Help greatly appreciated - new to cpn and forum (dx)
I am new to this forum and a bit confused about many things relating to cpni.
A little back story: I am 25 years old and was diagnosed with Lyme disease two years ago and have been on and off antibiotic treatment since then. I recently was experiencing some chest tightness and a dry cough and my Lyme doctor tested me for mycoplasma pneumonia and chlamydia pneumonia. Both tests came back positive. I am currently taking zithromax (250mg 2xday), malarone, and bicillin injections for lyme. Here are what my test results showed:
Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG 1:32 (Neg:<1:16)
Chlamydia pneumoniae IgM <1:10 (Neg:<1:10)
My lyme doctor says he sees cpn often in Lyme patients. He mentioned I didnt have it initially when I first began seeing them according to blood tests. He also said that my IgG positivity was very low and that he sees patients with much higher numbers who are generally much more sick. He wants to repeat the bloodwork in 1 month including a test for my igAi. Does this mean I am difinitely positive? Will my zithromax treatment be sufficent? Is it possible for me to be "cured" of cpn? I just feel very nervous about this, having one more diagnosis to battle. Thanks.
