Cpn without respiratory problems?


I was wondering are there others with Cpn that don't have respiratory problems? It seems common, but I guess there are always exceptions in something so complex. Or maybe you had it in the early days of the infection?... At least this is the case with my mom, the closes to respiratory problem she has right now is sore throat. 


I think one of the greatest mistakes most doctors make is to believe that you can't possibly have Cpn infection if you don't have respiratory problems. That, and their mistaken belief that Cpn can be 'cured' with a couple of weeks of abx.

C pneumoniae enters the body via the respiratory tract, but respiratory symptoms may be minimal or nonexistent.

Thank you both for clarifying this!

Here for my mother. She has been having neurological and other health problems that were unexplained for many years and just recently a test showed positive for Cpn and Mycoplasma. Still trying to understand more about Cpn, treatment and possibly start it soon.

It starts with a respiratory infection, but people don't have active respiratory infections throughout the illness.  Some of us can guess pretty well when we were infected, many years ago, but we haven't had overt lung infections for decades!
