I have been pulsing for quite some time now, usually 2 weeks on 1 week off or 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. I still have symptoms, though very mild in nature. My symptoms are occasional muscle twitching, occasional hypnic jerks, and very occasional muscle pain. In November last year, I decided to see what would happen if I took an extended break off of abx. I went 6 weeks with no abx or any other treatment and did not feel any returning or worsening symptoms. Today I decided to restart the meds as I don't want to push it too far.
I know everyone will agree this is a good sign, but do I continue to see how far I can make it without abx and as soon as I notice some returning or worsening symptoms get back on them? I am wondering if maybe my infection is mostly dormant at this point, and I have knocked it back far enough to where I only need to treat flareups? I feel like I may be popping pills pointlessly, when really I should be saving the pills for flareups.
Thanks in advance.
