(CURED Back Pain)
long course of low dose amoxicillin/biaxin.
How long? Was back pain resolution the goal or a bonus?A huge bonus I wasn't expecting this at all, I started low does biaxin/amoxicillin for Lyme. My Dr. never changed my prescript
ion or increased the does so I eventually left after 7 months. I was surprised that during this time I never had back pain like I had before and I still haven't had it....I noticed that after going fishing for crawdads, being exposed to raw chicken, that I developed my back pain....Wow that is really super. Now that you mention it as a kid I grew up on Long Island and we would frequently go set crab traps with raw chicken. Im sure handling crabs that my skin was cut or broken several times. A decade later my back is starting to deteriorate. Could it be possible?
Also the doses they are using now are extremely high, yet you did 7 mos. of low doses. How bad was your back? Do you still have RA?
I see they use Minocycline and other tetracyclines for RA, yet I ddint have improvement in back pain after about
6 weeks of Doxy. My back loved Augmentin.
This lady had to do years on antibiotics for her RA as she had a tooth infection for 30 years which she ignored. www.arthritis-cure.co.uk/my-rheumatoid-arthritis-latest-news-and-experiences/
Ive always had dental issues and lots of mercury filings. The Lyme caused my last 4 real teeth to rot from the inside out. Ive had the pain for 28 years.
Others seem to have done as little as 6 weeks of IV Penicillin in studies and cured back pain. I am wondering if I should give the Penicillin a try first and if I could do oral Penecillin. Is it worth a try before going crazy with 100 days of Augmentin tid.
What do you guys think?
What are the risks if I do Augmentin and feel better after 2 months and stop? Maybe I could go for 2 weeks more after feeling better for a week. Cant I just pick up where I left off if it comes back? Is there a risk of anaerobic bacteria becoming resistant? I've never heard of resistant P. acnes before but prior to a couple days ago I never heard of P. acnes
So much to consider. I definitely want to go after the back pain. I don't want to die of C Diff.
Im not a doctor, but I sure do play one more often than Id like to and with good success so far. I don't want to screw this one up.
open to all opinions because before I start would be the time to ask.
