Going for mri tomorrow 8 AM at my local
VA. The ID doctor wants to see if I am all there so to speak. All my VA labs for Lyme,
Bartonella, Babesia came back negative as did the 24 hour urine for heavy metals. He dismissed my 41 kDa Western Blot band as insignificant. My current meds are: doxycycline,
bactrim, artemisinin. No way am I stopping them now. Having many more good days than bad, able to work and play etc and do not want to go back where I was as late as January 2010. Wish me luck.

Gadolinium is toxic. NAC should help, if possible try to take some NAC afterwards.Drink lots of good water for your kidneys.

Had the MRI minus the Gadolinium and the tech said if they found anything suspicious I might need to have the Gadolinium anyway. Well they said I was good to go afterward and did not need the Gadolinium which I take as a good sign. Did not get anything official though, maybe next week for that. Thank you feelfit and karenl for the well wishes and detox advice.
