CPN in Synovial Fluid????
Over the past 3 days my walking has gotten progressively worse. My right knee is so swollen and painful I can't bend or move it. When I walk I try to "make up" for my peg leg with my good leg... now my left leg is starting to give me pain. I had a dr. appt and he seems to think it's bursitis. My FM symptoms are also worsening... again this all started with the addition of Azith. Katman, I know you said you had extreme joint pain/problems..... anyone else?
I read that mycoplasma has been found in the synovial fluid of RA patients which they believe causes the inflamation and RA -- is it logical to think that the same is, or could be going on here? By the end of today I could not walk at all...and have concerns this is going to be with me for a while -- it's not "waxing or waning" it's getting worse.
Identification of Mycoplasma in Synovial Fluid of Arthritis Patients
Since 1970, when it was first found in the synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis patients, Mycoplasma fermentans has been suspected of being associated with rheumatoid arthritis, but it may be associated with other forms of arthritis as well, according to this study. Other forms of mycoplasma have been proven to cause arthritis in animals.
To summarize the current study:
The authors state that M. fermentans is very common in non-osteoarthritic patients and may prove to be an important factor in the treatment of these disorders.
