RA diagnosed in 2003 and cured with low dose long term doxycycline in 2004, was followed by Polymyalgia Rheumatica -Temporal Arteritis later, maybe 2008? which was diagnosed with a temporal biopsy, halted and cured with prednisone tapered off as blood work indicated. I got 3 kidney stones as a side effect from the prednisone, so I’m curious if anyone’s cured Polymyalgia Rheumatica -Temporal Arteritis with doxy. My arthritis and GP docs were afraid of possible blindness from the Temporal Arteritis, and thus prescribed the prednisone. My naturopathic doctor suggested I read Dr. Brown’s book after my RA diagnosis, and I did no other drugs for it. My health is good now at age 81, in spite of spinal stenosis, caused by a rough active life, which requires daily physical therapy. I also have age related macular degeneration which requires expensive eye injections 4 times a year, and I wonder if it could be related to the RA diagnosed in 2003 and cured with low dose long term doxycyclinein 2004, was followed by Polymyalgia Rheumatica -Temporal Arteritis? I’ll ask my eye doctor next month.
