Symptoms of Chlamydia Pneumoniae


The chlamydia syndrome - possible symptoms of chlamydial infection - by doctor Silke Brockmann

Chlamydia Pneumoniae symptoms

The contribution may be in the refereed or generated hypotheses about relationships of chlamydial infections with previously unexplained symptoms or syndromes I support with my analysis.

I look at my patient clientele since 1993, more than three hundred cases who experienced a particular constellation of symptoms, while positive chlamydia IgG antibodies (titers between 1:100 and 1:3200) were detected. The antibody was determined without differentiation of the three serotypes (C. psittaci, C. pneumoniae, C. trachomatis). Based on the observation that these patients experience an improvement in symptoms with antibiotic treatment - I came, I developed the hypothesis that there is a Chlamydia syndrome that is characterized by the following symptom complex - doxycycline or erythromycin (derivatives):

  • Pain in several joints, mainly the small, and additionally in one or more, particularly large loads (for example, knee, shoulder, right wrist, hip). The facet joints are mitbefallen in the cervical or lumbar spine;
  • Dryness of the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, eyes, itching of the ears, irritation of the urinary tract and the rectum;
  • Burning of the eyes, blurred vision, visual loss;
  • Occurrence of individual itchy, scaly skin rashes;
  • Irritant of the respiratory tract (especially larynx) and bronchi, chronic inflammation in this area, obstruction of the bronchi, misjudgment as an allergy;
  • Pain in the ovaries and uterus in women, menstrual aggravation, then the occurrence of acute bladder irritation or shock-like conditions;
  • "Burning" in the stomach area (sometimes dull pain), bloating, malaise in the "belly" (Peritonealreiz?);
  • Occurrence of "heart stings" pain in the heart, extra beats of the heart;
  • Strong, sometimes insurmountable fatigue or sleepiness (such as in subacute encephalitis) and simultaneous pressure with a strong neck muscle spasm of the cervical spine; (Meningealreizung expression of inflammation of the small vertebral joints?)
  • Pain in the tendons, frequent localization: upper arms, heels (Achilles tendon), soles;
  • Pain in several teeth.

The insurmountable fatigue was the symptom that was most common treatment occasion. The rest of the constellation of symptoms has similarities to clinically defined syndromes such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

According to my measurements are the complete disappearance of symptoms associated with negative chlamydial antibody formation. The existence of a prevalence of no clinical significance, I can not confirm from my data.

As sources of infection come to my knowledge not only exotic birds, chickens and pigeons in question, but also cats, rabbits, domestic rodents and infected humans. Patients often live with strikingly positive chlamydial antibodies homes with mold growth, so that it would consider whether the obligate intracellular chlamydial growth of fungi may serve as host.
