Hello to all,  

im 37 years old and im currently having two kids, age 5,5 and 2,5 years old.

During the birth of my first one,while been on the surgical table , having a caesarean, after an epidural, i hear and sense the doctors above me, being quite troubled by what they were seeing. as it turned out, they were looking at full scale chlamydia, being all over the area, uterus, everywhere, having formed sth like spider webs. They told me that me and the kid were quite lucky,not to have any   complications.

Since this chlamydia thing was presented to me, as sth that i could overcome easily  with antibioticsii, i left it there, have breastfedd my child for 1 and a half years and going back to the gynaecologist, when i was basically ready for a second pregnancy. the doctor was utterly confident about his diagnosis , while i was doubting, so, at my own initiative, i went not only for  some sample from my cervic tested, but also i had a more sophisticated test  (PCRi) from my period, sth they said ithat was more credible. Both tests turned out negative. i f it wasnt for the doctor's diagnosis, based on the clinical picture of my uterus, i wouldnt have been taking the therapy he prescribed, as to my knowledge, i had no disturbances, or symptom, or anything. Nevertheless, both me and my husband, finally went on zithromax for 20 days, high mgs, 500 or 1000  per day, im not sure. my second pregnancy followed , no problems during it , as well as at the second caesarean. This time it was a different doctor, that he says he didnt see anything suspicious in the area(although i dont believe he paid much attention , when i told him).

Anyways, i thought all was fine and well, until  about 6 months ago, where i suddenly felt tingling, on my extremities,numbness,weakness on my arms,  great fatique, as if my brain was in a cloud etc. I had a brain mri, it came out clean, havent had proceeded with neck or bck MRis at the time, i was in a shock state. At the same time, i had some testing where it was found i fulfill two out of the three criteria for CCSVI. Started a regime with supplementsi, and diet, gluten free, good quality meat, no processed food, 10  ml fermented cod liver oil(my vit D was 23 at the beginning, hopefully now it is higher), LDN (im at around 2,5 mg). all these have helped considerably, i no longer am the state i was 6 months ago. still there are symptoms, a LOT milder. 

As i was thinking over all these pst years, i remember that lately, for the last 5 years lets say, i  felt as if i had a burden on my chest, tachycardia  at times, my pulses could reach 250  per min. especially after i was dong particlular movements that were setting the phenomenon in motion, at the hospitals where i went they labelled my condition as supraventricular tachycardia.i no longer experience that tachycardia in the last 4 months.

I wanted to ask you,if we take for granted that i had chlamydia (trachomatis?) back then indeed,  whether you believe that these they have moved upwards, to my chest area,  and cause my present troubles?

Certainly sth is wrong with my nerves, d like to help my self  by following the CAPi, but i would not know where and how to proceed from now and on. Here in Greece, i dont believe that doctors are much informed. thank you so much for  your time and effort to answer this, i aprreciate.

Hello Velia,

I'm surprised that no one has chimed in yet, but it may be that this site is about Chlamydia Pneumonia vs. trachomatis (sic). 

Here is the link to "Getting Started" -

I'm sure other folks will chime in sooner or later.  If it is indeed the std chlamydia vs. the pneumonia, this forum may not be the best place for you to find help due to it's focus on Chlamydia Pneumonia.

Best & Highest Regards,

Tom, thank you very much for your reply.

for the moment i have started taking NAC, so far so good, (it is only the second day). im experiencing some flu like pains in the chin/teeth and ears.

I have already been  at the Getting started section, reading as much as i can(also your inspirational experience with you and your son's case)may God give you strength and be by the side of your family for many more  years to come.

I would ne interested into knowing where do you get your supplies on antibiotics, nac, etc , if you do that from an online  pharmacy provider, as im looking for a credible, value for money and already checked source(i quess you could send me a private message, so it is not considered an  advertisement)

Thank you very very much for your help

Hi Velia,

Rick is fortunate enough to get his medications on prescription from his Doctor in Sacramento, CA.  Other folks have posted online pharmacies - and someone sent one to me.  What I've also heard though is that getting those meds online has become increasingly difficult.  I'll send you a private post of what I was sent, but I can in no way vouch or otherwise recommend them.  I was going to try ordering LDN at some point through them.

If you can find a doctor to oversee this - it may be easier for you.

Thank you for your kind and encouraging comments about Rick.  It's a tough battle he's in, but we feel we may well be on a track to kick MS' butt.

Best & Highest Regards,

Velia, you sound as though from your recent symptoms andtalk of CCSVI that you think you have developed MS which I suppose is a possibility, although it won't have come fom your c trach infection.  No matter because the same antibiotics can be used for either although c trach is easier to get rid of that chlamydia pneumoniae.  I will forward you some details about where to obtain abx from but you must read all the details very carefully from the Handbook and the Getting Started sections here and also David Wheldon's website: ............................Sarah
