Greetings,and many thanks, Sarah, for your tremendous achievements with regard to arachnoiditis.

Twice this fall I have had substantial remissions in spinal pain that I associated with my AA, which is anatomically significant from L1 through the sacral levels. My opiate use decreased to 1/4 of what it was, and I did not need meds for high blood pressure or sleeping.

Of course, this lasted only about six days, while I was having IM Gentamicin.

However, it happened twice, so it was no fluke. Doctors so far have no idea of how an antibiotic could have done that, since I do not have fever suggesting chronic meningitis (though I did have actute septic meningitis once).

Best wishes,
Roger

Hi Roger
Copied in to DocSarah, just in case she does not check the Forum this weekend. Medical answer in 24 hours.
I check the website 4-5 times a day and saw you on line before. Medically qualified? Thought so!
Best wishes
Kim

Hi Kim,
Thanks, but I'm so unqualified in medicine. However, since I seem to specialize in having rare diseases, I was forced to pick up the lingo in order to harangue and persuade doctors to listen to me. I figure it helps if you can be concise--something that does not necessarily come naturally to me, so using the right words helps. But not enough to get an explanation for those recent episodes.

Hi, again Roger,
Monday is her best day as I always get my new blog Sunday night/Monday morning,
Concise is good, sometimes.
Bye for now
