I am a 55 yr old female looking for someone who is familiar with the e-coli strain 0157, shiga toxin (STEC). I had this in Jan. 2003 (bloody diareah and treated with ciprfloxacin) and feel this has been the on-going cause of my muscle pain and fatigue. I believe I was noticing muscle pain before the end of the year. I am discouraged with the medical field, my doctor only checking my muscle enzymes in 2011 and she didn t follow through to tell me they were elevated till my next physical 1 1/2 yrs later. She was wanting to treat me for fibromyagia, but I question that as I believe elevated muscle enzymes is not common in Fibro. At my last appointment she was steering towards depression. I couldn t believe it! I switched doctors in Mar 2013 and he orders bloodwork for my CK every 3 mon. My creatine kinase numbers have fluctuated between 137 (Jan 2011)and 419 (Apr 2013). My latest test in Feb 2014 was 226. I have also gone to several natural health practioners with their own ways, but it wasn t till Mar 2013 through my own research that I was aware the e-coli strain I had was Escherichia coli 0157. I have recently seen a naturapath who thinks I should consider IV treatments of ozone, hydrogen peroxide and Vit C. I have been on a for better health for a good 9 yrs. It has consumed my life and mind. I had been an active healthy woman prior to this bacteria. What is your input? Thank you. Cecile
