Please help me understand my chlamydia and mycoplasma antibodies.

Here in my country doctors know little about chlamydia, but i have persistent cough and weakness.

Here are my results 1,5 month after a 10 day 1000mg clarithromycin treatment (my doctor told most people get healed by that).

Chlamydia pneumoniae IgGi 3,4 < 8,5   (considered negative by local lab)

Chlamydia pneumoniae IgM  5,7 < 8,5  ( considered negative by local lab)               

Mycoplasma pneumoniae igG 1,5 < 10   (considered negative by local lab)

Mycoplasma pneumoniae igM 15< 10    (considered positive by local lab)

--------------------------------

3 days later did tests in another lab

Chlamydia P igA -Negative 

Chlamydia P igM- borderline

Chlamydia P IgG- QN 1,17 (<16 RU/mL) Netaive

Mycoplasma P igA- Borderline

Mycoplasma P igM- positive

Mycoplasma P igG- QN 51,7 (<16 RU/mL) Positive

Thank you very much for reading:)

Your problem is  probably Mycoplasma, may I suggest you to repeat chlamydia test in two or three months from now.

P.S.  : Clarithro is absolutely wrong in this case ( and: for 2 weeks is absolutelyabsolutely!!! Wrong!) 

Hey there, i also sent you pm but incase you do not notice that ill post here as well.

Why do you feel that the antibioticsi that I took were wrong and the period of taking them was also off. could you please reply why so, what would have been the more proper way in my situation.

Now six month later my chlamydia igmi has gone up from 5,7 to 11,3 while 8,5 is the last considered negative while mpneumoniae igm has gone decreased from 15 to 11 (10 is considered negative). So it is not very high and i feel strong, but my feet are constantly cold, and neck lymph nodes are painful and swollen pretty much 24/7 and i also get cold even though weather is not too bad and I dress properly.

Thank you very much

I don't see anything here to indicate what Mr.Dention took, is taking, was prescribed...  so can't comment at all on his treatment regimen.   Are we missing some info?

Read it again Mac. It's there.

Jen, could you copy and paste the entire post to me privately?  I actually don't see it.  I've had the same issue with an evite, where information was flat-out missing.  This only seems to happen when I use my netbook, so I apologize, guys...  I may not be seeing the same volume of info the rest of you are seeing, which greatly concerns me.

Thanks, MirHW.   I just restarted my netbook and came directly back here and, voila, now the info is intact. 

Jen, disregard (for the moment).  Cool  I think I'd best use the laptop for important things from here on.

Mr Denton, Zuzanka is correct.  The treatment for cpni involves three antibioticsi, given for a period of at least a year.

Please read the Getting Started section of the site and the Handbook (see the tabs at the top of each page).

Hey there and thank you for the reply

yes i know the correct treatment for chronic chlamydia and also mycoplasma, but since, since i was only slightly above what is considered normal,( 8,5 Igmi is considered positive ) as my results where 11,5 Igm, people who go for the prolonged 3 antibiotic treatment have igm's over hundred. So i thought maybe going for the very extreme method would be a major overkill in my case. Is'nt it true that Chlamydia and mycoplasma pneumoniae are very common infectionsi, only some develop the die hard chronic version of it. But then i again i am no specialist.

thank you

People who go for the prolonged 3 antibiotic treatment have igmi's over a hundred??? What? Since when? Wink

Before you presume about test results, ask Sarah how high her results were. 

This isn't a bug you treat on a sliding scale.  You're either in the full three-antibiotic treatment, or you're not.  Three meds/combined antibiotic protocol is what it takes to kill this bug, whether your infection is mild or severe.  (Your length of treatment-time might vary, due to the extent of your infection, but the treatment itself doesn't change.)
