Wow, thanks Scott!
Concerning the inflammation issue I will make some further speculations/observations on this issue, but this will be all I have to offer you since I am just another guy posting who happens to have received a new immune system not so long ago and some of the issues may overlap. In no particular order:
1) You can't rule out issues a systemic inflammatory environment that is being activated by leaky barriers. Most common culprits are: periodontal disease and increased intestinal barrier permeability. The gut wall permeability issue is especially big after a long course of full spectrum antibiotics. In other words, get some guidance on repopulating your gut flora. This is good science speaking here, honest. Has the effectiveness minocycline in BP as an antibiotic, rather than an antiviral, been ruled out? Could the loss loss of effect be due bacterial resistance being developed? Just a thought.
2) Another issue is viruses. Viruses once in the body never go away, lying latent until times of immune system weakness, for example, from stress. Viral activation can wreak havoc on the brain also. Refer to a '13 study that found: a 4-month course of the oral antiviral agent valacyclovir boosted cognition in herpes simplex virus-1seropositive patients with bipolar disorder and cognitive impairment in a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Also a virus can cause harmful immune reactions in the latent state. We are just learning what it might mean to have latent toxoplasmosis virus in the brain.
Also issues with blood brain barrier permeability complicates things further.
3) The term autoimmune reaction can perhaps be a lazy term, as constant low grade bacterial leakage or in some cases viruses will induce what may described as an autoimmune event (e.g. an elevated /Th17 profile). It is perhaps much more commoo than thought.
4) Anyway, my point is, if we watchful for these immune threats to systemic health, perhaps brain health may improve/stabilize also. Or put another way, if we put good shoes on a horse, maybe it won't fall and hurt its head!
