Loc: Central Canada
I started clarithromycin a few days ago. I will be on it for a total of three weeks at 1000 mg/day. Either two 500 mg doses a day or 1000 mg once. The choice was up to me and so I went for the 1000 mg dose to spike the concentration in my system.

This treatment actually is for an infection of bartonella caught in August 2013 which initially gave me inflammation in my cervical spine that worked its way down to my tail after 18 months. Then around April 2017 symptoms started touching my right hip, right knee, right foot, left and left shoulder blade. Now every joint is effected but I get zero joint swelling. There even is an effect in my skin in that blood poorly flows in it. My thighs sting, burn and ache. The bottom of my feet sting and burn. All my symptoms are understood to be caused by how bartonella colonizes epithelial tissue and collagen.

I have been through three family doctors in seven months. The last one is tolerating me. He referred me to an internist that I saw two times. The last time the internist rudely said, "I'm done with you! GOOD BYE!"

He was an arrogant, unempatheitc, short tempered, psychopath. Getting treatment for bartonellosis is just as challenging as Lyme Disease. No MD in Canada's communist medical system would entertain the idea that I have an old infection.

I had to fly 2000 km to see a doctor that was trained by Ed Breitschwerdt. He had no doubt that I have bartonellosis. I will see how clarithromycin effects my "arthritis."

My infections are more complicated due to a scuba accident and stuipidly using ibuprofen.

I'll give updates in this thread.

It seems to me that the problem is more with you than with the doctors.

As for "Canada's communist medical system" where on Earth did you get such a ridiculous idea from?
