Since being diagnosed I have been researching non-stop about this disease and my symptoms. I've come across a few message boars and resources that describe treating Scleroderma, RA, MCTD, and other autoimmune diseases with antibiotics like minocycline. Individuals claim to have great success with antibiotic treatment, but most doctors seems to dismiss it as nonsense.
I have also read conflicting NIH studies that both give plausible credit to it and some that say it is unproven.
Has anyone here actually had first hand experience or know of anyone that has treated auto immune conditions with antibiotics like minocycline? This seems to be a very controversial topic. Personally, I am very skeptical of many things and it seems too good to be true, but anything to keep the powerful and toxic immunosuppresants away seems promising.
