Is this C. pneumoniae?

Hello! Last year I had a very bad reaction to N-acetylcysteine, had a fever for over a month and became very ill. After that I have been catching some kind of f"lu/cold/virus" all the time and feel sick and weird, like it's the same thing coming back over and over again - never getting rid of it. Doctors diagnosed me with asthma (did a metacholine challenge test) and I take inhaled steroids and a bronchodilator. I have had CFS/fibromyalgia type syndrome for a long time, and lots of weird symptoms. I decided to finally test mycoplasma and chlamydia pneumoniae.

I don't know how valid this paper is, I found it interesting and I'm posting it here. Any thoughts on this? http://www.actabp.pl/pdf/2_2017/2016_1327.pdf
Some excerpts here...
"Although the MICs of metronidazole used alone ranged from 15.63 to 31.25 µg/ml, they increased to between 62.5 and 250 µg/ml when combined with caffeine at its half MICs."

Writing a new front page.......

Last week, Jim finally came up with the magic number enabling me to register the cpnhelp domain name. Now the only three people who can do anything to the site are Mac, me and our new Drupal expert Joe. Once the registration has fully gone through, by the end of next week, the first thing to do in my mind, is to get Joe to put in place a new messaging system which actually works.

Work on new site starting very soon.

Joe from Yorkshire will be starting work on the 'new' Drupal site very soon. This way we can keep all the information built up since the site started but without bankrupting ourselves. One of the first things to be sorted will be the messaging. But first I must get some stuff finished for my friends over the Pennines, in Lancashire.

Both Mac and I have decided that things must change, and quickly!

New site coming in a matter of weeks.

Right, so the site is now safely ensconced in bonny Scotland, we have been deciding what to do next. The site arrived with two fatal errors and a long list of other things that needed doing, but I must say that I have not even bothered to look: I'm guessing from looking at the control panel, it is only for the new site, so I am guessing that everything from before is gone: it must be a characteristic of Drupal as an open source site.
