I'm facing a life and death battle with a rare sulfur based pathogen that only responds to sulfur drugs. Does anyone know what the organism name is?! I can't find the appropriate tests and can't convince the doctors because it's such a rare thing but I've been going thru some horrible problems for several years and sulfur antibiotics are the only thing it seems to respond to.

It isn't a bacteria, fungi, protozoa, amoeba, virus, or parasite (although it is parasitic)...it was described as a sulfur-based micro-organism requiring six months to a year of intravenous sulfur antibiotics to cure. If I don't find the name I'm going to have to throw sulfur drugs at it randomly to keep myself alive...if I had the organism name I could find out all the information about it, get testing, be under a doctors care, and maybe find a natural remedy that would help my chances.
