Anyone had any luck with doxycycline?


Improved ME from 2 to 5
Eastern NC USA
People with ME/CFS had the lowest median quality of life (QOL) scores of any disease tested [Note: this included several cancers]. The next highest QOL score was 12% higher (bleeding ulcer). Next came people with chronic kidney failure with 15% higher scores.

People with the big, scary diseases ( the ones people think – “Please, Lord not me!”) all had consistently higher quality of life scores than people with ME/CFS.

Schizophrenia is one of the last diseases I would wish on anyone, but people with schizophrenia scored 21% higher in their QOL scores than people with ME/CFS. The same was true for people with stroke, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

People with Type I Diabetes, cancer or heart problems had it relatively easy. Their QOL scores were 33% higher than those for people with ME/CFS.

Remember this the next time someone tells you to walk it off.
