ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My partner has a condition most commonly known as Auto Brewer Syndrome. This condition comes from taking an antibiotic without taking a pro-biotic at the same time. His body makes alcohol without him drinking. He can shoot from having a BAC of a zero to a .30 in thirty minutes. His body can stay and extremely dangerously high levels of BAC for days and days. Once it lasted over a week. He broke his thumb years ago and got an infection, this was the only time he had ever taken an antibiotic. When he was once flaring, he took a fall that left him with a brain bleed and he had to be airlifted to a hospital in VA. This condition is extremely rare and hard to get diagnosed because not all doctors believe in the condition. They just think the patient is a closet drinker. We spent years searching for a cure and finally found a dr that did give him some relief for a little over a year, however, just recently he has started flaring again. The Dr that he has been seeing is in Staten Island NY and we live in NC, that is a 10 hour drive 1 way. We also spent a year with a Dr out of OHIO and that was a 13 hour drive and one Dr. in Myrtle Beach, NC that is a 5 hour drive. His Staten Island Dr has written a case study on this condition as well as his OHIO Dr. I am a member of a support group with about 195 members who suffer from this condition. This condition is hell and consumes every aspect of your life. We are over our heads with medical debt and so far behind on personal finances due to him losing time working. People have gotten DUI's and lost their jobs because they were accused of being a closet drinker. As of right now, one member is sitting in jail. Everyone in the group has had several things that they feel fives them some relief, but as of now, there is not one single person that hasn't suffered a relapse. This condition has consumed our life, we can't make plan ever. You wake up everyday and have to wait to see if my partner is well. We must keep a breathalyzer with us at all times. He will go to bed well and wake up drunk. We are desperate to get an absolute cure and not just a "he's well today" type of life. Not to mention getting the word out to all people that this is preventable, just by taking a probiotic when you are prescribed an antibiotic. We beg for your help to give us our life back completely and fully.
