International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Very interesting indeed - thanks merylg - my own Consultants referred to my arthritis as "reactive" (but from what I was never advised so well advised to look into)

    Interesting topic, so much that most docs dont know about these types of infections. Off the top of my head 3 abx are normally used and introduced 1 at a time, doxycycline, then azithromycin and after several months flagyl is pulsed. This strategy is used to kill the infection during its different life cycles. All abx are started off slowly like every second or third day until they are well tolerated then the next is added and so on, die off reactions are common with this treatment and the length of treatment can last years, die off reaction isnt said to last that long though. there is a Cpn thread with alot more info.

    cheers!!!

    NAC is supposedly pretty effective against CPN - 2 x per day on empty stomach is worth a try.
