    I know there are people here on this board like Munch1958 and elsewhere who have seen him, if he's the one in Springfield. Lots of good experiences in fact, he seems to be very knowledgeable.

    good luck, glad you're looking into this! Please let us know how your appointment goes!

    all the best,
    Victoria

    Yes, I see Dr. C in Springfield. My first visit was in October.

    It's a trial and error protocol with ABX. See my profile. I had CFS for 7 1/2 years before diagnosed with Lyme.

    Of Dr. C's protocol, I would skip the clindimycin/quinine protocol. It's outdated and several patients get very sick with little benefit. Everything else is as you can tolerate.

    BTW, I returned to work last week after a 2 year hiatus. Recovery is slow. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

    Good luck.

    People fly in from all over to see him. I worked with him for awhile but decided I was doing better on the Marshall protocol and so stopped seeing him due to distance.

    I am currently a patient of Dr. C's. I have had CFS for 13 yrs, and got a lyme's diagnosis about a year ago. He is a very helpful doctor, and I am impressed with the amount of care and attention given. His office runs very smoothly, and his staff is wonderful.

    I do not consider myself as having CFS or FM anymore. All of my symptoms are gone. I very seldom log on to this board seeking answers. I think I've found them after 27 years. It is wonderful to NOT have muscle pain or fatigue.

    I wish Dr C was closer to me tho. It's an exhausting 2 day trip but it's worth it. I've been seeing him since 4/07. Prior to this I had gone to the Detroit FFC so I had all of the tests that I needed up front. My DH didn't want to drive to MO after making 7 useless trips to Detriot but I'm so glad we did it.

    My brother did the Clindy & Quinine protocol. He thought it kicked his Babs. It didn't make me sick but I did herx from it. I think doing the 10 days identified that I had Babs. I finally got rid of the Babs with 4 months of Malarone + Zith.

    I have lots of hormone deficiencies from Borrelia and Co-Infections. Dr C knows a lot about hormones. He was the first to identify my issues with growth hormone. I can't really say if getting the right amount of thryoid or growth hormone and/or the Abx took away the muscle pain. I'm just thrilled that it's gone.
