Chlamydia Pneumoniae and Reactive Arthritis

I'd like to know:

-Could CPn cause a Reiter syndrom?

-Could Cpn cause urinary tract problems? If the answer is "yes", how can it do it?

-Could a Cpn's infection be asymptomatic?

It's so important for me to have answers to these questions!


Thank you so much 

The answer to both questions is yes, if my knowledge is comprehensive enough.  My arthritis is gone, with the exception of my neck, which, in my terms, is "being worked on" at this stage of my use of the Stratton Protocol. 

As for urinary problems, most of us here have some version.  Again, mine are completely gone.  This has never been easy.  It requires lots of discipline, hope, and faith in what you are doing, but when it works, it is incredibly dramatic, especially when you thought you were "done for".

The answer to your question(s) is yes, definitely.  You might find this read in the handbook of interest on how CPN causes diseases.
