Cycle 9: 2 days on/2 days off coxsackievirus immunotherapy

Continuing 2 days on/2 off coxsackievirus immunotherapy. Rationale is balancing viral reproduction cycle time (3 days) vs minimum healing time (3 days). I am shorting the healing time by 1 day to minimize coxsackievirus spread rather than have to take licorice but will continue to closely monitor progress and adjust.


Today I'm starting the 2 days on/2 days off cycle. So far it seems to be an improvement as yesterday I was getting paresis numb feeling in my peripheral digits following intense pain and coldness at vicodin levels. Today I have much more pronounced tightness under the metatarsals. Ribs still are tender at the lower edges but in a smaller distribution. Licorice appetite has significantly dropped. This seems to be indicating that the coxsackievirus was reproducing (unlike the non-cytolytic coxsackievirus theory claimed) but that the two day cycles are blocking its production of infectious virion particles. Central lower abdomen still has some tenderness but distribution and intensity has decreased. This is definitely a battle but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Mental capacity keeps increasing but still resting a lot.
Toe adductor muscles and over plantar metatarsales have about 50% parethesia. Interferon alpha was normal but reading could be suppressed by methotrexate treatment. Toe inflammation visibly decreasing. (Timothy B. Niewold, Daniel N. Clark, Rafah Salloum, Brian D. Poole, "Interferon Alpha in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus", BioMed Research International, vol. 2010, Article ID 948364, 8 pages, 2010. https://doi.org/10.1155/2010/948364 ) Covid antibody testing was negative.
Had some fast temporary partial loss of hearing in right ear. Pain in upper arms, deep upper leg muscles. Throat and legs much stronger. Appetite for licorice down from 2 pieces before to half a piece. Using aged white cheddar cheese (spermadine) to stimulate autophagy in some mornings.

Starting cycle 10 enterovirus inhibitor tomorrow.
