Really ?? Does it take so long ??
I had a ASO titer positive that means strep throat .. But when i went in for an STDi panel it showed C pn +ve as well it was blood test.
All this started after my trip to africa you can read my story at

I tested +ve for C pn on 2nd august .
Contineous vibration in my left legs feet.. ( it comes and goes in other parts of the body )
Numbness on my right hand fingers..
right swollen tonsil with tenderness ..
get tired very easily ..
In the beggining it was just mild sore throat ( starting 2nd april ) then got other symtoms in May .
I have never taken any medication before in my life i am 24 yrs old male .. But this all started after my trip to africa.
But what doctors say and what i have read on many sites is that C pn can be treated easily with Azithromycin , Doxcyl etc. In 10 - 14 days.
I am taking 100 mg Doxcly 2x a Day & Azithromycin 500 mg once in the morning .
Doctor prescribed it to me for 14 days thats it he says you will be fine.
