Questions from a newbie

Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Cpni and Mycoplasma. My test result for Cpn IgGi was 2:54 and IgA was 0.882. Obviously positive but as far as results go are they really high? What levels do other people on here have? I have only been on Doxyi and Azithromycin and NACi 590mg twice daily, for 4 days now but as yet feel no negative affects. Does it take a while for these drugs to kick in? I keep waiting to see if I will get those horrible flu like symptoms that everyone else seems to get. Thanks I would love to get some feedback. Great informative site.

cheers from Julie in Brisbane

Recently diagnosed and starting treatment.

You may be disappointed. Cool  Few have horrible flu-like symptoms. Mostly, it's a subtle feeling as if the flu may be coming on, like achey muscles, runny nose or feeling feverish without really having a fever.  More people have little to no reaction to treatment; a minority have big dramatic experiences.

Regardless, the effects are cumulative.  You may think you'te having no reactions, then - wham - you're knocked flat.  It's early days, so just be grateful you're feeling so well right now.

Thanks MacKintosh. Are you able to shed any light on if my tests results are particularly high or if lots of people have these sorts of results?

cheers Julie


what are the dosages of the antibioticsi? I never had a herx reaction to the antibiotics either BUT my blood test results came down over 2 years. it was working!


Hi Mark, I am on Azithromycin 500mg half tab twice weekly, doxyi 100mg twice daily. I am to take antibioticsi one week on, one week off. Just started 4 days ago so I know it's early days.

cheers Julie
