Title

Prostatitis due to chlamydia trachomatis, inflammation from doxycycline

Body

Hi everyone, I finally registered on this forum - it was not easy) I don’t know English and use Google translator, therefore I can’t express myself quite incorrectly)

I have been sick with prostatitis for 4 years, most likely due to chlamydia.
Why am I writing on this forum about chlamydial pneumonia? Because our doctors could not help me, and I did not find a forum on chlamydia trachomatis.
But since these bacteria are similar, I’ve been taking Weldon’s course for 5.5 months with some adjustments.

Comments

The antibiotics I use
Doxycycline 100 mg. 2 times a day
Azithromycin 250 mg. In one day
Metronidazole 500 mg. 2 times a day, pulse 7 days a month
Rifampicin 450 mg. 1 per day
NAC - 600 mg. 2 times a day

I also take vitamins and supplements on Weldon's course.

But I have unpleasant side effects on doxycycline
After 3 months of taking 100 mg 2 times a day, I have a tumor on my arm (I will attach a photo to the letter)
I also had other side effects (they do not cause me much discomfort), a pea-sized tumor on my neck, inflammation of the adipose on my stomach (but after 2 weeks the inflammation went away), my tooth roots hurt, my heels hurt (now they are less painful)
Now 5.5 months have passed and I continue to drink doxycycline.

Why do I think these side effects are caused by doxycycline? Since my friend took (with chlamydia) only doxycycline for 20 days, and she first had skin problems on the 20th day (my skin began to exfoliate on the 30th day, but then everything went away), and then on 25 day bartholin's inflammation began omentum, became the size of a walnut. And she underwent surgery, and this gland was removed.

I continue the course of doxycycline + azithromycin + metronidazole + rifampicin. But the swelling on the arm remains and causing me discomfort.

Have any of you had similar reactions to doxycycline?
Joint inflammation in particular of the joints of the hands?

 

My name is Denis, I am from Ukraine. 4 years ago I fell ill with prostatitis, as it turned out to be caused by chlamydia, since then I have been trying to find a cure for this disease.

No, I had no similar reactions with any of the abx but what I will say is that there is no point in taking both azithromycin and rifampicin so stop one of them, preferably azithromycin.

Also the dose for metronidazole is three times a day, not two: two times a day for Tinidazole.

Last did you wait for three months before starting on Metronidazole? You should have. Read my post to Toilveagain about that.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Perhaps I was mistaken in writing the text: I did not have abdominal fat or sore organs. Lipoma, which arose long before chlamydia and had not previously been ill, was inflamed and damaged. Lipoma no longer hurts.
But today fillings in my teeth hurt, I also think that it is from antibiotics, before this course fillings have never been sick for 14 years.

Yes, I know that metronidazole needs to be taken 3 times a day, 500 mg each, but on the 2-3rd day of this dose I feel strong toshton and weakness, next time I will try again 3 times a day.

Yes, I started using metronidazole at 3 months.
I read your post in Toilveagain

I decided to add rifampicin because I had no improvement. And I decided to somehow improve the course, I found in one of Stratton's recommendations what can be added to doxycycline, azithromycin - rifampicin 300 mg 2 times a day

No, the prescription is three times a day, either 1200mg a day or 1500, depending on where you live.. 

The difference between 1200 and 1500 isn't that big and it depends on what you can get. 

My microbiologist husband told me that!
