> I've been researching a lot lately about what could have possibly been an acute mystery illness I had 20 years ago that lead to my 20 year battle with mental illness ever since.

> One thing that's caught my interest lately is a possible toxic reaction to a class of antibiotics called Fluoroquinolones. The week I got sick I had a few root canals done and antibiotics are routinely used as a prophylactic. I had extremely elevated liver enzymes and tested negative for all hep viruses. Acute liver injury is one of the possible outcomes of this drug.

> Apparently another thing this class of antibiotic can do is bind to receptors and cause their inhibition. One of the main receptors it binds to is GABA (also dopamine). The reduction in GABA input can cause not only SEVERE anxiety (which I started having that week) but also insane muscle rigidity and cramping. I remember there'd be moments I had to lie down with my limbs stretched out because any slightest movement would make me twitch and my body to clamp up like a rock. I even had a seizure.

Is there a way of regenerating receptors, or does neurogenesis apply to other brain cells? I keep researching this online and can't find much on receptor rejuvenation.

In addition to my last post. I was just thinking, there is a school of thought that says in cases like this you load up the system with precursor molecules. So for depression it might be a ton of 5-HTP and for Parkinsons it would we a ton of L-Dopa or L-Tyrosine or both. For GABA it would be Glutamine. I've personally had limited success with this in treating myself but for a while it was brilliantly effective (5-HTP). Slow acting but the effect builds.
