I was recently recommened the book The New Arthritis Breakthrough by Henry Scammell written in conjunction with Dr. Thomas Brown. I hope this topic hasn't already been discussed to death, I am new to this part of Fibro Support Group. I was very leary at first because the treatment is so different from anything I have read about or heard about. It is actually for all Connective Tissue Disease - RA, Lupis, Scleroderma, Fibro etc. The treatment is using an antibiotic (Minocycline) to stop the progression of the disease rather than other medications to take away or lesson the pain as the disease progresses and becomes worse. It was recommended by a man who has had this treatment (for RA) and whose life is so much more improved. Is there anyone who has heard of this treatment or had this treatment? My husband really wants me to try it. I would need to go to a doctor who is doing this treatment. I haven't yet checked into where the closest one might be located. Any info would be very helpful.
