than porphyria? See example picture in this study here: Chen G-L, Yang D-H, Wu J-Y, Kuo C-W, Hsu W-H. Neuropathic pain in hereditary coproporphyria. Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences. 2013;29(2):672-674. https...

Re: CVID/Immune Deficiencies, TNF Gene Mutations, and Lyme

This is crossing threads a bit, but I am now coming across a few people in the immune support groups who have hypogammaglobulinemia and MS. And I know many of us on here have had the discussion before about there being no distinguishing feature between MS and late stage Lyme. This would match with t...

Re: Borrelia in cystic form after hyperthermia treatment at St Georg clinic

Can you elaborate a bit ? Do you mean your symptom free on Dapsone and by "flared up" you mean you had a different experience than the usual herx from ........ ? So it took about 2-3 years, but a combo of multiple antibiotics, herbs, and vitamins has gotten me to the point I'm symptom free while on...

Re: Borrelia in cystic form after hyperthermia treatment at St Georg clinic

Search the forum on round bodies. I believe they aren't technically cysts, but round bodies? And if so, I don't see why they couldn't revert under the right environment and start to grow again. Have you tried dapsone yet? I am asymptomatic on antibiotics now, but when I go off I relapse. I started d...
