KO-LD - My husband has been scanning and faxing test results to his doctor friend..... since he just did this yesterday I don't really have any answers yet. I think I've done IV rocephin 3 times (I can't even remember - haha!)
Dr. C has put me back on Levaquin 250mg a day for 2 weeks, then 500mg a day for 2 weeks. And, in the meantime I have to make an appt. with the Immune/Allergist doctor.
These are the tests my husband's friend, Dr. T, had me take:
Th1/Th2 cytokine profile
Metal Elisa for Nickel and mercury
RNase L protein + RNase L activity
Natural killer cells : number and activity
Nitric oxide in serum
PCR of all herpes viruses : CMV, EBC, HHV6, HHV7, HHV8
PCR Chlamydia pneumoniae and trachomatis
PCR Mycoplasma genus and different species if positive
Mitogen T-cell stimulation test
CD57+ lymphocytes and C4a
Rickettsia, Coxiella, Babasia, Anaplasma and
Bartonella antibody titers and PCR
Parvovirus B19 Antibodies and PCR on cells.
