Re: I think my medical mystery could be solved -- Might be Staph...
zithro can take care of alot of different types of infections.it is a "good' anti B.it all depends on what is actually causing this to occur as to whether or not the zithro will even touch it.i am kind of suprised that they haven't done more actual testing on you to just find out for certain what is causing this to occur?it is just something that is done when trying to Dx any strange issue that can pop up inside our bodies,test and rule out and move on to the next thing,ya know?
i am thinking,only because this truely was the most in depth and comprehensive type of blood study i ever had in my entire life,going to see a rhuemy doc?this man tested me for every possible diesease and condition that could stem from an inflammatory type of issue or exist because of things like lyme disease or many other possible conditions,including autoimmune.it was a four page 'blood test".they sent labs all over the flippin country to specific places that only tested for certain things.it was really unreal actually.but this is what i would reccomend for you.it does also include testing for lyme disease too.it would at the very least,rule out a ton of possible reasons/causes or your situation.if things don't clear with the zithro,just so you know,even tho you only take the Z pack for five days,it still has to work the full ten in order to really get the best effects,try seeing a rheumatologist for that blood work up.it really hits all the highlights.and then kind of just go from there.
unfortunetly any real Dx of anything generally is a test and rule out type of thing.its just medicine.hopefully they will have it pinned down for you soon.good luck and please keep me posted,K? **
