Some of you may recall that I visited National Jewish Hospital last year in my relentless quest for answers about my unresponsive asthma. I went on a 9 month course of antibiotics after that trip to eradicate a microbacteria from my lungs called mycoplasma. You can read about it here.
Well, here it is over a year later and I have interesting news.
I have been having a heckuva time breathing since the heat index went through the roof here in East Tennessee over the past two weeks along with some other extenuating breath challenging situations. I visited my new asthma doc for some relief and she gave me some new meds to get me through until the heat subsides and the ozone levels go down.
She also told me that I have the first viable improvement in my breathing in years! So that means the Biaxin must have worked, which means that my regular asthma meds may finally be able to get in there and do their job.
So...although I'm currently wheezy and exhausted, there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel!
If you know anyone with unresponsive asthma, MS, Crohns, Gulf War Syndrome, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis or any other long term chronic inflammatory or immune system condition, they may benefit from this therapy too.
I had to fight hard to get this answer and I really want other folks to know there is hope, it's not just you and sometimes you just have to fight long enough until someone finally listens.
Fight the good fight, you are worth it!
